Happy Birthday Pancakes

Happy Birthday PancakesWe have a tradition at our home.  We celebrate all special occasions by starting our day with homemade pancakes.    We celebrate birthday’s, graduations, promotions and any thing else you can think of with pancakes.  My recipe is very basic but my kids will tell you that I make the best pancakes in the world.   It’s Riley’s Birthday and this morning I surprised him with not my ordinary pancakes but Happy Birthday Pancakes.

He was so excited about these pancakes!  It made me realize that so little means so much to our kids.  It is those little things that we do that create memories to last a lifetime!  Do you make Happy Birthday Pancakes at your house?  What are your special traditions that mean so much to your children?

Happy 11th Birthday Riley! No matter how old you are, you will always be my baby!

    Hi I found your site from PMP’s Wandering Wednesday and it is great that I did because this idea of birthday pancakes is ideal for my daughter. She is a pancake demon and always wants them. This is an excuse for me to make them extra special for her.
    Thanks for the heads up!
