1 1/2 c Flour
2-3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/4 c milk
Mix dry ingredients together
Beat the egg with the milk and melted buter, beating to combine
Using a wooden spoon fold the egg mixture into the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter without over mixing
Heat a greased griddle or pan, once hot pour a small amount of batter into pan, once bubbles start to appear it's time to turn the pancake.
Serve with your favorite syrup, peanut butter or jelly or have them with just plain old butter
**you can add fruit to the pancakes, my suggestion is to add the fruit right before you turn the pancake over**

So for her birthday I decided she could have a sleep over party again (last year was a nightmare) and this time all went well. She enjoyed all the gifts she received, which is amazing for her.
Here are some pics of her party.

This year we went over to Wenatchee for Christmas, the trip over there was a nightmare. It took us 7hrs to get there, when it only should have taken us 5 at the most. So my loving husband drove the entire time - thank you honey! So instead of taking Stevens pass over (it scares me in the summer time I have panic attacks, could you image me driving over in the winter) so we decided to take Snoqulaime pass instead. The drive up to the summit was the worse part, with the normal snow falling there was also snow drifts (never seen one until that day) which made it impossible to see at times. We saw so many crazy drivers causing accidents it was horrible, at one point I told Russ to just take me home that we weren't going, well we keep on trucking. By the time we got the summit I was on the verge of throwing up (had the bag in hand and ready just in case), and tried to roll down my window but I couldn't (that was a terrifying moment for me) thankfully Russ was able to get it down so that I could get some fresh COLD air and I felt much better. After we took a much need potty and food break we got back on the road again. Going down the pass wasn't that bad, just ice and snow in most places the rest of the way and with a couple more pit stops we made it to Wenatchee by 3pm boy was I glad to be there.
Amanda and I made dinner, boy do we have fun doing that. Thanks Amanda for being my co-cook :)
All the kids had a great time and enjoyed all their gifts and time they got to spend with their grandparents, auntie Amanda and uncle ray.
After being there for five days it was time to go home, so know we had a decision to make which way do we go. After looking at the pass reports I made the decision to take Stevens (your heard me right) I didn't feel like spending 7hrs in the car again with four kids, and after we made it down Stevens (I slept the whole way) it wasn't too bad, next time we will just take that way there.
Happy Holidays from the deJong Family!
P.S. yes you see Preston in a blond wig, Madie got it with one of her gifts and I thought it would be cute to see how he would look as a girl :)
