Happy Birthday Jesus


Last Wednesday night we had a Happy Birthday Jesus with some family.


Our kitchen tree was decorated to celebrate Jesus birthday, the real reason for CHRISTmas!

And what birthday is complete without a cake? So, we had cake after we sang to Jesus.


Before cake we ate Elizabeth's baked spaghetti, along with salad, and cheese bread...yum!

There was hot chocolate, hot tea, and warm cider.

Lots of smiling faces, and fun conversations.

Rebekah read scripture and a children's Christmas story.

Then came crafts .......


The building of the Happy Birthday Jesus puzzle....


Little hands coloring....


Much thought about his picture....


One finished picture, by William.


Next Amanda set up the table for painting ornaments...


So many colors, ways to design them.....


My Nonnie painting her ornament, at 90 still acts like a kid....hope I do the same


This wasn't just an evening filled with food, crafts, and fun......


It was a celebration of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, the greatest gift of ALL!!!!


For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:11
