We made french toast from scratch this morning, Jacob. Didn’t you get any of those?

We had four of my brother’s children at our house since yesterday, and when I asked them what they liked for breakfast, french toast was definitely their favorite, too.

Mary-Elizabeth made a cake today, and then tried out her skill with her new cake decorating supplies. She has a nice, steady hand, and the cake turned out so pretty that it was eaten within a very short time. I don’t know if anyone even got a picture!

Today was the day to take down our Christmas decorations and trees. As much as I love the way they look, it is always nice to have the house back to normal.

Jacob and his pyramid of 15 French toast sticks. Wizzy did some quick math, and figured out that those total over 1,000 calories.

Paul, Mark, Philip, Jacob, and I are working out at the YMCA. I missed the last two days, plus I don’t usually work out on Sundays, so I wanted to make sure to make the trip today.

As I type, Mom and Dad are taking Seth out for a belated birthday meal. I believe Seth selected a large all-you-can-eat spread about 20 minutes from here.

One thing I really appreciate about Mom and Dad is that they always take the time — or, rather, make the time — to do things with us individually. I never had the feeling that I received less attention just because there were more of us. I remember Dad mentioned in the TLC documentary done on our family that, in a way, it doesn’t feel like a big family to him; rather, it feels like he has 14 “only children,” since each one is such an individual. I think that’s so true!

It’s past midnight, and it’s raining, but apparently it’s 50 degrees outside.
