As Adam, Ryan, and I studied Abraham this morning, we talked about selfishness as a part of human nature. We all vowed to be more like Abraham, and less like Lot. It wasn't even an hour later when Ryan and Evan were arguing over which DVD to watch. I asked Ryan, "Are you going to be like Abraham or like Lot?" It was hard, but Ryan let Evan pick the dvd... and Evan picked one they both could enjoy. The blessings have started already. :)

- Toast bread (in the regular toaster)
- Spread with butter
- Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture
- Ask for more
We keep the cinnamon/sugar mix in a salt shaker so it's ready to go and makes less mess than trying to sprinkle with a spoon. It's about half sugar - half cinnamon but you can mix it to your taste.
When you make cinnamon toast, the aroma of warm bread, melting butter, and sweet cinnamon makes your whole house smell like you're baking a fancy dessert.
