Monday snap and a bunch of crap...
I spent the afternoon with this child last week and we did grandma/grandgirl types of things. We made Christmas cookies and decorated the tree (with fairie wings), we watched an episode of Dora and then ordered a pizza! After that we ate a cookie, just one. We had such a sweet time together and I really wanted to capture the moment but this child will not let you take her picture. If she sees the camera out she will look away from you, stop talking and pretty much ignores you. Then if you can get a picture of her it is always fuzzy because she is two and never stops moving! I don't know if it's me or the camera or just what the trick is to taking a photo of someone who is in constant motion! I took 56 pictures that afternoon and this is the only one that is semi-clear. I had to crop everything else out to bring her closer...notice the grumpy face.
When I was growing up *crap* was considered swearing so it was never heard/spoken in our home. When I met my husband, to-be, his family used that word often and interchangeable with other words in everyday conversation. It was a tough thing for my parents to get used to although hubby tried not to say it. Still to this day that is the word that comes flying out when things are going wrong. Of course it only gets better from there. Don't know why I brought that up, just feeling like "that" today. So much drama at this time of year and I don't want any part of if, but somehow I always manage to end up in the middle of something...crap.
Have a happy Monday and a good week...spread some cheer and joy, it only takes a smile!
