Pieces,pieces and more pieces...

The Deacon and Pops gave Cameron some really great puzzles for Christmas. These are a 3-D puzzle that he can paint. I am not sure who had more fun, Cameron or Mr. Miller.

True to form for my sweet husband, we have to lay everything out and explain what we are going to do. This actually works great for Cameron. Visual planning is an excellent way for us to explain a process. His little mind goes so fast that sometimes just stating this is what we are doing now, next and then.

Coffee, always an important factor in any home project.

Cameron reads the directions to Daddy. This is always a very entertaining experience.

We have a helicopter and now its time for the train! We have really tried to start having more creative time and less TV time. Cameron reacts so well to being creative, we find we have a much smoother day if we can let his creative juices flow.


  1. How fun! My oldest received a model airplane kit for Christmas and had such a good time putting it together!

  2. I'm glad you had fun with this project....And in the end, success!

  3. I totally agree with you on more creative and less TV time. We're always trying to find interesting things to keep our 3 year old entertained that doesn't involve TV watching! Oh... and that puzzle looks fantastic. Great job!

  4. what a wonderful his hands on his hips. we love puzzles...those look really fun.
