Dec. 16, 2009: "Toys" (Games, Puzzles, etc.)

Thursday Challenge is "Toys" - But being that it included "games", I decided to add one of my favorite shots of my daughter's field hockey team's game. This is not a sport for sissies. Take a look not only where the shot is going (knee), but where the stick will hit (arm), which luckily neither were hurt badly. My daughter has taken it in the ankle bone, the neck and jaw, and this last month two in one week took it in the head. One girl with 6 stitches and one with 40! I say, they look great in their skirts, but don't let the skirts fool you, they're tough!

On a "softer" note:

Every extended vacation we always set up a 1500+ puzzle on a table. It becomes the table magnet and challenge for everyone. I have always loved puzzles and I am finding more adults do than kids. My kids get too bored. Their favorite game is "spoons." A faster game and makes them laugh so hard it becomes contagious. What is your favorite game or toy? To see more check out Thursday Challenge,


  1. Love the puzzle photo. Keen.

    Yes, I could never play that competitive field hockey! Such expression.

  2. I know, it is scary. I used to play roller hockey. Loved that I was totally padded up! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Wow! Those girls look pretty tough! And, the puzzle doesn't look too easy either...all those light pieces could be a hair pulling experience! Fabulous captures of both photos! I really like the compositions.
