WHAT'S THAT PUZZLE YOU'RE DOING DEAR?


We had Joe's Dad over for dinner a few weeks ago (his Mom was sick in the hospital) and after dinner Annalise came with a puzzle. So being the sweet Grandpa he is, he started helping Annalise figure it out. Then Joe came over and the two guys were both helping. Well, about three minutes after starting, Annalise lost interest (maybe because the boys were hogging all the pieces!) and left. And did the boys loose interest? No Way! This was serious puzzle time now. They got pretty stressed out when they couldn't find where a few pieces went. Now, you may be thinking, "What's the big deal about two grown men, doing a puzzle?" Well, let me tell you......IT WAS A CINDERELLA, PRINCESS, TOTALY GIRLY PUZZLE! It was so funny to see father and son bonding over a princess puzzle, not hunting or fishing, but a princess puzzle! :-) Joe later confessed that Cinderella was one of his favorites when he was a little boy. But not to worry ladies.... He's all man now........that is except for the occasional princess puzzle party! :-)

Sweetness. I love watching father/son stuff (dont get to see it too much) and Alise is so cute putting you in your place with all the complaining too.

She does look grown up in your last post. Time goes by so fast.
BTW--you can come over and play anytime you want. We often get visitors from around the corners.

What a fun puzzle! That's hilarious! We leave for So Cal middle of May so we'll be down there when you are there. That would be way fun to meet up with you guys! I want to see your adorable little girls.

Oh that is hilarious! It also gives me hope since Jayden has had somewhat of a fascination with girly things (I still blame it on Kylie :). I also love the post about Annalise growing up, too cute. And I REALLY hope everyone is feeling better at your house, I still can't believe all the bad luck you guys have had with sickness lately, poor girl!

Lisee looks beautiful and all grown up. I think it is great that she was tired of your whining though, you can use that against later! I hope everyone is feeling better now!!!!!

Thanks for the cute entertainment yesterday at church. Ava looked so cute with her little glasses on and her backpack of toys. I turned to look at my girls and it made me so sad!! Mine look so HUGE and OLD next to yours...it doesn't last long, so take lots of video (I struggle with that one).
