Can you believe Christmas Eve is exactly one week from today?! We have been having so much fun this holiday season and are looking forward to spending Christmas in our new Colorado home. Zelda couldn’t be more excited for Christmas, and we surprised her with a few early Christmas presents when we took her to the Swissotel Santa Suite.

Family and the excitement over Santa and pancakes are my favorite things about Christmas morning. This year, I decided to give our traditional pancakes a fun twist and infuse them with Gingerbread flavors. Who can say no to Gingerbread Pancakes? Not me!
