Mix all ingredients in and store in container or jar. Mix 3 tbs with 6 oz hot milk or water.

Hot Cocoa

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa

Oktoberfest II

Just a few pictures I never got around to posting from our Oktoberfest part last year.

Rock Creek Farms

In October we took a trip over to Rock Creek farms to get some pumpkins, straw, and gourds before our Oktoberfest. They had a few animals Gavin enjoyed see too.
