Good morning friends. Happy last day of 2013! Do you have big plans for tonight? I'm heading out to The Loft this morning to try to snag one of those trendy sweatshirts with jewels and sequins emblazoned on them. That seems like the perfect attire for our lasagna dinner with neighborhood friends and 9PM new year's countdown. :)
I am still fully in "break" mode (so much so that my to-do list is exactly the same length it was a week ago and there is a VERY good chance that - after ten glorious days of catching up on rest and relaxing - I will have to stay up all night Wednesday to get some things done and go back to work on Thursday more exhausted than before), so this will be short and sweet; but, here are a few photos from our Christmas:
|Our quiet Christmas Eve - before a little driving light tour and hot chocolate.|
|Leaving cookies for Santa and treats for the reindeer. Sam kept eating all of the reindeer snacks. Hilarious.|
|My table for Christmas breakfast.|
|Christmas morning "mess."|
|Homemade "busy board" from Bear.|
|Modeling new hats with Uncle Richard.|
|Our little family in Northern Virginia before our annual lunch at Great Aunt Martha's.|
Speaking of photos and memories...
I just discovered this cool new L.A. video company made up of award-winning filmmakers called Yourkidvid. They're bringing their talents to all those little videos we have hanging around (and taking up so.much.space) on our phone and computer, and turning them into short films. Little cinematic experiences.
How YourKidVid works: You capture. They captivate.
Your problem: You have a ton of video clips sitting on your phone and computer. What now?
