What is a Grampire*, you might ask? A Grampire is an older, red-eyed creature that dotes on and incessantly spoils small munchkins known as "grandchildren."
[Computer Geek insisted I leave his eyes red in this photo]
Below, you will find photos of some of the Grampires' playthings, youngest to oldest. (Shh..some of these happy kids don't know yet that we're not biologically their grandparents. We mix the genetic and heart-born grandchildren all together in one joyous lump.)
Pixie the Precious, who is now 8 months old
Radison, the radically beautiful, just turned one
Chunk, with a chunk of 2nd birthday cake. At least this year he knew he was supposed to eat it.
Avatar, the amazingly clever, age 7
Pinque, the protective big sister, age 7
Hoolie, age 7, before going onstage for her "Little Butterfly" dance performance
River, age 11, helping us move tons of coal. Yes, he is that strong.
Dash, the Scandinavian, who knows that if he wants treats from his Irish grandparents on St. Patrick's Day, he'd better wear green.
If you have a child who does not have Grampires in his or her life, we'll take anybody.
* The term "grampire" is not original, but was discovered by Computer Geek on a website known as Funny or Die. Because of the somewhat edgy nature of some of the videos on the site, no link will be provided. You can thank me later.
