Monday Mugs - Trick or Treat


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! Because on Mondays, I need some motivation, I may or may not "borrow" ideas from IheartFaces and post my interpretation of their weekly theme.

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

Today's theme for Monday Mugs is: Trick or Treat
_______________________________

Well, I had grand plans of having a complete dress rehearsal yesterday so I could have pictures for today's post. BUT, I'm pretty sure Daisy is only going to let me put curlers in her once so I better save it for the actual trick-or-treating. I also had a Puking Cutie yesterday. I'm not sure how my kids manage to get sick at the most inopportune times! I did get some pictures of Bailey on Saturday, before he got sick and Ashton was kind enough to dress-up for me on Sunday so I wouldn't be completely empty handed today.

I tried to talk all the older kids in to having coordinating costumes that would match Daisy's, but no one was very excited about coordinating with a butterfly! LOL

The theme for next week's Monday Mugs will be: Thankful: Week 1
I am going to do something a bit different for
November and each week I will post something
I am thankful for. Hopefully with a picture to go with it.





*Angi - The pictures in your post last week were amazing! Isn't picnik great? Also, I wanted to let you know that I did try the suggestion you gave me last week to make it easier for me comment on your blog. It was a while back, and it did make it so I could comment, but not long after I changed it, we got 2 viruses and complete meltdown of our computer. I have no idea if the 'fix' had anything to do with it, but I am afraid to change it. I'll keep trying! :)

Shutterfly Christmas Cards

I know I know! It's not even Halloween yet. And there's definitely NO forgetting Thanksgiving. But there is a lot of planning and scheming that must go on to make sure the Christmas Cards are printed and ready to go so recipients may enjoy them for as long as possible in December.

I am just starting to think about our coordinating outfits. And scouting out possible photoshoot locations. And I've started bribing threatening preparing the family for our annual photo.

I've already started browsing the card section at Shutterfly too. With so many cards to choose from, it is going to take me a while.

Should we go Christmas-y? With a space for a family shot and individual shots of each kid?

Or maybe just one family photo with this awesome card? Feast your eyes on Shutterfly's Christmas Cards.

Or maybe I should try to cover the entire "Holiday" season? Go see Shutterfly's Holiday Cards.

I think I like this one!

Another project I need to get started on is 2012 Calendars, starring The Cuties! The Grandparents expect this every year! I think I like this "Happy Days" design. Check out Shutterfly's Calendars.



I have purchased pictures, calendars, notebooks, photobooks, etc. from Shutterfly and I have always been happy with the quality and customer service. Remember our little getaway to Salt Lake last summer? The one where I took over 600 pictures? Well, I made Shutterfly photobooks for my Mom and my Grandma with those photos and they absolutely LOVE THEM!  I am currently working on my book from that trip which includes almost 60 pages of pictures and journaling. I know it is going to be something that my kids will enjoy and cherish in the future. If you would like to see MY photo book, go here.


Would you like 25 Free Cards from Shutterfly? I will give promotion codes to the first 3 comments that say "I want me some Shutterfly cards".

-or-

*Angi @ Messy Cars and Muddy Shoes* I am still stopping by and visiting your blog! Still not able to comment!! Thanks so much for linking up last week. Amazing Fall Photos! And to answer your question: I edit my photos at picnik dot com. They have a "vibrant" button that brightens up my photos and helps our faded laundry look much better! LOL (just so you know, I didn't edit ANY of today's photos)
I'll keep trying Angi!

The kiddos go back to school today :(   But while they were on Break, we got to escape to the North, again, and experience Fall! Cooler temperatures and changing leaves.
We had way too much fun. AGAIN!
