SPICER -- The House of Jacobs had one of its busiest days of the year on Monday, shipping boxes filled with lefse so they arrive in time for Thanksgiving.

Now they will move into a higher gear for the next month, preparing and shipping the Scandinavian holiday treat all over the country before Christmas.

The House of Jacobs retail store in Willmar may have closed in August 2008, but the company is still operating and busy as ever when it's time for lefse.
