Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today we're having a St. Patrick's Day dinner. I got a beef brisket with a seasoning packet to make corned beef, and we'll be making Colcannon, greens and having Kiss My Blarney Stone cookies.

This morning a leprechaun came and visited our house, leaving a trail of rainbow clues leading to a "pot of gold." Shelli helped us start this tradition last year, and Isaiah began talking about it and pretending to do it since we put up the St. Patrick's Day decorations, so we couldn't not do it again this year.

When I was growing up, there was a couple in our ward that was half-Irish. St. Patrick's Day was a big deal for them, and one year they did a mutual activity for us, explaining the origins of the holiday, and how shamrocks are not four-leaf clovers. I think we'll have a family home evening tonight about the Godhead using a shamrock . . .

Are you wearing green?
