I am thankful...day 6

Today I am thankful for my sister Chris, her husband Tim and their three kids, Jessica, Cheyanne and Carson. When Jessica was born, I was able to have my sister come stay with me for a few weeks and I got to spoil Jessica rotten. When Cheyanne was a few months old, I got to keep her for a weekend by myself. That was fun, but tiring. Carson came along a lot later and he comes over for special auntie time and sleepovers with the cousins.
Chris works hard for her family. She has always held down a job, even when the kids were little. She is generous with all of the kid's friends and spends time transporting them from place to place.
Tim is always willing to lend a hand when needed. He enjoys being with his family and is a "pal" to Carson all the time. He spends lots of "guy" time with Carson, but then can turn around and hang out with his girls. Chris & Tim moved up here last year and we have had many opportunities to hang out and do family BBQ's and pool parties.
Jessi and Cheyanne come over and spend time with us whenever they can. They are busy teenagers, so that time is few and far between, but we love it when they are here. They also babysit for us when we need them to. Carson loves to come over and play on the farm and ride his motorcycle. He loves to play with Evan and Sierra.
Thanks for being part of our lives and giving us the chance to be closer to the kids. We love you.
