Sometimes I like to wake my children with a cup of hot cocoa in the morning. This is my sister Sharon's idea. She does this usually once per season or holiday and uses the cutest cups, which match the holiday. She even has "Luck of the Irish" for St. Patrick's Day. I have not been able to find cute Halloween ones yet. I checked yesterday and the day before at thrift stores, but didn't find really cute ones.
Since these are appropriate colors for fall, I'll use these. For my daughters I give them their cocoa and say, "Good Morning." I let them wake up slowly and drink it. For my seven year old, I sit on his bed and read a story while he drinks it. My oldest son, Harrison is now liking coffee better, and sometimes beats me to the kitchen, so I am not doing this for him as often as before. At Christmas time I like to put a peppermint candy cane in the cup. I like to follow Sharon's suggestion to do this just once in awhile to keep it special, and not daily or even weekly. Have a lovely Saturday ladies. Hugs, Kathi
