Back to the days when Husband and I were dating, we would have pancakes on Sunday. We used to sleep in, then go to IHOP in big L'town, America. It was something easy and we fell into a routine. Then we had two kids in two years, and all that sleeping in and going out for breakfast came to a screeching halt.
So we started a new family tradition.....on Saturdays Husband gets to sleep in and I get up at the a$$ crack of dawn with the kids. (please tell me at what age they start sleeping in??) Then on Sunday I get to sleep in ...Husband gets up and makes pancakes and sausage with the kids.
During TDY's (Army speak= short trip away from your family, usually a week or so), I always try to keep things as close to our normal routines. Of course this morning, I did this pancake tradition but with a little twist.
I started storing all the seasonal things like Santa pancake molds, Christmas dishes, etc with all the holiday storage. Note to self: do a post on how I organized these things...it makes it so easy this year. This weekend we put the tree up, decorated the fireplace, and little touches of Christmas all through the house.
Anyhow, this morning, I managed to do the whole thing one more time without Husband....I made the cutest little pancakes in the shapes of Santa, stockings, sleds, and a snowman. I am not that much a pancake eater anymore, but I did get in my token cup of coffee with my new Chocolate mocha creamer. Yes, I like girlie coffee.
Happy Sunday, y'all
PS....Boomer Sooner....any time OU beats OSU it is a good weekend!
