Happy Birthday Jesus

It is so easy to get caught up in all the stress of the holidays. It seems like this is the most stressful time of the year. Sometimes we just need to stop and remember that we celebrate this holiday because of Christ. It seems trivial, I know. And we all know why we have Christmas, but sometimes we get so caught up in everything else the season brings that we don't literally stop and praise God for sending his son to us.

Tonight we had a birthday party for Jesus. I want to start this tradition every year with Nathan to help him remember the REAL REASON for the season. Reese came over and celebrated our Savior's birth with us. We had a great time.
Here is a picture of the candles....I thought they were so cute!

Now, the cookie cake!

A few decorations.......

Then Reese came over

Getting ready to sing "happy birthday Jesus"

Singing loud!

Blowing out the candles

Nathan really enjoyed the cookie!

So did Reese.....

They had a great time!

Nathan was trying to figure out how to get his noise maker to work.
What a great way to spend the night before Christmas Eve!

Luke 2:6- 15
"While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ[a] the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger. Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about." "
