Before I get to Grandparent's Day, I wanted to remind everyone about the Shutterfly giveaway. I will be picking someone on Monday so don't forget to get your entry in!
Today is Grandparent's Day, which I now know thanks to tv channels like Sprout. I had no idea there was a Grandparent's Day but now that I do I felt bad not acknowledging it (even though I think it's just a holiday made up by Hallmark to sell more cards). I wanted to do something special for them but I also wanted it to come from Abby.
My first thought was a one of those HUGE cards and have her paint or color inside. Unfortunately, I don't think they make those cards for Grandparent's Day because I searched and came up empty. I was stumped... whatever I did had to make it to them for tomorrow (or Monday at the latest). Since her Nonno (my dad) lives 3.5 hours away and her Grammy and Gramps live 9 hours away this was going to be impossible by mail. So... I thought about an e-card.
From there the idea spun into a video! Yup, my wheels work.... they just squeak a lot. I have to say I love my MAC!! I never made a video before and although it was tricky, it was possible. After about 3 hours, here's my final project. I hope you enjoy it!
By the way, she's laughing at herself on the screen. She finds herself hysterical!
