For the past 15 years, I have been surrounded by boys! Yes I have 2 daughters, but girls will be girls and they always seemed to enjoy being at their friends. My son and his friends were always at my home...and it became a second home for all of them. Now they are young men, and have ventured off in different parts of the country. Last night my son, my granddtr and I and 2 of the "boys" who are in town  on vacation from school, made a mad dash up to the mountain to pick up a snow board, for a trip they are planning right after Christmas. We had a great night of popcorn, pancakes and hot chocolate. My son and his friends went out to play in the snow and then hit the hot tubs, while I made my famous BODACIOUS BISCOTTI.

Tonight 2 more return, one from college in NewJersey and one from San Diego where he is in the USMC! I am so proud of you all! We had a dinner of chicken apple sausage, and fried potatoes tonight before they took off to pick up the bros.
