Welcome Winter Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Welcome Winter" blog hop.  You should have made your way here from Kim.  If not, please start at the beginning with our hostess Ashley .

Not only is today the first day of winter, but it's also my birthday.  I'm so glad you are able to join me on my special day.

For this blog hop, I put together a page kit I bought when I went to the Creative Keepsakes convention in Charlotte, NC.  Who doesn't love hot chocolate?  My girls are obsessed with hot chocolate.  Each Sunday, they get to enjoy a cup at donut time at church.  They recently started adding french vanilla creamer.  Now I just need pictures.  I have two ideas in mind.  One is my girls and their friends making and drinking hot chocolate Sunday mornings or my girls enjoying hot chocolate at home.  There we have french vanilla marshmallows they can add.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  One lucky person leaving a comment will be selected to receive a RAK.  To be eligible, you must be a follower of my blog.

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented Michele.

Here is today's line-up in case you get lost.
