Beirut Christmas 2010

The Christmas season has been a busy one for us this year!

I played my flute with the handbell choir at the Christian Community Choir’s annual concert.  I sang in the choir two years ago, but I’m a much better flute player than I am singer, so this was fun!  I just played for the first song and then was able to enjoy the rest of the concert.  It was beautiful!

The next concert of the season was the Kindergarten school program.  One of our girls was even in the little skit… too cute!

Then our Christmas party with the girls.. with a special visit from Joseph and Mary this year!

Christmas Eve we spent with our dear friends, the Costas.  We are so thankful for their love and care for us and for including us in their family celebration each year.

…and then decided to go for a walk around the Souks and look at lights.

I didn’t edit this photo at all – this is how it actually looked!

Apparently the entire city of Beirut had the same idea.  There was actually even a program for kids… complete with dancing mice, elves, and the ever-scary Santa!

It was a wonderful holiday.  Hope that you as well had a very Merry Christmas!
