My Favorite Christmas Tradition

After a successful long run last Saturday, Josh and I spent the rest of the day doing one of our favorite Christmas traditions:

A puzzle! 
Yes, we are an old married couple who love puzzles! 

We love puzzles so much that we even completed one on our honeymoon. Seriously, Josh and I were made for each other!

We set up the kitchen/living room so we could spend all day working the puzzle and watch marathon episodes of Dexter. Such an amazingly perfect weekend!
We have very different strategies for completing puzzles. I like to work the edges first and Josh likes to tackle an object in the middle. Since I work the puzzles outside-in, and he works them inside-out, we rarely get in each other's way.

We dominated you Santa!

What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?


  1. Puzzles?? Too funny! Hoping you guys have a Mery Christmas!

  2. I love puzzles too!! Now I know who to call when I get the urge to play! We aren't nearly as creative--we watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation and make home made Christmas cookies every year!

  3. We have always done Christmas puzzles growing up! When I started college the tradition was even sweeter because we would start it the night I got back from school and work on it throughout the three week break. (I have a 9 year old brother who was 4 at the time... and there was no chance he was going to sit still!) So fun!
