Now that extended families living together or even in the same state is more unlikely in the past, what are some ways you choose to involve family in your children's lives?

We like to call, skype, fly home when we can, have grandparents visit when they are able, and send snail mail. I really wish my mum and sisters could live closer, but that is life.

    My in laws are in town, so the kids see this grandma all the time.. Hubby's dad is in Florida, so they have never met him. We see my family (except for brothers and their kids) about once a month. Most of them are only six hours away. But we call, text and are on facebook all the time.
