Joshua's First Claymation

Here is Joshua's first claymation video.  It took him about 40 minutes and 66 frames.  This is his second stop-motion animation.  The first involved a Lego policeman, my camera, a couple hours worth of work, and a slideshow.  His second claymation took 90 minutes and over a hundred frames and is still in need of some editing (says Josh) :)

A gorgeous month it was, full of sunny days and blue skies and just enough rain.

We had a friendly visitor one day.  Quite tame he seemed, inclined to hang around the part of the yard where the people were.  Mama kitty encouraged him to move on immediately though.

Silly Gus likes to chew on sticks

Is it a little brother or a pack mule?  Has he volunteered for this job, can you tell?  ;)

One day Mom had a great idea!  Let's pop outside and grab a cute picture or ten and we'll send photo cards for Christmas this year.  I always think about doing it and never get around to it...

Let's get a nice picture or two for the card, k guys?

"Let's pose for a picture, she said,  It'll be fun, she said. . ."

Well. . . THEY'RE having fun ;)
