Tonight we had the board Christmas party......we didn't have as many as we usually do so it was kind of different this year. We had to cancel last week because of the roads and rescheduled for this week. We did our usual tradition of writing a couple stories. We have everyone go around the room and give a one liner and I write it down and then read them our story. We do a funny one and then a serious one about the reason for the season. Here is our serious one this year:
The angel appeared to Mary and Mary said, "I am the Lord's servant." Proud mother was stricken with joy and happiness. She had a baby in a manger and then there was a bright star in the sky. The shepherds fainted -well it scared the heck out of them. The reason the baby was born in the manger was because there was no room in the inn. Thus fulfilled what the angel had said to Mary when she was stricken with joy and happiness. Remembering the long journey and that there was no room in the inn they found shelter from the weary journey. There were animals...MOO...oink...neigh...neigh (this came from a 2 1/2 year old) a humble place for our humble King of Kings and Lord of Lords to be born. For there were three wisemen that brought gifts. They all came to see him and gave him frankincense, gold and myrrh. The END!
Just thought I would share a fun tradition that we started several years ago at our board Christmas Party's for the ranch.
