A "God" Birthday

If you know my kids, you know they plan their birthdays year round.
We love birthdays, and half-birthdays for that matter, and we love parties.
So it's not strange for my kids to come up with a birthday theme and plan when their birthday is six months away.
Out of the blue the other night, Emma tells me that she wants to have a "God" themed birthday party. She gave me some ideas for making the decorations, but the best one was her idea to play "Pin Jesus on the Cross".
Yes. My daughter said instead of playing pin the tail on the donkey, she thought we could put up a cross, and pin Jesus on it.
Okay, more than slightly irreverent.
But she was totally serious, and I know her heart was not amiss in this, so I did not correct her.
We WON'T be playing "Pin Jesus on the Cross", however.

Thanks for the laugh that I really needed after finally getting the kids to bed with a husband gone on the men's retreat. So cute and so funny.

I laughed so hard I cried and it took me a long time to pull it together enough to tell Marcus! Oh, Emma. She's going to love reading these posts in five or ten years!!

Just as long as He doesn't stay on the cross. :)
