Any advice on how to tell my grandparents they are about to become Great Grandparents? They are about to go away for a month so i want to tell them in the next few days.
They are very umm i guess the word is dignified people, elegant almost so I’ve been trying to think of something that isn’t too cheesy, having no luck.

I took my laptop over to there house with my ultrasound cd. Loaded on the computer while we were all busy talking and then out of nowhere I said " hey, I've got a photo to show you, it's really cool". They were so excited the moment they saw it, knew exactly what it was

If they are dignified and elegant I don't feel that a gimmick is at all necessary, remember when people would just say " We are expecting a baby in 6 months" instead of printing t-shirts and making gifts? I am sure that the excitement of the announcement is enough!

I went to visit my grandparents and told them I wanted to talk about family history (they were always up for a trip down memory lane).
I asked them what they both remembered of their grandparents, and then what they remembered about their great grandparents. I then asked what they'd like their new ggchild to know and remember about them.

One of my friends recently gave her grandparents a small box with a picture of the first scan in a beautiful frame. You could also attach a lovely little card about what it means to become 'great grandparents'!
Good luck and let us know what you end up doing.

I gave my g'parents a bunch of photos of general things, and at the end had a pic of our scan and a message 'meet your great grandchild'.

Awwwwww, some of these ideas are so special!
I have to say, I'm a bit jealous! My parents are both one of six children so it'll be about the 50th great grandchild on each side, nothing special!
