Monday Mugs - Blue

Are you in need of a mindless Monday Blog post? Are you struggling to deal with the weekend being over and can't muster the strength to type a single word? Well, Monday Mugs is for YOU! I may or may not "borrow" ideas from IheartFaces and post my interpretation of their weekly theme. Without submitting my photo for judgement and not being forced to follow the rules.

Mondays are hard! Blogging on Mondays shouldn't be!

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Blue
My BLUE is mixed with a bit of Red and White!

One of my favorite 4th of July traditions, is to make my kids wear festive clothes and force them to let me take their pictures.
They LOVE it, as seen in the following picture:

I did manage to get a few smiles out of them.

Lily even wore the outfit and combed her hair the way I demanded asked her to!

Miss Smiley Pants was in rare form! I never thought she'd keep the little headband on! And I usually can't get her to sit still for 5 seconds so I can get one shot. Today, she sat down on the little stool and was content to sit and smile while I shot about 20 pictures of her. She got very mad when I asked her to get up so someone else could get their pictures taken!

I even got a shot of all 4 of them together and they're all looking in the generel direction of the camera!

Lily looks adorable with her hair like that. Don't tell her I said that though, she may never wear it that way again.

And Daisy- way to go big girl!

Oh how lucky are you! And what cute cute pictures. Maybe I will have to go by the 4th of July shirts now that they are dirt cheap and do the same :)

Such cute pictures

Sorry, I don't know if that's Ashton or Bailey with the flags, but OMG...HILARIOUS!!!

And, OMGoodness!!! Look at Miss Daisy and all those smiles! W.O.W!!!

I love the group shot. It's so hard to get a good one, so you really have reason to celebrate when you do! Great pics! :)

You've got a beautiful family; don't despair that they all have strong wills! My head strong teen now uses her will against tons of peer pressure. They'll need it later on. You have a way of making me smile every time I visit.
