A Christmas Eve Tradition Reborn!

Christmas is a time of traditions and memories. Some are too special to allow to fade… Every Christmas Eve I would climb on my dads lap along with my siblings and our dad would read us the The Night Before Christmas. It was a wonderful tradition that we continued even until grown adults were crowding onto his lap. When I finally became a father myself one of the things I was eager to do was start my own family traditions. Last Christmas my dad surprised me by giving me the very book he read the story from during my childhood!

My entire K.C. Krew helped write it and did the acting, er, voicing of the characters. The angel, which caused the most controversy (not too bad) was done by the senior pastor’s son, so that helped. But overall the kids did a great job! And since this was made in my pre-Mac days, I need to give credit to Jim Crouter, the youth pastor at my previous church who did all the editing, music and title screens for me. It turned out fantastic! ENJOY! From The ToyBox Tales Christmas DVD. TOMORROW: The 12 Days of Christmas Toybox Tales… WINNER! LAST CHANCE TO BLOG or COMMENT and WIN! BLOG…
