Clay Creations

Here are the effects of the happy combination of a boy, some clay, and lots and lots of time...

Boy is very fond of clay.  And he gets quite creative.  A sporty winter snowman...

complete with baby snowman...

I really look up to you, dad.

A funky snowman from the 70's.  (Also with matching baby.)

Caterpillars and ice cream cones.

And a bunch of other stuff.  Notice how each of his creations has a miniature that looks just like it.  The miniatures were given as a gift to his little sister, Sweetpea.  He was horrified when he found her actually playing with them!!!  They are masterpieces after all.  And you don't play with masterpieces.

The following is not for the faint of heart.  Please note that semi graphic images follow.  (giggle giggle)

He wouldn't be Boy if he didn't make something like this dinosaur eating another dinosaur.  Notice the clay footprints that will someday (in millions of years) become fossils.

I can't help but feel bad for the little dino who is laying partly laying on the ground and partly in the jaws of our T-rex friend.  I suppose that is the way it happened though.

On that note...  I hope you all have a wonderful Monday.  We are supposed to get lots and lots of snow over the next few days.  We'll see how it all turns out.
