I uploaded a video to YouTube last night of our Christmas tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve. My kids were 13 and 18 at the time but it was the first time we had done it since having them.
The reason for that was it was my family tradition and not my husband’s. He was totally against it for reasons I can’t remember right now. I finally talked him into it by remembering to tell him that only one gift was allowed and he finally agreed.
I just wanted my kids to have something from my childhood that I thoroughly enjoyed doing with my family. Of course they loved it too, just like I knew they would.
I honestly hope we can start some new traditions just for us that neither mine nor my husband’s family did. That would be so awesome for us as a family to start.

P.S. Here’s my holiday tradition video if you would like to see it.
Well I got started late today because I was so darn excited about getting my original YouTube channel back from 8 years ago that I sat up half the night getting it ready. Boy those videos of my kids when they were younger and life hadn’t kicked them in the butt were the best! I really miss those days.
So in celebration of getting access to it back today’s post is just going to be the link to that channel for y’all to enjoy my kids from their glory days. The videos are from 2009 and maybe 2008 or 2010, I’m not sure about the ones where I didn’t say the date so don’t quote me on that.
Well I was going to start vlogging but it turns out that it’s much harder than I thought.
Did you know how complicated it was? Let me know in the comments.
I now realize that actually recording and editing takes a lot of practice but the weird thing is that it seems like people who have never shown any interest in it are vlogging, or am I wrong about that? Again let me know in the comments.
I tried this morning with my smartphone but the camera angle keeps changing on me and I tried with my old camera that has video capabilities but I got it wet once in the rain and the sound isn’t good on it anymore so both of those are out of the question.
I feel like that I will be able to get my words out better with videos though because I can just whip out my camera and record instead of trying to type and I am not good at typing at all.
If anyone can help me with what type of camera and editing software to use that are both good and easy to use please let me know because I am extremely interested in this.
I will make videos and upload them to My YouTube Channel and I will also post them here on my blog because I absolutely love this blog.
