Let's Mingle and Play Today!

First off, I have to apologize to all of you party guests. I have been super-duper busy on an order for some bags and stuff and have not been a very good hostess the last few days. I am almost done though. I feel like I've been the hostess who is stuck in the kitchen preparing things and not out enjoying the party. I will be visiting every one's blog, hopefully tonight, and answering all my emails.

Okay, I want to Thank everyone who answered the questions and now you guys can all mingle. I received messages from Beth, Kathy, Victoria, Susan (Suzie Button), Dianne, Jessica, and Susan (SusanShoe's). Cathy, Dawn, Twyla will be answering hers tomorrow because today is her daughter Lindsey's Wednesday Barbie posting. If I missed anyone please email me or leave me a comment and let me know and I'll make the correction.

Most of you got yesterdays pictures right. The one face said Liar. Once you see it, thats all you see! The other picture has 3 faces, a father, mother and daughter. So today I have some word games and a puzzle. Have fun playing and I have to get back to sewing, but I'll be back to the party hopefullly by tonight!!

PARK/PARK answer: double parked

HEAVEN answer: pennies from heaven

CHECK answer: triple checked

I am so awful at these. I could only get Shrinking Violets and Double Park. I always over rationalize what I am doing...oh the shame!

Hah!! Sherryu, after a bit of amiable nagging from my pal Barbara, I have joined in... and posted about this on my blog. You may well laugh, but I didn't get all the answers right. However, I did complete the jigsaw (in my caffeine-deprived state) in just over 5 minutes!! This IS fun!!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
