Every year my mom saves up all her change and we start Christmas with the kids dividing up all Grandma's change between the 3 grandkids. This started out being to "pay" them for cleaning up all the wrapping paper and boxes but it's kind of loss that meaning and is just a bunch of money now!
Next Grandma and Grandpa get to open their gifts. Sometimes they need help.
Sometimes they don't know what they got.
This year that happened a lot.
Luckily David, my sister's SO got them something they recognized - a BBQ spatula! You can see him in the mirror looking pretty proud of his idea.
The spatula came in handy a few minutes later to open the Crate & Barrel box!
Next up - the kids get to open their presents!
