Saturday Synapse Challenge

Some love a parade; but seriously, I love a meme.

For anyone who feels awkward tagging, for fear they'll be met with less-than-enthusiastic response, put me on your "stand-by" list. The lovely Goddess of Goddess in Progress and BoufMom of Who Says 8 is Enough? tagged me with this marvelously memory-jogging meme:

The instructions are these:
* Go to your Sixth Picture Folder then pick your Sixth Picture.
* Pray that you remember the details.
* Tag 5 others.

Here goes...
Much like those art history tests of yore, wherein you could identify the saint depicted via the attributes with which he/she was portrayed, so too the helpful hints here! (Whew!)

Darren is holding his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure and Sarah is holding the "Breezies" -- tiny, antenna-ed, fairy-like versions of My Little Pony. The occasion was the morning of their 5th birthday, and they decided to open their presents from each other first. (It was their first attempt at selecting a gift for their sibling on their own...they both did very well.)

[For those with eagle eyes, do note the Backyardigans Pablo and Uniqua seemingly in flagrante delicto in the green armchair.]

Tag! You're It!

Thanks for the tag...I needed a little nudge to get back to blogging! I've been a little lazy!

What a cute picture. I love that they picked out a gift that each other liked. I think my girls would pick something for their sister that they secretly hoped they could borrow!

I love memes. They are especially wonderful when I can't think of anything to blog about. Which is often :-) But, I am the queen of procrastination. And it might take me a few months to get to it. I had my readers ask me questions several weeks ago for me to use for a future post. The future hasn't quite happened yet.

Oh, and I am thrilled that you are stalking me now. Doesn't everyone need a stalker? Or twenty? But, I am curious to know the path that led you to my little corner of the internet...

Darling photo!

Laura said...

I am so relieved that this isn't the "show the insides of you purse and bookbag" etc.
Oh. I would have totally cheated...me? clementine peels in my purse?
So this? No problem.
This is actually a double tag...zimmerzoo may have tagged me as well so I can't slither out of it.
It shall be done.

I love that you let them pick something out for eachother- that is really special :)

My duo is into "no, mine" phase at the moment so we are still doling out presents in 2s to avoid tantrums.

Gibson Twins said...

Okay okay I tagged you for a meme on my blog!

That's hilarious! Good thing you remembered the details of this photo; I probably would not have.
