Sweetheart Dinner and Dance

For Valentine’s Day, Darrel and I attended the Stake Sweetheart Dinner and Dance.  We had a great time.  They had someone there taking pictures.  Here are a few of us:

Darrel played DJ for the adult dance and then the next night for the youth dance.  That’s what this picture is from.

13th Article of Faith

Laynee has an amazing memory.  She memorized the 13th Article of Faith, which is quite long.

Sometimes I wish I was 4 again…

so I could dance and not care what I looked like.  Isn’t she adorable?

McKinley Singing

Here is McKinley trying to sing “I Am a Child of God.”  I was trying to help her but she kept shushing me.  The song is not recognizable but she was cute just singing gibberish. 

More video downloading issues

Okay, so I finally got a video downloaded using  Now every pervert in the world shouldn’t have free access to videos of my kids.  I “shared” it with my blog and because of the way my blog was set up, only the left 2/3rds of the video would show. It completely cut Laynee out.  So I had to reset up my entire blog.  Not sure sharing my videos is worth all this hassle. 

Laynee’s Preschool Christmas Program 2009

Laynee’s preschool Christmas program was so cute, I had to post it.  I thought the kids did a great job with the singing, actions and also holding still. 


So I spent a bunch of time trying to figure out the easiest and fastest ways to post videos to my blog.  I use Windows Live Writer to do blog posts and there’s an option to post videos using Live Writer.  When I clicked the icon, it told me that the site it uses is “” to post videos.  I thought I could just download the videos, mark them “private” on the youtube website and then every sicko wouldn’t be able to see my kids’ videos.  Well, that worked except no one else could see the videos either.  I’ve now deleted the videos from youtube and also deleted the posts on my blog with the videos in the them.  I’m back to square one.  Anyone have any good ideas on how to quickly post videos to a blog?
