Hot, hot, hot... hot chocolate! (insert catchy tune from Polar Express here)

Nothing is more satisfying than hot chocolate on a cold day. 

And nothing feels better on fingers cold from playing in the snow than a warm mug to wrap them around. I think my kids may go play outside in this Alaskan winter weather just because they know that they will get hot chocolate when then come back in.

Insert a satisfied "ahhhh" sound here. 

Contemplating all that is right with the world now that her fingers are toasty and she is warmed from the inside out. 

The hot chocolate mustache will stay on her face for the rest of the day. I'm convinced she doesn't have any nerves in her face because she claims she can never feel any of the food stuck to it. I think she just doesn't like napkins. But, none of that matters because her belly is warm and full and everything is fine. Chocolate can do that. It's powerful stuff.


  1. Chocolate and good Mommies make the world go round :)

  2. That's exactly why my kids go outside, for the hot chocolate! In fact, they're outside right now. :)
