Living Nativity

Friday and Saturday nights saw us in Bethlehem! Our church put on its annual living nativity drama and it was AWESOME! Three months of construction had produced a set complete with Herod's palace, the temple, a large marketplace and inn, stable, cross and tomb. The set was filled with about 50 actors, and numerous goats, ducks, peacocks, horses and donkeys. Over 1200 people visited the nativity to hear the story of Jesus.

We were so busy that we didn't take any photos but you can check out previous years here.

Andrew was a shepherd for most of the night but did get to feature as Joseph for a little while, whilst Fiona was a fruit seller in the market place. Although it was REALLY cold, and we were outside for 3 hours, we had plenty of layers of clothes under our costumes. Lucy was well looked after in the nursery and very much enjoyed going through the set to find a real baby Jesus.

So although we didn't have a romantic dinner together, nor fly to Hawaii to renew our vows, nor revisit our honeymoon location we were very happy to have pizza together in the church hall to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary!

Sounds like an awesome way to celebrate 10 years.
