Happy Easter.

We celebrated by firing up the BBQ with all the family over. All together there is 15 of us. You never really know how the day will turn out when we all get together, and I'm going to go out on a limb here and say some get together's are simply better then others. Today was one of the better ones. It wasn't the most beautiful day out, but Oregon was good to us. The temperature was warmer and the rain stayed away.

And when I say we fired up the BBQ, I really mean my husband did. I'm sure he wouldn't mind if I took credit for it, but let's just say it how it is. And I really gotta say, the happy face spatula makes those burgers taste a lil' better. (Ok, well I wouldn't know, cause I'm a vegetarian, but I think all the others would agree!!)

My Mom made cotton candy flavored cupcakes, and they were a hit!

The Easter Bunny made his arrival, and as the little's were huddled into the house with their Papa, he arrived. He hid those eggs well, but these kids managed to find them all. And I believe it was Casey who won this time around, with a whopping 48 eggs found!

Conversations were flowing, games were being played. And Grandma was trying to not get hit!

People were taking pictures of people taking pictures.

And Simply put, some people were just hanging out looking cute.

I guess with the six kids, there is always bound to be a little trouble. Feelings get hurt, but in the end its the kids that comfort each other. They are always there to mend the broken hearts they didn't mean to break. A little brotherly love goes a long way.

This little one has developed quite the personality. I couldn't resist taking this photo as she insisted on going in the house and knocking on the door to get my attention just outside the door.

We had a great day, and we can chalk up another family filled holiday.
I'm a little tired, I started the morning early to help make all these
festivities happen, and I'm going to end it on just one last note ..

Enjoy the little things, we can't take life so seriously!

Happy Easter!
