This year attending our churches Christmas Eve service to worship our Lord and acknowledge him was extremely important to me. I want my boys to understand Christmas and have a heart for the real meaning. And at the same time enjoy family and all the festivities it brings. I also wanted to have a Birthday party for Jesus. Shamefully I got wrapped up in trying to prepare my first big holiday meal and gift exchanges that we pushed it off and didn't do it. I have felt funky the last couple of days for not doing this so tonight we did. While Phillip cooked us a yummy dinner the boys and I baked Jesus his cake. After it cooled Beckham and I decorated it. We had to sing Happy Birthday twice because mid song the first go around Beckham blew the candle out and Parker had a mini melt down. So.... we lit the candle again so Parker could have a turn blowing it out. And then we devoured it. My little guys have a sweet heart for Jesus and I want to nurture that and keep it alive.
