I Know What You Did Last Summer: Christmas in July a la Kocanuts

Right around the same time as Walnut's summer soccer camp, oppressive heat strangled the Pittsburgh area.  We went to the pool, a couple of  water parks, the water steps and the splash pads to beat the heat yet, we needed to find some respite in the good ol' A/C.  We decided to have a Christmas in July day filled with hot chocolate, chocolate covered marshmallow pops, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and the planting of mini Christmas trees.

I cleaned up sprinkles for a while after making marshmallow pops.
Peanut was very upset when I told him no more marshmallow pops.
Sadly, our cat ate the seedlings of the boys' Christmas trees about a month after we planted them.  We tried to plant new ones but they're still too small to decorate for Christmas '11.  Oh well, I think Santa will still stop to see the Kocanuts.  Happy Holidays!
