Happy Birthday, Jesus

So it all started with a kids' book about Christmas.

I was reading it to our little preschooler and explaining how Christmas is Jesus' birthday.  You could almost see the wheels turning in his head as he was trying to process and then came the natural question. . .

We eat birthday cake?

Well, yes, that would make sense wouldn't it.

So since it is Christmas Eve, we are going to try to start a new family tradition and make a birthday cake for Jesus.  And if you are at all familiar with this family, that means ICE CREAM CAKE!!!!

We love to find occasions to eat ice cream cake, but that habit can get kind of pricey.  So we make our own.  Here is my tutorial on how to make an easy ice cream cake.  Click here for the do-it-yourself version.

Now if we can just figure out how many candles to put on it?

  1. We used to put on the # candles like 2020 then added a year each Christmas until the boys turned teenagers now no candles just cake. This year going to have apple cinnamon rolls with candles for breakfast and we always sing Happy Birthday Jesus.
