Happy Birthday Jesus

This Year was great because the "safari" were really into Christmas. The Jesse Tree was great and the "safari" loved the stories and placing the ornaments on the tree every day. Noel and I bought the other 11 Jesse Tree ornaments and now we have the complete collection. If you do not know what a Jesse Tree is or if you want some more information here is a link

If you are interested in a professional ornament set I recommend this website. Our ornaments will last us the entire life of our Children and hopefully their children as well. Now there are websites out there that will let you download free ornaments but if this is going to be a tradition in your house you might want to make the investment in nice ornaments.

It is great to know that we have some traditions for the Christmas season and it is neat to meet people that have different traditions. I am always looking for great traditions so if you have one please leave a comment. Our traditions are the Jesse Tree when they get a little older we will read the Christmas story on Christmas morning and we are hoping to make Christmas simple. We also went to the Christmas Eve service at our church. They had one service for families with kids and then a traditional service. I did not like the family service and was really disappointed that our church could not leave Santa Clause outside of the church. They did have a neat video that told the difference between the two but in the skit they had Santa Clause on stage.

Christmas morning the "safari" got up and we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus. Here is the video.

It is the only birthday where other people get gifts and the guests get to blow out the candles. We hope that each of you had a Merry Christmas and that your New Year is going well so far.
