Since yesterday was a special day -- ie. our anniversary -- and I didn't want to miss out on sharing my weekly Friday Funnies...I decided to do a "crossover post" with my usual Saturday Sweethearts.
Yeah. Yeah. Confusing, I know. But stick with me.
We made this video for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I think it turned out well, all things considered, though nothing like the "Hallmark-quality" video I had pictured in my head.
The idea was to play the sweet "happy birthday" song in the background, while the kids each held a card bearing one letter in the phrase: "Happy Birthday, Granny! XOX"
What the video doesn't show, however, was just how many times we had to redo it before we got something semi-usable. The cards would get out of order. One kid would forget to smile. Another would have a tantrum. The cards would get dropped. The song would stop too soon.
Still in all, it turned out to be a fun memory that (hopefully) brought a smile and chuckle and feeling of love to the recipient.
After all, that was the goal.
