I don't think they really mind, though, as long as they get their gift.
Some of these children make more money than me. I was thinking of a new family tradition: when you make more money than Granny, you start sending her a gift on your birthday.

I got "proof of coverage" letters from my health insurance company in the mail the other day and I was explaining to these children's grandfather what he would need to do when we no longer had our present insurance and started Medicare coverage. He said, "You don't honestly believe I am going to remember this, do you?"

One day, we went shopping and took the ABC song with us. It was "old people shopping" day at Walmart and they were very interested in his little machine.
One lady saw his ear bud and asked me, "what is at the other end of that?" (Papa said she might have thought it was a hearing aide) Several asked me, " how old is he?", and just shook their heads.
He likes to look at scrapbooks, too. (if you want to be Granny's favorite, that's all it takes) He is naming all the family members from our reunion last fall here.
He also likes to play with my spool nativity set that Aunt Jenny made me and read a Christmas story book.
This one does not look like he likes to play with me, either. (He really does like playing the game....but not having his picture taken.)
This one came over to play Scrabble, too, but he had an agenda. He knew he had to play, but his real goal was to watch TV...a favorite activity at Granny's house that is limited at home. He did play, though... almost as long as his brother.
