What A Year It Has Been

Well this video has been a long time coming. For one, I just took the time to figure out how to work iMovie using Nick's Macbook. Two, I had to do some sifting through photos and video. And Third, after I decided on all of my favorite pictures to use I had to go and cut some because there were just so many and I didn't want to make my first video longer than 5 minutes so that people would actually watch it. So here it is. Enjoy!

P.S. I had a lot of fun!

It should be noted that I did not help my lovely bride with this video at all. I simply told her what to do to get started.

You've done a GREAT job and I am very impressed with your skills. I am going to have to step up my game or quickly be eclipsed by your video directing prowess.

And....I love you!

This made me cry at the part where they come home!!! So sweet. You did a fantastic job. You are going to watch this in a couple of years and be SO glad you made it.

Well this seems to be a true testament to how FAST the time really goes. I remember when they came home and how happy you were they were with you and everything in between up until their first birthday. It definitely makes me want to savor every moment. It's so hard to believe they were ever that little bitty. They have grown so fast, and I think that's what made me tear up.

GREAT JOB on the video! Love you.
