Bad to Worse: Obnoxious Invader

Cheoah’s problem yesterday was that a brother was on her couch. Today, things have grown worse with an obnoxious invader in her space.

The problem with complaining about something, like a brother sleeping in your spot, is that things can always get worse. For poor Miss Cheoah, that means His Haughtiness Little Prince Typhoon Phooey has entered the picture.

But he's being so sweet.
But he’s being so sweet.

Oh, sure, this looks like our royal is just being nice to his sister, but we’ve shared the house with him for years. We know how things can turn quickly.

    Watched Miss Cheoah in the video and OH what a song she sang. I am glad I wasn’t there because I too would have crawled in with her(or tried to anyway)! BUT sweetie-Hu-Dad wasn’t being mean-he was helping your leg heal and now 5 years later-you are doing well!

    Oh NO Miss Cheoah-Brothers can be such a pain and it looks like Typhoon Phooey is the worst of the worst! I hope you bit him back!

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
