Then, someone said it, I don't recall who said it first, but we all agreed, "It's time to make hot chocolate!" Oh, yes. It most definately is time to make hot chocolate. So this evening while the older boys and daddy were gone at small group we snuck to the grocery store and got the goods.
Our first cup of hot chocolate of the season.
It's funny the things that have become traditions for us.
What are some of your traditions?
edited to add hot chocolate recipe:
1 box powdered milk (8-10qt.size)
1 box Nestle Quick (15oz)
1 coffee creamer - dry (16oz)
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
Mix all ingredients in very large bowl, store in airtight container. To make hot chocolate, fill cup about 1/2 of mix and add hot water. Enjoy!!!

There's something wonderful about Fridays at our house. We have a kind of laid back school day and start getting ready for the weekend.
The weekend, full of so many possibilities, esp. weekends where we don't have to do anything. Weekends where we can each spend quantity of time doing what we love to do... separately, yet together. This weekend will be filled with lots of reading, sewing, playing outside in the cool 89 degree weather, maybe some woodworking and I'm sure a little video game action.
And, of course, being entertained by Esther. Look what she did this afternoon!
Hope you guys have a glorious weekend, too!

On the way home we saw a cute baby squirrel that really wasn't scared of us. It reminded us of the chipmunks in St. Elmo, Colorado.
Did you see that orange blurb at the end of the video? That was a very serious biker who almost ran mama over because we were taking up the entire width of the trail!
