On the mend???

We had an uneventful weekend....well, sort of. We were all still getting better, and really just stayed home to relax. I was hoping to be back to normal today, but I am still feeling queasy and Eve woke up with a fever again today. We even had to cancel a play date! :( NO FUN!! The highlights of our weekend were the Valentines Package from Grandma (my mom) and Kim's birthday surprise. We also had a sewer back up, but that's no fun...who wants to hear about that?? Not me!!

On Saturday we got a package from my mom. The girls LOVE getting mail and my mom always addresses thing to them. Aurora vetoed my photographic efforts, but she got a little lunchbox with 4 Hello Kitty Pez dispensers. She has been collecting Pez dispensers and these are now the jewels of her collection! Eve was allowed to pick one of the Pez dispensers (I love it when they share with no prompting form me) and she also got a sweet little puppy stuffed animal. It has quickly become her little side kick! With the exception of Aurora's doll Rena, Eve has never really taken to a toy like this. I'm glad this time the toy belongs to her!

Since I was cooped up all weekend I needed a project to work on. I have plenty already on my needles, but I wanted to do something quick. Besides it was my best friends birthday on Sunday so I thought I could do something for her. I recently got a steal on some Rowan yarn so I have a bunch sitting around. I decided to make her the Lottie bag that is in a Rowan pattern book I have. It turned out really cute! I even lined it so that her knitting needles wouldn't fall through. I think the gift was a hit. By the time I left her house Sunday afternoon the bag was already in use holding a sweater in progress! My knitting bag has seen better days, so maybe I'll make one for me too!!
