Tuesday's Tip


Do you love watching old home movies? We sure do! Do you record hours of your children's playtime and milestones on your video recorder? We do! Many of our tapes sit unused and unwatched in a special box. Therefore, I have started trying to take the time to download them to DVD so that we can actually watch them. I store copies of the movies in our car so that the children can actually see THEMSELVES in the movies. They love it!! They will even watch the same event over and over because they love to see themselves "when they were little". It is so precious! Tuesday's Tip is that you should try putting home movie dvds in your car too!

How fun! I still love watching the old movies that my parents have of my brother and I. It is quite the chore with getting out the projector and the old movie screen though. {haha}

Macy isn't to keen on watching hers yet....wonder why? Still surprises me. Hope your having a great day! xoxo

You are too clever!
Maybe I'll send my son some of his and he can share them with his college friends ;)
Over the holidays we pulled out some of our home movies from when my brother and I were growing up ~ too funny! Our children got a kick out of seeing us in the "olden days".

Have a great week ~
