My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

Happy Birthday Baby Jesus! (Party at our church)

I have been meaning to post this for awhile! :) At the beginning of December I helped put together our 3rd Baby Jesus Birthday party at my church. Moms in our group helped make cupcakes, bring drinks and snacks.  We also decorated with blues and white colors.  Everyone was asked to bring the baby Jesus from their creche for Father to bless!

Getting ready for the party- Baby Jesus birthday party hats!

 Little gift bags and craft activities to take home.

We had a craft activity- got it from Oriental trading online- love that place!! They had nativity pictures with stickers to place on the nativity scene... big stickers easy for little hands!

Everyone brought their baby Jesus from their own home creche... we had our fancy (adult creche) baby Jesus and then the girls brought their Little People baby Jesus as well!

Then the kids sat down and each child got a cupcake with a candle.  We lit the birthday candles and sang Happy Birthday to baby Jesus!

Blowing out the birthday candle at Baby Jesus party!

After we sang to baby jesus we at cupcakes and had drinks and watched a short (10 minute) cartoon on the Nativity story.  Love this little educational video I got! :)

Once the video was over some kids finished up their craft project, and others got ahold of the balloons and ran around with their friends! FUN! :)

Lily is ready to go with her special Baby Jesus gift bag and balloon too! 
What a special morning!
