We were so lucky to get out of town for a few days at the end of January to enjoy some sun and fun in Key Largo.  We did a little sight seeing, but most of our time was spent at our little resort at the beach, playing at the playground, or finding some great restaurant to feed us mass quantities of fish :)  We ate way too much on this vacation but oh was it so good.  M was such a good girl the entire time and really proved to us that she is a pretty good little traveler if she has her Mammy P in the back seat with her to keep her occupied 100% of the time :)  My mom was great and went with us to help out with Miss Maizie so that Tyler and I could both do just a smidgen of relaxing. :)

Anywho, one day we went to this really neat marine animal park, Theatre of the Sea, just down the road from us.  It was so cool an Maizie loved all the shows especially the dolphins.  Tyler even got her a stuffed dolphin while we were there, which she quickly named Twister, after one of the dolphins in the park.

Hot Chocolate anyone???

Once we started going sledding on what seems to be a daily basis with all this snow we've been getting, I decided it was time for Maizie to be introduced to the most wonderful post sledding beverage, hot chocolate.  I am sort of no fun when it comes to things like this because I know once I introduce it, we will always have to have it.  So what happens when Mom forgets to buy more hot chocolate at the store and we have just come in from the best sledding adventure ever ???  Mom learns to make homemade hot chocolate :) Check out the recipe here, its really quite good, but not good for you! 

Anywho, like any little kid M loves to have a million mini marshmallows with her hot chocolate, while momma likes to add some irish cream (McCormicks's, of course), don't judge.  Its cold out and someone has to get through the next few hours before daddy gets home.  But seriously, if you like Irish Cream, skip Bailey's and get McCormick's its awesome!

Ok, so back to my cutie... here are some cute pictures of her making her hot chocolate and trying to decide what she wants to cook for dinner :)


"More momma."

"You want one?"

Dropping them in. 

Quite pleased with herself. 

Stir it up. 

Just cute :)
