As soon as I saw you I knew a grand adventure was about to happen. -Pooh
It is always a grand adventure visiting the Cheyenne Nicholas family. Last time I had to be Balto and hide under the table in my cave with Jackson and Carter, who were also Balto. This time I was the troll and Jackson was the billy goat gruff. That involved me saying he couldn’t cross the bridge. He then would head butt me in the leg and I would dramatically fall to the ground. Carter just randomly yells, SKUNK GHOST! Which is followed by lots of running from imaginary stinky Skunk Ghosts. These boys think up the most entertaining games.
Grandpa got in on it sometimes too. He also had fun reading to the boys. The boys loved him to pieces big beard and all, especially when he brought home dried fruit to share. Mom let us make a big mess in the kitchen when we made cookies. She also let the boys suck on these huge suckers just so Grandma could get them to hold still for a few minutes.
I love visiting Jarred and Christina and their boys. There is never a dull moment, and life is full of hugs and sticky fingers and dirt and wrestling and creative games to play. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving when I get to have all of my grand babies in one place. Oh the fun we will have pretending then.
