grands coming today!

3 preschooler cousins will be here today.  I think the weather will be pleasant enough for lots of outdoor play.  

Indoors- I set out 3 babies, all with their own blanket and bottle.  Toddlers are not fond of sharing but we are working on it.  
Stickers, big crayons and poster board for art time 
An assortment of spill proof cups so they can each choose - and a dry erase marker so Grandma can remember who's is who's.  
The planes, motorcycles and construction vehicles are ready for play!  They will be flown and driven all over the house by the little boys.  
Yesterday. I did some food prep- cooking 4 pounds of ground beef into taco meat filling.  Some will be for supper tonight and 2 meal size containers went into the freezer for future meals.  
And I got some fresh fruit ready for either lunch or supper today.  

It will be a fun and busy day.  It will be easier with some preparations done ahead.

You had me there for a while! I was wondering, how in the world would you take care of three babies!! I remember the days when I kept grandchildren; I had a box filled with papers, etc. too, and a closet full of toys which there mothers had played with. I know you will enjoy them.

Good organization! The picture of the babies and their bottle reminded me of those bottles where it looks like the milk is going down! I loved those! Oh how sweet! I want to run out and get one for Harper but I might be jumping the gun a bit!
You are one wonderful Grandma! xxx

Great idea to prepare ahead of time. I need to keep that in mind when I keep my 4 grandchildren (all 5 and under!) I do keep a basket of toys at the ready, but making them food when they're here is challenging. Preparing the food ahead of time is brilliant! Have a great time with your grands. :-)
