Here are some Life IS Good pictures.

Throwing rocks in the water--wicked cool
Some of Olivia's pictures that were on my camera
A breakfast picnic (Daddy had got home at 1:30 AM unexpectedly and had to sleep in the kids room, since the kids were all piled in with me.) We didn't want to wake up Daddy, so we had oatmeal, PBJ's and PB Toast on Mommy and Daddy's bed! And I just referred to myself in the third person as Mommy.
All of us Cottens
Gilbert thinks pictures are funny
These next pictures should actually be at the very beginning of the post, but for some reason aren't. I am pretty sure this doesn't bother me. If it keeps me awake at all tonight I will change it.
We got Gilbert a leash! He loves it.
Where the hustle and bustle was
Caleb and David splitting wood
Going to see the new calf. Hooray! Lily and Cheyenne are being cute.
Owen, Matt H., and a new calf
Elm tree buds
Drawing off some syrup
Elliott being tough and carrying in the wood
Trying to determine if Lily has the required muscle mass to help carry wood. She failed. This seriously cracked me up. He was so serious about it.
Gilbert meeting Miss Mercedes Grace H
Cody gave the kids motorcycle rides and the mother's heart palpitations. And not from how cool he was. The kids loved it and he drove slow for just a tiny ways, but there were sighs of relief each time he returned.
Gilbert indulging in some mud
Nate and Lily
Being tough in a twirly skirt is hard to do
Going to collect sap
