The Hijacked Camera

I went to take a picture the other day and there was a problem. The camera told me the memory card was full. I had just cleaned out the vast majority of blog-tography the week before, so you can imagine my befuddlement.

As I began to look through the pictures taken most recently, it became crystal clear what had happened. My camera had been hijacked. By teenage girls.

Mousey, Button and their Willing Friend had themselves a photo shoot.

Something to do with chair dancing, air guitar and exercise.


Nutella. Sponsored food of chair dancers.


Ah, they’ve moved to the basement. More room to sprawl.


And goof.


And mug.


I am not sure of the inspiration here. It seems conflicted.


Here Button reminds me of one of the pictures in Where The Wild Things Are, when the wild rumpus began. It is such a pretty picture of The Willing Friend, and I am quite familiar with Mousey’s open mouth.


If this is a longest tongue contest, Mousey has it in the bag. She has a freakishly long tongue. She is just getting started here. Sorry Willing Friend, you are toast.


Many of the pictures were like this.


This is my favorite one. Perfect timing.


I am going to wager they did not imagine they might end up on The Blob.


That’s our Girl.


Every time I put Madonna away, they find her. Madonna is my beauty school manequin head. She has been much beautified by our children over the years. Quite frankly, I am tired of looking at her. The kids have a strange fixation with her. It’s not right.


Nutella. Breakfast of champions. And air guitarists.


All total, 61 pictures. No wonder the memory card was full.

    That’s so funny. Make sure they know that they were stars on your blob today.

    Did you tell them you were posting the pictures? How funny and how much fun they are having. Reminds me of when I was that age and goofed around with my friends. We felt so free back then-it looks like they did too.

    These pics are AWESOME! Looks like great fun! I wonder though, were they pretty pepped up on Mt Dew?
