You should take the time to hand write them a letter, a letter is so much more personal then an email and people really like getting mail.

I was going to say the same thing as @tksjewelry said. Write them a letter! Getting a letter in the mail is very special. I know you mentioned you’ve said hi on Skype a few times but maybe sit there with your Fiance while he’s on there with him and you may get more used to them and talk more.

Maybe you can set up a regular time to skype? Like every sunday evening or every other sunday so you can stay in touch. There is also connectng on facebook. Sharing everyday little events will make you feel closer.

my In laws are also half a world away. I call them often, ( probbaly once every 2 weeks, 3 ) I skyped with mother in law a few times.. and I also FB my Sister in law from time to time. It works for us, and its  not on a daily basis kind of thing – it helps and they appreciate it!
