This afternoon our family decorated our annual Christmas Cake. Abbie baked the cake (and did an excellent job) several days ago so today we could create our nativity scene. All the characters (and the star and animals) are made out of icing.
It was quite a team effort, with even the younger ones creating some of the characters. It is really easy to forget that Christmas is not a time for perfection, but a time to have fun together remembering the birth of Jesus Christ, even if that means sacrificing what might have been a much more perfect job!
Have a wonderful few days preparing for Christmas and may the Lord bless you all this week.
"She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” -Matthew 1:21
