Silence is Golden!

Right now I'm sitting in a hotel room in Airdrie (25 minutes North of Calgary) Alberta, listening to the girls sleep. What a nice sound.

Since we arrived on Thursday, the girls have not's been a busy few days. They're usually bad sleepers, but with all the excitement, being a new place and Lauren having a cough that keeps her up all night, we are all pretty sleep deprived. And cranky!

Yesterday Dave's niece got married and our girls were flower girls. It was a beautiful wedding filled with love, happiness and lots of laughs. And the girls were so darn cute.
Lauren and Olivia have been so excited since we arrived (and the weeks leading up to arriving) because not only did they get to be flower girls and wear fancy dresses, they also got to visit their cousins that live here! Cousins that they haven't seen in a year!

I don't know if you've ever traveled with little kids, but it's a lot of work.
That's why I don't have my post ready for today. All those late nights usually spent working on posts, were spent making lists off all the stuff we needed to bring and packing. So. Much. Packing.
And we're only here for 5 days.

Well, today during my quiet time, I came across a recipe for Hot Chocolate Truffles. It was a very appropriate recipe for a day like today because it's so cold here in Alberta. This afternoon it was -8 degrees Celsius. For a west coaster like myself, that is COLD!
So what are hot chocolate truffles? They're chocolate truffles rolled in crushed candy canes or cocoa powder, that you drop into a mug of hot milk. Seriously! Sounds awesome right?

Now we're not big hot chocolate drinkers at our place, the girls like it of course, but I'm pretty sure I'll be trying this recipe out sometime soon.
I think the girls will enjoy the process and there's an educational lesson involved too. You know, the whole melting of the chocolate and making the hot white milk into hot chocolate...
That's what I'm telling myself!

Check back soon for a Mommy, Can I Lick the Spoon? version of Hot Chocolate Truffles! In the meantime, here's the original post from
