Live Animal Christmas Play Photos

The 2012 Marion Avenue Live Animal Christmas Play is now history.
It showed five times Dec 7-9th to packed out crowds.
(see above picture! we squeezed so many people in!)
 it seemed that every corner of our church was filled with either people or animals. =) 
Our entire family was involved in the play. Mom served hot chocolate/candy canes to attendees, dad was an usher, Allison & I helped with hair/makeup, and then all of us were actors except for Carson who worked backstage with switching out props and setting scenes. 
See if you can find the Bontrager/Bontragers in each picture. =)

(Rebecca was thrilled to have her kitten Frappe "acting" with her in the market scene)
Many thanks to our church photography, Mrs. Hoffert, for taking all the pictures and letting us post some of them!
