Happy Thanksgiving ~ a day later

Fri. November 26, 1926, we were busy with baking, ironing and etz.

Thursday,was Thanksgiving. It was cloudy and foggy with a drizzle about all day. Nobody appeared for dinner. We had chicken, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, asparagus, crab pickles, cole slaw, bread, butter, saffron bread, cookies and pumpkin pie. This afternoon the Uncles & Aunts came down. The Aunts didn’t want to come but Uncle Edd wanted too. I suppose he was feeling badly because Johnnie’s didn’t ask them to their dinner. The Aunts thought the weather was too bad to come. They went home again before dark. It was warm today and very slushy this afternoon. There were several thunder storms this evening with rain and hail.

Wednesday was a nice day. Mother made some saffron cake & pies, Ruby made cookies. We asked Aunts Mag & Til & Dan to come down for Thanksgiving if Uncle Edd & Aunt Annie were going to Johnny’s but they hadn’t been asked yet as of Sunday.
