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.
