Welcome to the Sanders House. This little place has been in our family for many years. It has been passed down from generation to generation. There is much love and many memories. My husband Rev.

This year hopes to be just as great. My youngest son Matthew, his girlfriend Vanessa and their best friends Wynikka and Theo will be joining us this year. Well, everyone buy your tickets and come to Momma Sanders home.
