Happy Birthday Jesus!

Each year since our children were very small, we have decorated a birthday cake for Jesus and we sing "Happy Birthday" to Him on Christmas Day.   My children and their cousins love to sprinkle (dump) lots of sprinkles and multi-colored sugar crystals on the cake.  Then we place a small plastic manger with baby Jesus in it in the middle of the cake.  Here is a picture of our oldest Cupcake decorating a cake when she was 2 1/2 years old:

 Here are pictures of my Cupcakes and cousins decorating away last year:
Merry CHRISTmas and Happy New Year!

Hi Anna-Marie,
No school this week for us either! :) But, I do need to plan for next week's schooling because with a wedding this weekend, there will be no time to plan. Hope you are having a restful time as you reorganize! Reorganizing, a never ending adventure! :) Thanks for the vote, voted for you too! :)

Hi Alida!
Thanks for your visit and comment and follow! My kids love to decorate Jesus' cake and eat it too! It's a fun and easy way to emphasize the reason for the season, don't you think? I'll be visiting your blog soon! :)

I voted for you today. A wedding on New Year's how fun is that. To start the year off as man and wife how wonderful and romantic. I hope you have a good time with not to much stress. God bless.
