Not the things you do at Christmas time, but the Christmas things you do all year through, including Christmas time.

We have some little three-dimensional foam puzzle cubes called Happy Cubes that we bought on our Europe trip (four years ago) to help keep the kids entertained.   I remember, back on our trip, spending a lot of time figuring out all the cubes, and finally solving them.  Henry is lately a great fan of puzzles, and he can put all the pieces in place on our big wooden United States puzzle without help, but the cubes are a bit beyond him.  Still, he’s fascinated, so as a gift to him I’ve just been sitting here trying vainly to get the purple puzzle together.  I started thinking maybe he had picked the hardest one, and sure enough he had:

I think the above image also shows the solution, though, so I need to have him bring that puzzle back.  (He gave up on me and took the pieces back.)

Yup, that did the trick.  Merry Christmas Henry!  With love from Mommy.
