Grand baby #5 is here

Logan William (William is after my late father) made his arrival almost 2 weeks early. He arrived  Easter morning at sunrise. 

7 lbs. 10 ounces. 20 inches long. Everyone is doing fine. They were home 36 hours after his birth.

Easter bunny had come a day early at their house. Big brother Connor is now driving in style.

Easter at our house, included frying some delicious fried chicken. The blacksmith was a little under the weather so Jeremy took over for his Dad.

The kids did some egg hunting. 

Easter included the lamb cake. As much trouble as it is for me to make this, holy week is probably not the appropriate week to make it, if you get my drift. 

Danish twist is an Easter tradition too, here it is before the icing was on.

Easter gifts too were part of the day. We then did some facetiming with Sarah and Rusty and the boys in Florida. Boys, I am going to have to get use to BOYS.

To finish out our day, Lizzie pulled her first tooth.  She summed the day up pretty good as she exclaimed "today was a good day, Easter, a new cousin and the tooth fairy!"

Life is good.

Here's a few pictures from the big family get together on Good Friday. There were many gallons of fish fried, a gallon of frogs, hush puppies, and french fries. Always good 
carry-in food too. 

The evening was topped off with a bonfire.

Life doesn't get much better.
