Happy 17th Nathan!

We had a wonderful time celebrating Nathan last week. (I think this is the third time I've written this post. Blogger is not cooperating lately especially when it comes to pictures)

Nathan inspired a new birthday breakfast around here. Because of his idea, none of the December birthday guys had bear shaped chocolate chip pancakes which is our tradition. They had his 'Basage recipe.'

And Basage is a combination of bacon and sausage that are cooked into a pancake and oh so yummy. (precooked of course) and then you pour some pancake batter made with EGGNOG instead of milk, in an oblong shape on your griddle, then lay a piece of bacon down on it and a sausage link on top of it. When it is bubbling and ready to flip, you cover the meat with a little more batter right before flipping. And Voila! Basage! ;)
My bear face making days may have officially come to an end.

We played a "Nathan Quiz." He is the kind of guy that lets you know (more than once) lol what he is into since he's so passionate about everything in life. So, it was pretty easy to take a quiz and list his favorite song, favorite movie, favorite phrase etc... I also had questions about his gifts/talents from God, what you admire about him and what your favorite memory with him is. He got to pick the winner, who won a candy bar! They made a nice keepsake for him to save. He said he felt very loved! : )
And he certainly is! A few of the things that I love about Nathan are his sense of humor, passion for praise and worship, love for piano, his insight into the Word, and his sweet spirit. Love you Natie! Happy Birthday!
