It feels good to be around, writing more again, sort of. I'd like to think that I'm having an extra second to sit, write and share because the wedding festivities are over---but if I'm being honest, it might be because I just finished Downton Abbey yesterday. Which, by the way---oh.my.gosh. And yes, on rare occasion I will get sucked into some show, watch every episode back to back (as many as I can squeeze into my day), and totally lose track of the outside world. Don't act like you've never done it.
I did it with Friday Night Lights. Downton Abbey, now. What's next? (kidding. a little)
Anyway. I have some random things I want to share. None of which really go together. So I shall hodge-podge it into one post.
I like to shoot video clips with my camera. It's one of my favorite things. In fact, I'd almost prefer that to taking photos. There's just something about a million little clips, formed into one, making a little story that makes my heart all happy and warm. Back in October, when we went wedding dress shopping with my sister, while she thought I was taking photos, I was really taking video. Then, I surprised her with this little video keepsake of her picking her dress--and she loved it.
It sucked having to keep it under wraps for so long, but hello---you can't spoil the wedding dress before THE day.
So you can watch it now.
Remember how I mentioned that Emeline had a blast dancing at the wedding? Well, near the end of the reception, I found her in the midst of adults, as she's dancing her butt off. It took me a few minutes to pick my jaw up off the floor and laughing hysterically to finally think to grab my camera to get some video.
It's short. And she had lost a little of her energy by this point. But still? You get the gist.
Speaking of butt.
Earlier, I was giving the girls a bath before naptime. Due to a late night and skipped baths, it was necessary. Anyway---
Me: "Em, stand up so I can scrub your back and your butt."
Em: "Mom, it's called a bottom, don't say butt, dat's not nice."
I got told, by my toddler. We use "bottom" or "booty" about 99% of the time. When, in a hurry, I use the word "butt"? She has to go all adult on me.
