3 things

3 things that make my day

1. My house smells like fresh bread AND I have the bread to prove it (after two bread failures in 2 weeks).
2. I'm looking forward to a splendid weekend with my sisters. (Aren't they gorgeous?)
3. The calender tells me I'm officially out of my first trimester, leaving most queasiness behind, and I'll make you dinner to prove it. Baby Center tells me that at 13 weeks, my baby is at least the size of a lime! Nobody told my waist-line to grow in proportion to the size of a lime. It's thinking cantaloupe (at least).

Conference pancakes

One of our favorite family traditions is during conference weekend, making Grandpa D's pancakes between Sunday sessions. We've been doing it for as long as I can remember. My grandpa is a taskmaster, his way is the only way. Make sure the egg whites are at perfect peaks and DON'T pat the pancakes! These days he sits back and let's his posterity do it. But we still follow his rules.

We flip and flip and flip...

The kids wait...impatiently.

The prefered topping is strawberries and whipped cream. Then we eat until we are sick. It's the best.
