Cold front=hot cocoa time

Ok, so I realize we aren't having "winter" weather here yet, but we did get a cold front this week! I was thrilled! Anytime the weather drops below 60, I feel its time to bust out the hot cocoa. And anytime I have hot cocoa, I HAVE to have my Biscotti to dip! We made a Sam's Club run last night(yes, we know how to party on a Friday night) and picked up, among other important things, the big jar of the Nonni's variety Biscotti. We still have a TON of hot chocolate packets left from last year(that stuff doesn't go bad, does it?) and we used my Cocomotion, a MUST HAVE for hot cocoa lovers! It felt like fall last night! Hooray!

The girls enjoying their hot cocoa. And Cali lookin a little crazy. I think she had too much too drink:)

I"m such a wimp now -- I was freezing yesterday too so I had my nice hot bubble bath. I needed some hot chocolate too. Should have thought of that one!

We rarely drank hot cocoa in Corpus, but since we have moved to Helena we have had hot cocoa almost everyday! Crazy!!

I am a fellow Biscotti lover myself. I'll have to pick some up. It's definitely Hot Chocolate weather around here! (although I drink it year round...)

I love hot chocolate! I really need to get one of those cocomotions. In the winter I am always having hot chocolate to warm up.

Whoa Cali, look out! I love her funny little face. And yes, I love this weather. I have the a/c shut off and the windows open. It's wonderful- this time of the year!

That looks pretty tasty. I don't think that I have ever had Biscotti before. It will be quite a while until we get that kind of weather :(.

Moon Devious said...

I'm lovin that look on Cali's face! The littlest ones always go crazy on sugar. Did you put it in a sippy cup? Lol. I agree, this weather is wonderful... its gotten cool enough in the mornings now that I can finally have my coffee in the morning again... ( i cant handle it when its hot outside. ) Yay!

Mmh, hot cocoa. It was 32 degrees this morning. Guess that counts as a cold front right? Oh, wait. That is just fall. What I wouldn't give for a Texas "coldfront."

Cindy said...

You are pretty crazy for your cocoa. I'm surprised you waited this long. I think the coldest front of the year is supposed to be here in a few days ~ get ready!!!!!

Rebecca said...

Yum.... that looks tasty!

The Bright Family said...

I do the exact same thing . . . but we haven't even had a slight cold front for the hot chocolate to make an appearance--they say tomorrow though . . . we'll see. :)
