Happy Birthday Jesus!!

Cupcakes for celebrating! The little boys took turns blowing out the candles.

Elijah really enjoyed the cupcakes!

Timothy's favorite part is the icing! :)

Even Big brother likes cupcakes!

Joanna's first cupcake! She had to have a bite too!!

Sunday afternoon after church we ate lunch and then had cupcakes to celebrate Jesus' birthday!! This has been something we have tried to do every year. This year we all wrote down what we would like to give Jesus and then put them in a box. Next Christmas we will open the box and read what we said we wanted to give and discuss if we have been giving that to Jesus. Our gifts to Jesus consisted of things like the first hour of our day, to having self control. My prayer is that as we do this each year it will be one more reminder of the real reason we celebrate Christmas. Sometimes in all the gift exchanging and hoopla of the holidays we forget that its not about us it is ALL about HIM!! God gave us the greatest gift EVER when He sent His Son Jesus to redeem us of our sin.
