 Leah: “It’s a boy.”

    🙂 you always post something neat and fun. I'll be making pretzels tomorrow, (well later today! LOL) but a little differently than you all do. I'll be making what is called Jerusalem pretzels. 🙂 I did a little history research on pretzels, and well, find this way is best for me. 🙂
