Paxton's first year movie

My husband is such a wonderful, caring, loving father to our sweet son.  A few months ago he came to me with the idea to make a cover of Darius Rucker's song Wagon Wheel with the help of another extremely talented couple, Matt and Chelsea Brunoehler. Brad took care of the guitar, bass and drum parts, Chelsea came in to help with the vocals and Matt also did vocals in addition to the banjo and mandolin parts.  I love how it turned out!

Brad has been asking me for months now to make this picture slideshow video and I finally got around to going through my massive amounts, I'm talking thousands and thousands, of pictures to pick just a few that would go into the short 5 minute video.  It was my first time attempting to use iMovie and while the program was great I had no idea what I was doing and probably could have spent a year learning the details and massive capabilities of that program.   While it's not perfect it does the job of taking us through Paxton's first year of life and I can't help but get emotional to see how much he's changed and grown in just one short year. 

And now here we are.  Already one month into his second year!!  This sweet boy has brought an enumerable amount of love, joy, happiness into my life and has enriched my world beyond imagining.

I hope you enjoy!!

Hi! I have been following your blog, for some time now, as I was initially seeking information on Okinawa for an upcoming PCS. I have enjoyed your blog, the wealth of information you have shared, your positive spirit, and not to mention your fun sense of style! I have continued to follow your journey, and I have been tempted to leave a comment a few times, but I rarely comment on anything. However, today I simply can't keep my mouth shut. The video of your son is so darn precious! He is an absolute doll baby. What a true blessing! We love living in Oki, but that cover of 'Wagon Wheel' sure made me homesick (they did a great job)! Best wishes to you and your beautiful family ...
