Marshmallows + Puppies = Merry Christmas!

Towards the end of last week Zach had some fun in the kitchen and made homemade marshmallows and hot cocoa for us to give as gifts. I think he got his recipe from Alton Brown. Although, I can be too sure...

This is what the marshmallows looked like while they set over night in the pan. We tested out some toasted coconut toppings and red and green swirls.

From there we cut them up...

And them put them into little bags with the hotcocoa and some cute tags that I designed! ( I had to help somehow!)

These were passed out to our friends and family this weekend in Zach's hometown of Nevada, Mo. We are going to make a second batch to handout to my family in St. Louis this weekend.

Now just for fun are a few phots from this last weekend with Boston and Millie (Zach's Mom's dog: a pug-a-poo).

Pretty much sums up their friendship.

When we got home Boston got a haircut.

Such a handsome little fellow!

Hope you all are enjoying time spent with family this week! Remember the reason for the season, Merry Christmas!
