Scot and Irish but not Scot-Irish

Over the weekend the Church had its annual Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner, I cant for the life of me figure out why. To add insult to injury the next day at church the entire sanctuary smells like the sulfur released from the cabbage, uggh. Just for the record the dinner Sold Out.

The kids picked up some decorations and proudly displayed their Irish heritage. The Norvells were Scots who came over in 1603. My mother's people the McAlisters were Irish but I dont too much about them. So we are a Scot and Irish family but not Scot-Irish like most people in Appalachia, that tradition of people were Scots who migrated to Ireland then left for America in the 1800s.

Here are the kids in all their Irish splendor:
