Pretzel Making Time!

I try to do some kind of activity with my Grandkids when they come over…

Fall break had started… and I was lucky enough to get them for a day and night…

They are quite busy… with football practice, basketball practice, school… and friends…

We had planned on making these once before but, ran out of time…

So tonight we decided we would make the pretzels from a kit I had bought…
