I have always had a special place in my heart for pictures put to song, so this year I was trying to think how I could make this hobby useful.
So, I started a new tradition. This year I made slideshows of the birthday kids life and showed it at their family party. I try to keep them about a minute for each year of their life. I start off by showing birthday, 1 month, 2 month, up to 12 month, then 1 year, 2 years etc.
The kids love seeing themselves grow up, and I keep them short enough that I don't think the family is too bugged.
Today I also started one for the year. I'm going to try to make a "year in review" slideshow to show either on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve.
These also make good things to watch on those boring Sunday afternoons.
Just food for thought...
