The kids loved to get their grandpa. Lots of pillow fights were had, usually ending with big old hugs. Which reminds me of a cute story. My dad and I were cutting up the apples for apple pie when he got a little nick from the knife. I know how kids will respond to these things, so I announced that grandpa had an ouchie. All the kids came into the kitchen to see the ouchie and all of them, one by one, gave him a hug and a kiss to make him feel better. Even little 1-year-old Blaize brought up the rear to give grandpa a hug like all the other kids had.
