Five years time

It has become apparent to me that I am developing an unhealthy penchant for iMovie.  Every song I hear on my Pandora station immediately conjures up some stock footage in my brain of my life gone by and I am automatically adding title screens and transitions and still shots along to the beat as I edit away in my mind.  I have been late for more than one social engagement because of music/photo syncing issues.  I refer to sleeping as “fading to black.”

It’s bad.

So I’m going to take a break from the movie making for a little while and focus again on writing, caps locking and sarcasming. Also, sleeping.

But first, just one more video.

As I watched the video I thought…wow, what a wonderful, happy childhood and the memories Noah is gathering! Y’all are great parents to two precious children!

omg, cutest video ever! That song was clearly made for this occasion! Love the straight cuts, which pair so well with the bouncy tune:)

I thoroughly enjoyed the last 4 minutes and 3 seconds of my life that I just spent watching Noah’s 5th birthday video. Good job, momma.

how awesome! obviously all the time spent editing videos in your mind has paid off. you could be the person that picks out the music for movie and tv show soundtracks. :)

I love the whole thing, but the laughing at the beginning is probably a wonder cure for countless ailments.
