It’s been like that every year of our life. It’s been an incredible blast. All the grandkids would get into bed with my grandparents as they read the newspaper. We would snuggle together and chat."

Adds Jenna: "You may notice in this picture there is an antique toy, a Teddy Ruxpin. We really loved Teddy Ruxpin and those memories with our grandparents."
