the pancake king

It began well over a year ago. Whenever the kids slept at Poppa's he'd make them pancakes in the morning and they'd tell him he made the best pancakes in the entire world. Whenever the Kids slept at Granny's she'd make them pancakes in the morning and they'd tell her the same thing. So Granny and Poppa enjoyed a little friendly trash talking back and forth until they finally decided to settle it once and for all with a pancake cook off on Pancake Tuesday.... obviously. Last year ended in a tie with Poppa winning best decorated pancake and Granny winning best no frill pancake. We all had so much fun that the kids decided we needed to make it an annual event.

This year Poppa and I went head to head in the cook off and just like the Apples to Apples debacle of Family Day 2014...... well I don't want to come out and say he cheated, but I got the impression that the judges were strongly influenced.

Yes, Poppa is the 2014 Pancake King, but I, as runner up, will fulfill his duties should he have to leave office before his term is over. The girls took turns throwing a pity vote my way, so at least I didn't get completely shut out. And in happier news I never have to make Uncle G-Mac cookies again.

Actually in really truly happier news, the entire night was a laugh fest from beginning to end. On top of being pancake day it was also Mike's birthday, so we had cake and we sang and we told a million stories and stuffed ourselves silly. There isn't a better way to spend an evening!

And now I'll spend the next 364 days working on my pancake recipe so I can attempt to dethrone the Pancake King in 2015. Wish me luck.
