It's not wise to mess with the Thunder Bunny™, for she is fierce!

So now I'm in crunch time with the pinata. The bottom two chambers are drying overnight and tomorrow I'll fill them and seal them up and then seal up most of the next two chambers. I've decided the party poppers (shaped like a bottle with a string you pull and they 'splode) and the bubba teeth and the best candy will go in the turret. I've still gotta get pixie sticks for the gun. Painting this one is going to be fun.

A few weeks ago, the boy's best friend gave him an old knife of his, a worn out imitation of a swiss army knife with a blade too dull to spread peanut butter with. Anyway, Sis told the friend "his birthday is coming up, so you may want to keep your knife because someone might get him a knife for his birthday."
Nephew didn't say anything then, but a couple days ago, he asked my sis "So, who's giving me a knife?" She asked what he was talking about and he said "you said I might get a knife, so I must be getting a knife for my birthday. Who's giving me the knife?"

Smarty britches. Reminds me of myself.

This is gonna be so much fun. I'll try and post more pics tomorrow, and of course I'll show the completed (and demolished) pinata Sunday or Monday.

Loved the fearless bunny!

Can't wait to see the tank in all it's glory.

Little nephew caught on, did he, LOL

Thought the bunny was great - reminded me of the killer rabbit in Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

I will look back in to see the completed tank.

lainy - I thought it was so cute - she must have had a nest of little ones nearby. Badass! Yeah, the tank is coming along nicely. I had a marathon paper-pasting session last night and it's looking more tank-like all the time!

Yup, we don't slip much past that one - he's the analytical type.

dba dude - Ya gotta love something that's a combination of fluffy and ferocious. I do! Yeah, I'll be thrilled to post the pics - it's gonna rock!

schnoobie - Yup, he is!
Yeah, it's going to be fun to watch it get smashed!

Yoiks, Sunday and pinata show-down time isn't far off! Bet you work well under pressure and deadlines though. You're going to blow 'em away - it looks GREAT so far!
