If You Give Your Kids Hot Cocoa

If you give your kids hot cocoa...

They'll look at the marshmellows and it will remind them of snow.

They'll want to go out and play in the snow.
So you'll have to get all their hats and coats and gloves on.

While they're outside they'll smile very big.

And that will make you smile very big.  So you'll take a picture

They'll comment on the snowflakes in your hair and you'll talk about the little pieces of heaven falling all around you and it will make them think of angels.

So they'll make some in the snow.

Then they'll remember that they are not angels and they'll pummel you w/ snowballs.

When you say "no more" they'll say "oh man" and that will remind then that they wanted to make a snowman.

Unfortunately their snowman will look more like a pile of ice cream...or mashed potatoes and they'll want to taste it.

Eventually they'll realize that they are soaked and freezing and want to go in.

They'll want you to dry and warm their clothes so they can go out again later.

While their clothes are getting warm they will want to get warm.

So they'll ask for some hot cocoa.

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful, peaceful snow!  And cocoa.  Here's a fabulous recipe!
