Give Memories-SIPPITY Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 12/20/2016

Ask any parent and they will tell you they have forever etched in their mind fond memories of their children opening their presents on Christmas morning. One such memory is of my daughter, Karen, when she was four. Five days before Christmas she was given the cutest little stuffed teddy bear, wearing a red and white Santa hat. She named the bear, Jonathan. For the next four days Karen took Jonathan everywhere she went-to Sunday school, the movies, play house and even helped Mom make Christmas cookies.

Around 5 AM on Christmas morning I heard Karen get up and go downstairs to see if Santa came. After I awoke my wife, we quietly tip-toed down the stairs and sat there and watched Karen who was dressed in her white velvet robe wearing the same red and white Santa hat she wore to bed the night before. The first present she opened contained new slippers, which she immediately put on. She then placed Jonathan in the empty slipper box facing her. She then reached for a box wrapped in gold paper that contained her favorite chocolate hot cocoa mix. Seconds later the box was opened and to this day my wife and I will never forget the look on Karenís face as the contents of the box seemed to glow with joy as Karen looked down at the box of Sippity chocolate hot cocoa mix.
