I grow weary of people bemoaning technology. Longing for the old days. Here's the thing - everything is what you make of it. Everything.
Photo albums can be wonderful, or photos can sit in a box and never be looked at. It's what you've made of them that matters.
I wasn't much of a scrap-booker, myself, but my oldest were born in the BOOM of all things scrapbook, so I felt like I didn't have a choice. By the time our third came around I'd pretty much thrown in the towel on the whole thing, so she was five before she had a baby book! Thankfully Mary's was easier - by then technology had caught up to my way of doing things. We had her adoption blog printed into book form. Voila - done!
But this, I can do - videos set to music. I love making them - the kids love watching them. And oh do they watch them! Again and again... which is, of course, the point. Sure, I love it when others (you!) enjoy what I've put together, but I'm fully aware that I'm no expert. These aren't of a quality to impress; they're made for the kids.
I decided to link them all (or as many of them as I can recollect at the moment) in one place, here. Enjoy. Or don't. But do make some memories of your own, and capture them in a way that makes you happy and that your family will enjoy for years to come!
