December 2012 a Holiday Themed Weekend

Let’s go back to December 2012 when our family took part in the “It’s a Wonderful Run” 5K in Seneca Falls, NY. Bedford Falls the town in the classic Frank Capra film “It’s a Wonderful Life” is claimed to actually be modeled after Seneca Falls. Anyway this was such a super fun event!

After the race we went to dinner with friends and spent the night. Sunday on our way home we stopped in Skaneateles, NY for their annual “Dickens Christmas” event. The village of Skaneateles hosts this event for four weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Again another really fun time.

Cheers!

This would be our second race (5K) as a family. It's a Wonderful Run Seneca Falls, NY December 8th 2012.

Fall Favorite: Pumpkin Pancakes

For the next two months our lives will be consumed by pumpkin everything. My personal favorite are pumpkin pancakes and we’ve been making this one recipe for 14 years. It has become a family staple come Autumn in our home and this morning was no exception.

What are your favorite fall foods/recipes?
