The boys came over on Saturday morning about 11am. We had lunch and then we put up a little artificial tree that's been in the basement for years. It isn't anything fancy. Just a basic tree that I bought many years ago. We decided to just do a small tree this year instead of the usual large live tree.
Both boys helped decorate the tree for a while and then Brandon wanted to bake chocolate chip cookies by himself. He did a great job. I had one while it was still warm and the boys had a couple each. Very tasty.
While Brandon baked cookies, Jordan wanted to know if he could finish decorating the tree by himself. I let him. After all, these boys are getting older and want to be independent. That allows me to keep an eye on them, yet let them spread their wings. Jordan really enjoyed decorating and the tree doesn't look half bad considering. I will post a photo in a day or two.
Around 4pm, it was time to take the boys home. I packed up some of Brandon's cookies and some candy that my friend JoAnn had sent over for them. They will have treats for the entire week.
It was cold here today with a biting wind, but we still don't have any snow. Many areas all around us do and snow is predicted in this area for tomorrow.
Wishing everyone a great week. If you have winter storms in your area, remember to be careful on the roads and be safe.
