A Blog Award and a Funny Little Story

What a sweet surprise I got from Felicia at Raggedy Creations!

~The Liebster Blog Award~

Liebster is a German word which means "dearest" or "beloved", but can also mean "favourite". The aim of the Liebster Award is to draw more attention to some really lovely blogs with 200 or fewer followers.

Thank you for thinking of me, Felicia. :)


If you happen to be a recipient of this award, please do the following:

Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.

Share your 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

Post the award on your blog.

Hopefully the 5 lovely people you chose will give the Liebster award to 5 blogs they like as well.

Now this is the hard part, choosing only five people! I think all of my blog friends are awesome! Please check out my blog roll and visit them. Of course my most special blog friend is my daughter, Katie. She asked me to pass the award along to someone else, but I'm sure she'd enjoy a visit from you!
I know that some of my sweet friends' blogs are award and tag free, and that's OK. If any of the five below do not wish to participate, that's OK too! :)

Here are the 5 sweet ladies I have given the Liebster Blog Award to-

Renee' from Glow Academy . Renee' is one of my very first blog friends and has given me awards too, most recently the Kreativ Blogger award. Thank you, Renee'. :)

Vicki from Our Happy Haven

Sharon from A Few of My Favorite Things

Laura from All Good Gifts

Ginny from Let Your Light Shine

Please stop by and visit all these lovely ladies.


Now, for the funny little story. As most of you know, I am the secretary for our church's Christian school, so I see and hear all sorts of things every day! Well, yesterday I had to watch the second grade class for a little while and overheard the cutest little conversation. This is the dialogue between two second grade girls.

Kyleigh: Our dog had ten puppies and now they're making a lot of messes!
Alyssa: Well, just put them in the basement.
Kyleigh: We don't have a basement, just a garage.
Alyssa: Well, put them in the garage then!
Kyleigh: We can't put them in the garage! Spiders might crawl up their noses!!

Isn't that just too cute?! I laugh every time of think of it. :)

I hope you have a wonderful evening, and thank you all for stopping by.

Take care,
