Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

Movie Makers

I apologize for a post with SO MANY movies of my kids. Oh, wait, no I don't. They all make me laugh (because they are my kids, after all) and if you don't like them, just don't watch them. But you'll like them. Because, well, my kids are stinking funny!

At age 4 Adam already wants to be a movie maker. It's in his blood, he can't help it. My older brother made his first movie, The Time Machine, years ago with my parent's old 8mm camera.

And then there's the Snow White remake that my cousin and I made. Of course I was Snow White. And my younger brother had a cameo as the Dread Pirate Roberts. Yes, he was in this version of Snow White. (She'll laugh when she reads this, and say "Oh my gosh! I had forgotten all about that!")

After his cameo in my Hollywood blockbuster my younger brother later came into his own as a movie maker, too.

My college degree is in broadcasting.

So, it really comes as no surprise that my son has a desire to make movies himself.

A few nights ago I had my Canon point and shoot out that also has the ability to take short movie clips. I also had a purchased a new tripod (my bargain of the day that I found on a clearance table for 2 bucks after an otherwise unsuccessful day of shopping.)

They SO wanted to see what the tripod did. So I showed them. And the rest is history.

Below are movies taken BY my children. Adam would tell Zoey to go in front of the camera and he'd turn it on and tell her action! So, I apologize for the horrible lighting and the somewhat bouncy camera work. But I've been trying unsuccessfully for weeks to get Zoey to sing me a few songs and with one word Zoey would do it for Adam.

Hopefully you enjoy them a bit....because I find them tremendously hilarious!

How's it gonna take the picture?

You know they say never to work with Kids or Animals.

But If the Kids are your own....

With Out POWERS (kids) Combined . . .

If you know what I mean.

Your kids are adorable. I'm glad I got to witness their cuteness in their clips.

Unlike Ryan, I do wish that Snow White was on this post. Does it still exist? If I remember correctly, Beauty and the Beast were in it as well. Perhaps they were just playing other people though. I can't remember. Ah, good times.

Oh, it's making me giggling just thinking about it! Let's do it again!

Kristin said...

Oh my gosh! I am totally grinning from ear to ear right now all because of your sweet little girl singing "Pop, Goes My Heart." I just loved that movie and Morgan and I used to sing that song over and over. Good times. Thanks for reminding me how much I loved that movie!
