Some video

1) Aaron recently got a Mac. Thank you to those responsible.
2) We recently dipped our video camera in the ocean.

So we have been trying to find a good video camera that we like. We have bought and returned two so far, so we are on our third camera in about a week and a half. We can’t test most of them in the store, so we just have to buy them. Since we are not satisfied we return the merchandise and demand a refund because we don’t take no crap off of nobody.

I am also learning to use my mac and imovie, so I made a little video collection of the Sam in the process of learning new cameras and programs. It’s posted on youtube at It’s not filled with action, but has a few things we think are funny.


(More to come on which video cameras we like, I guess.)


New video camera

Hey people, more video to come after an unfortunate lapse. We went to the beach a few weeks ago and dipped our video camera in the Gulf of Mexico. We just thought it would be fun and that our camera could use a nice, cool refreshing dip in the dirty ocean. I hope he did because that was the last water he will ever experience. That’s usually how it goes with electronics and sad/water.

Sam is doing well, though. He is starting to clearly say a few words like bye-bye, yes, and dada. He says lots of words, but they’re all a little fuzzy. You can make them out, but have to listen closely, but these few are becoming very clear and “big boy.”

He has not been doing so hot in the nursery. He did ok at first, but now he screams and cries when we leave him. It’s sweet, and we sort of love it, but we feel like terrible parents when we walk away. It’s always pretty hard.

When I left him yesterday he cried so I knelt down and talked to him and he just turned around to face the room and backed into me so he was leaning on me with his hands on my legs. He seemed like he felt so safe and comfortable. We really want to see him get more comfortable, but we have to admit selfishly that we love him treating us like this.

So anyway, more to come, as promised, this time for real. Hopefully video soon and definitely some pics. Thanks for following and walking with us.

Charity is on the web

Nothing too cute or deep to add at this particular second, but I wanted everyone to be aware that Charity has officially arrived on the web. For all who know her, this technology embrace may come as a shock, but well, here she is all the same. Her site is pretty cool, and we are working to make it better. We are still working through some issues to get it all right, so at this point it takes a minute or so to load the full site, but it’s worth the wait. The girl is good behind the lens.

So without any further delay, check her out:
