Mondays in Motion: Random moments 2008

Mondays in Motion!

Mondays in Motion is back! We'll stick to the first Monday of every month going forward and I'll try to remember to post a reminder a week before each month.

For this month, here's a collection of some random video clips from 2008, starting with Jan08 and ending Dec08. A couple of them you may have seen before but most are new :).

This includes their first snow, a trip to the aquarium, riding Grandpa Danny's little cart (the speed dial showed a rabbit and a turtle and no matter how many times I told Bearhug to keep it on turtle, he kept pushing it to rabbit!). I love Bitty's solution to playing Putt-Putt :). And I was amazed when Cuddlebug and Bearhug wanted to ride the bumper cars - all that loud music and bright flashing lights (which they would typically want to avoid) seems like massive overstimulation waiting to happen. But apparently the spinning and crashing (which they LOVE!) was more than enough to balance it out and they had a blast! They were later joined by Grandpa Chris and even talked Great-Grandma Dora into going in with them. I don't have video of that but I do have pics so I'll have to show them in another post. At the end they are playing with the remote control cars they got for Christmas at Uncle Terry's house. See that nice long hallway with tiled and hardwood floors? They had a ton of fun sliding up and down that in their socks :).

It's your turn! If you don't make it today, feel free to join in anytime during the week. :)

Link a vid of Lucas taking some steps the other day. I am so not ready for walkers LOL I love the clips all together. I so need to figure out how to do that.

I didn't have time to get another movie up, but I am linking to last Monday. Love the video you made, so many great memories over the year!

Fabulous! I especially loved the bubble-gun chase! So good at sharing and taking turns!

You really deserve those virtual awards for showing your real life! Mondays in Motion is great - encouraging motion is a lot what I do, too. The dvd goes in the mail today! Barbara

What fun memories! I also especially liked the bubble gun chase! They took turns getting each other and it was all in good fun! Thanks for doing Mondays in Motion and being patient with me when I'm not with it. Lol! I could almost make scatterbrained mom of the year most of the time. At least that's how I feel! :D

Dude! This is SO much fun! I love the combo of so many videos into one!!! What did you use?

That was really a nice tribute of memory lane. I haven't gotten that good to tie in different videos. Maybe one day I will sit on the computer and figure it out.

Take care.

@Dianna, Izzy 'N Emmy, and Julie - thanks for sharing your videos, they're great!

@CC - I used Cyberlink PowerDirector to make the video. I have a lot of fun with that. although it can be a bit time-consuming. My camera (which I have with me much more often than the camcorder) takes short video clips so I combined a bunch that I have taken over the year.
