Sentimental Memories

My Dad made this wooden nativity puzzle when I was young, and I remember playing with it every Christmas. After my sisters and I moved out of the house and had children of our own (well, we're still waiting (and waiting, and waiting...) for Shannon to decide that kids would make her life complete), Dad made copies for the grandchildren. It brings me great joy to see my boys playing with this nativity. Luke is an expert at putting the puzzle together.

That is so cool! Did he design it?

Okay, now that is really interesting! My dad made the same one. (there must have been a pattern in a book or something?) I grew up playing with it and getting pretty good at putting the puzzle together. I should ask him or Tim to make one for us!

I think he found the pattern somewhere. I'll have to ask him and see if he remembers.
Carole ~ I can't believe your dad made the same one! That's incredible. You *should* have one made for the boys. That would be so fun. :)
