It's not often one gets to write "handmade" and "lego" and "drug cartel" in the same blog heading. Stick with me here and I'll explain.
First off, I just wanted to share a few of the lovely handmade gifts my family participated in making this Christmas. Beeper made a couple of bookmark designs (above) which we then had printed at Overnight Prints for the ridiculously low price of $4.95 for 25 (I highly recommend this--the results were good, although the delivery of the goods took much longer than the website led us to believe it would). He then also designed his own mix CD of his favorite songs (also above), and created a cover for it (which I then scanned and printed copies of). He gave the bookmarks to all of his kindergarten classmates, his afterschool program teachers and family and friends. The CD was a special gift just for his very best friends.
And then Mr Beeper constructed this beautiful Lego table for Beeper. It is actually a tray that is backed with felt so it can sit on any surface and is easily moveable. I was impressed with the results of this (the man rocks my world).
So, naturally, Beeper has been doing a lot of building with Legos since Christmas--including this building that he has been working on for some time. He has been slowly adding to it over the past couple of week--an escape ladder to the roof, a safe for valuables hidden inside (not pictured), bars on the windows, helicopter landing pad on the roof, and tricked out SUV parked in the yard. Hmmm...then one day I started to look more closely at this little "house" and its inhabitants--look for yourself...
And this was when I realized that Beeper was a contractor for the Mexican Drug Cartel. I mean, look at them! Isn't it clear? Doesn't it all make sense? The safe? The bars on the windows? The escape ladder to the helicopter on the roof? Plus, look at that one in the orange jumpsuit--and the other still wearing his prison garb...shocking, I tell you.
