A Snowy Holiday Evening
Here in our little town the snow is falling….huge BEAUTIFUL flakes. I love how it is stacking up on the furniture, highlighting the branches of our beloved crooked willow that started as just a 2 foot twig 7 years ago!
I thought I would attempt to make a yummy batch of homemade hot cocoa with a drizzle of sweet caramel…
…but although it was pretty, it didn’t quite work out, the kids didn’t care for the dark chocolate taste and it didn’t stay blended very well. So if anyone has a great hot cocoa recipe please share it with me.
I love to treasure hunt in 2nd hand stores and I found a couple of great treasures that I added to our holiday decorations this year. A Pottery Barn mercury glass crackled glass ornament still in the box for just $2. It was the perfect addition to our tree this year!
…and this white distressed urn I found at the Farm Chicks show last March and I LOVE it! I think I paid $5 for it. It is perfect to hold some sparkly glittered fruit as a centerpiece for our table.
I am excited for this week. Michael is home from college, Jason only has to work on Thursday…and I hope that Kenzi will join me in some last minute shopping as we prepare for Christmas and our much anticipated Christmas Eve celebration!
