This year I asked my children to be resourceful and make something homemade for Christmas. That they did – using only iPhones and a laptop for their video camera.
Their gift, a homemade music video, was the most amazing
spectacular, and best Christmas present I ever got in my entire life!
Inside there was a flash drive in the shape of Tweety Bird. When I put the flash drive into my computer, a video started to play that made me laugh, cry, gasp, squeal and scream.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing!!! I was absolutely stunned by the resourcefulness and creativity of this hilarious, kind, fun, heart-warming video that my kids filmed only with an iPhone and a Mac laptop. Their talent and sense of humor shines through like superstars – in spite of the fact that they were just goofing off.
Each child wrote and performed their own parts. Christian (Megashark) wrote and produced the music, and Tim edited it. I can never, ever, ever describe the “bursting of my buttons” as my dad used to say when I made him proud. This gift made me so proud that it left a fire of joy in my heart. This is absolutely every mother’s dream.
I hope all kids one day give a video tribute to their moms like this.
Once again I count my blessings. Once again, I feel like the luckiest woman on earth.
And there’s no doubt about it. I definitely have the coolest kids in the world!
