It's been such a busy weekend for these GrandParents and GrandLoves, Big Kid, Middle Kid and Little Kid.
 They mixed up cookie dough, then spooned it on the pans.
Check out the size difference of those Cho. Chippers.
I think more cookie dough was eaten than baked.
 Then there were cut-outs to be made,
stars, hearts, reindeer and bells.  Candy canes, 
churches, angels and snowmen., all 
for the cookie jar, they will never last til Christmas.
 Many games of Go Fish were played each day, and
 Multiplication War.  Of course our GrandLove won
nearly every single game, he's so quick with numbers.
 A quick lunch and we were all off to the tree farm
for pictures by Frosty,  The Bough Man and
 weeeee baby trees with lots of room to grow.

 Somehow, wee ones never can quite ' hold it ' so
it's off to the bushes they go. 
( I do not know a Northern boy who has not done this. )
 the tree is up, the kids are strung and lit
 ( hey, wait a minute, isn't that the way it's supposed to happen? )
 Rosy-cheeked, and tuckered out from a busy weekend,
 ...enough is enough...
Several times we heard the boys say,
" This is the best day ever! "
that's good enough for us.
I know this Granny is hitting the hay.
Tomorrow promises another long day.......
of driving a couple hours on icy, snow covered roads, 
really, Bill, we cannot cancel this time?.

God Bless and stay safe in your neck of the woods.
