I think once you hit 4 children you are a big family.  My mother told me that she was being greedy when she had me (I am the 3rd) because the world is so over populated and anything over 2 was too many for her.  Until I came along of course.

These days, I think anything over 3 children is considered a 'big family".

I came from a family with 4 kids and everyone refers to us as a big family.

This is so open to interpretation.  I think it depends what you're used to.  My dad was one of 5 and so was my mom and their siblings had kids too.  Christmas is a crazy mess of a holiday where there's a kid's table (us) and now our kids' table.  There's like, 3 tables of family at one dinner - to me, that's a big family.  Of course, we're not as blessed as the Duggars!  Yikes!
