Dad's homemade pancakes (Halloween style)

So I gave my sister a little bit of a hard time this last week when she called me to tell me of these pumpkin rolls that she had made. I'm not talking about the yummy cream cheese filled ones I'm talking about a roll colored orange, and a green top. I told her wow you have way to much time on your hands. Well after I thought about it for a while I thought of the breakfasts my dad had made for us as kids. Just the little things like smiley face pancakes, or mickey mouse pancakes, or food coloring in our oatmeal. Silly little extra time consuming things that as a kid were the best most amazing breakfasts ever. So I thought why not? Why not take the few extra minutes to make my kids day that much more special. Today was my kids Halloween parade, so I woke up a few minutes early to make my dads buttermilk pancakes with a Halloween twist. I think they turned out pretty cute they not only made my kids smile, but I couldn't help but smile at what I had done for them and how happy they were. Now I thank my dad for the few extra minutes he spent on us kids to make our breakfasts special. Happy Halloween!!
Thanks Lisa for the motivation.

Yes Jaedens costume looks crazy, that's what happens when you lose your real costumes mask the week of, so the night before end up at Wal-Mart. Yes the selection is not very great for those that wait last minute he is supposed to be a skeleton lord
(don't ask me what that is. The picture looked way cooler on the package.)

Panguitch weekend

 CJ took Friday off so we could go up to Panguitch as a family. My mom and aunt Melanie came up Thursday night, and on Friday morning CJ took the kids up hunting while we cleaned out my grandma's storage room in her basement. It was a lot of work but so worth it when it was all done, and we had a good time doing it. My family also had a great time playing in the mountains. They of course didn't see anything, I didn't think they would especially with my 3 kids going along. Other then that we spent a lot of time relaxing, watching movies, and hanging out. A well needed break from everything. This is a new face Treyson has started doing it was so funny we were getting kids ready for bed and he kept doing this face. We were laughing at him and he just kept doing it over and over again. Silly boy I just love my kids so much!
