Thanksgiving Puzzle

I'm not sure when this Thanksgiving tradition began, but I dearly missed it during the years when I had two small children and it was merely impossible to keep an eye on them and keep them out of the pieces.  Now, I have a partner in crime, since Sean loves to do puzzles.  He helps during two phases: the first step of locating the end pieces and the final step when there are fewer pieces missing. Still, it is great fun and a wonderful Thanksgiving tradition. So, here is this year's puzzle:

It was easy in some ways, because there were plenty of different details to find and match. It was also hard in some ways, because the picture on the cover of the box only included the central portion of the puzzle. Many of the edge areas were a mystery.

Do you have a special tradition for Thanksgiving weekend?

Thanks for the welcome to the blogging world! I'm a little nervous about it, but I do love to write. I'm sure I'll have fun along the way. :)

I love that puzzle!

My mom (and the rest of my family) visited for two weeks around Thanksgiving and she put together something like 10 puzzles. Ok, she had some help on all of them but still. It was pretty much nonstop puzzling around here for 10 days, until she confessed she was "puzzled out."

Laurie - blogging is fun and a great outlet for writing. Enjoy!

Sheila - Ten puzzles! Wow, I'm impressed. That's a lot. I'd be puzzled out, too.
