Eliza’s Egg Hunt 2012

By April 8, 2012 Eliza, Home Movies

It’s time for the annual Eliza Egg Hunt! The whole affair takes much longer than this video depicts, since E stops for candy breaks constantly along the way – which also makes her VERY hyper by the time it’s over.

This Is Why We Fight

By December 29, 2011 Eliza, Home Movies



Our preschool hipster loves listening to indie rock. After making us play this Decemberists song repeatedly in the car, we sat her down afterwards and asked sing the chorus in front of the camera. She was rather annoyed, which only added to her aloof hipster attitude.

Okay, so I’m late to the game in getting a GoProHD camera, and I finally couldn’t hold out any longer in getting one. I promptly made use of it this weekend with Eliza while tearing up the crazy, rooftop pool in our Miami hotel.

Now that’s what I call a show!

By April 24, 2009 Eliza, Home Movies

Our daughter, Eliza loves grooving during the theme songs to various TV shows. She really gets into 30 Rock, The Office, and The Wire. Well, tonight she took her whole routine up a notch when the Parks & Recreation theme kicked-in. Hilarious! We kept rewinding the show and recording her going berserk to the song, and each video I shot had some awesome, new move she added – this one is my favorite because of the dramatic finishing move.
