  • Bill Gaither: Life is made up of moments...
  • 00:00:06.090 --> 00:00:09.210
  • ... like turning the pages of a photograph album.
  • 00:00:09.220 --> 00:00:12.120
  • Our memories preserve for us the relationships...
  • 00:00:12.130 --> 00:00:15.010
  • ... and events that tell the stories of each of our lives.
  • 00:00:15.020 --> 00:00:19.280
  • Happy, sad, joyful, and painful.
  • 00:00:19.290 --> 00:00:23.130
  • The memories of our days make up the fabric...
  • 00:00:23.140 --> 00:00:26.140
  • ... of who we are.
  • 00:00:26.150 --> 00:00:28.110
  • (Choir Singing) Precious Memories
  • 00:00:28.120 --> 00:00:35.080
  • How they linger
  • 00:00:35.090 --> 00:00:42.270
  • How they ever flood my soul
  • 00:00:42.280 --> 00:00:56.030
  • Bill Gaither: An unforgettable memory was made when dozens of friends...
  • 00:00:56.040 --> 00:00:59.160
  • ... who had spent their lives in gospel music...
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:01.240
  • ... gathered to sings some songs from their own...
  • 00:01:01.250 --> 00:01:04.080
  • ... personal treasure of memories.
  • 00:01:04.090 --> 00:01:07.030
  • For these folks, many precious memories...
  • 00:01:07.040 --> 00:01:10.030
  • ... had begun around a piano somewhere.
  • 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:12.010
  • They're sharing songs about how their lives have been changed...
  • 00:01:12.020 --> 00:01:16.030
  • ... by God's amazing grace.
  • 00:01:16.040 --> 00:01:18.040
  • Precious scenes unfold
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:21.060
  • both: Joy to the world.
  • 00:01:24.100 --> 00:01:25.140
  • Josh: Hey, everyone, I'm Josh.
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:26.190
  • Aaron: And I'm Aaron.
  • 00:01:26.200 --> 00:01:27.250
  • both: And we're the Singing Contractors.
  • 00:01:27.260 --> 00:01:29.190
  • Later on, we'll conspire.
  • 00:01:29.200 --> 00:01:32.280
  • Josh: We're thrilled to bring you this Christmas special
  • 00:01:32.290 --> 00:01:35.040
  • featuring some of our favorite Christmas songs
  • 00:01:35.050 --> 00:01:37.140
  • and hopefully yours too.
  • 00:01:37.150 --> 00:01:38.250
  • both: Go tell it on the mountain.
  • 00:01:38.260 --> 00:01:42.090
  • Aaron: Christmastime is one of
  • 00:01:42.100 --> 00:01:43.190
  • our favorite times of the year,
  • 00:01:43.200 --> 00:01:45.090
  • and we can't think of a better way to celebrate
  • 00:01:45.100 --> 00:01:48.070
  • than to sing about the birth of Jesus.
  • 00:01:48.080 --> 00:01:51.090
  • both: All is calm.
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:54.290
  • Josh: But as you know, we're also builders.
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:57.140
  • So we decided to throw in a few do-it-yourself projects
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:02:00.060
  • for you and your family.
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:02.060
  • - If you have any men out there that have beards,
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:04.160
  • you're bound to get some sawdust in your beard.
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:06.090
  • Leave it in there for later. I mean, it's a decoration.
  • 00:02:06.100 --> 00:02:08.090
  • - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:09.170
  • So sit back and relax
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:10.290

  • 00:02:11.000 --> 00:02:12.290
  • both: Build a Christmas to Remember.
  • 00:02:13.000 --> 00:02:15.110
  • 00:02:15.120 --> 00:02:16.210
  • Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
  • 00:02:16.220 --> 00:02:20.010
  • In the lane, snow is glistening.
  • 00:02:20.020 --> 00:02:23.190
  • A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight
  • 00:02:23.200 --> 00:02:27.040
  • walking in a winter wonderland.
  • 00:02:27.050 --> 00:02:29.200
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:32.120
  • Gone away is the bluebird.
  • 00:02:32.130 --> 00:02:35.110
  • Here to stay is the new bird.
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:38.290
  • He sings a love song as we go along
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:42.140
  • walking in a winter wonderland.
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:46.040
  • In the meadow we can build a snowman,
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:49.190
  • and pretend that he is Parson Brown.
  • 00:02:49.200 --> 00:02:52.220
  • He'll say, "Are you married?" We'll say, "No, man.
  • 00:02:52.230 --> 00:02:56.020
  • But you can do the job when you're in town."
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:59.080
  • Later on, we'll conspire
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:02.210
  • as we dream by the fire
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:06.110
  • to face unafraid the plans that we've made,
  • 00:03:06.120 --> 00:03:10.010
  • walking in a winter wonderland.
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:13.050
  • [upbeat guitar and piano music]
  • 00:03:13.060 --> 00:03:15.280
  • 00:03:15.290 --> 00:03:23.000
  • In the meadow we can build a snowman,
  • 00:03:27.100 --> 00:03:30.240
  • and pretend that he is Parson Brown.
  • 00:03:30.250 --> 00:03:34.030
  • He'll say, "Are you married?" We'll say, "No, man.
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:37.070
  • But you can do the job when you're in town."
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:40.130
  • Later on, we'll conspire
  • 00:03:40.140 --> 00:03:43.240
  • as we dream by the fire
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:47.140
  • to face unafraid the plans that we've made,
  • 00:03:47.150 --> 00:03:51.110
  • walking in a winter wonderland.
  • 00:03:51.120 --> 00:03:55.250
  • To face unafraid the plans that we've made,
  • 00:03:55.260 --> 00:03:59.190
  • walking
  • 00:03:59.200 --> 00:04:01.150
  • in a winter wonderland.
  • 00:04:01.160 --> 00:04:07.110
  • Josh: Yeah!
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:08.160
  • - Yeah!
  • 00:04:08.170 --> 00:04:10.230
  • Yeah!
  • 00:04:10.240 --> 00:04:12.170
  • Whoo!
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:14.140
  • 00:04:14.150 --> 00:04:21.260
  • [applause]
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:25.190
  • Aaron: The reason we're so excited
  • 00:04:25.200 --> 00:04:26.240
  • about this Christmas album:
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:28.040
  • We're singing to a style that we love,
  • 00:04:28.050 --> 00:04:31.070
  • kind of taking the old classics
  • 00:04:31.080 --> 00:04:33.080
  • and bringing them to a different light.
  • 00:04:33.090 --> 00:04:35.190
  • And I hope the older people love it.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:38.110
  • I hope the younger people love it.
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:40.100
  • I think there's something on this album for everybody.
  • 00:04:40.110 --> 00:04:43.090
  • - They can identify with hearing
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:45.090
  • these Christmas songs all these years.
  • 00:04:45.100 --> 00:04:47.040
  • They've heard 'em sung so many different ways,
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:49.090
  • but they can identify at that moment at Christmas
  • 00:04:49.100 --> 00:04:51.290
  • where they were with their families,
  • 00:04:52.000 --> 00:04:53.140
  • like a song did for us.
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:55.090
  • That's one of my hopes.
  • 00:04:55.100 --> 00:04:56.190
  • [smooth funky music]
  • 00:04:56.200 --> 00:05:00.110
  • both: God rest ye, merry gentlemen.
  • 00:05:00.120 --> 00:05:03.030
  • Let nothing you dismay.
  • 00:05:03.040 --> 00:05:05.230
  • Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day
  • 00:05:05.240 --> 00:05:11.010
  • to save us all from Satan's pow'r
  • 00:05:11.020 --> 00:05:13.260
  • when we were gone astray.
  • 00:05:13.270 --> 00:05:16.010
  • O tidings of comfort and joy,
  • 00:05:16.020 --> 00:05:20.030

  • 00:05:21.170 --> 00:05:26.250
  • 00:05:26.260 --> 00:05:29.250
  • From God our heavenly Father, a blessed angel came,
  • 00:05:29.260 --> 00:05:35.090
  • and unto certain shepherds brought tidings of the same:
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:40.210
  • how that in Bethlehem was born the son of God by name,
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:45.210
  • O tidings of comfort and joy,
  • 00:05:45.220 --> 00:05:49.240
  • comfort and joy.
  • 00:05:49.250 --> 00:05:51.060

  • 00:06:29.100 --> 00:06:32.010

  • [bells jingling, saws buzzing]
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:18.160
  • - Hey, guys. This project is supercool.
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:21.220
  • - Oh, it's cool as all get-out.
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:23.120
  • - This is what we're gonna be making right here.
  • 00:08:23.130 --> 00:08:25.010
  • - Well, tell us about it.
  • 00:08:25.020 --> 00:08:26.050
  • - This is a table centerpiece.
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:27.090
  • - Okay.
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:28.090
  • - It is made out of tree log.
  • 00:08:28.100 --> 00:08:30.160
  • - Oh, my Lord.
  • 00:08:30.170 --> 00:08:31.160
  • - With a little bit of glitter.
  • 00:08:31.170 --> 00:08:33.000
  • - I can almost guarantee you,
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:35.160
  • if you make one of these for your mother-in-law,
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:37.260
  • you're gonna get an extra piece of pie
  • 00:08:37.270 --> 00:08:39.260
  • at Christmas or Thanksgiving--
  • 00:08:39.270 --> 00:08:41.160
  • - What kind? - Oh, it don't matter.
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:43.160
  • - Man. - Pie's pie.
  • 00:08:43.170 --> 00:08:44.200
  • - Does she still talk to you? - No.
  • 00:08:44.210 --> 00:08:45.270
  • - That's what I thought.
  • 00:08:45.280 --> 00:08:47.070
  • But we're gonna--we're actually gonna make this,
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.260
  • and then you can decorate it for Christmastime
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:51.110
  • or you can actually decorate it for Thanksgiving.
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:53.260
  • Where would a person go get a log like this?
  • 00:08:53.270 --> 00:08:57.060
  • - Well, I can tell you is,
  • 00:08:57.070 --> 00:09:00.030
  • wives or men,
  • 00:09:00.040 --> 00:09:01.080
  • you can just go grab your chain saw,
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:02.280
  • 'cause everybody has one of these.
  • 00:09:02.290 --> 00:09:04.120
  • And it don't matter if it's--
  • 00:09:04.130 --> 00:09:06.030
  • if it's your wife's fruit tree that she loves.
  • 00:09:06.040 --> 00:09:08.130
  • Just cut a limb off and make it for her...
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:10.120
  • - That's right. - And she'll be very happy.
  • 00:09:10.130 --> 00:09:11.180
  • - It don't matter if it's live or--
  • 00:09:11.190 --> 00:09:12.200
  • - Oh, no. - Anything.
  • 00:09:12.210 --> 00:09:13.280
  • Everybody has a tape measure, I'm assuming.
  • 00:09:13.290 --> 00:09:15.080
  • - And you can literally measure it or eyeball it.
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:18.130
  • It really don't matter.
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.180
  • I like eyeballing things,
  • 00:09:19.190 --> 00:09:21.060
  • because, quite frankly,
  • 00:09:21.070 --> 00:09:22.260
  • you get things just a little more precise.
  • 00:09:22.270 --> 00:09:25.170
  • - And we don't know how to read a tape that well.
  • 00:09:25.180 --> 00:09:26.170
  • - Yeah. - So--
  • 00:09:26.180 --> 00:09:27.170
  • - And most people don't.
  • 00:09:27.180 --> 00:09:28.230
  • - You want to make, uh,
  • 00:09:28.240 --> 00:09:30.060
  • five spots on this one?
  • 00:09:30.070 --> 00:09:31.210
  • - It don't matter to me.
  • 00:09:31.220 --> 00:09:33.010
  • Just mark 'em.
  • 00:09:33.020 --> 00:09:34.110
  • I'm kind of enjoying just sitting here watching you.
  • 00:09:34.120 --> 00:09:36.180
  • - What size bit are we gonna be looking for?
  • 00:09:36.190 --> 00:09:38.140
  • - Well, I looked at it earlier, and I guessed at 1 1/2 inches.
  • 00:09:38.150 --> 00:09:42.060
  • And so-- - So it was an eyeball trick.
  • 00:09:42.070 --> 00:09:44.040
  • - It was an eyeball situation.
  • 00:09:44.050 --> 00:09:46.090
  • So let's--let's-- let's show 'em a little trick.
  • 00:09:46.100 --> 00:09:48.140
  • - Okay.
  • 00:09:48.150 --> 00:09:49.160
  • - And you put a piece of tape--
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:51.060
  • How thick is that?
  • 00:09:51.070 --> 00:09:52.150
  • - Approximately-- - Looks like 1/2 inch.
  • 00:09:52.160 --> 00:09:54.030
  • - Yeah, it's 1/2 inch. - Okay.
  • 00:09:54.040 --> 00:09:55.070
  • Give me a piece of that tape over there.
  • 00:09:55.080 --> 00:09:56.240
  • Put that on there. - So let's place it here.
  • 00:09:56.250 --> 00:09:58.110
  • - So as you can see, you just put your little line there
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:10:00.260
  • even though it's crooked
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:02.140
  • and everything.
  • 00:10:02.150 --> 00:10:03.160
  • And my bit just fell out.
  • 00:10:03.170 --> 00:10:05.010
  • [drill whirs, both laugh]
  • 00:10:05.020 --> 00:10:06.010
  • But, uh, anyways,
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:07.170
  • you got it right there ready,
  • 00:10:07.180 --> 00:10:09.010
  • and you drill down to that depth, and it's just perfect.
  • 00:10:09.020 --> 00:10:13.060
  • - And these are gonna fit nice and flush all the way across.
  • 00:10:13.070 --> 00:10:15.220
  • - Oh, they're gonna be beautiful.
  • 00:10:15.230 --> 00:10:16.230
  • So I tell you what.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:17.280
  • I'm gonna go ahead and start drilling.
  • 00:10:17.290 --> 00:10:19.010
  • But first things first. - Okay.
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:20.070
  • - Get your safety glasses on.
  • 00:10:20.080 --> 00:10:21.100
  • - We have to wear safety glasses.
  • 00:10:21.110 --> 00:10:22.210
  • - And when you're drilling with these paddle bits,
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:24.170
  • you want to go into it easy.
  • 00:10:24.180 --> 00:10:26.040
  • You don't want to just ram it in there.
  • 00:10:26.050 --> 00:10:27.250
  • It's gonna lock up.
  • 00:10:27.260 --> 00:10:28.280
  • [drill whirring]
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:32.000
  • Almost.
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:35.250
  • Almost right there. - All right, let's--let's--
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:37.220
  • - Fit that in there and see what that does.
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:39.090
  • - Let's test this out here.
  • 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:40.250
  • Look at that.
  • 00:10:40.260 --> 00:10:42.090
  • [drill whirring]
  • 00:10:42.100 --> 00:10:45.270
  • - Mm, I love the smell of that sawdust.
  • 00:10:45.280 --> 00:10:47.170
  • - I do too.
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:48.170
  • - Let's blow together.
  • 00:10:48.180 --> 00:10:49.170
  • [both exhale forcefully]
  • 00:10:49.180 --> 00:10:50.170
  • [laughs]
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:52.070
  • The other thing too is,
  • 00:10:52.080 --> 00:10:53.150
  • if you have any men out there that have beards,
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:55.120
  • you're bound to get some sawdust in your beard.
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:57.090
  • Leave it in there for later.
  • 00:10:57.100 --> 00:10:58.140
  • I mean, it's a decoration. - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:10:58.150 --> 00:10:59.240
  • It gets in the ladies' beards too.
  • 00:10:59.250 --> 00:11:01.180
  • - [laughs] Yeah, there's some of those out there too.
  • 00:11:01.190 --> 00:11:03.060
  • All right.
  • 00:11:03.070 --> 00:11:04.150
  • [drill whirring]
  • 00:11:04.160 --> 00:11:07.210
  • So one thing I would recommend is,
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:09.160
  • if you're doing this by yourself,
  • 00:11:09.170 --> 00:11:11.010
  • maybe have a clamp or a ratchet strap
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:13.210
  • or a bungee cord or some--
  • 00:11:13.220 --> 00:11:15.010
  • - Or somebody like me.
  • 00:11:15.020 --> 00:11:16.010
  • - Or somebody as strong as him
  • 00:11:16.020 --> 00:11:17.240
  • to hold this down. - To hold down on this.
  • 00:11:17.250 --> 00:11:19.100
  • - So they all fit good.
  • 00:11:19.110 --> 00:11:20.240
  • - Now, that's pretty good for eyeballing there, I think.
  • 00:11:20.250 --> 00:11:22.080
  • - But does these need to go down just a little bit further?
  • 00:11:22.090 --> 00:11:24.000
  • - I'm gonna pull 'em back out 'cause we--
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:25.080
  • - And then we're gonna start our next step.
  • 00:11:25.090 --> 00:11:27.040
  • Now that we've got all the holes drilled,
  • 00:11:27.050 --> 00:11:29.140
  • it's time to make this thing look pretty.
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:31.090
  • You want to take a trash bag or a--
  • 00:11:31.100 --> 00:11:33.150
  • even some of your mother-in-law's laundry
  • 00:11:33.160 --> 00:11:35.240
  • and just lay it right on your kitchen countertop.
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:38.040
  • - 'Cause you don't want to make a mess.
  • 00:11:38.050 --> 00:11:39.050
  • - To protect your countertop.
  • 00:11:39.060 --> 00:11:40.190
  • - So we're gonna-- we're gonna apply
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:42.090
  • some nice glue onto here.
  • 00:11:42.100 --> 00:11:44.120
  • But what-- what are we gonna be using
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:45.150
  • just to get the glitter to stick?
  • 00:11:45.160 --> 00:11:46.150
  • - Mod Podge.
  • 00:11:46.160 --> 00:11:47.220
  • - This is something you could probably get
  • 00:11:47.230 --> 00:11:49.040
  • at your-- any local hardware store.
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.240
  • You could also probably pick it up at a craft store.
  • 00:11:50.250 --> 00:11:53.140
  • One thing I like about using things like this is,
  • 00:11:53.150 --> 00:11:55.290
  • it's pretty easy to dispose of it
  • 00:11:56.000 --> 00:11:57.240
  • without having to wash it out.
  • 00:11:57.250 --> 00:11:58.240
  • - That's true.
  • 00:11:58.250 --> 00:12:00.040
  • 'Cause if you use your mother-in-law's plate,
  • 00:12:00.050 --> 00:12:01.160
  • you're gonna have to throw it away.
  • 00:12:01.170 --> 00:12:02.190
  • - It's gonna stick to something.
  • 00:12:02.200 --> 00:12:03.270
  • - So you mays want to use that. - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:12:03.280 --> 00:12:04.270
  • - Okay.
  • 00:12:04.280 --> 00:12:05.280
  • Involve everybody in your family.
  • 00:12:05.290 --> 00:12:07.160
  • - Everybody. Even your mother-in-law.
  • 00:12:07.170 --> 00:12:09.010
  • - It would be cool to just-- to have 10, 15 people
  • 00:12:09.020 --> 00:12:12.260
  • working on this little project.
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:14.240
  • - You can get glitter pretty much anywhere:
  • 00:12:14.250 --> 00:12:16.110
  • Your local hardware--
  • 00:12:16.120 --> 00:12:17.170
  • - Use your favorite spice or seasoning
  • 00:12:17.180 --> 00:12:19.140
  • that you like to rub on your ribs or something.
  • 00:12:19.150 --> 00:12:21.260
  • It's gonna look just as good. - It would taste good.
  • 00:12:21.270 --> 00:12:23.040
  • - It's gonna look just as good. Looks good.
  • 00:12:23.050 --> 00:12:24.180
  • - You want to rotate this log for me?
  • 00:12:24.190 --> 00:12:25.260
  • - I'll rotate it for you just like a rotisserie.
  • 00:12:25.270 --> 00:12:28.020
  • - That sounds good right now. - Oh, yeah.
  • 00:12:28.030 --> 00:12:29.160
  • - Around the holidays, I love to--
  • 00:12:29.170 --> 00:12:30.190
  • - Mm-hmm. - Turkey and...
  • 00:12:30.200 --> 00:12:32.060
  • - Chicken.
  • 00:12:32.070 --> 00:12:33.060
  • - Mashed potatoes, stuffing.
  • 00:12:33.070 --> 00:12:34.110
  • - Gravy. Mmm!
  • 00:12:34.120 --> 00:12:35.260
  • Sweet potato pie.
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:37.060
  • - Pecan pie.
  • 00:12:37.070 --> 00:12:38.170
  • - Just let her fly.
  • 00:12:38.180 --> 00:12:39.260
  • - It'll only take this a couple hours to dry,
  • 00:12:39.270 --> 00:12:41.120
  • and--and voilà.
  • 00:12:41.130 --> 00:12:42.210
  • - And right now, it looks a little white 'cause--
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.060
  • it's 'cause the glue is not dry.
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:46.060
  • But once that dries,
  • 00:12:46.070 --> 00:12:47.140
  • it's gonna look beautiful just like that one.
  • 00:12:47.150 --> 00:12:49.160
  • It's gonna clear up,
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:50.220
  • and you'll just see the glitter on the bark.
  • 00:12:50.230 --> 00:12:52.210
  • Tilt that this way so I can light these.
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:54.080
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:12:54.090 --> 00:12:55.150
  • - We just want this to really look pretty here.
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:58.010
  • - I can already feel the Christmas spirit.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:12:59.200
  • Hey, that's beautiful, brother.
  • 00:12:59.210 --> 00:13:00.280
  • - It is beautiful.
  • 00:13:00.290 --> 00:13:02.030
  • And I think it's time to get out of here.
  • 00:13:02.040 --> 00:13:04.230
  • But we just want to thank you all for--
  • 00:13:04.240 --> 00:13:06.280
  • for learning from such experienced...
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:09.190
  • - Well, this is a-- - Craft makers.
  • 00:13:09.200 --> 00:13:10.290
  • - This is an easy project that anybody could do.
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:13.050
  • And-- - Anybody can do it.
  • 00:13:13.060 --> 00:13:14.170
  • - It just has the good feeling of home and holidays.
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:16.210
  • Aaron: Hey, it may not turn out perfect,
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.230
  • but it's gonna be pretty,
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:20.030
  • and it's gonna be on your table.
  • 00:13:20.040 --> 00:13:21.280
  • Josh: I'm ready to take it right now.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:23.170
  • - Well, I'm ready to take it to my mother-in-law.
  • 00:13:23.180 --> 00:13:25.060
  • I'm gonna--I'm actually taking it to my mother-in-law.
  • 00:13:25.070 --> 00:13:27.160
  • - But my mother-in-law don't like me.
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:29.010
  • - But-- - I've gotta take it.
  • 00:13:29.020 --> 00:13:30.110
  • - But I'm taking it to my mother-in-law.
  • 00:13:30.120 --> 00:13:31.260
  • - Okay, so why don't you get your chain saw out and half it?
  • 00:13:31.270 --> 00:13:33.260
  • - Oh. Oh, okay.
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:35.010
  • I'll cut it. I'll cut it in half.
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.160
  • [chain saw sputtering] It will start.
  • 00:13:36.170 --> 00:13:38.290
  • [chain saw buzzing]

  • - We felt like making this project was Christmas.
  • 00:18:45.280 --> 00:18:49.270
  • And some people probably know
  • 00:18:49.280 --> 00:18:52.120
  • that we've sang "Mary, Did You Know?"
  • 00:18:52.130 --> 00:18:54.020
  • But we felt it was appropriate
  • 00:18:54.030 --> 00:18:55.120
  • because of the meaning of the song.
  • 00:18:55.130 --> 00:18:57.030
  • And we don't just sing this song
  • 00:18:57.040 --> 00:18:59.020
  • because it has a lot of views.
  • 00:18:59.030 --> 00:19:01.070
  • We sing this song because we like to sing it
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:03.090
  • and we love the words and the meaning behind it.
  • 00:19:03.100 --> 00:19:05.140
  • And it is also a Christmas song.
  • 00:19:05.150 --> 00:19:07.200
  • So when we decided, "Hey,
  • 00:19:07.210 --> 00:19:10.130
  • let's do 'Mary, Did You Know?'"
  • 00:19:10.140 --> 00:19:11.240
  • we also understood that it all started
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:15.040
  • in a garage on a job site and no music.
  • 00:19:15.050 --> 00:19:20.040
  • Just me and you, and we snapped our fingers,
  • 00:19:20.050 --> 00:19:23.010
  • and we didn't even have the lyrics either.
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:24.240
  • We pulled 'em on our phones. - We looked 'em up.
  • 00:19:24.250 --> 00:19:26.240
  • - But we wanted to just scale back on that
  • 00:19:26.250 --> 00:19:30.240
  • and let people know this is where it really started for us.
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:33.220
  • And we love to sing a cappella too.
  • 00:19:33.230 --> 00:19:36.120
  • And so that's why it's on there,
  • 00:19:36.130 --> 00:19:39.150
  • because we want to let people know
  • 00:19:39.160 --> 00:19:40.210
  • that we still enjoy singing a cappella.
  • 00:19:40.220 --> 00:19:43.170
  • And what better song to do it than "Mary, Did You Know?"
  • 00:19:43.180 --> 00:19:47.090
  • Mary, did you know
  • 00:19:48.180 --> 00:19:51.220
  • that your baby boy would one day walk on water?
  • 00:19:51.230 --> 00:19:59.220
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:19:59.230 --> 00:20:03.070
  • that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?
  • 00:20:03.080 --> 00:20:13.050
  • - Did you know
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:15.120
  • that your baby boy has come to make you new?
  • 00:20:15.130 --> 00:20:22.290
  • - This child that you delivered
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:27.100
  • would soon deliver you?
  • 00:20:27.110 --> 00:20:33.100
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:36.100
  • that your baby boy would give sight to a blind man?
  • 00:20:36.110 --> 00:20:44.130
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:20:44.140 --> 00:20:48.000
  • that your baby boy would calm the storms with His hand?
  • 00:20:48.010 --> 00:20:57.200
  • - Did you know
  • 00:20:57.210 --> 00:21:00.070
  • that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
  • 00:21:00.080 --> 00:21:08.220
  • - And when you've kissed your little baby,
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:15.020
  • you've kissed the face of God?
  • 00:21:15.030 --> 00:21:20.220
  • - Mary, did you know?
  • 00:21:20.230 --> 00:21:23.070
  • - Mary, did you know...
  • 00:21:23.080 --> 00:21:26.270
  • both: The blind will see, the deaf will hear,
  • 00:21:26.280 --> 00:21:33.100
  • and the dead will live again;
  • 00:21:33.110 --> 00:21:39.100
  • the lame will leap, the dumb will speak
  • 00:21:39.110 --> 00:21:45.050
  • the praises of
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:48.050
  • the Lamb?
  • 00:21:48.060 --> 00:21:56.070
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:21:57.180 --> 00:22:01.080
  • that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
  • 00:22:01.090 --> 00:22:08.270
  • - Mary, did you know
  • 00:22:08.280 --> 00:22:12.120
  • that your baby boy would one day rule the nations?
  • 00:22:12.130 --> 00:22:20.270
  • - Did you know
  • 00:22:20.280 --> 00:22:23.020
  • that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:32.230
  • and this sleeping child that you're holding...
  • 00:22:32.240 --> 00:22:40.210
  • both: Is the Great
  • 00:22:40.220 --> 00:22:45.200
  • I Am?
  • 00:22:45.210 --> 00:22:56.220
  • [cheers and applause]
  • 00:22:58.060 --> 00:23:01.090
  • - There's so much discomfort in this world.
  • 00:23:05.180 --> 00:23:09.020
  • There's so much hurt and there's pain
  • 00:23:09.030 --> 00:23:11.050
  • and there's sorrow.
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:12.270
  • There's doom and gloom every day on the news.
  • 00:23:12.280 --> 00:23:16.120
  • And so we do need the joy.
  • 00:23:16.130 --> 00:23:18.110
  • We do.
  • 00:23:18.120 --> 00:23:19.110
  • And Jesus is there to give it,
  • 00:23:19.120 --> 00:23:22.070
  • if we'll just let him give it to us, you know.
  • 00:23:22.080 --> 00:23:24.190
  • 00:23:24.200 --> 00:23:27.200
  • both: Joy to the world, the Lord is come.
  • 00:23:27.210 --> 00:23:33.190
  • Let earth receive her King.
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:40.200
  • Let every heart prepare Him room
  • 00:23:40.210 --> 00:23:47.100
  • and heaven and nature sing,
  • 00:23:47.110 --> 00:23:50.200
  • and heaven and nature sing,
  • 00:23:50.210 --> 00:23:54.030
  • and heaven and heaven and nature sing.
  • 00:23:54.040 --> 00:23:59.240
  • 00:23:59.250 --> 00:24:05.290
  • He rules the world with truth and grace
  • 00:24:06.000 --> 00:24:12.070
  • and makes the nations prove
  • 00:24:12.080 --> 00:24:18.270
  • the glories of His righteousness
  • 00:24:18.280 --> 00:24:25.240
  • and wonders of His love,
  • 00:24:25.250 --> 00:24:28.230

  • 00:24:38.160 --> 00:24:43.050
  • - Come on, buddy.

  • both: Joy to the world.
  • 00:24:57.270 --> 00:24:59.280
  • - We're just gonna get down to the nitty-gritty.
  • 00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:02.130
  • [laughs]
  • 00:25:02.140 --> 00:25:04.040
  • Hey, everybody.
  • 00:25:04.050 --> 00:25:06.010
  • - Man, I look like a tank.
  • 00:25:06.020 --> 00:25:07.290
  • Riding sleigh and a sled.
  • 00:25:08.000 --> 00:25:10.230
  • [laughter] And a Frisbee.
  • 00:25:10.240 --> 00:25:12.270
  • [laughter]
  • 00:25:12.280 --> 00:25:13.280
  • - He was afraid of you.
  • 00:25:13.290 --> 00:25:15.180
  • - The desk would have been okay up here.
  • 00:25:15.190 --> 00:25:17.080
  • [laughter]
  • 00:25:17.090 --> 00:25:19.030
  • - With an apron.
  • 00:25:19.040 --> 00:25:20.250
  • Let's blow together. [both exhale forcefully]
  • 00:25:20.260 --> 00:25:22.160

  • 00:25:37.150 --> 00:25:42.110
  • Okay, here we go.
  • 00:25:42.120 --> 00:25:43.110
