A nice weekend

This weekend we had some company! We had Cainan's first real visitors, and it was nice. Mat's sister Teen and her husband, Frank came and visited us for the weekend. It was nice to have them here. We had a nice weekend visiting and Teen and Frank were glad they had a chance to meet Cainan. It was a nice little break as well - someone else to play with the kids! HA! Teen and Frank came in on Saturday early afternoon and stayed until Sunday early afternoon. The kids behaved well and we all had a great time.
Finley is feeling slightly better. She still has a very congested cough and runny nose, but the laryngitis is pretty much so gone. No fever either all weekend. So she will be returning to school tomorrow. I know that coughs tend to linger the longest, so I think she is well enough to go to school. She had a pretty good day today. She still isn't eating great, but doing pretty well. I know she is getting some molars as well, so I know that isn't helping and contributing to her grouchiness.
Mat has left on a short business trip tonight. He will be in Conneticut until Tuesday. My parents are coming in for a visit starting tomorrow, so it will be nice to have their company. This is a busy week for us, so it will be great to have the extra hands. Plus, it will be nice to have someone else to play with the kids! Arlington is so excited that her grandparents are coming. That made saying goodbye to her daddy for a few days a little easier.
You will be proud of me - without Mat here tonight I managed to get all the kids fed, and kept happy, and bathed and put to bed by 8pm! And everyone did really well! No one put up too much of a fight. Now I am relaxing and ready to crash myself.
We took some pictures this weekend from our visitors, so enjoy! Tomorrow starts another busy week for us!

I love the new family picture, I can see the Steeler logo on Cainan's helmet. But after yesterday' game fiasco, maybe you should hide it until the team wakes up and starts to play with a little constincy. Nanny
