I just made a quick little trailer using iMovie 11 movie trailer feature. I have been wanting to do it for since getting the new iLife. It was really quick and easy to do. Hope to get a chance to put together a video of all the fun that we had today at the pumpkin patch.
I found this footage on my camera when I was downloading other video and discovered that Gavin and Halee both decided to try and be like iCarly. There were a couple of times during their shooting that disaster could have occurred with the camera, but thank goodness it didn't. Might have to look into getting them a flip camera.
Found this footage as I was importing other footage from the camera. Looks like they were trying to produce a show like iCarly. I tried to edit it down some, despite them using my camera without me knowing it, I thought it was pretty funny stuff. Looks like I might need to invest in a flip or kodak video camera for them to play with so that my nice one doesn’t get messed up.
UPDATE: Exposureroom went under, am moving everything to vimeo.
On a side note I am looking at using this new video hosting site exposureroom.com for hosting my videos. It’s free, quality looks awesome. They give so much control I love it so far. I guess only time will tell.
Just uploaded some a new photo album of mostly our kids along with a couple of family photos that we took a couple of weeks back. The kids really enjoy playing on this tree and I have been wanting to get some photos of them on this tree for sometime now. Enjoy!!
Halee wrote this last week as a part of not letting the Dad’s feel left out of Mother’s day since they aren’t going to be in school during Father’s Day. I thought it was really awesome, and she knows her daddy!!! Not going to lie got me a little choked up!! I am so blessed with 2 wonderful kids who I love and cherish!
Both Halee and Gavin have really been interested in what it means to be a Christian lately. With as much as we talk about Jesus and God around our house it is no doubt why. With Easter finishing last weekend, we had a couple of baptisms on Easter Sunday, which brought up even more questions.
We have been talking off and on with them for the past few weeks, and both kids responded with I’m already a Christian because I believe in Jesus. One thing that has always been important to me for the kids is that they make the decision on their own and without us persuading them. I wanted to make sure that they understood what it meant to accept Christ as their savior and to fully understand (what they can at their age) about sin.
Sunday night both kids asked when they could get baptized. I sat with them individually and talked about it and asked them if they wanted to pray to accept Jesus into their life. They both wanted to and I felt like they both have an understanding of what it all means. I am so excited about them making this decision in their life and realizing the importance of it. They were both excited and the next morning Halee yelled down to Nana, “I’m a Christian!!”
My biggest prayer for them has always been that they will grow up making God the center of their life. I also pray that Kristee and I will be parents that always point them to God in everything that they do. I pray the they grow up to not only be Christian but leaders for Christ in this lost world.
Halee got some sort of a peanut butter cookie thing at school and brought some home to share but more importantly to her she wanted to show momma. She was hoping that Kristee would be able to tell what it was so that they could make some. We weren’t in the door but for about 2 minutes and Halee gave me a small bite to eat and then ate the rest of it herself. A couple more minutes passed and she looked at me and said, “Ahhh, I ate it all!!” I said what forgetting about the cookie and she said, “The cookie I was going to show momma!” Wow kids crack me up with what they come up with.
I found some photos on one of my cameras that I had forgotten to put on my computer and then some taken at recent events with the kids. (Halloween and Pumpkin Patch) Click on Album link to get to each photo album.
Halee is sick today so she stayed at the office with Kristee. I got off work then went and picked Halee up and then Gavin from school. On the way home Halee fell asleep and Gavin said to me that he was going to say a prayer for him right then. I wanted to share his prayer.
“God I want to pray for Halee because she is not feeling well, help her get better so she can do stuff and go to school because I had fun at school. God heal her with your Powerful Hand and make her better. In Jesus name Amen.”
This is one area I know that all of us could have some help in. Like the Bible says, “we are to have the faith of a child”. It is so powerful to hear Gavin who is 5 have this tremendous amount of faith in God and who He is.
I got to talking with both kids this morning on the way to school about what it meant to accept Jesus into your life. We were listening to Way (local christian station) and a song talked about the Holy Spirit and Gavin asked what was the Holy Spirit. I shared with him that we accept Jesus as our Savior and the Holy Spirit lives within us. (That led to all kinds of questions) The conversation eventually got to being baptized and Gavin kept saying bathtized, which in all honesty makes sense. He cracks me up with what he comes up with.
