Inspired family video


#1

The last few years have been difficult for my family and during that time I would search youtube for Disney family videos to cheer me up. I was inspired by the Wolfe family videos of dancing and family fun.

This past year I bought a video camera and decided to make some videos of our own. I am always creating inexpensive fun with my family and really enjoy video taping these great moments. I was really inspired by this family to take our fun and create a new way to keep our memories enjoyable to watch.

We started with Halloween. I have always been something “pretty” or “cute” for Halloween and this was the first year I decided to be something “scary”
Enjoy

Next we made our Christmas video. We started this one early and really planned out what we wanted to do. Like I said before we have been through some difficult financial times and this was the first year we were doing well with our finances and we were able to give gifts this year. This was a very special Christmas and we really wanted to share it with everyone.

I really enjoyed making, editing and sharing our new videos and my family and friends. They were enjoying them as much as I did. My uncle really enjoyed them so much so that he bought me a new computer for Christmas to help with my editing and storing our videos. (I had a very old computer that was on its way out and full of memory)

Every year for about 17 year our friends and family gather for a sleigh ride. This year I was really excited to create a video of all the fun. It was a very cold and rainy evening but we can have fun no matter the weather as long as we are together.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as we do!

They’re all great! Are you going to make one from your upcoming trip?

You may have inspired me do actually do something with all the home videos that are just sitting on the hard drive of the computer. Thanks, it brings back memories of my own family and similar traditions.

We LOVE Halloween! We trick or treat in 3 different towns and usually have about 2 or 3 parties to go to. I can’t get enough!! Love the dressing up too!

Oh yes I am working on the story board now and have many ideas of the fun things we want in the video.
Can’t wait


#9

OH I hope so!! It has really been so wonderful for me and my family to have these videos. If you do please share.
Do you have editing software? My macbook has Imovie and the program is so easy to use. Every one thinks I am so talented but I can’t take the credit imovie does most of the work for you.

This year we took another road trip down to Siesta Key FL and brought our 16 yr old niece with us, we asked her to pick the music for the video that my DH would be making and she suggested “Holiday Road” by Lindsay Buckingham. It’s a great choice for a Vacation music video.
