Just stopping by to wish everyone a very happy Easter!

We're doing our family dinner tonight rather than tomorrow due to conflicting schedules, so I've been busily cooking since yesterday. The menu will, of course, include a spiral-sliced ham, as well as sweet potato casserole, macaroni and cheese, dressing, deviled eggs, coleslaw, Watergate salad and dinner rolls. My daughter is contributing a lovely relish tray. Dessert will be Boston Cream Pie Cake, Simple Lemon Pie (sugar-free) and Rice Krispie Treat Balls dipped in white chocolate. (Well, that didn't go as planned....didn't realize just how sticky those things are! They are now squares with chocolate drizzled over the top.)

The best part of the day will be seeing all the family - our grown "kids" and the two grandsons! They've grown so much....I remember when the older one was small and we had his first Easter egg hunt in the back yard. We had to hide those things about 5 times because he kept saying, "Do it again!" :-)

I'd better get back to the kitchen. The food prep is almost finished, so now it's time to set the tables and assemble the cake. Photos to come later.

What are your Easter traditions, memories or menus? Please feel free to share!
