HaPpY BiRtHDaY Dr. SeUss

Yesterday was Dr. Seuss day!  Originally I had decided to let this one slide this year.  We had a big family event on Sunday and this week and the next are a bit busy and I am still struggling to keep up with everything.

That being said I quickly realized this week that it was important to the munchkins.  All week I kept hearing them talk about Dr. Seuss day and what we may or may not do this year.

It was a toned back affair but we still celebrated and kept the tradition alive.  The menu this year featured Star Bellied Sneech biscuits, JELL-O jiggler cat in the hat parfait, and green eggs and ham (the easy style simply scrambled).   It was a great evening with everyone in the kitchen helping cook.

We ended the evening as we always do reading a few Dr. Seuss books before bed.

Today I also happened upon a devotional given by Elder L. Tom Perry that drove the point home for me that some of these “silly” things I have started with my kids are important.  Here is a quote from that talk.

Be certain you are creating a rich environment in which your family
can look forward to special times of the year when traditions hold you together as a great eternal family unit.”

Just a little reminder to me that traditions don’t have to be big or drawn out or expensive but a celebration of time spent together.

If you want to read more about this talk you can find it HERE or HERE is another one by Elder Ballard.
