Christmas Story and Excitement at Our House

Today I'm sharing the Christmas Story with you. I grew up reading this every Christmas morning before any packages were opened and tomorrow morning at our house we will do the same.

The Christmas Story

St. Luke 2: 1 – 14

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David)

To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them at the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace,
good will toward men.

Well of course with young children in our home, the excitement is building. I think our five year old Jennifer is more excited than I can remember. All week she has been talking and talking and asking me Mommy do you think I have been good ??? I said Yes I think you have.

So with all the excitement I thought I would share this tag. The kids just love it.


And I love snowman and this is my newest addition I just got it yesterday.


Once again from The Croley Gang we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year !!! Stay safe and remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
