In October M came home and told us about the Christmas musical they were doing this year. He told us he was going to try for every part. A couple of weeks later he came home and told us the exciting news... he was cast as the leading part! The school would be performing "Melton the Warm Hearted Snowman," and M was cast as Melton! He had many lines to memorize and I think we were all a little nervous.
The high school auditorium is a very busy venue in December. The play was held on Thursday, November 30th, just one week after Thanksgiving.
Finally the big day came and M had a horrible tummy ache. We all prayed like crazy that it was just nerves. After school he was feeling better. Grandma Judy and Grandpa Tom arrived before dinner. The kids were thrilled that they were going to be staying with us Thursday-Monday! They couldn't believe that we had just been with one set of grandparents and now we got to be with the other set!

|M: This is when I was given my warm heart!|
|I was so proud of M and couldn't stop smiling. T took many pictures with her play camera.|

|Saying their lines!|
|M started to melt (because of his warm heart... get it?)|
|M gave his heart to someone with a cold heart!|
