We decided to make Elvis Pancakes this morning. My 9 year old has been home all week with pneumonia & we wanted to make him something special for breakfast to make him feel better (which he is feeling better at this point). We went to Memphis this past weekend to visit my mom & stopped at Elvis’ birth place in Tupelo. My husband is a huge Elvis fan! He might have loved this breakfast even more than my 9 year old!:) This definitely made my 9 year old cheer up and he thought it was so funny! This might not look exactly like Elvis, but I am sure most kids (and adults) that are Elvis fans would get a kick out of this!
Here is a picture we took of his house..
Here are my boys on the front porch swing of Elvis’ home he grew up in…
We have some ties to Elvis since I grew up in Memphis for some of my childhood. My family went to the same church as Elvis. His high school sweet heart Dixie Emmons was my dad’s secretary for years. She is such a nice lady and we still see her on occasion when we go back to visit my mom….

Our pastor Jim Hamill was a very important person in Elvis’ life. He probably knew Elvis more than most people did. I remember him giving me a stick of gum every Sunday..such a good man!
The Blackwood Brothers were also from our church who were great friends with Elvis.

Terry Blackwood was in the Imperials who did back up vocals for Elvis.
A lot of the people we grew up with knew Elvis well. It’s so neat hearing all of their stories!
Thank you thank you very much!:)
