A Puzzling New Year!

The New Year 
was a puzzle to us!

Grampa & Gramma joined in on the challenge!

Let me tell you
it is a doozy!

We're still working on it!
You'd think this would be easy....

After the jigsaw is completed
you need to work the 
Crossword Puzzle, too!

At the countdown 
crackers were opened!

All the festivities
 was just 
too much

H-A-P-P-Y   2-0-0-9   T-O   A-L-L !!!!!

WOW, that puzzle looks like it will drive ya nuts. When we used to summer in NC, I always had a puzzle going. My DH made me a huge round board that he put on a turn table, so I wouldn't have to get out of my chair. It was in front of a big picture window and I would watch the deer come down for the corn I threw out for them.AWW, those were the good old days and I miss them. :)

I love puzzles! This looks like fun. I was so lazy I went to bed at 9:00. I'd been working hard all day and just couldn't keep my eyes open any more. How's that for boring?!

Hi Robyn! Oh, I love those jig saw puzzles, but it did look hard! Poor little fuzzy face - all tuckered out! Thank you so much for your concerns about my Mother. I know she'll get better each day.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

the one reason I no longer do jigsaw puzzles is because I get so addicted that I will literally stay up all night doing them.
