Yesterday was a holiday here in Italy. Stefano and his family didn't work so around two thirty, we went to his mom's house and all sat down to lunch together. She cooked lasagna (homemade!), sausage, meatballs and vegetables. It was so delicious, and to top it all of, we ate a delicious tiramisu for dessert! After lunch, we went into the living room to start setting up the Christmas tree. I've only helped decorate a tree once in my life, which was last year, for the first time. His family hadn't put one up in 4 years. Rosanna, Silvia and I all fixed the branches, added the ornaments and strung the lights. Stefano only helped with lights, at the end! But in the end, it turned out beautifully. Rosanna added some decorations on the walls throughout the house as well as outside the front door. It was such a beautiful day, together with family.
