792

Dear Family,

792 ... that's how many tortellini Nonna, Nonno, and I spent all yesterday morning making.

Nonno rolled enough dough to make 792.
I filled 792 tortellini.
Nonna folded 792 tortellini.

We are positive the number is 792 because Nonno lined up all the tortellini military style in rows of ten. He can be very efficient.

And this year we made 792 (the most EVER) all by ourselves. No one else helped. No. One.

792 is a lot of work . . .

And I'm sure all of you are really, really, really appreciative.




p.s. I need a new guitar, a new camera, a gift certificate to Starbucks, oh, and a Kindle would be nice. But if it's too much trouble ... you can at least do the dishes:)
