Happy birthday, Jesus!






We had a birthday party for Jesus when we got home from church on Christmas Eve, which the kiddos really enjoyed. I felt like Grayson was focusing too much on Santa and presents so we decided to start a yearly tradition of having a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas Eve and talking about the real meaning of Christmas. It was a hit, and I look forward to celebrating this tradition for years to come with our growing brood of babies! :)

We also have a birthday party for Jesus. I think it really helps the kids to understand what the day means. I am going to post pictures when we get back from my in-laws on Monday.

That is a great idea! The cake looks pretty yummy, too!
