It's That Time of Year Again

Juliana's birthday is next Saturday and I haven't even started making her birthday video** yet. Those of you who wondered how long it would take me before the birthday video tradition became in danger of falling by the wayside- I'd say the answer is about six years. I'm still going to make one this year (even though we're not having an official family party but rather a girly gathering at a place called Wee Imagine) but it is definitely becoming a time problem, even though I've been thinking about starting on it for weeks now. Making the videos became harder once I had two children to create for of course, but I love the finished product so much that I'm not ready to retire them just yet. It's bad enough that I hardly have time to blog anymore, I can't imagine dropping the music video project just yet. Plus even if Juliana becomes too old for me to make sappy music videos about her I still have to make them for Ava for at least as long as I do for Juli so it's equal treatment, right?

Don't you hate it when real life gets in the way of your attempts to document it?

**If and when I do finish this year's video, I'm thinking of posting it on the girls' website. Maybe I'll even post all of the ones I've made over the years, though possibly with a password required. It's high time I figured out this whole video on the interweb thing.


  1. Best thing ever? If you scored the birthday video with Juli's own singing. I still giggle when I think of the high-pitched-and-muffled, seemingly-random-but-strangely-ethereal sound of that wafting down the stairs.
