Luke 2:1-7, (attempted) over and over and over

The kids memorized part of the Christmas story, Luke 2:1-7, this month and I tried to get them to recite it together today.  (Strider is in Virginia with Pete, so he missed out on this experience.)

This is the silliness that ensued:

Luke 2:1-7

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.

(Also, for those of you inquiring about the 7-minute video of Colsen paraphrasing the whole Christmas story, that clip is HERE.)

  1. What a great taste of a day in the life at the Frank family...I love it! That's amazing that they really memorized that whole thing and know it well enough to do a hundred other things while they recite it
