A week with cousins

Back in December, Chuck's cousin David passed away. To enable Chuck's sisters to be able to go to the services in Utah, I watched my niece and nephew for a few days. We had a great time playing together. I had a 6, 4, 3, and two 2 yr olds for 5 days. It was exhausting.
Zetta was the little princess who wanted to be in dress ups all day long. Charly enjoyed having a super buddy with Houston.
My aunt and I took the kids to the Festival Of Lights at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.

The favorite discovery of all was the train display. Around the outside of the display were buttons the kids could push to make some of the figurines or buildings do things. One button made a house smoke from fire then the fire truck would come. It was awesome!
We wore those kids out. It was so much fun.

When Hock and his brother came to pick up the kids at the end of the week we acted out the nativity story together several times so that everyone could take turns with different roles.
We then took a chilly stroll down by the James before they headed back to NC and stopped by the Richmond Battlefield National Park building.
My girls know right where to go for the Civil War dressups in the National Park building.
