Briana Culberson's sons Troy, 6, and Owen, 4, are growing up fast, as we recently learned. So it's a good thing that their grandma Vicki Gunvalson is taking every opportunity to spend time with her loved ones before these little boys become young men.
Of course, Grandma Vicki had to go out to North Carolina to spend the mother of all family holidays with her daughter Briana, her son-in-law Ryan Culberson, and her grandkids. As she teased in November, Vicki and her boyfriend, Steve Lodge, jetted off to the other side of the country to spend Christmas with her daughter and her family. "Merry Christmas everyone. Wishing you all a blessed day with your family and loved ones," Vicki shared with fans on Instagram on Christmas Day. "@stevelodge_oc and I are heading to NC to spend the next 10 days with Briana and her family. Looking forward to seeing my grandsons tonight."
There's definitely no place "happy nana" Vicki would rather be, as evidenced by these adorable photos she took with Troy and Owen.
And it's only going to get better when The Real Housewives of Orange County family sets sail for a cruise.

We have photographic proof that Steve is too cute with Vicki's grandsons, too.
Briana and her family moved to North Carolina in November 2017 after living in California and Oklahoma prior to that. Though living so far away from her daughter over the past year hasn't been easy for Vicki, she shared with The Daily Dish podcast in August that she is learning how to make the best out of a difficult situation. “If she can commit to come a couple, three times a year and I’ll go to her, we’ll make the best of it until she decides to get her ass back to California," Vicki shared. “[At] the end of the day, I need my daughter happy, and if she’s happy out there, breaks my heart but I’m gonna figure out a way to make it work.”
