Happy Birthday, Jesus!

I had an idea to have a birthday party for Jesus. I was thinking we'd do it on Christmas Eve. Just our family of four. You know, start a new tradition.

And any tradition that involves cake is likely to be a good one.

Then I started thinking about how friends come to birthday parties. Even my 3 1/2-year-old girl knows that.

So we had a birthday party last night for Jesus with friends.

Six adults.

Seven kids.

One delicious cake.

One Christmas story.

A new tradition born.

Greg read the Christmas story.

Courtney made a delicious cake.

There was typical party noise.

And there were gifts.
For people we care about.
From the people who love us.
All because Jesus is love.

There are some more pictures here, if you're interested.


  1. fun idea! We make a birthday cake for Jesus every year and leave a piece of it for Santa, but no party..hmmmm, maybe next year.
