Learning from Old DVD's

On Fast Sunday, instead of eating breakfast, we watch one of our old family DVD's. The kids love it, and it's nice to take a glimpse back in time. I will admit, that these DVD's get watched/looked at more than the scrapbooks. But, I like to have stock in many options, and apparently I have a lot of spare time. Who knew?
Today we're watching our old home movies, way back when we borrowed my parents old camcorder. I am learning many things:
1. Man, we had to dress our kids warm in Utah. I watched Drew dress Conner in a onsie, and then a long sleeved onsie over that one. And I was like, "WHO DOES THAT?" Well, people in Utah during the winter do, that's who. :) FYI, we don't do that now.
2. I hate myself. Man, don't you hate listening to yourself on tape? Especially since we're doing high-pitched-trying-to-get-our-kids-to-smile-talk. Drew hates himself too, it's just sad. Normally I require us to watch the video with the kids, but honestly -- the kids are loving it and Drew and I are losing self esteem by the minute. Hence, I am writing a blog (and Drew's looking at the ads).
3. Conner looks just like P. Or, P looks like him, take your pick. They are adorable babies, just as cute as Mr. Spencer.

On a side note, I have obsessive need to rotate through P's clothing. Just another observation.


  1. That's a fave Sunday Activity at our house, too. And I really hate seeing myself/hearing myself. So I usually don't watch.

  2. Jared could spend all day watching home videos of himself. I also hate hearing myself on the camera. Every time the videos play I make a mental note to speak only as necessary to give context - when I do remember I find it is nearly impossible for me to be quiet even for just a few moments...
