warm wishes

'ello doves. I hope your weekend's been magical! My holiday was everything I'd hoped it be and more. 
Spending time with both sides of the family was a treat, the food was delicious in every way, and Santa was ridiculously good to me. Gotta love the Nice List.
Today, however, our focus has been on the trees (and the snow) outside. The entire northeast is in the midst of it's first real blizzard of the season. Above is the scene outside my bedroom window as of 3 p.m.; add about 8 more inches, wind, and some darkness, and you can imagine how it looks now. As a Syracuse grad I'm not at all phased by it, but the region as a whole is on high alert. To combat the cabin fever, my sister and I have been playing with our new toys: Just Dance 2 and Buzzword. To combat the chill, we've turned to our family friend's annual gift:
The best homemade hot cocoa mix on the face of the Earth. I can say that statement too, I've tried most others ;). I am enjoying it now as I do every year, each evening beginning on December 25th, and as follows...
Step 1
Step 2
Step 3

Wherever you may be, I hope you are cozy, safe, and within arm's reach of chocolate. Whether it's of the drinking or eating variety is up to you :).
