Six More Weeks of Winter?!!!

While the Winter doesn't really affect us up here in Northern California where we have mostly sunny days....a lot of my Friends and Family are on the East Coast and six more weeks of winter doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun even though this year it seems like its been pretty light on the snow. In honor of Groundhog Day and hoping the little rodent wouldn't see his shadow....we had a silly morning with "Groundhog" pancakes!! I had seen these somewhere and knew it would be fun to make...My Kiddos had a good laugh!!

Did you know that there are about 23 or so Groundhogs around the US and Canada that are used on February 2 to predict whether or not there will be more six more weeks of winter?! Only three of them Punxsutawney Phil {Philadelphia}, Malverne Mel, {New York} and Balzac Bill, {Alberta} say six more weeks....all the rest like Staten Island Chuck, {New York}, Shubenacadie Sam, {Nova Scotia} and Wiarton Willie, {Ontario} all say Early Spring!!! That's quite a difference in favor of an Early Spring!! What do you think will really happen?

Tonight's Valentine Countdown prompt is to watch a "Love Movie", fittingly enough we will be watching Groundhog Day will Bill Murray....Groundhog Day with Bill Murray.....Groundhog Day with Bill Murray...haha...{If you've seen that got that....if should really watch it...its quite funny!!} I have a little groundhog pudding cup dessert planned for them too for after dinner!! and just so you know....I totally don't care if they think I'm crazy!! {Which I'm quite certain they do!}

Happy Groundhog Day!!


  1. Fabulous pancakes Colleen.. I can't wait to show the kids in the morning.. we love the Groundhog Day movie!

    Sorry it's been a while since I called.. my Dad died suddenly about 6 months ago and knocked my world upside down to say the least.. I feel orphan'd!

    I am looking forward to catching up with your blog. Love and best wishes, Gez.xxxx

  3. Those are the CUTEST pancakes ever! I can't wait to make them for my kids this year. We always anxiously wait to see if Shubenacadie Sam will see his shandow here in NS.
