Memories of Christmas 2008

Oh, I can't hardly believe it is December 30 already! Where did the Christmas Season go? Christmas is my most, most, most... Favorite Time of the Year... and so quickly it has slipped away.

What a precious time it was... I cherish the day and time spent with family.

Our tradition is for us all to get ready in the morning, we still wear our jammies, though... have breakfast together, read the Christmas story from the Bible, Luke 2... , then open Christmas presents one by one! It's a wonderful family time. We are so blessed. We took lots of pictures and I cherish them!

I hope you all have precious memories of this Christmas and Christmases that have passed!


--------------------------------------------
Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus

1 In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2 (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3 And everyone went to his own town to register.

4 So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. 5 He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

6 While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, 7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

The Shepherds and the Angels

8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

It's Almost Christmas!

It's almost Christmas!!! I love the Spirit we feel, even more so than ever.. at this time of year. It is indeed the Most Wonderful Time of the Year... where we celebrate the Christ Child's Birth and gather with family, friends, and loved ones!

We give each other "special meaningful gifts" and "silly" and sometimes... "thank goodness its returnable" gifts, too... but the best Gift of all was born in a manger thousands of years ago... "a Savior, which is Christ the Lord!"

If you are looking for the true meaning of this Season and Life, as well... then please click here to read the Christmas Story.

Last night we baked Christmas Sugar-Cookies and watched Christmas Movies on TV. Oh, how I love the smell of nutmeg and a warm cookie and milk.

Merry CHRISTmas and God Bless Us, Everyone!

6 Days til Christmas!!!

6 Days til Christmas... it's almost hard to believe it! It won't be long now before Santa will be coming down all of our chimneys!

I've tried to watch as many of the new Christmas Movies... as possible, however I've had to record some and I'll have to catch up with them after Christmas.

I am so glad we have the Hallmark Channel. By far, I think they have had the very best family Christmas Movies this year.

I'm off to go do some wrapping now.... while White Christmas plays on Lifetime!

God bless & Merry CHRISTmas!!!

Reviews of New Christmas Movies... thus far!

It is now (unbelievably) less than 2 weeks from Christmas and many of us are still buzzing about... like busy little bees - still shopping and hunting for those special gifts, baking Christmas goodies, decorating the house, wrapping gifts, .... hopefully visiting the It's a Wonderful CHRISTmas TV Schedule, and possibly.... maybe finding a few minutes in the evening to cozy up by the fireplace and watch an old favorite or new... Christmas Movie!

There have only been a hand full of premieres, thus far... and there are many more to come as the days get closer to Christmas!

So far, I have watched the following movies listed below. I will rate them from 1 to 5 .... 5 being the best.

NEW MOVIES:

An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving ( 4 of 5 )

Moonlight & Mistletoe ( 4 of 5 )

Merry Christmas, Drake & Josh (1 of 5)

The Christmas Choir (4.5 of 5)

Front of the Class (5 of 5)

Macy's Presents: Little Spirit, Christmas in New York (2.5 of 5)

Christmas Town (2 of 5)


Okay, so the Front of the Class was not technically a Christmas Movie.... but there was a brief mention of Thanksgiving and Christmas! It was such a beautiful inspiring movie of a young boy and man who was determined to become a teacher in spite of having tourette's syndrome. I haven't loved a movie like that in a long time. I loved it!

I'll have more... fuller reviews of these movies on the Movie Reviews page in the coming days.

Have a Blessed Merry CHRISTmas!!!
