"... prepare to die!"

I was cleaning through some old recordings of the boys today and ran across this family favorite. Who doesn't love Princess Bride?  Our number 3 boy is so cute I just want to squish his little face! Sunrise, sunset, as they say.  This little actor is turning 12 one month from today, actually, and I am crazy about him.  

I have such vivid memories of my dad gathering us all around and cranking up the old movie projector.  Click, click, click.  There were the movies of me and my two younger brothers dancing, or of us running up and down the driveway.... over and over.  You know, the stuff only a loving parent can watch 57,000 times without ever getting bored. 

It's hard to believe I am now that parent.  I sit here at the computer and get all misty-eyed as I see these videos of my kids when they were tiny.  When they were our entertainment as we sat and marveled at them and their funny things they did.  

I better go get a tissue.  I have another 56,999 viewings before dinner.

Adorable!!! My kids are all in/near this age so I can totally relate.

Hi Karen, thanks for your comment on my blog. I have another blog you should check out, www.momshots.com

We love living in Springville too. I am even more enamored of it because I get to call my self a Springvillan. I've never put that one together! :)

I bet we'll bump into each other at Allen's or the library one of these days!

I think I could watch that 57,000 times with no trouble at all. He was so cute then and he's still adorable now. :)

That face is "to die" for! Great little video. And I liked hearing Gid laughing in the background. I think I could watch it 57,000 times too!
