One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

movie time!

It's too late for words, but I did make a movie about our Easter Day. Keep in mind that this is only our little digital camera, which does movies on the side, so no cinematography awards. We haven't yet worked a real camcorder into the budget. Here it is! I'll post with pictures soon, for those without a high-speed connection.

Very very nice. Looks like you folks had a good day. The music was a great touch, too (with proper credits and everything).

We should all be thankful for the distractibility of angry babies!

That was WAY too cute, Moreena. The titles are what really made it a masterpiece.

Thanks for making me laugh this morning!

Great movie! Well edited, the music fit perfectly and helped give it that big-time production experience. Very impressive quality for a digicam. Gotta get a bigger memory stick so i can try that out with mine. Hilarious ending (whistle)... loved the expression on the little one's face when the neighbor dog came out.

Very cute movie. Had my 2 kids mesmorized--my oldest full of questions: why is that girl sitting on the grass? Why is it only showing her arm and not her head? What is that in her basket?

I think my favorite moment was "I found another one. What color is it? Gweeeen!"

Thanks, all!

Ocelot--I only have a 128 MB, so you don't need anything too large to do little short things. Yes, I've been overall impressed with the ability of the camera, although if there's no bright daylight you can forget about the movie function working at all. And the lack of image stabilization is a bit of a bummer.
