a danish nativity play

this autumn, sabin chose to go to something called "mini-konfirmand" at the church next to her school. she had so much fun doing that every wednesday afternoon that she signed up to be part of the nativity play that they were going to put on at the church. last thursday afternoon, there was a matinee of the play at the church. then, today, sunday, they performed again during regular church services. here are some scenes from both...the pictures aren't my best work, as i didn't want to use flash - both because i was so far away it wouldn't make a difference and well, i hate flash.

the church as we approached on thursday at 4 p.m.
it was so beautiful with all of the lights.
and you have to bear in mind that the sun had been set for half an hour by then.

a view inside the church.

sabin played a "julehjerte" - a christmas heart.
it's a nativity that tries to explain the meaning of christmas
for a contemporary audience.

it was difficult to capture everyone standing still.

the whole group.

a little glazed over from the photo session at the end.

a quick shot captured by karoline during the play.

and a couple of gratituous horse shots
from the last weekend of riding lessons 'til january.
it was COLD!

sabin's new warm riding jacket and riding pants came in handy.
they're her main christmas present, but she got to open them early.
it was THAT cold.

she loves zidan at the moment.
she really clicks with him.

his fuzzy ears make him look like a teddy bear.
