Monday Mugs - Celebrate

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 without being forced to follow the rules.

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

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Celebrate
Forgive the delay. This is how we celebrated July 4th, 2011

It started with the annual torture session photo shoot, in
'holiday appropriate' attire.




Group shots are always so much fun!


Bailey was not in the mood for photos and he DID NOT smile until Daisy said she wouldn't take any more pictures unless Bailey held her hand. Awwwwwwwwwww

For their special celebration dinner, the
kids had ribs and corn on the cob.


The boys were not allowed to wear their white shirts to the table!


I tried to take pictures of the kids with their sparklers. I need a little more practice. Can you see Bailey running at warp speed behind Lily? LOL




And every year, my favorite part is watching fireworks through our bedroom window! I was too busy enjoying to take any pictures.

Next week, Monday Mugs is going to take a little break because
3/4 of The Cuties are going BACK TO SCHOOL!! :(
We'll be busy buying school supplies, preparing 1st Day of School outfits and attending Meet the Teacher Night.
When do your kids go back?
Monday Mugs will be back August 1st
and the theme will be: Shades

Daisy looks like such a big girl! I love the dinner looks super yummy! Glad you guys had a good 4th of July!

Daisy is such a mix (look-wise) of all your kids. It's fun to see them all together in group shots.

Back to school already? I can't even imagine. We have until September 7!

Brandi said...

HA! You just reminded me I have 4th pics on my camera that I never downloaded to the computer. Have fun getting the cuties ready for school! :)

Love the group shot with hand hooding going on .. Dinner looks delish and is that really Bailey making the contrail in your back yard? Looove!

Tiffany said...

GAAH! Back to school already? That is terrifying!

I love the group shots - so happy to know my kids arent the only ones!

Kim said...

What fun pictures! You know how to celebrate, the ribs and corn look awesome.

Can't believe school starts so soon. We have 4 more weeks. Altough Alyssa told me she was ready to go back today!

Emily, Jerimy and River said...

Love love love the 4th of July pics. I'm behind in my posts....still working on June!

Rachel said...

Umm, schoooool???? Didn't we just get out?

I mean, it's still raining here, so we haven't officially had summer yet. School doesn't start till September round these parts :)

Heartwarming that Daisy wanted to hold his hand... and he doesn't look too bummed about it either!

Emmy said...

Okay is it just me or does Daisy suddenly look a lot older! Probably not what you want to hear as our babies grow up too fast.

School already?? We start August 8th and I thought that was early!

Your kids always look so clean and cute and put-together. You get extra points for the patriotic outfits and 4th of July food. I can't let my kids read your blog or they'll wonder why their Mom doesn't do such fun things.

They look so cute in their 4th of July outfits!
