The holidays bring so much excitement and child-like wonder…it's a happy time of year and a time when we especially take family traditions very seriously.

It's not just about the big day and presents under the tree. It's about being together and sharing this experience as a family.

We have a few fun traditions including new jammies and a holiday movie like Christmas Vacation on Christmas Eve.

It's definitely the holiday treat making season, as well; one of my favorite traditions is making hot chocolate, filling our travel cups, and heading out to see the lights.

With beautiful holiday lights in mind, I decided to try making homemade hot chocolate. The boys love hot cocoa, and it's just a given any time it snows or it's cold outside. It's kinda become our thing; it's a way for me to let them know I care, a way to share something we all love.

They love it when I put the tea kettle on, pull out the hot cocoa and marshmallows, and prep our favorite cups. Jaden loves a reindeer cup, and Jacob has his glass mug.

This particular recipe is very rich, very chocolatey. We love adding a little creamer to our hot chocolate, but it's not something we always have on hand.

So, we did a li'l something different with that too. I made a homemade raspberry creamer. Ooo la la! It's so good! Frozen raspberries, a little Half & Half, a little sugar, and you have your own homemade creamer.

Of course, don't forget the marshmallows or whipped cream. Personally, I love to stack my cup with loads of mini mallows. So yummy!

Tonight if we're not out viewing the beautiful holiday lights in our neck of the woods, I think I may just sit down with my boys, a cup of homemade chocolatey goodness, and a good book.
