Happy Birthday Jesus

We had our annual "Happy Birthday Jesus" party on our family's Christmas eve last night. This is year number 3 and we hope to continue until the girls are grown up! It's so much fun and it really reminds Avery what Christmas is about and why we have it to begin with. It's so easy to get lost in all the other stuff. This year we baked cupcakes for the party, yum! Avery picked out everything for the cupcakes and decorated them. She wanted to understand why Jesus wouldn't come to his party. We explained the best we could and then she said, "So he's not coming? That's kinda rude" Leave it to a three year old:) She cracks me up constantly. Despite the fact that Jesus was only here in spirit, we had a great family night celebrating His birth. Sweet memories!

Avery made one to leave for Santa and a few carrots for the reindeer. She also made a picture of baby Jesus' birth to give to Santa. This was her idea and I loved it.
Adalyn enjoyed watching Avery in action like she always does:)

This picture makes me smile
