It’s Christmas Eve! Merry Christmas from our family to yours. May this holiday season find you with friends and family, making new memories together and sharing love, joy and peace with everyone you meet.
Here are a few holiday videos from the past few years, which may add some cheer to your evening and day tomorrow!
Three years ago, I served as the videographer and editor for a seven minute Christmas program my wife directed with preschoolers at our church in Edmond, Oklahoma. If you’re looking for Rachel, she’s one of the sheep! Sarah (as an elementary student cast addition) was the angel of the Lord.
That same year, I worked with my fifth grade students in Sunday School to create the following seven minute enhanced podcast. I recently published this to YouTube, and for some reason the QuickTime conversion messed up the photo sync and also added silent time at the end. It’s still a powerful message. This was shown as part of the Christmas Eve family service at our church that year.
Last Christmas, both my girls recorded the following 7.5 minute “International Cooking Show” episode explaining how to cook holiday sausage balls. Rachel and I are going to make these again tonight, in fact, after we get back from the Christmas Eve service! If you’re interested in the recipe, it’s available in this post from 2007. That was also the year we made a VoiceThread about cooking sausage balls.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
