Chili Cook-off

Little did my parents know when they were raising their four children that it could blossom into this:

It is utterly amazing to all of us that we have this crew running around at family gatherings. We know how it happens, but how does it happen?! We have ages 9, 7, 7, 4, 3, 2, 1, 1, 1, 4 mos.

Last night we all got together for a chili cook-off. The brain-child of one sister, carried out masterfully by another. Thanks, Girls for pulling off such a fun event...great memories were made!

There were five different kinds of chili and three different pies...we ate well! Prizes were awarded for Spiciest, Best, Most Unique and Best Looking (for the pies, not the chili).
Finally, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, we cranked the latino music out the mini-van windows and the kids took turns having at the pinata...with a hockey stick, of course!
