Christmas, Family, and Snow

Just popping in for a quick hello!  I'm busy working on some new springy things today but to be honest with you, it's hard to get back in the groove.  I really have enjoyed my Christmas break.
We had a ton of family with us this year in my little house.  It was crazy, fun.
This was the food line Christmas Eve.  It goes all the way through my dining room and around the corner into the living room. 
My gorgeous niece.  We had on matching necklaces (unplanned)....I am so with the "in" crowd. 
 Lydia "finally" got a cell phone.  Now I have to learn to text AND remember to keep my phone charged.
Hannah "Olde Lady Kitty" opening her present "There's got to be catnip in there somewhere." 
 Snow the day after.  Which is almost as good as a white Christmas.

How are you?  Did you have a nice holiday?

I've taken down the last of the Christmas decorations and the Christmas tree is thrown out.  
I didn't think I had so many decorations up this year since I was keepin' it simple, but it took some time and everyday I find something little that I forgot.  
Already I'm thinking about spring...
but I do love all this snow!

Ok I'm off to give my sewing machine a good workout today!

Have a good one ~ Jenn xo

(I hate coming up with a post title...how about that clever one above?)
I was suppose to start back to work today buuuut I decided to make bread and soup instead. It's that kind of a day.
I'm on this kick right now to figure out Dino's nonna's (grandma's) bread recipe. She's been gone for awhile now and spoke Italian anyways. 
She had the BEST bread, 
and no one has her recipe.  
I've been talking to Dino's family, compiling what they remember. 
This was my second attempt....any tips would be appreciated.
It needs to be chewier/heavier I think. 
And someone mentioned they thought she used crisco ~ anyone??
xxo Jenn
