snowman hot cocoa tubes

sometimes the holidays can be tough for some people.

don't fret snowman head.
i am sure we can do something for you with these ornaments from hobby lobby and a coupla sharpie paint markers.
yup.
they're coming!
wow! now that is a crowd.
what're ya gonna do now ms. snowman head?

Ooo! fancy!
i think you need a body now.
how 'bout a hot cocoa body tube?

yeah, that's the ticket!
 (man am i showing my age or what?!?)
so let's just buy some hot cocoa mix in individual serving sizes. we'll add some mini marshmallow bits and christmas sprinkles then stick it in these tubes you can get here or here
then we'll hot glue their heads onto the bodies and use more twine to give them a scarf so they won't catch cold.
oh and we'll hot glue some pretty buttons on too.
Ooo! fancy again.
guess you're ready for a holiday party!
whoa that music's LOUD!
huh?!
not quite sure she understood.

uh oh, there are some strange folks heading your way too...
quick!
hide in the crowd!
whew! that was a close one.
better call it a night.
you seem tired.

hey wake up or you'll miss Christmas!!!
maybe being alone isn't so bad after all huh?
i mean, whether you spend your holiday 
with or without people,
have some cookies with a cup of cocoa, and enjoy yourself.

  and celebrate the season.
