Christmas Symbols with Honey

Do you know the true meaning of Christmas?!! This year Honey sent out cute little invitations to every grandkid.  They were super cute. Everyone was there except our little Dunkie Doodle and Jack of course. 
 She sat the kids down and proceeded to tell them all about the symbols of Christmas.  The BELL.
 After she was finished, she brought them upstairs for a little Christmas Symbol lunch.  A kids dream, complete with taquitos and cream soda. 
 Then they decorated Gingerbread cookies.   "NOT THE GUM DROP BUTTONS....!"
 Cobe was getting Jaden started.
 Then the real decorating fun began...
 And I think he got the hang of it pretty quick...
 Lu Lu couldn't wait to eat the candy.
Livvy was loving the frosting.
 Look at my little decorator....he's quite the PRO!!
Of eating the frosting or decorating...I'm not quite sure which!!

I thought Honey was so cute and sweet to put together this GREAT little Christmas Symbol party for the kids.  They had a ball.  I was surprised to see just how much the kids actually did know.  I know I learned a few things.

Here's a little breakdown of the Symbols of Christmas: 
  • The Star: A heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled long, long ago- The shining hope of mankind.
  • The Color Red: The first color of Christmas, symbolizing that Savior's sacrifice for all.
  • The Fir Tree: Evergreen- the second color of Christmas shows everlasting light and life. The needles point up to heaven.
  • The Bell: Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold, signifying that all are precious in His eyes.
  • The Candle: A mirror of starlight, reflecting our thanks for the star of Bethlehem.
  • The Gift Bow: Tied as we should all be tied together in bonds of goodwill forever.
  • The Candy Cane: Represents the shape of the shepherd's crook, used to bring lost lambs back to the fold.
  • The Wreath: A symbol of the never ending eternal value of love… having no end.
