Happy Birthday Jesus




Every year we have the Christmas story, have a birthday cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. This year Maggie ask the kids to write down one blessing on a sheet of paper that they wanted to thank Jesus for. After they had written their blessing they went outside and read them and put them in the fire so their thank you's could be carried to heaven in the smoke from the ashes.

We once had a birthday cake for Jesus when the kids were small. It made Christmas appropriate, somehow.
