Hot Chocolate Station

Every Friday in our house is “Cookie Friday”.

There is even a t-shirt.

Really.

Almost every Friday, my daughter wears her Snoopy t-shirt with cookies.

She used to ask everyday after school if she could have cookies.

And my answer was always to have something more healthy.

But, she started to see a pattern.

On Fridays, I tended to say yes.

So, every Friday, when I pick her up at the bus stop, she always exclaims: “Its Cookie Friday!”.

At first, I was reluctant to get “locked into” always serving cookies on Fridays, but then I decided, what a great memory for them to have of their childhood.

My hope between now and Christmas, is to step up my game even more.

I even went so far as to create a hot chocolate “station”.

Because what is better with snowman cookies than hot chocolate?

  1. I luv it!
    Been toying with creating a hot chocolate and coffee station myself. I think you are giving me the little push I need. Hmmm.. Luving the vintage thermos :-)
    Cheers, Gee

    What a neat tradition. :) I love the Christmas sprinkles on top. :) I may have to do this with my kidlets.

  3. What a wonderful tradition! I love the idea of cookie Fridays. Your hot chocolate station looks so cute!

  4. YUM! What a fun idea. I might do this myself, that way maybe I won’t have so much whining during the week, if they know they are getting a treat on Friday…then again maybe not :)
    Looks beautiful as always!

    How wonderful! My problem with a hot chocolate station–well 2 problems–how do I stay out of it? And, how do I keep my elderly cat who loves marshmallows, from jumping up there? She doesn’t jump on much anymore but she would jump to the moon for a marshmallow! Have a great day!

  7. Those sweet gestures burn all the calories, Mum.
    Well done for creating new memories that will warm their little hearts for years to come… would you adopt me?! ;)
    Thank you for sharing!

  8. Love it Laura…what a wonderful tradition you started with your girls that I am sure they will pass on to their children…It’s all about the memories….and love that “Holiday” thermos!!

  9. what a great idea-my girls would love cookie friday! Of course, soon enough it will be every-day-is-Christmas-cookie-day!

  10. No doubt there will come a time when you wish you hadn’t established Cookie Friday but it will be a sweet, sweet gift to the children that they will likely pass along to your grandchildren. :-)

  11. Love the cookie Friday idea. I set up a hot chocolate station for our daughter this year. She’s already using it:)

  12. My son would love this (then again who wouldn’t)!

  13. I usually set up a hot drink station in our kitchen each winter too! I love the idea of the christmas sprinkles!! I will have to add these this year. :)

  14. this is pure sweetness Laura!
    I think cookie friday is a perfect way to make memories!
    you will be doing it when they bring home their spouses someday;)
    I am slowly getting around to getting my letter written…I am SO sorry..ugh!
    love ya
    xo

  15. Yum! Love the new tradition, as I so remember the cookies my Mom did, and adore that thermos. I am getting excited about trying a hot choc station so many wonderful takes on it–my little one will enjoy it.
    Take care, Kris

  16. This is darling and happy and I’m adopting it at my house . . . what a great excuse to sit down for a few minutes after school with my boys!

  17. Oh my goodness, what an adorable little station! And I have to say, this will be one of your daughter’s best memories. Something special like “Cookie Friday” is hard to forget :)

  18. Love it! My daughter has started referring to Fridays as sweets (candy) Fridays, since that’s the only day I let her have them (although the month before Christmas and a couple of weeks after all that goes out the window since she is allowed a few of her birthday sweets and/ or the chocolate from the advent calendar every day). Love the idea of a hot chocolate station…so foreign to us in Europe to have hot drink stations yet I often see them on American blogs and love the idea of them.

  19. Thats is so sweet!! What memeories!!! I need to do something like that!!
