The Hot Cocoa Station has made its return!
Every year, about this time, I set out a tray with everything we need to make a cup of cocoa after school. My kids like Nestle Quick hot cocoa mix that you make with milk. We also add marshmallows and sprinkles just for fun.
This year, I let my 13 year old take the picture of our hot cocoa station. He just finished up photography class in middle school and I thought it would be fun for him to play around with bokeh a bit. He started by taking just a regular picture with the tree in the background. I suggested he get the tripod and then gave him a few settings to try. I was kind of proud of myself because it’s not too often you will hear, “Whoa, that’s so cool!” when a 13 year old is directing a comment toward his mom. Yep, I made that happen! I might need to mark this day on the calendar.
The cocoa station that sat on our kitchen table last Christmas had candy canes and Christmas mugs too. So many choices, so little time.
If you have kids, set up a cocoa station for them! It’s really cute and it’s the highlight of a cold winter day!
