Making Little Things Special

I love making holidays, events, and birthdays special. I can still remember my mom making heart shaped waffles for me on my birthday (my birthday is the day before Valentine's). I hope and pray my kids will one day look back and remember the special things we did for them on their birthdays and holidays.

My son, Luke, turned 5 this past weekend (yes I can't believe it). He loves pancakes (and all breakfast foods a lot). So I made pancakes using the recipe I shared earlier this week. I then took a cookie cutter in the shape of a 5 (I have cookie cutters for all holidays/seasons and the alphabet and numbers) and made him special pancakes. He loved them. Here they are:

It doesn't have to be something elaborate. This only took me an extra couple of minutes, but it was worth it to see his face.
