I’ve been wanting to test out the HD video function on my camera for awhile now, and this negative temp Saturday morning seemed like as good a time as ever. Marie was drawing a picnic scene, complete with hotdog, raspberry lemonade (with ice and a straw!), chips, and a purple cake (of course), and the light was so nice coming in through the kitchen windows. If you closed your eyes and sat in the sun, you might forget that we’re still weeks away from warmer weather.
Please forgive the imperfect editing — I did it with a four year old on my lap!

I recently created a photo gallery going down one of our staircases, and in the process of choosing which photos to print, I went through literally thousands of photos from the last seven years. I also came across some videos we took when the girls were younger, from our time in both Chicago and Texas. Photos are great at capturing details, but video is so powerful at capturing emotion! When I watch this one back, I can already see myself watching it ten years from now and reminiscing about her little pre-school mannerisms, her sweet little hands, the way she tucked her hair behind her ears, and the fact that my kitchen table is hardly ever free from a pile of crayons and paper these days.
