Blaise's Third Birthday

Watch the video
An experiment with Microsoft Plus Photo Story. I am always finding new programs that are on my computer and don't know quite what they are ... this is one of them. Soooo I tried it ... pretty cool. Took some pics from Blaise's Birthday in Oct and put this together. All of these programs are on my PC so it uses Windows Media Player to show them. This blog is a great way to share all of the varieties of formats that are available. I hope that you enjoy them!!

My Future Videoblogger!

Oh Yes, I think that Blaise will definitely be a future videoblogger. He watches me all the time, and of course wants to play with all of the keys! I think that He will be showing Me how to videoblog in no time!

Rock the Turtle

Watch the video

This is my Very First Attempt at "editing a movie". I did it with Windows Movie Maker. I don't know how to do all the the editing in Quicktime ... so stay with me while I explore the options ...
This was a turtle that just crawled up our driveway one afternoon. Where did it come from?? who knows ... I asked my neighbors with kids if it belonged to anyone they knew ... ended up belonging to an older couple two houses away. We had "Rock" as Blaise called him for a couple of days, because they were away on vacation.
A few weeks later "Rock" came to visit us again, this time they had written their phone number and name on him. I think that he likes our house better ... a lot more fun!

Alice Keck Park Picnic

Watch the video
This was actually my very first attemp at putting together a video slideshow ... just had to figure out a few things first.
This is a beautiful park in Santa Barbara! Blaise and I had a little picnic then went across the street to "Kids World" to play!
This slide show is for you Dru! Riley and Blaise will play together soon!!
This was made with Windows Movie Maker and can be viewed with Windows Media Player.
Now I need another lesson from Mindy on how to add sound to the video slideshows for the full effect!

It's Thomas the Train!

We love Halloween at our house. This year Philip went all out with the decorating. He had pumpkin lights strung over the side entryway to the house. Inside the house he had more multi colored pumpkin lights in the kitchen window. In the dining room he hung two big pumpkins with lights inside. Every day there
would be more festive items at the house. We had three pumpkins that I
carved Halloween day with Blaise. "Gram" came up for the evening so Philip and I
could go out "trick or treating" with Blaise. At first he really didn't get the whole ring the doorbell thing but then of course had a blast! He really liked his Thomas the Train outfit that He picked out himself!! A Very Happy Night was had by all!!
