piggie marshmallow hot cocoa mugs

brrrrrr!
i mean 
BRRRRRRRRR!!!

do we have to talk about the weather?
i think not, as enough has been said already.
and yes i know i am in florida but yesterday the high was 55.
.....
ok i'll shut up now.

anywho, 
i was completely inspired by this 
so i made something to keep us warm, 
and hope you make some too.

lez doooo thees! 




(they're from walmart)
(i forgot to add 2 more not shown for the ears)
the marshmallows stick together themselves.
oink!
it's a piggie line up. who done it?
no worries about having perfectly matched legs. 
it's all good.
is that a bottom with a pig's tail 
or a fat belly with an outie?



i bet it is.
let's pig out on these.

yes i must agree with you there. 
but are you warm enough?
so now what're ya gonna do?
well, can't say i blame ya. i mean as long as you're warm right?

snort snort.

      so then, well, you know what came next. HA! i say we pig out on the cocoa together Michelle and have some cupcake marshmallows too heehee :>D
