  1. Love the Hobbit! I liked it much better than the Lord of the Rings books. You know the movie’s coming out the end of this year, right? And awesome job with the stop animation. I went to film school, so I know how much time and patience it takes. It took me two 10 hour days of filming and three full days editing when I made my first 10 minute black and white film with an 16 mm camera. But it’s so much fun to look back at it when you’re done!

  2. I love it! So many wonderful things to be thankful for:) The girls (and cousins) immediately surrounded the computer when I clicked on Kei’s video. She received five thumbs up from our family!!

  3. I love this post, and I agree that the last photo is magnificent. It doesn’t get much better than chocolate cake, The Hobbit, and doggie kisses. 🙂

  4. That video is very cute! Davan was into stop action animation a while back and I agree – it takes much more patience than I have to do it!

    The eye photo is stunning. I love it.

  5. I love that last photo! Is that Kei’s eye??

    I can not believe you said “neighbor ladies”!!!! My best friend and I have a joke since high school…and I literally cracked up when I saw that you typed that!!!! lol. The story is: we were in high school, on the phone and my grandmother called. My mom was out walking with the neighbors (she used to do that to keep in shape). But my grandmother said, “In the darkness? Alone? with the neighbor ladies?” And I got back on the phone with my friend and we CRACKED UP. This is still hilarious to us, though you probably have to be US to find it funny. We write it on each other’s fb walls. so if you ever see it on mine, now you know…

    Thank you for linking up! I also LOVE Hmama!
