Christmas Kisses

I always take a bunch of pics over Christmas and i always have the best intention when i think that I'm going to scrap all of them... So i decided that at least a few more pics from 2010 X.mas will be scrapped the next couple of days. I even did some handwriting on this one as well, the journaling journey continues.
I love papers that you can cut out details from and mix them together to make it your own, on this one lots of Websters papers got butchered ;) Its something so calming almost like meditation when you sit there with the siccors in your hand cutting out details.. I don't mind that it is a bit time consuming I'm just enjoying it, which is your favorite technique at the moment? 
The story about this pic is a bit fun and i hope little miss thing will laugh about it when she is older to..
What may look all cuddly and cute on the pic was not so easy to achieve irl..
My Christmas cards where all ready and we just had to take the pic that was going to be in them, the weather had been so grey the last couple of days so it had been impossible to take pics inside.
Well i couldn't wait any longer, the cards needed to get in the mailbox so one day after a Christmas celebration at little miss things pree school i decided that it ok we have Christmas outfits on so lets go!!
If you have kids you know how collaborating they can be after a long day at pree school followed by a party...
I had an idea that it would look so cute if we could get it on a pic when she kisses the belly, she usually do this every time she says good bye or good night..
The hubby who also was a bit tired got the camera around his neck not knowing really on how to work the camera which resulted in a stressed out and annoyed pregnant me.. This of course reflected on little miss thing as well who just stood there with here arms crossed over her chest saying nooooooooooooooooooo pics!!!! I'm tired..
Meanwhile i tried explaining some settings on the camera for the hubby, little miss thing hid under the table.
It ended up with me bribing the poor girl with some cookies and some hot chocolate.. For ONE kiss.
It was the fastest kiss ever i tell you! And at the end i didn't care if it was a good pic, just that there actually was A pic... 
So here it is the reluctant Christmas kiss
Wishing you all a great weekend
