A feeling of accomplishment!

For his 5th Birthday, Gabriel received a Cars puzzle book from one of our friends. He ate it up! He wanted to do those puzzles all hours of the day.

Soon he tackled 25 pieces, then we bought him a 48 piece puzzle. He figured them out within hours!
We were at Target and saw a 100 piece puzzle and thought "Maybe...just maybe." He picked out the puzzle he wanted. We got home and Matt helped him the first time. Gabriel actually figured it out really fast! He was pacing along with Matt.

Today he completed that 100 piece puzzle ALL by himself! It took him 2 hours to accomplish (it would have taken less time, if Brooke didn't keep pestering him).
He was so proud of himself and his accomplishment!
I must say, I'm extremely proud of him, too! It makes me cringe just looking at that puzzle (I'm not a puzzle person).

Soon, maybe sooner than we think, he will work up to 1,000 piece puzzles! For that, Matt will have fun helping out!

Love finding childhood stuff! I grew up on this stuff! You may say "but isn't that marshmallow cream?" NO!! It tastes so much better! Maybe because it's nostalgic, but it definitely tastes much different then your ordinary marshmallow cream.

What I love is making a fluffer nutter! Peanut Butter + Fluff = yummy!

If you haven't tried it, I suggest you go out to your store now and get some fluff and make yourself a yummy, sugary fluffer nutter! Your kids will LOVE it :o)

The kids and I wanted to take pictures (more so me then them). Gabriel and Brooke helped take some pictures though, and it all turned out wonderfully! It's always fun to see how pictures turn out when kids take them. With the help of some editing, it looks professional ;o)
