We were joking about this at Christmas. I just called them Dave's mom and Dave's dad. Good laughs. I then became Dave's wife. LOL. IDK why, but it's still kind of weird for me to call them by their first names. I have before, but now with the kids, I just call them Mamaw and Papaw.

They passed away before we were married/had kids, but I called them by their first names.
ETA: When I speak about them to the kids I call them Grandpa Ken and Grandma Gloria and Aylie knows that those are daddy's parents.

My DH's mom dies 20 days before we got married and I've always called them by their first name. Although, my kids don't see him much, they call their grand dad Daddy's daddy. Something my son just used once and it stuck. I use Grand dad though when talking about him to the kids.
