Lately, we have been teaching my daughter about the calendar and dates for special events. With her little sister’s birthday party a few weeks ago, like any 3 year old, she immediately started talking about her own birthday party (which is in June). We went through the whole list of holidays and family members who have birthdays before hers. This conversation has happened SEVERAL times.
During one of our lists of birthdays we explained Christmas as being “Jesus’ birthday”. Being the adorable little detail oriented, OCD princess that she is…Christmas is now Jesus’ Birthday Party! So of course, being the party mama that I am…we are throwing a birthday party for Jesus. I made some cute little cupcake toppers and wrappers and a birthday banner for Jesus. I figured it was a fun and easy way to focus back on the real meaning of Christmas.
Aubrey insisted that Jesus would want yellow for his birthday decorations.
Why? I’m not sure, but she was pretty insistent.
