I am trying very hard to fight off the cold that is trying to settle in my body. I’ve even begged for a three-day delay, but I don’t think my rationalizations are carrying much weight. Thanks to Mimi, we did get to make our Christmas pancakes this morning.
We have a Sunday morning pancake tradition around here most of the time. Mimi made a red batch and a green batch using her favorite pancake recipe.
The girls were excited to learn that we would be cutting the pancakes into Christmas shapes (using cookie cutters) and decorating them with mini M&Ms. “What? We get to eat M&Ms for breakfast?” Success!
They weren’t much of an artistic masterpiece, but the girls had fun and enjoyed eating them…especially the M&Ms.

Less stress, more connecting this holiday season? Yes, PLEASE!
From the arrival of fall to Halloween to Thanksgiving and Christmas, the last four months of the year can be a wonderful opportunity for making family memories and spending time together, but they can also be stressful as we try to collect ideas, recipes, and activities to try together.
Stephanie Morgan, founder of Modern Parents Messy Kids, a site that’s been voted Best Craft Blog in Parents Magazine and one of babble.com’s Top 50 Craft Mom Blogs, recently released a new eBook to help us have a little less stress and more time to connect with family this year, and I’m so glad to be an affiliate for such a great resource.
Stephanie’s goal is to make it easier on all of us to enjoy the holidays with our kids. Hands-On Holidays is 100 pages full of her family’s very favorite ways to connect as a family over the holiday season. I love the convenience of having so many ideas in one place, and most of them are simple enough for even my toddler to participate in.
The book includes picture book suggestions, DIY decor, activities, and treats. Bonus sections also offer even more ideas to enjoy. Click here to view more details.
