April A to Z Challenge: G is for ...

G is for Grampires!

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.


  1. Great looking grandkids, all.

  2. Auntie M: I think all grandkids come in only one style--adorable.

  3. Aww, what a sweet post, and cute grandkids.

  4. V.:Thank you so much for dropping by, and for your nice comment. Hope to see you again soon! It looks like you have been having fun doing the A-Z challenge too. I loved your post on hope.

    Claire: Thank you so much! I checked out your site and now I am very curious about Flogging Molly. I shall have to check them out. Thanks for visiting!


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
