Making Breakfast Fun

Today started on a good note. After having a very restful sleep session, I actually woke up to find that everyone else was fast asleep. I made my way to the kitchen and started to setup for the breakfast that I had mentioned to my family the night before. It included Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs with Onions, Tomatoes and Black Peppers and a tall glass of Orange Juice. While working on the Pancakes, I heard my boy stirring and decided that two brains where better than one. I got him ready and pulled up a Bar Stool chair next to the stove to watch me make his favorite breakfast meal “Pancakes.” Since I had him next to me I was able to fix him a stack and have him start on them while I continued with the rest.

Around 3/4ths of the way in, I decided to make the above letters and have my boy guess which would come first. He was so happy to see the first letter and guess it was his initial. After the pancakes where cooked, I heard my baby girl trying to open the bedroom door so I dressed her up and brought her over to join in the fun. She does not like Pancakes yet, but can eat Eggs like a wood chipper.
Once done, we all moved onto the kitchen table where I fixed myself a stack on Pancakes and a side of scrambled Eggs which my baby girl helped to eat. She enjoyed the Eggs with Ketchup and her Orange Juice as her favorite drink. We took our time finishing breakfast and even fixed a plate for Mommy once she made her way to the kitchen. There where smiles all around and very satisfied faces as well.

Later in the day, we headed to the patio and I pulled my box of scenery materials which I have been acquiring for some years now. I finally started to build structures for my Mechwarrior Figures which I have had for years. I am a big Mechwarrior/Battletech fan and got into the game back in 1999 once I got my first computer. I will blog on the pieces later on but for now, enjoy the Pancake pictures.
