And, the dancer of the group, Laena, put on costumes which she had packed in her suitcase and performed an exerpt from The Nutcracker Ballet.(Please note the white "cast" on Laena's arm. Placed there by her sister for some reason: it's actually a sock. Love it!)
These younger cousins are finally getting the idea that Anne and John are their cousins - not aunt or uncle - due to the many years in age difference. It really is a lot of fun to be able to see young ones in action again as well having Uncle Paul remember how he thought Anne and John were very "energetic" as young ones - and now they seem so mellow and easy!
Kari and John made a special trip from Omaha, just to join our group for Saturday and Sunday...thanks!! If you see John, you'll have to ask him what it was like to attend his first Husker football game!
More to come...
