Unexpected Praise And Grandkid Craft Day

Unexepected for sure:  Karen  from  By Grace and By Gumption has awarded me a Leibster Award.

Here are the rules:
You must thank the person who awarded it to you, paste the Liebster Award on your blog, pick 5 blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave them each a comment on their blogs letting them know the good news!  This was not an easy thing for me.  There are so many blogs I read and love.

Pictures from Craft Day 
We made the Hersey Kisses Tree - this was not an easy task, Hand Wreaths, some Gingerbread Ornaments.   I tried to take pictures, but it got a little crazy so not many, but I did get a couple  of the trees, and the one of the Wreaths.  Those toothpicks for the kisses turned into be very dangerous when sticking into the cones and the kisses.  My two oldest Grandkids were not there, Jada who is 17 and was at the mall(of course and then work) and Malik who is 14 was at his basketball practice.
