As a child, I loved spending the night at Aunt Jean and Uncle Ted's house. Uncle Ted (or Teddy Bear as I liked to call him) would usually make us homemade pancakes for breakfast. Anyone who knew Uncle Ted, knew that he was very funny and loved making everyone laugh. His pancakes were never the boring, circular pancakes. His pancakes were always in silly shapes...I couldn't wait to see his creations. :) Now I look forward to laughing with my Uncle Ted one day in heaven. Love you Teddy Bear!
