Last night we took our two granddaughters to a Nativity play where all the children dress up and take part, with actors doing the speaking bits. It was nothing short of magical. To see the children's faces, so intense as they listened to the story. Lucie was Mary (and got to ride the donkey!) and Charlotte was the Angel Gabriel.
Mary with Joseph
All the children
At the end of the play the children were allowed to ride on the donkey and cuddle the lambs.
Granddad, Charlotte and Lucie
At this point, the lambs were getting a bit fed up and by the time it was Charlottes turn, he just wouldn't keep still, so Granddad had to help restrain him, you can see the lamb here licking Charlotte, which she thought was hilarious.
And guess who arrived at the end..................
