Pancakes with Mimi - A tradition

 I have said it before and will say it over and over again, there are no better pancakes in the world than Mimi's!  Believe me, I have tried and tried, but for some reason mine never come out half as good as hers.  I have lots of practicing to do. 
This has to be one of the biggest traditions at the Bowerman house in Moulton.  From the time Joshua was born up until Macy right now, my kids love to help Mimi make those pancakes.  Marah is known to wake up early to see if Mimi is ready to start cooking.  Marah is becoming quite a good cook herself.  She has always loved helping in the kitchen.  She can actually make brownies all by herself.
The pancakes are always from scratch! 

 The kids all love to pat and turn the pancakes.
 Even Joshua...
They love those little pancake dots from the drippings:)
Usually Mimi and the kids are making pancakes for 9 of us (soon to be 10 - Ryan and Kellie's little one will make #10).  The big white platter is always stacked with 4 rows of unending (seems like) pancakes.  We never run out!  And they are DELICIOUS!

The Princess Breakfast

Forest Hills, as a fundraiser, put on a "Princess Breakfast" that was lots of fun for Marah.  She loved getting all dressed up and having the girls put on her make-up.  She looked beautiful!
