Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes

 If you are searching for a new family tradition for Christmas then look no further.  Our family started making "Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes" three years ago.  The first two years I made regular pancakes and added sprinkles but this year will be much different.  

Instead of using a pancake mix we are truly having a birthday party when we use a cake mix and home made frosting and sprinkles to celebrate our Kings birthday.  

Thanks Rachel Ray who inspired me to make these pancakes:

This is very simple all you need is a yellow cake mix, sprinkles, powdered sugar, vanilla, butter, milk, and candles.  

Make the cake mix as directed then add sprinkles.  (My picture does not show the red,green, and white sprinkles very well.)  Cook the cake batter just like pancake batter.  Make a frosting drizzle with the remaining ingredients.   Here is a recipe you can use for Frosting.  (This recipe does not use butter but I did because I like it a bit more creamy and I added green food coloring to fit the Christmas colors.)  Mix and taste till it fits your taste buds.  :)  

Add the frosting to the pancakes, add more sprinkles, put on the candles and then sit down Christmas morning and celebrate His birthday like you do your children's by singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Each family member also gets to blow out candles for Jesus.  Your children will ask for these pancakes again... yummy cake for breakfast no complaints at this house!   

My daughter was concerned because we did not have enough candles for Jesus!  I love her innocence and heart!  Maybe next year we will buy the number candles!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
