Happy Birthday Jesus! Party

In honor of the season and what Christmas is all about I hosted a Happy Birthday Jesus! Party for some friends. We're been working hard this year to really hit home about the true meaning of Christmas. Guest list: Erica and her 4, Shaunna and her 3, Kaylie and her 1, and of course my 3. We made candy cane cookies, Shaunna read a book called J is for Jesus by Crystal Bowman, which tells the story behind the candy cane. We let the kids out a bit to burn off energy while the cookies baked. When back inside some of the kids made cards for Jesus. We sung happy birthday and blew out candles, one for each kid. Then made the kids go back outside to burn more energy off. I think it went well and would love to do it again next year. :)
