Lazy Saturdays are the best!

My posts are a little out of order since I posted about Halloween yesterday, but I had these cute lazy pictures from Saturday and a yummy recipe that I couldn't resist sharing!
Since the Hogs played away on Saturday, we were able to stay home and relax that morning. Micah got up and went hunting around 5, and I didn't expect him back until late morning. I woke up at 8:30 when he came back in the door and set the alarm off...lol! Who knows how late the kids and I would have slept if that wouldn't have happend! :)
Anyway...he came home early, we stayed in our pj's, ate a yummy breakfast, and watched the Razorbacks play on T.V. That night we had another bonfire with some friends....it was a fabulous, lazy Saturday at the Gibson's!
Here are a few sweet pictures of my babies!

For breakfast that morning, I made a new recipe I found for Pumpkin Spice Pancakes. They were delicious! We ate our's with scrambled eggs and thick sliced bacon. The pancakes weren't too sweet, so they were just perfect with cinnamon sugar and warm maple syrup on top. Yum!  
Here is the recipe:
Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

1¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
¾ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
Dash of ground ginger
Dash of ground cloves
1 cup milk
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 tbsp. vegetable oil or melted butter

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and spices and stir with a fork to combine. Mix together the milk, pumpkin puree, egg and oil or butter in a liquid measuring cup. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk together just until combine. (The batter may still have a few lumps – that is okay.)

. Heat a greased skillet or griddle over medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, add a 1/3 cup scoop of batter to the pan. Let cool until bubbles begin to form on the top surface. Carefully flip with a spatula and cook the second side until golden brown, a couple minutes more. Repeat with the rest of the batter until it has all been cooked, regreasing the pan as needed. Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, and/or whipped cream.

We made our's with half whole wheat flour, and they still turned out great. Hope you enjoy!
