Birthday Party for Jesus

Each year we host a birthday party for Jesus. The kids really love this. I try to start out our Christmas celebration with Jesus and His birth and focus on this. We do have Santa and all of the fun associated with that, but I really try to make Jesus our primary focus. This gets a little harder as Elijah has gotten older, I am sure the time is coming that he will no longer believe in Santa, but the message of Jesus will continue.
We started the night with a few crafts:

Then had supper and did a nativity scavenger hunt:

Where the kids learned "What God wants for Christmas"....their heart:

Then the kids decorated their own gingerbread(graham cracker) house:

Well, most did, Sarah licked the icing off her's:

All in all, we all had FUN!!!
