Christmas Luminaria trolley tour

On Thursday night my whole family, including my brothers in laws, rented the Great Falls Historic Trolley and took a two hour Christmas Luminaria tour.

 Carol Place aka "The Trolley Lady" drove us all over Great Falls to see some of the best Christmas light displays and led us in singing some Christmas carols. We all had so much fun that we've discussed making this a yearly tradition!

 Here is my Mom and Dad sitting next to my brother Mikey, his wife Jenn and Jenn's sister Abbie.

 Stan "The Man", my cousin Emma, my brother Kurtis and his girlfriend Beth.

To find out more about the Great Falls Trolley and all the different tours they do go here.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas spent with those you love, but most of all remembering why we celebrate in the first place! 

Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.... And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus." Luke 1:26-27, 30-31
 "And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to the...m, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger... When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. ” Luke 2:8-12,16-20

Merry Christmas!!!!
