|We left up our snowmen as we figure they're more "winter" than|
Christmas, specifically. And they're bright and cheerful. We
also left our woodland "throws" on the backs of the sofas (below).
|We rearranged our furniture a bit to add a little reading nook by the wood stove. This is Theresa's new favorite spot.|
What I'm wearing... blue jean skirt; earthtone and blue butterfly- printed tee with sparkles; brown cardigan with blue trim, red fuzzy slippers (because one shouldn't match too perfectly on a vacation day).

Bring to a boil, cover, and set to simmer for however long it takes to get the kids rounded up and the table cleaned off and set, plus maybe a rosary if you're gang is fast. (Roughly about an hour). But the soup can be set to simmer longer, if it's on very low heat and watched so the water doesn't cook down too low. If you make a great big pot like I did Saturday, there'll be plenty for left-over lunches all week long. Yum!
