Monday Mugs - Black and White

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 withoutt being forced to follow the rules.

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

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Black and White
About 9 years ago we bought Lily a special
outfit to wear on Thanksgiving.
There is an infamous story about that day here.
Thanksgiving 2001
Lily - 20 months

All of Lily's pics had to be scanned
which led to not-so-decent quality.
Dang my foolishness for putting her up against such a
dark background! It makes it very difficult to
see just how much hair she had.

This year it was Daisy's turn to wear
the darling outfit for Turkey Day!
Thanksgiving 2010
Daisy - 28 months

Please excuse me! Daisy had too many 'success stories' while I was
collecting evidence of my girlies wearing the same outfit!

Oh yea, that's right I am linking up again.... FINALLY!!!!

I am in love with your post. Those are such cute pictures! They both look super cute in that outfit! Poor Daisey just doesn't have the hair that Lily had. Don't worry, it will grow in soon!!! I think the finger in the nose picture is a senior yearbook one FOR SURE!!!! LOL

Oh my goodness, Daisy is just too precious in these pictures! I especially love the finger in the nose shot. She had to get her true self in there somewhere.

I love the outfit too, will you put side by side shots in a frame of the girls?

Angie Vik said...

How fun that both girls could wear the same outfit. I always hated when one of my kids outgrew a favorite outfit and was thankful if the next child could also wear it. Daisy looks like a baby model in the first picture. Looks like she cooperates better with picture taking than she used to.

Shana said...

I love them all but you know me. I am a sucker for finger in the nose pics! Can't wait to join back in for the Monday Mugs meme.

Emmy said...

Great shots! But the finger up the nose is priceless!

Kim said...

So neat that you can pass on Lily's outfits. I bet it brings back a lot of memories. They both look great in it, I can't believe the difference in the amount of hair though. Lily has so much and Miss Daisy barely had any. I was a lot like Daisy.

I will be linking up in the morning!

Rachel said...

I love these photos!!! And I remember the original story (cuz it was a True Story Tuesday one! :)

I'm with your other buddies - the finger-in-the-nose shot takes the cake! :)

Love it!

Nati @ I will praise Him said...

How adorable!!! Both the Outfit and the Girls!!!!!!

Kmama said...

I love Julie's suggestion to put side-by-side pics of the girls together.

LOL at the finger in the nose. Such a great personality already!! ;-)

Michelle Pixie said...

I LOVE thes pictures!! So adorable and now I can't wait to go read about the debut of the outfit. ;-)

Rachel said...

YAY! You're doing a giveaway! That must mean that you've been holding out on us and not starting that Etsy shop, huh?

Does this count as a nice comment? Cuz I'm still giggling over your Thanksgiving outfit story :)

Brandi said...

Was that the diaper bag incident? I remember a very funny story that had something to do with no diapers or wipes? ;)

Love that little outfit! And, Daisy looks awfully cute in it (even with her finger in her the nose). :)

Stopping by from Shana's. I love the banner but even more, I love the idea that you are making them yourself and starting your own business because of it. I wish I was crafty enough to do something like that.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

That is a super cute outfit! Both girls looked adorable in it!

He & Me + 3 said...

My actress had a sweater just like that. So cute. Love the nose picking picture. So funny. Sweet headband too.

Jodee Leader said...

Love, love, love these pictures -- especially the nose picking one!

I am working on my button now. I will let you know if I need help. Thanks again! You rock!
