We have two holidays at our house. Of course we celebrate other holidays but twice a year we host the whole family at our house. Easter is the first one and we have a huge egg hunt in our back yard. The other one is Thanksgiving. At both, the buffet style dinner starts at noon and we feast and visit all day.
This year we were gone on Easter so we postponed it until the Saturday before Mother's Day and had a soup day. Six kinds of soup, breads, desserts...the works. That was last Saturday and it rained!! That meant no Easter egg hunt and every one had to stay in the house...all 37 of us. We all loved the time we had even though it was a noisy zoo. Today, since it is throw-back-Thursday, I'm only throwing back less than a week with the pictures. My house was clean before they all arrived and it was clean when the left, but in between...you can see for yourself!
