I think my little bee tells it all in this picture!
"enough is enough"!
Okay, So today is Sunday, January 5th and we were to drive our little granddaughter and her mom and dad to the airport (and we did)….only to find out that United Airlines cancelled their flights …..UNTIL THURSDAY!!!! Oh my gosh…she gets to stay with us for 5 – YES FIVE – more days!!!!!! Yipppppeeee….! That means…….
more baths with nana
more reading books with nana and papa
and quiet time with Uncle Jonny
chill time with Auntie K
more driving time
and playing with dolly time
what a wonderful family I have!
Okay back to work (deb needs to focus)! :0) Today I'm bringing you my Mini Coffee Cup Snowman! It's been so cold here and so snowy and with more snow to come tonight (the reason my baby girl gets to stay an extra five days)! that I decided to bring you a cute snowman project instead of showing you new stuff from the 2014 Occasions Mini Catalog.

So cute isn't it?!!!!
And here is the recipe I use (Paula Deen’s Dreamy Creamy Hot Chocolate)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Mini Marshmallows (optional)
You will need to add:
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
6 1/2 cups hot water
In a large saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla and salt; mix well. Over medium heat, slowly stir in water; heat through, stirring occasionally. DO NOT BOIL. Top with marshmallows, if desired.
Tip: Chocolate can be stored in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Mix well and reheat before serving.
