Mommy and Me Monday- The 47th- By the Fire


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

You’d think I would be better about it, but sometimes it gets to Sunday and I realize "ack, I don’t have a picture for this week."

We had a very nice fire today, and much needed as I think it’s been below freezing all day.  I guess you can’t see it in the picture.  (Incidentally, why is firewood so expensive?)

Mr. Serious was being super silly when taking the picture, something about "say cookies" which we do instead of "say cheese" but we all got the giggles.  With this eating healthy and having proper servings sizes, I sure which I had a cookie right about now!

Mommy and Me Monday: By the fire

Happy Monday!  School/work is canceled tomorrow because of bad weather.  Here’s hoping it’s not as bad as predicted.  While the last years’ snow day was good and all, we’ve been cooped up in the house long enough.

Mommy and Me Monday at  Really, Are You Serious?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

Make sure you head over and check out all of the other Mommy and Me Monday posts and leave them some comment love.  It makes me sad to go to posts at the end of the day and only see one comment.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

  1. Such a fun pic! I’m going to make an effort to participate in this more this year- I had to find 3 pics of myself for something recently and it was sad how far back I had to go to find pics of me!

    1. Thanks. And, yes you should participate. It forces me to at least get one picture a week! Even if it isn’t the best.

  3. Oooohhhh, love the fire! I am jealous. Enjoy a day at home with the family tomorrow! Have you started a new ‘diet’ with the proper portions and no cookies. I started one two days before New Years’ and then went off of it on New Year’s! 🙂

    1. Yes. That’s the idea…and exercising again, too. Here’s hoping it works. I’ve got about 15 lbs to lose. Ack. That’s a lot, but it’s the truth.

  4. This is such a good picture of all 3 of you!! I love how it just totally captures the silliness and fun of the moment! Glad you guys are staying warm! 😀

  5. My husband does that too. Tries to make us laugh which makes the girls get all excited and not look at the camera! Daddy’s, right? 🙂 Great picture! It has been SOOO cold here too!

  6. I have to say some winter weather sounds lovely about now…and a fireplace even more so! I hope it is the enjoyable kind for you without the hasstle!

    1. Well, it’s a good thing we went to the grocery store this weekend. Although, if it keeps up, we will run out of milk!

  7. Love the “say cookies” smiles!

    I need to get back to having pics of me and the kids taken together. We did a few at Christmas but we need more!

  8. Awe! This is just adorable. Look at those smiles. 🙂 Good to be back!

  9. I love the picture…pictures are always great with daddy-induced giggles.
    Thanks for hosting! I often forget to take my picture as well (like today…d’oh!). Enjoy your snow day together!

  10. We woke up to 7 inches and I hear you guys have four or so and now ice on top! Yay. Fun in the south:)

    1. Yes, the ice is definitely horrible. It’s like an inch on top of the snow.

  11. What a fun pic. Looks like big sis was shy to look on the camera.

    1. Nah…she’s not shy on the camera…she was just being really silly.

  12. It must be nice to have snow days because we have NONE here! I hope it’s not as bad as they say it will be though! I’ll be praying for that 🙂 Love this picture of y’all! Your eyes just GLOW!!

    Love, Mere

    1. Oh, it’s pretty bad. We’re on day 2 now, and it’s supposed to get just hot enough to melt some before it drops to the teens tonight. I’m predicting at least a day 3!

  13. This is a great picture of you and your girls. I always wish that I can have more pictures with them. And since I am the one who takes the picture, it’s rare that we can all be together in a photo. We don’t use our fireplace either, just for display, 🙂

    1. Glad you were able to get in the picture.

      You should use it. We are so happy to have makes the house a lot warmer.

  14. I love how happy your girls look! Sooo sweet! Your girls are going to cherish these pictures when they grow up!

  15. Sweet photo of you and your girls. Laughter is the best medicine! Happy Monday!

  16. love the cheesy giggles and smiles 🙂

    and yay for snow days 🙂

  17. What a great photograph… I love Isabelle’s face. There is nothing in the world greater than the laughter of a child and I can almost hear it through the photo.
    You and your girls are so beautiful and I love seeing your faces each week.
