Jed is the Thanksgiving dinner cook. He handles the entire meal by himself, allowing no one else in the kitchen. That night we gear up for a birthday party for Jed, who's birthday is the 28th, and Lola, who's birthday is December 9. Friday morning we all go out to get a tree, then spend most of the day decorating it. After supper we hold a scavenger hunt for presents, then scramble into a free-for-all opening stocking stuffers. It has turned out to be everyone's favorite way to do the holidays.

I even got a set of clues to follow.
And her present was in the oven.
That was only part one. On to stocking stuffers.
Second annual Thanks-Birth-Mas - a success.
The week before Thanksgiving we had 18 inches of snow, 14 more the night before the holiday, and two inches of ice the next week. Time to get out of Dodge with that camper. We left Dixmont on December 8, crossing our fingers that we would make it over the hill. On to the next adventure.
