Claire's slideshow 2010



Every year I like to make Claire a video slideshow of snapshots throughout the year.  Here is 2010's.  If this video isn't evidence that photos hold so much emotional value, I don't know what is!  I need my tissues when I watch it! I absolutely love the song it's set to.

"When you reach for the stars, 
don't forget who you are.
Please don't turn around
and grow up way too fast.

See the sand in my grasp
from the first to the last,
every grain becomes a memory of the past
Life's an hourglass

.....

Just like you, I was small
not that long ago at all.
I wish you all the happiness
that God gives freely if you ask."

SO darling Kate. We keep watching it over and over. Crying, of course. Love it! SO sweet and tender. I wouldn't expect anything else from you. WUV!

She is my sweety sweety and want to mush her face every time I watch it!

Thank you for sharing that, Kate!! She is such a cutie!! Because our babies are close together in age I couldn't help but, listen to that song and think of Emmalee. They grow up so fast that you have to remember to truly enjoy everything you go through with them. The good and the bad. Thank you for reminding me what a blessing it is to be a mom and that I should never take it for granted.
