Special Christmas Gift!

My granddaughter, Ashlee Krick, had a special project in school just before Christmas. She and the other students decorated special Christmas sacks, colored a pasteboard Nativity scene (which is also a stand or holder), and then put a candy cane on the Nativity scene.

When the teacher asked each student who he or she wanted to give his special Christmas gift to, Ashlee told her she wanted it for her grandpa!

Here I am with Ashlee and her specially decorated Christmas bag.

Thank you, Ash, for giving me something extra special for Christmas. I love you!

Pretty neat since only a few years ago she wouldn't have anything to do with you. Time (and a baby doll) sure changes things.

Cute pic. I had something that I wanted to share with you. I don't have an email so just thought that I would post it under comments. I think you'll like it. Today Megan was talking about Nigeria. Something new for her. I told her that I alreay knew about Nigeria because I had heard a missionary speak who was from Nigeria. Then I went on to ask her if she knew what a missionary was. She said that they were people who came to your house and want to stay all night. Grandma had just had the Meltons for a Missions service and they stayed at her house. I thought you would appreciate this one. By the way, I did my best to set her straight. I think it's one for the books. Hope you had a great Christmas. Looks like your working on it.
