I like memories in motion.

Photos are amazing. You know I looooove me some pretty photographs. But I also have a deep love for video too. Nothing dramatic, just little clips that help give an overall feel of a day/event/moment, whatever.

There's something about video that feels like less pressure for me versus getting the perfect photograph (which rarely happens). I really enjoy flipping in and out of video mode on my camera for the month of December, then compiling some of those little blips into a bigger story.

I hope I always can hold onto these happy memories with my family.

So I promise this is the only Christmas Recap you'll get from me. I mean, nothing else is needed. :)

And? It's sweet. I think you'll like it, too. 



I may or may not have watched it 5x myself already.

Make that 6.

Happy New Year, peeps.

  7. LOVE this!! So so sweet...you have such a precious family. :)

    I said the same thing a few weeks ago to Patrick about taking more videos, so have been using our Flip camera. I have no storage on my stupid phone, and my DSLR doesn't do video. Which makes me want to upgrade to a new camera simply for that, as the quality of the Flip is about equivalent to my cell phone I feel. Do you like taking video with your camera? I mean, is it simple enough? I really need to look more in depth into it and decide if it's worth me upgrading. Sorry for the random long comment ha. :)

  13. What a sweet, beautiful video! I am going to have to bookmark this post for next year as a reminder to take more video! I didn't even bring out my big girl camera this year. I know, completely shameful, but I blame it on being sick and not thinking clearly.

  20. Stoppit right now -- Emeline's dance moves are HILARIOUS! She seems so fun and I always feel like (and probably say this to you, sorry) she's the female version of E! He's so funny, and the things he says...slays me.

    ANYWAY. Love the video. I always love videos like this, and I wish I took more. I need to take more for this reason...so fun to watch.

  28. I've discovered a big love for video this past year. It seems to really capture my kids how they really are, mannerisms and all. Plus, as you say, there isn't quite so much pressure for the perfect shot.
    Love your video. It's so cute. x
