I have survived!!!

We had all four kids here all weekend-- from Thursday evening till Sunday evening.  And we made it.  Whew!

Steve had to trade days at work to take days off later this week so he couldn't take the boys for his time this weekend and it was Wayne's full weekend of custody. 

OH

MY

GOODNESS, the pandemonium!  Scheduling naps and meals and entertaining them all.

Still, here it is Monday morning.  The house is clean.  My boys are watching DVRed episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba (which they absolutely LOVE) and I'm casually sipping my coffee.  All is right in the world.

Wayne took 3 of the 4 to Chuck E. Cheese on Saturday afternoon while I went to Target and Michaels with Nathan.  I met him there in time to watch Joey stealing food and drinks from other people's tables.  Andy and Lexi were running around like mad.  On Sunday Wayne's parents came over for dinner and football.  I made Daisy Martinez's roast chicken (I made 2 actually because I thought Wayne's brother, Jesse, was coming too), mashed potatoes and green beans amandine.  YUM!!!  Dinner was awesome, football not so good.  The Falcons lost their third game in a row. 

We did resolve my child care issues for our trip.  Steve is coming here on Wednesday.  He'll park his car in my garage and take the minivan to Pittsburgh to see his parents.  Then on Sunday, he's going to leave Pittsburgh to get to my house around Joey's bedtime.  Wayne's parents will be here.  Steve will put Joey to bed and tuck him in all snuggly and leave Andy with Sue and Ron.  They'll spend the night here and the afternoon with the monsters, until we get in from Atlanta.  I'm so grateful they're willing to do this for us.  Otherwise we'd be rushing from the Georgia Dome to the airport, trying to get on a flight standby to get to Keansburg before Steve has to leave for work on Monday morning. 

So, now that that's resolved, I can get excited about the trip to Atlanta!!!  It's for the Falcons' Message Board get-together.  We get to hang at the hotel with other Falcons' fans, BBQ, carry on and then go to the game.
