miscellany moments

just some randomness from the past week… 

we pulled the big green coat out along with a hat & mittens. little M just loves the outdoors… even if it is freeeeezing out.

it pays off to have a broken collar bone. 😉  grandma & grandpa R sent little M a couple packages in the mail full of lots of fun activities to do while attempting to give that little arm a rest.

 we also enjoyed a warm cup of hot choo-coo-late {a first for little M too!}

it’s actually a very tasty recipe… with no refined sugar.  probably the best hot chocolate we’ve had yet!

the recipe came from my staple blog {100 days of real food} and i adapted the recipe just a bit for what i had on hand in the kitchen… 

Hot Chocolate 

1 1/4 cups hot milk {1 or 2% works just fine}
1/4 – 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp hershey’s dark cocoa
1 tsp honey

Directions ~ 

  1. Mix together the honey, spice, cacao or cocoa, and vanilla
  2. Add hot milk (and espresso if desired)
  3. Top with whipped cream and a dash of pumpkin spice or cinnamon
  4. Serve immediately

the verdict from little M… “it tastes good daddy!” 


oh, and we just returned from a long weekend in kc celebrating the wedding of my sweet sis janelle to her now husband, tyler!
more to come on that in another post soon… but for now, a few sneak peeks…

little M and his 2 cousins were the ring bearers for the wedding as they got to sport these cute suspenders
and bow tie!
