It all started innocently enough when Little Man was little. I made hot chocolate cool enough for him to drink and we sipped cocoa while trimming the tree. Then we added music the next year and before I knew it, Hubby and Little Man began anticipating Polar Express Hot Chocolate every year while trimming the tree. There've been a couple of years where I've been frantic and just wanting to get it done, but I've been able to slow down and make the hot chocolate since it means a lot to them.
This year with our cocoa we also watched the movie "The Polar Express"
No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you...the lights on our tree do change colors!
With the mantle and tree decorated it officially feels like the Christmas Season has started!
