Hot Chocolate ~ Visit to the country

 Not having children of our own (not by choice) Mr. G and I are very blessed that we have God Children and extended family with children. Our home comes alive whenever they visit. Today (Friday) is a PA Day for Miss M. and she is spending a couple of days with us starting last night.

So after a huge spaghetti and meatball dinner (which she ate very well), a bubble bath and some colouring, it was almost time for bed. But not before we she had some hot chocolate.

She chose to use her teapot for serving the hot chocolate... 2 green tea cups served as our mugs 


Of course it's not hot chocolate unless marshmallows are served, according to a 6 year old ~ you have to have marshmallows..


She really enjoys her teapot .. it reminds her of the gardens in summer. I would agree ... there is even a little bee atop the lid. It's small size is perfect for little hands.


She loves using the green tea cups, easy to hold with both hands...


WOW!!!! LOOK ITS PINK!! THE HOT CHOCOLATE IS PINK!!!
 the excitement in a little ones voice is priceless!!!


After adding the "what really makes a hot chocolate" marshmallows....


It was time for the TASTE TEST!!!


Well , I would say ... pink hot chocolate was a HUGE Success!!

  3. Pink hot chocolate! HEAVEN!
    And according to THIS 43 year old ... I agree - the marshmallows make the hot chocolate! They are a MUST!

  5. Dearest Celia,

    That would have been a LOVELY evening's ending! What a sweet girl and I compliment your for safeguarding her identity! People often don't consider that. But we all know how caring and loving the two of you are.
    That little bee on the teapot is so cute. Will make for a great dream subject for any girl that age.
    Thanks for sharing those precious moments. And yes, we do share the children of our loved ones. Borrowing them and sharing the love and joy.

    Have a great weekend, stay cozy and receive lots of love dear friends!

  9. A pink hot chocolate party sounds as much fun as a tea party. I guess if the whole thing takes place in pj's, it's the best!

  11. I love that even though you do not have children of your own, you have children in your life that you can love as your own. I am sure you are making a huge difference in this little girl's life! I have two nieces who I think of like daughters. Sometimes DNA is not required to make a Mother out of us. xo

  14. MMMMMM looks great!
    I love Hot Chocolate, though I have never had pink and yes even the 38 year old agrees, marshmallows are a must!
    We are unable to have children, so we have a great time with the nephews and nieces.
