1,000 Pieces Minus One

 We had 2 of our grandchildren over to spend a few days with us this past week. I discovered they love to put together jigsaw puzzles and are so good at it that we need at least a 1,000 piece puzzle for it to be any fun. My husband loves to put puzzles together too. What a pleasant way to spend a cold & rainy weekend ~ hanging out indoors with grandchildren, eating good food, and assembling a cupcake puzzle.

 Most of Saturday & Sunday ( including the evenings ) was spent gathered around the table putting the cupcake puzzle together. No prompting was necessary, these three were drawn to the puzzle like bees to flowers , bears to honey, or kids to cupcakes !


 Almost finished....
 ...but what's this ? There is a piece missing ! Our 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle is only a 999 piece puzzle. How could this be ?
The teeth marks on the scattered puzzle pieces we found Sunday morning gave him away. Wonder where he hid the 1,000th piece .
 
Blessings this past week : playing with grandchildren , a warm home with plenty of food, a husband who loves to play with his grandchildren, a husband who loves me , and most of all ~ a husband who loves God !  ( O.K., a magnificent cat who makes himself known & appreciated even if it means to compete with a puzzle for attention he has to steal a piece. )

What fun for all, and what a hoot about one piece gone missing by a sneaky feline. :-)

Have a lovely week ~ FlowerLady

We love puzzles, too! It's so much fun putting them together :o)
I hope you will find the missing piece soon.... maybe your cat hide it somewhere and keep it for a Christmas present...:o)

Sounds like a lot of fun! I haven't worked a puzzle in a while. I should get one out to work on.

A very pleasant HOME!!!

Puzzles make me very frustrated. I admire those that can put them together.

May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

God bless,
