Neighbor Logan (8) was the youngest member of the cast of Elf, the Musical. This was something he wanted to do, and he was involved in rehearsals for weeks. We went to the first performance. Because we bumbled to the wrong door at the theater, we saw him just before the show began. His parents were behind him, and John and I are reflected in the door.

The show was delightful. My favorite photo, taken during the performance, shows Logan as a child on Santa’s lap at Macy’s. The red cast on his arm blends in nicely with Santa’s red suit.

Logan appeared in street scenes several times, including the final scene. He is the child in a blue coat. It was fun to watch him singing and dancing with that lively crew.

  1. What a darling elf he makes. Thanks for sharing the sweet photos. I’m really in the Christmas spirit this year…I can’t wait for the season to begin and plan on enjoying every moment.


  2. There’s a super-special delight in watching a grandchild on stage. I don’t know why, do you? I think I would have that besotted smile on my face from start to end even if the play was Coriolanus.


    1. LOL! You’ve got grandparenthood nailed! We are honorary grandparents for Logan, who lives across the street from us. He is 10 years younger than our younger grandson. I sat through the whole play with a camera in my hand, hoping to catch a few good shots without making the people behind us angry.
