Tis a puzzlement

The New Year puzzle tradition continues at the shoebox castle, and what better image on the puzzle than an actual castle? This year, though, the kids haven't been too interested in helping. Katie has always been the traditionist and the avid puzzlist in the home, and she's not here! Jim and I worked on it on and off yesterday (I took a time out to go to Target and buy a bookshelf for the new sewing room). I watched "Firefly" episodes while puzzling and ate WAY too many peanut m&ms.

Speaking of Katie, she comes home for a visit on Sunday. I fully expect a battle of ownership over vehicles, since she seems to think she will be larking about, visiting friends and former flute teachers. I may have to arm wrestle her for the van once or twice.

Yes, the puzzle seems appropriate for your own castle. I'm sorry to hear that your non-Katie children have no interest in it though. You should require at least 30 minutes a day from them. Wouldn't they love you for that?

How fun for Katie to come back for a visit! I'm sure she's itchin' to see everyone and be back home for a bit. I wish we could come, but we've traveled enough lately. Although Mike is talking about a MLK trip, but my girls won't be off from school for that.

Love the castle theme! I must get my puzzle going. My kids always want to put the last piece in. I do the majority of the work and they want the satisfaction. What are we to do?
