zird is the word [userpic]
Last weekend I thought I would have time to take some picture requests, but only kejn and my mom asked for anything, and kejn's was IMPOSSIBLE OH MY GOD, DO NOTHING? FOR NO ONE? SIT STILL??? *blank look* HUH?? Time conspired against me that day somehow and I never ended up getting around to taking any photos, and then First Crazy Week of Fall One began and all thoughts of photo shoots flew from my mind.

However, I had told Martin and Karin about the photo request that their grandma had made and then we came up with a great idea and today we put it into action. Lizardmom requested the following photos...she wanted to see her grandkids:
  • wearing a favorite item
  • doing something they really like to do
  • doings something they really hate to do
  • showing off something they made
  • a photo they think you'd really like to see
And so, without further ado, I give you

Martin is wearing the scarf his Aunt Sarah knitted for him and Karin has on her motorcycle helmet. Martin is reading and Karin is playing with a lightsaber for the things they really like to do, and I think you can figure out for yourselves what it is that they really HATE to do. And finally, the Lego town in the foreground of the photo is something that they made that they want to show off. Ta-dah! There you go, Grandma! :D
mood: silly
music: MotoGP motorcycle racing on TV


Oi, that's great!


That is a great Picture!!!! What a hoot. I especially love that he likes his scarf! :) And Karin in her motorcycle helmet!!

Love to all Aunt Sarah.

That's priceless! :-)

I'm with Karin, mopping carpets is the pits! hehehe

hahha! I thought she had the mop on the floor and then laughed my head off when I saw after I took the picture that it was actually on the carpet. :P

All rolled into one. Cute.

Classic! Well done!

It's a good thing they went with reading and the light saber. It would have been very difficult to work the vacuum/mop into the trampoline...

LOL! Very true.

Unrelated: have you read In the Woods by Tana French? Nancy Pearl recommended it on an NPR interview, and although I usually don't like mysteries, I really enjoyed this one. Excellent narrative style, complex but identifiable characters, no unpredictable plot twist, just the accumulation of clues. (I had it figured out but wasn't sure and had a backup theory based on some red herrings.)

Nope, haven't read it. I rarely read murder mysteries or crime novels at all.

Multitasking, they are their mother's children. Hysterical pic and I love how clean the house looks. :-D

ha! Multitasking, indeed! I didn't even THINK of that, or that's what I would have titled the post! Duh.



HAHAHA! I love clever kids! Thanks for the laughs. Although my stupid computer quit showing the photo at their knees,,,,I tried refreshing and doing again & again, but no more of the view. So thanks to the explanations I got the idea- but I would really love to see the lego town!
Love, Lizardmom


now THAT is getting it all done in one go--- kudos to clan Ek!!!



What a wonderful idea to make photo requests! Awesome, awesome photo. So good to be back in the land of lizardek and blogs after such a long absence (what felt like a while to me anyways) but stepping away from the computer during my mom's visit was well worth it. Thank you for continuing to read my blog even though I wasn't popping in very often.


You were missed. :) I'm so glad you had such a great visit with your mom!

Delicious Lizard children!

And not to be picky or anything, but I asked for a photo and you have now dissed me completely.

I did? No, I didn't. Did I? No way. *runs off to look*

OMG I did!! I got all distracted by the sushi conversation and the excitement of possibly getting to eat dinner with you.
