Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Every once in awhile, your child makes something so special that you know you will cherish it forever. Thomas did just that recently.

Three weeks ago I dropped Thomas off at his ceramics class and the instructor had this big white turkey sitting on display. I begged Thomas to do this project for me. He happily agreed. It took him three weeks because it was detailed and big, but it is the best piece he has made to date.

The pictures do not come close to what it looks like in person. I tried adjusting the flash, but that still doesn't work. The red head looks very funky and cartoonish in the photos, but in real life it is stunning. Bob warned me that it would not photograph well. Of course he was right.

I am so proud. This lovely turkey will be the perfect centerpiece for all our Thanksgivings to come.

Thank you so much, Thomas.

please ignore the dirty kitchen table!!!

Wow! That's really lovely.

Won't it be fun to show it off to your grandkids when they come over for Thanksgiving? :-)

You won't put that away as soon as T-giving is over, will you?

Fabulous job, Thomas!

And that will be an heirloom for sure.

You need to make a tiny Santa hat for it to keep it around for next month : )
