Christmas 2008 from Kim S on Vimeo.

I want my children to be able to look back on their childhood memories. I want them to remember the things we did together as a family. I doubt they'll go back and read the blog. But they might show their children a 10 minute"home movie" of their childhood Christmases. I am even going to go back and make one for last year (it was our first Christmas with Kate).

The photographic quality of this video is very disappointing. I made a Christmas video and a video of our year in review (2008) as a surprise to show the kids on New Years Eve. The quality that I needed to reduce it to post is not good.  Also, Y*utube would not accept the original music (copyright, schmopyright). So this varies a lot from what I made for our family to watch on the DVD player but I knew my Mom and sister and a few friends might still want to see it.

I will still post Christmas photos this week. I am sure most of you do not want to sit through 10 minutes of our Christmas celebrations:)


  1. So precious. It's a beautiful video for the kiddies and you to enjoy all the wonderful Christmas memories.

    I put together a little slideshow on my blog from Christmas but I didn't post the one I made for would not let me due to music issues.

  5. Great video!! Check out one true media...I have a lot posted that way. You can do the basic thing for free but pay a bit and get better can also order the DVD of the video.
