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
