A few weeks ago I was starting to feel a cold coming on, but it happened to be the day that Emily Martin was going to be on Martha. I really wanted to see the show, and the only way I could guarantee that I'd get to see it (and hear it) is to go to the Y, so that's where we headed after dropping Rachel off at school. I caught the show and was inspired to make some of the dolls that she made with Martha as Easter gifts for the girls and my niece. By the time I got around to it (mid. week last week) I had to act fast, but they came together relatively easily and were somewhat of a hit, although the candy was far more exciting. Directions and the pattern for the doll can be found on Martha's site. The downside of being able to see the show was that I think my workout did me in for the rest of the week and then some. I battled that cold for a while, but am happy that it is gone now.
Also gone is what we woke up to the day after Easter. With no mention of it on the news, sneaky mother nature dropped a few inches of snow Monday morning. Rachel's response was "It snows after Easter?!?". I don't know if it was so surprising to her because it's now officially spring and it shouldn't be snowing any more or if she thought it was some sort of rule that it snows the day after Easter, and will be awaiting it next year as well.
