The Pancakes Are Coming!

I know you have been craving pancakes since my post about them.

Don't worry....the day is almost here!

Mark this is bold on your calendars!

November 19th 2011
at Skyline High School
from 8:30 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

Breakfast will be served from 8:30-10:30 a.m.
Live Auction will be from 10:30-11:00 a.m.

Skyline High School's "Honor Society" is sponsoring the event. They will be selling tickets. Tickets will also be available to purchase from family members. Or you can purchase them by emailing us at We can mail them to you or you can pick them up from my parents house or at the door. You will also be able to pay at the door.
Prices have not been set yet.

I will get more details (schools address, prices, stuff like that) to you as they become available! :)

This is going to be fun. We are planning to have some good items to auction off. If all goes as planned there will be a silent auction (smaller items) and a live auction (bigger items). Some of the items include: teeth whitening, message certificate, fresh flower arrangement gift certificate, 2 hour house cleaning certificates...and MORE!) You wont want to miss it. Think "Christmas presents!"

If you are interested in donating an item or service to be auctioned off, please send an email to or call me! (Jennifer) 928-536-7991!

Thanks! :)

And a big huge "thank you" to Bruce Green and his family for their generous donation to my dad's account. "Thank you thank you thank you!"

Do you like pancakes?

We do!
The Barrett's sort of have a "thing" for pancakes. I don't know who started it for sure. But, my Grandma Barrett made the very best pancakes ever. Light+thin+fluffy too. I don't know who taught her...maybe her mom? But her pancakes were super yummy! She was the type of person who didn't have a measuring spoon or measuring cup in her kitchen. She just instinctively knew how to make great food! That made it kindda hard to ask for a recipe!
I remember how my mom got Grandma's pancake recipe. She stood there while grandma was making pancakes one morning and before my grandma dumped an ingredient into the mixing bowl, my mom caught it and measured it...and that is how I am able to make the same yummy pancakes for my kiddos! :)

So...since we all love a good pancake breakfast....we are planning one as a fundraiser for my dad!

The details are still being worked out. So far, the plan is to have the breakfast at Skyline High School sometime in November. Skyline H.S. is going to try to get some of their clubs involved to help out. The High Priest in my dad's High Priest Group are going to help also.

Plus, we plan to have an auction! This will be a great chance for you to donate an item or service OR to buy an item or service { or both...we're okay with that too! :) } We are looking into having some pretty cool stuff. We will give you a sneak peak soon.

So...keep a look out for more information!

"The way to resolve difficulty is always the same-to seek the guidance of the Lord; to live to merit personal inspiration so you will know what the Lord's will is; and then to have the strength and ability to carry it out. When you do those things, you feel stronger and better supported by the Lord, and you can then understand other people's challenges far better. The more you live the commandments of the Lord and understand the principles of the gospel, the more positive you are that the challenges that come can be worked out-and the more effectively you can also act as an instrument in the Lord's hands to help others."

~(Elder Richard G. Scott: Putting God and Family First-Ensign Jan. 1985)
