Be Jolly By Golly!

Merry Christmas everyone! It's hard to believe that this year is almost over! And Christmas is already almost here (it's Saturday! Eek!)!

In honor of the big day, Jen is hosting a blogfest. The Be Jolly By Golly blogfest, to be exact. And it's a chance for all the bloggers of the world! (ahem, sorry, got a little over-enthusiastic there) to show their Christmas decor and share fun holiday recipes. Such a great idea, right???

I'm going to start off with the most important thing: the food. Or, in this case, the drink. This is the time of year I like to snuggle up next to the fire, put on a good movie, and sip on a cup of creamy hot cocoa. There's nothing better than that! So here's my recipe:


It's so creamy. And delicious. I think I may need to make me a cup right now! But before I do, I'm going to share one last thing with you all. Here's a picture of my Christmas tree. I'll forewarn you that my digital camera is broken, so I snapped a quick picture with my cell phone. The quality probably isn't the best, but nevertheless, here it is:


I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
