6. If you could change one thing about the world your grandchildren live in, what would it be and why?

10. What’s your grandchildren’s favorite foods?
Answer: I have not had them for that many visits alone so I really don’t really know this. Jalyssa likes Goldfish and Jake like vanilla ice cream and will eat it every time.
The “grands” were at Nana Debbie’s when her prize arrived and her granddaughter decorated the NanaHood bag for her. Makes it more personal, don’t you think?
