My Messy Little Artist

My kids went to a camp this summer called Camp Invention. I posted about it then, but they invent things using their imagination, broken appliances and alot of tape. Well, ever since then, Cade has had a fascination with tape. He goes through it by the roll. Masking, Scotch, Duck tape - doesn't matter which kind. The other day, I bought him a roll of masking tape at the store. When I gave it to him, you would have thought he had won the lottery! Talk about easy to please. I know what Santa's going to be putting in his stocking this year!

With all the creativity comes an awful mess. I can't tell you the times I have walked in a room and it is covered with little scraps of paper everywhere. I don't let it bother me much because he is having such a good time. He does have to pick it up later, though. Here are a few of his creations, and one of the aftermath:

For those of you wondering, this is the same child who has had his Christmas list going for at least a month or two. I hadn't seen that list in a while, and was kind of hoping he had lost interest in it, but no worrys, I caught a glimpse of him getting it out from under his bed to add something to it just yesterday. Just great! You should see how much he's written on it. I'm sure we'll be having the "Santa doesn't have enough to give all the kids EVERYTHING they want" talk.

I have a great picture of a portrait of me Cade did out of left over pizza the other night at a restaurant. The problem is that it is on my phone, and I don't know how to get it off! When I figure it out, I'll share it. It is hysterical!

I am finally able to view your new blog, header and all! I disabled some of our parental blocks and it all came up. I don't know what I shut off...hopefully no one can get into anything!

You have a beautiful family~

My oldest made my middle son a batman costume out of tape and paper. If I can find it, I will post it for you.

That cracks me up!! He is so my son it makes me laugh. What is boys and their facination with tape? I swear my son could spend 2 hours with a roll of tape and be completely happy! Totally funny!! Love Cade's wall art and his room looks a lot like 2 boys I like to call my own. Great little artist!!
