12 Days of Christmas: On the Twelfth Day of Christmas…

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

12 festive pancakes
11 acts of kindness
10 finger handprints
A 9 piece Christmas felt tree
8 paper snowflakes
7 words for artwork
6 hand-made ornaments
5 gifts for L
4 festive letters
3 photo shoots
A 2 piece no-sew blanket
And a new spot for our Christmas tree

So we survived the ice storm of 2013!  We were without power for about a day and a half and currently don’t have water thanks to a broken pipe but at least we are now warm!

On the top of my priority list now that power is back? A blog post, of course! 🙂

Day 12 brought a yummy festive breakfast… chocolate pancakes in festive shapes!

These were made using some pancake mix (I’m not a from scratch kind of gal), cocoa powder and cookie cutters in holiday shapes.

Mix up your pancake batter and then add in a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder.

Then pour the batter into the cookie cutters on your skillet or pan.
