Yoder, Kansas

Today we took a day trip to Yoder, Kansas.  It was kind of joke... our name is Yoder. 

We had teased about going there for months, so planned to go on Black Friday, while everyone was shopping.  We took the long way around, and took about 4 1/2 hours to drive there on a chilly Friday morning. Once there, we ate at a big restaurant, the Carriage Crossing, and then stopped in a few of the other shops to buy "authentic" Amish goods. 

We stocked up on things for our Christmas baskets for Keith's family, and I bought some great summer sausage at the meat company which had wonderful meats of every kind in their cases and freezers.  We realize that we made jelly that looked just as good as the ones we saw for sale, so we are giving ours in the baskets!

We came back a shorter way, that only took about 3 1/2 hours.  The Little Girls were overjoyed to see us, and the henhouses quickly shut up, pets fed, and pajamas put on (for me).  I am going to spend the rest of the holiday weekend putting away the fall decorations, cleaning, and getting Christmas decorating started.  We have a surprise to show you this coming week, courtesy of Keith!
