Cut the Merry Christmas image from foam sheet, let the foam rest then glue it to the Merry Christmas image. 
Glue the family to the window and glue the Merry Christmas to the top of the window.  Tie a triple bow with red ribbon and leave tails long.  Glue the bow to the left bottom corner of the window and then curl the ribbon tails below the window and along the left side of the window.  Arrange flowers along the ribbon and add extra holly leaves where needed.

Robin 
Luke 2:7-14
She gave birth to her firstborn son. She wrapped him snugly in strips of cloth and laid him in a manger, because there was no lodging available for them.
That night there were shepherds staying in the fields nearby, guarding their flocks of sheep. Suddenly, an angel of the Lord appeared among them, and the radiance of the Lord’s glory surrounded them. They were terrified, 10 but the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. 11 The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! 12 And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in highest heaven,
    and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
