We hosted an impromptu "birthday party for Jesus" at the end of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Now, we did this not because we felt we had the time or the energy to host dozens of munchkins and their parents in our little house but because this season into which we are entering is too sacred to not intentionally carve out moments of celebration and community.

When everything around us seeks to draw our hearts away from the hope of advent, we've got to figure out creative ways to tell ourselves and our families the story again, and sometimes the best way to tell that story is with cake! (click to enlarge images)
