"Making" Friends

I am happy to report that Alex and I had a much-awaited (and much-needed) day at home today. No visits to the mall, zoo, museum or otherwise. No errands to the grocery or pet store. Just a day to relax, clean the house, and work on some 'rainy day projects'-- like the puppet kit that the "Owl Lady" (GrandMama's good friend Jana) gave Alex for her birthday.

It was perfect-- no glue or scissors needed, and the finished creations are super-cute. It's a Martha Stewart craft kit, and I was very impressed with the quality of the materials--- nice heavy duty felt and substantial fabric-coved bags for the bodies! Way to go, Martha!

The finished product!
