baked with love

Every year since Grace was born, we've made a point of trying to do something tangible to remind her why we celebrate Christmas in the first place.

Sure, we talk about Jesus, we pray together, we believe, we go to church, but I think for a little child, having something they can relate to makes a big difference, so............... all that to say, we sing Happy Birthday to baby Jesus and have cake on Christmas Day!
The past 3 years {see here, and here, and here} I've baked the cupcake/cake/brownies and we've just sang happy birthday. This year I wanted to do things a little bit different.I knew the littles were old enough to help and both of them fight all the time to be my helper in the kitchen. So after we opened presents, we baked a funfetti cake for Jesus! Thank you Segi for the baking supplies - we put them to good use right away!!Sprinkes (and glitter!) = the little pumpkin's love language.If a few sprinkles are good, a WHOLE container of sprinkles is much better!There, isn't that pretty?!She has seen me add bunting to just about anything that will stay still, so she was super excited to make this one, "for baby Jesus, mama! He will love it!" Not too happy that she had to share putting in the mini bunting on the cake with her little brother, "But he didn't help make it!!! It's not fair!" Oy!For Hudson, cake = birthdays and birthdays = candles, so as soon as the bunting was in and we started singing "Happy Birthday to you..." he was blowing the (imaginary) candle out!! That's right, we didn't even have a candle on the cake yet!!He kept going and going and going...
{it's a good thing this cake was just for family - HA!}
Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus!Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, goodwill towards men. ~Luke 2:14

Baking was my way of relaxing. I loved the smile and people's faces when they taste my cake or pie, and it gave me a strong push to come up with something better. I don't just bake but I baked with love! Look for the best Charlottesville Tree Service

Roselyn said...

Also apart from baking I also love that cooking, it gives me a chance to be creative and indulge in some 'play' time – something we adults could do with a lot more. I adore losing myself in the rituals of chopping, stirring and tasting. Check out about Washington DC Home Automation Company
