This was my first holiday that we've "hosted"... we always managed to get invited somewhere or be with family for previous days. So it was a nice challenge for me:

The guests:

My sister Marie, brother Nate, Kanesha and their baby Delion. Steve's brother Charley, and a buddy Steve works with on base.

The menu:

Coca-Cola Ham
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Corn Pudding
Deviled Eggs
Fresh Veggies

...and a divine Carrot Cake with cream cheese frosting I made that even STEVE loves!

We did a little egg hunt in the backyard and Leo cleaned house, observant boy that he is!
Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Alleluia!
