hot chocolate

So, Mary wanted to make Valentines for her classmates. She decided to make hot chocolate on a stick (I know, random, but we saw it on the internet a while back). She did a great job–did almost all of the work herself, in fact!

Chocolate!

She stirred it for roughly 100 years, until all the chocolate was totally melted.

Very melty chocolate:

After she put it in the pans, she added sprinkles, because all sweets are better with sprinkles, she tells me.

Lots of sprinkles.

She put a heart marshmallow on each one.

Wesley even helped her (although he had opted for the box of Star Wars cards, himself).

Festive, right?

She put a card on each one.

And now she has a box of them, ready to go. I’m not sure why Wesley looks like he’s trying to garrotte her in this photo–in real life it was sort of sweet but in the picture he looks like he’s up to no good.

So I ran across this photo of Mary at almost exactly the age Wesley is now. Compare:

Funny how much Mary looks like a girl, though, and Wesley like a boy.

So, remember when I made Mary a patchwork cube for Christmas? (No? This one.)

Well, Mary never really cared much about it–she had a brief span of playing with it when she was about 1-1/2 and that’s it.

Now Wesley loves it and suddenly it’s her favorite toy.
