Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

This past weekend we unpacked our holiday decor, turned up the Christmas tunes, put on our Santa hats, and got our camera set up for our annual Christmas tree video. Annual is a relatively new revelation. We had so much fun making the video last year (inspired by the folks over at Young House Love), we thought we’d try our hand at it again with a few changes. But, enough of my yappin’, why don’t you see for yourself.

The video was shot with Mr. Knight’s Nikon D60 with a fisheye lens he received for Christmas last year from Gator Mom and Gator Dad. My favorite part is the ending, I loves it. Makes me smile, smile, smile. :)

Since this wasn’t our first rodeo, we knew a little of what to expect and had a little fun with the snapshots. If you view in full screen you will see some high fivin’, a thumbs up, silly faces, and a cameo by our newest family member, Pepper.

I love putting up our tree every year because it is something we do together. I guess you can say this little video is now a tradition for us.

Do you have any holiday tasks you look forward to each year because you get to complete the task with the help of your significant other? Wrapping gifts? Putting up lights? Shoveling the sidewalk (for you northerners, lol)? I’d love to hear!

Check out last year’s video!
