For the first time this year, we celebrated Christmas with a birthday cake for Jesus. Church has become a more central part of our lives, and Ian is at the age where he is understanding what he is being taught at his preschool and Sunday school, so we thought that we'd start this family tradition. It's just nice to acknowledge more fully the central part of Christ's birth on this day.
Except that we aren't very good at it yet. Bryan picked out this cake (Ian wanted an ice cream cake for Jesus) and didn't realize that he bought the "Sinfully Chocolate" Carvel cake. Geez. It's almost worse than serving Devils' Food Cake...
Also, the birthday candles are hidden somewhere, and the only thing I could find to light was Ian's number candle from his birthday this year. So, Jesus is 3 today, according to our cake.
:) I think God has a sense of humor, though, right? If not, then we are all doomed.
Merry Christmas to all. More photos to come later...we had a really, really nice holiday. Hope you did, too.
