Family Traditions

One of the best parts of family life is the traditions that we have. My son a few weeks ago asked if we could start having pancakes on Sunday. He saw it on Curious George. George liked Sundays the best because it was pancake day. "Why can't we have pancakes on Sunday?" he asked. We decided as a family that we could do something special for Sundays.We negotiated it to be breakfast for supper on a Sunday.

We have some fun family traditions. One of our favorite is Twisty balloons for Birthdays. A couple of years ago I bought some twisty ballons at the dollar store. We looked online and found some insructions on how to make ballon animals. It was a blast. We decided that Birthday balloons it was going to be. It is fun, and the kids are so creative with it. We love to share this tradition with others. Earlier this month we were able to share with our cousin. It was her birthday and we were able to make it fun by sharing our ballons with her.

  1. I love the fact that your son thought it would be a good idea since it saw it on George! My son wanted to have pancakes with syrup everytime the episode came on where George made syrup. It seemed to come on a lot so I had to keep pancakes in the freezer all the time. I try to make muffins or some special breakfast treat over the weekends but it isn't always pancakes, much to the family dismay :) Hope your breakfast for dinner idea works for your family!!
