Personal Notes:
Christmas was a favorite time of Grandpa and Grandma Holmly's (Leland and Minnie). We would gather at their Nanson, ND home. The outside of the house was decorated with Christmas lights and the tree was always in the living room. Grandpa loved lefse. He rolled Grandma's meatballs inside the lefse. Others in the family ate their lefse either with white sugar and butter or with just butter.
When Clayton and I married, his family used brown sugar on the lefse. We always had ample lefse at the Parrill house, as Marie also made delicious lefse.
Such good memories.
