Puzzle Update

I have to take a minute and tell of my failure.  :-)   I don't know that I have ever done this before, but I gave up on the second puzzle. It was a very challenging puzzle. It was a painting of two bears ice skating. You know how a painting up close looks like just gobs of paint and you have to step back to see the beauty of the painting. So these puzzle pieces just looked like gobs of paint.  I would sit for 1/2 hour or more and get in 1 (if I was lucky)  piece.  I made a little progress but it just wasn't coming together.  I had it on my kitchen table and need the table for a sewing project.  So I boxed  it back up.  When my basement gets cleared out of pool parts and construction tools, I'll have to set up the card table and try again.

Baby Blessing

I was able to go to Salt Lake this past weekend for Nash's baby blessing.  He sure is getting big.  Mom says he's 15 pounds. We pulled and tugged and finally got him into Dugan's blessing outfit.  It was a snug fit.

Sunday, January 15, 2012 - Blessing Day
I was glad that I went.  Not many there.  Wayne blessed him so Wayne and Nancy was there.  LaVon and I were the only other family.  Lecia's friend and family was also there.  Nash's dad was there but left as soon as the blessing was over.

I was just outside sitting on my patio after a walk and the most amazing thing happened.  Porcupines!  O.K. it's really just two of my cats.  They were wrestling on the grass.  The very dry grass.  I busted up laughing when they were finished.  I went in the house and had to get the camera.  The grass wasn't sticking straight up quite as much when I got back out.

Puzzle Time

Yes, thanks to some friends I got a couple of puzzles for Christmas.  I thought I was doing the hard one first........nope, it was just right.

The challenge was/is puzzle number 2.  I had a hard time just getting the edge together.  After almost a week of working on it I really haven't got much more finished.

I'll keep you posted.

Christmas Break

 Here I sit on my last day of Christmas break. So much I should do but not sure I want to do much of anything. It's been a good time off school. I spent a few days in the warm weather of Las Vegas. Christmas day was good. Just look. . . Loren was so tired after opening everything she had to have a nap. It had nothing to do with the fact she got up earlier than she had for over a week. I think there might have been just a bit to much Christmas. Look at the stack of wrapping paper behind her.

Davis spends his time in the kitchen making protein shakes!

Loren spends her time in the kitchen making cookies!
