Bearing Gifts of… Wait, What?

We had the kids re-tell the Christmas story tonight before bed. The version they gave us was somewhat mangled…

We were informed that “Maryann” heard she was going to have a baby. She was engaged to marry “Joe.”

Not Joseph.

Just Joe.

“Just call me Joe.” (Name that movie.)

Later, the wisemen brought the baby Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, a copper pail (???), and Murff. And ruined my ability to call it “myrrh” ever again, amen.


And with that, the Vitafam wishes you all a very Merry Christmas.

Glory to Him who sent Christmas once and has promised to send Christmas again. Looking forward to that day…



  1. Merry Christmas to you too! That story was really….interesting:) LOL.

  2. Anita Veyera says:

    Meet Joe Black?
    (((((Murrrrrrf))))) that one is going in the fun file

  3. Anita Veyera says:

    And your precious boy in yellow looks like he was cloned from your DH. (But I know you’ve never heard that before!) Our oldest looks so much like my DH, we’re still trying to figure out who the mother was 😉

  4. You’ve Got Mail!!!! An entire generation of cocktail waitresses…

    Loved the re telling.

  5. You’ve Got Mail, right? it is one of the go-to for movie quotes here.

    Loved the re telling.

  6. My daughters version was as follows…

    Mary and Joseph found out they were going to have a baby. They checked into the Embassy Suites Hotel to have the Baby Jesus. Then they flew to Mexico and next, New Orleans.

    Not sure who she has been talking to…lol!
