The greatest joy of being a grandparent is having grandchildren!
I know that sounds redundant.
So, I will clarify.
The greatest joy of being a grandparent is enjoying your grandchildren.
And that we do!
The latest enjoyment was watching our youngest, Ava Grace, play Michael in the
North Dallas Performing Arts performance of Elf Jr.
They didn't have ennough little boys to play that role, so guess who was assigned and played the part to perfection.
In case you aren't familiar with the story of Elf, I will just let the pictures tell the story.
On this particular weekend, the play was held in downtown Carrollton, Texas, in an old converted movie theater. A perfect place for a small theater.
This adorable little 11 year old girl made the cutest little boy.

I wish I had a video of the song Micheal and Mom sang. It was so good.
The family trying to decide what to do with an elf member of the family.
Such good dynamics between these two.
Cassidy finished her final finals at the University of Texas Austin in order to make the final performance.
These two young actors made the show so much fun and they loved acting together.
And Michael was glad to wrap up her final performance after a busy, busy two weeks.
Until next time our little actress. Break a leg!
