Puzzle from Hell

link here
This is one of Alex's gifts. In three days, we got the outside border completed & about 10 pieces inside. This has 500 pieces ... it is quite the challenge!!!!

Looks interesting ...

Nicholas got this kewl tangram puzzle game. Alex and I are just itching for him to open the plastic wrapping so we can give it a try. Looks like up to four players can create the images in the book. Seems the idea is to try and get the image done before the other players finish. Poor Nicholas has been working a lot & we have to talk him into opening this up : )

Just resting ....

I don't know much about the movie; however, IMO - the book was GREAT!!! I read it & still think one of the best I've ever read.

Snow Day

Beatrice (Left) & Buddy (Right)

The boyz were late to school this a.m. Classes started on time & the whole family was running behind. Had to clear the drive. Nice day to be indoors. I hear we expect a few more inches this a.m. & the storm should pass us by around noon.

It is a dog's life

Awesome haircut!!
