ready. set. GO to Grandma’s for cooking, crafts and a sleepover!

Oh, the plans we have for an evening with three grandbabies.  First on the schedule – we needed to make dinner.  The menu?  Mac and Cheese, Pigs in a Blanket.  Chips.  Milk.  The chefs are quite pleased with their creations.

Here, they practice their pose for the cover of Kid Foodies –  June edition.IMG_1395 IMG_1396 IMG_1397

After dinner, we finished up some cool art projects of painting on canvas.  Each one designed and created their very own piece of art to present to their daddies for Father’s Day in a couple of days.

What is better than an evening movie and some trail mix?

 Marluce was an abundance of kisses all evening … Mateo was his special sweet self gently guiding Max from fun to task…Max was in his element and loving every minute with his Virginia cousins.  Marluce and Mateo shared the sectional, sleeping toe to toe.  Max had his mattress out there with every intention on sleeping out with his cousins.  But, he is still just a little boy and came in to to very late with tears “Nana, I want to sleep in my room”  Well, I cannot turn that down, so I got his mattress and his bedding and moved it into his room (which is really a cutout in our bedroom wall that just fits the width of his mattress.  Sound asleep seconds later.

What a wonderful evening.  A Nana’s dream.
