this title escapes me

Ive been neglecting my blog. We just had a big night in Young Womens so I should be back at this game for a while. Until the next big thing. I swear we (me and the other YW leaders) should start a website "Extreme Young Womens." lets just say when we do a skit for camp, its a full production. Our girls and leaders are so creative, it seems a waste not to share it with the world.

Its late now, so Ill just share a video I made the year I had Luke, and all three boys were at home. Have I told you about my families obsession with multimedia? We have a film festival every year and this was one of my entries. It didn't win.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this video! it motivates me to use my camera more!

Sonja said...

I cry everytime I watch this--it is awesome! And for the record, I think you DID win the film festival that year. Does the trophy mean nothing to you?

Forecast said...

Ahhh, that is so precious. Do you remember making a movie for Charlotte's first year? It's a family favorite, we watch it all the time. To bad that we didn't live next to a cool neighbor when our other kids turned one. I feel like breaking out the video camera right now, to capture more moments that I'm going to miss someday.

Did I win that year? I guess cause I still have the trophy I thought I won this year. Im glad some of you can see the video, I cant get it to work on my computer, Ill see what I can do.

Mary said...

That was just cute. It made me cry. I had no idea about your film making capabilities. I was glad to see Winston being so loved in the video. You know how much I love him.

Cara said...

Now that I can't stop bawling! (it's a good cry=) That was so incredibly amazing. You are beyond talented! Add film making to your list of many talents. I really lost it when James turns around in front of Sego Lily and waves by...in perfect sync with the words to the music. Thank you for posting that. I really needed it today!

I can see the video, and I think you won that year. Remember how EVERYBODY won something this year? Looks like you may get to keep that trophy indefinitely.

Alisa-
That was beautiful...and made me so glad I let mine be little (AND THEY ALWAYS SLEPT IN THE MIDDLE!!)
Hang in there.

You need to warn everyone to go and grab the tissues before they push play! That was so sweet.

Alisa, I'm a friend of Daija's and I have been reading your blog for a little while now. (I hope you don't mind). But I just HAVE to tell you that you have been an inspiration for me to be a better woman and mommy. That video made me cry and that song was awesome! I'm grateful for how candid you are with your life and struggles. You have helped me when I've had hard days with my kids and everything else...I think of you and how you have handled this challenge that Heavenly Father has given you! I think "If she can handle this HUGE trial and I can DEFINITELY handle my house being messy! or my kid spitting up on me!" I wish you the best with everything. You and your family deserve it!

That is soooooo cute.
It made me cry, and you know how hard that is to do! So sweet.

ronco said...

As good today as the day it was made.

lou said...

I couldn't see the video, but if it was "let them be little" it won.

jennie said...

Again... I'm crying. I love it. Is that the movie you tried to show me once, but couldn't find? If so, I'm glad you found it.

jennie said...

I found my camera cord.

Jamie Smith said...

Wow! I lost when James was in front of the school and turned around, you know how to evoke emotion! Inspiring thats for sure. The winner that year must have been amazing!
