My dad (Big G) and stepmom (Granny Lola) found some really cute stuff for the Canadoca for Christmas this year. One item was her own little teddy bear wheely luggage (soon to be seen being lugged through an airport near you - um, no actually. It's not meant for the kind of travel we do. But it's fun and the Canadoca loves it!). Another, which is a great idea for all grandparents far away from their grandkids - Record a Story.
This little book has my dad's voice trapped inside of it, reading Twas the Night Before Christmas to the Canadoca personally, as she turns the pages! It's so cute. I cried and cried and cried when she opened it. I am really turning into a wimp.
Record a Story has a few other titles too, a book called "Guess How Much I Miss You" and Dora and Sesame Street as well. Check out their web site here.
