Birthday Pancakes


Sometimes I've found that the simplest little things help families come together to create the most meaningful traditions and memories. A few years ago, my cousin told me how she makes special birthday pancakes shaped like the number of the age her children were turning. (Thanks, Tiffany!) I started the same tradition at our house and my kids look forward to their special breakfast every year. I especially like doing it because we often have to schedule their parties a few days before or after their birthday, so these pancakes are a great way to make their actual birthday morning special!

INGREDIENTS:

pancake batter
whipped cream
sprinkles

DIRECTIONS:


 

Use the pancake batter to form a number. It will spread out quite a bit as it cooks but my children never seem to mind that the finished pancake is somewhat deformed. Squirt a few dollops of whipped cream onto the pancake (I try to do the same number as their age) then shake some sprinkles over the top. While certainly not the healthiest breakfast, it's definitely a memorable one and makes a great start to their special day.


One happy Birthday Boy!

  9. Are you interested in helping others? Can you handle and care for people who learn differently and have other behavioral problems? Do you want to make a difference in a young child's life? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you might consider a career in special education. Below is a breakdown of the short and long-term responsibilities of a special education teacher.http://www.thesisexample.info/

  13. Google music upload program and Spotify music collect it from desktop programs and groove music pull music in one drive. Except for play music, it is easy to add your personal collection is easy to drag them and upload each service also. to play music select the music folder inside the program to upload the music. It is not as easy to import music to any services.Download the music where you want to split up. click the selected one which you want to download.
