A Video from Home!!!

I know it's been a while since I last updated my blog, but my life hasn't really been too interesting lately lol. Anyway, for Christmas I decided to make Eric a video with his camera that I sent him (Thats all he wanted), but I didn't just want to send a meaningless piece of equipment lol, so I decided to get creative. I thought to myself, "Hmmmm, it's Christmas time and I am going to get to spend time with both of our wonderful families, and I bet he is sad that he is missing out on the holidays. I know what I'll do, I'll put everyone on the spot and make them do a video for him, that way he can see how much we all miss him." At first I thought this would be a piece of cake, then I realized it's kind of difficult to get babies to smile on camera, edit everyones videos the way I wanted them to work, find the time to meet with people, and I realized I would have to be on the video too (I feel super awkward with a camera in my face). After about a week of visiting with family, opening gifts, and eating way, way too much food, I finally finished everyones individual videos. After I had met and videoed everyone, I had to put the entire thing together. I had a vision in my mind of what I wanted it to be like, and I feel that I did a pretty good job, considering the fact that I had absolutely no idea how to edit lol. Luckily my computer has a nice little app called iMovie, and helped me out a great deal.

I uploaded the video to youtube so Eric can watch it whenever he wants (because he will probably lose the disc lol) so, if any of you would like to see how it turned out, here is the link…

Like I said, I'm pretty awkward on camera, SO NO MAKING FUN OF ME!!! lol I hope no one minds me uploading this, I would like to thank everyone that helped me make it. I know he absolutely loved it, and it truly meant a lot to him. Each of you are special to us, and without y'all I don't know if I could get through this rough journey. We both love all of you dearly, and we are very blessed to have you in our lives.
Thanks again,

P.s. It's about 7 1/2 minutes long, lol, I felt the need to put that in there for some reason <3

  1. This was the best gift idea ever. I am sure this is something you will both cherish forever, and it is something cool to show your kids someday. For the record I don't like myself on video either sister.
