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 a few years ago:

How fun to make a serious and silly photo! Your children will remember that as they grow up. I think it's extra special too that the kids are decorating Jesus' cake! You do a wonderful job of sharing your faith with your children!

What a wonderful tradition! We do the same thing, here. :-) My 13 year old baked the Lord's birthday cake this year and we put "2011" in candles on top and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus on Christmas. I just put pics of it up on my blog.

I hope you have a New year that is filled with nothing but love and joy!

God bless,
