Oh and one more thing, I'm not about to give you the nutrition facts on this hot cocoa :-)

I know everyone one around here is anticipating Christmas very excitedly. Emmaline is already having problems sleeping and had to get up extremely early. She passed the time playing "Corn Maze" on the couch with her stuffed animals. :-)
Merry Christmas!
