Our Dogs Playing

Zoey and Cousin Christmas 2012

I’ve tried to keep a record of these kids as they grow, so precious and time is so fleeting. I missed this 2012, mostly because they were playing hide and seek and I was not motivated. Anyhow, they had the excitement and good cheer of the holiday season propelling them.

Zoey and Cousin Christmas

I managed to catch video each year of the cousins at play until this year. This is Zoey and Cousin Christmas.

Zoey and Cousin Christmas

Each year extended family gets together to celebrate Christmas, and each year Zoey and her cousin play like mad. Zoey’s older, so she had to wait until her cousin could walk before playing, but as soon as he was up, they were off. I did not catch Christmas 2014, the best playig yet, mostly because I was distracted, and they were playing hide and seek with each other, not good video there.

Zoey Foofa Christmas

Zoey Foofa Christmas, Zoey loves foofa, and in 2011 she got a Foofa doll for Christmas. So sweet. She watched Yo Gabba Gabba nearly from birth, and loved all the characters, but especially Foofa.

She still has the Foofa doll these years later, though it has seen better days. Zoey recently did a concert in the living room, and Foofa was, or course, in the audience. Not sure if elmo was there. Anyway, to the innocence and wonder that is childhood, cheers.

Justin Being Justin BW

A black and white version of Justin, or Justin Being Justin BW, he being a part of Claranormal, doing the midget dance at our house in Claremont. This was in about 2008, the original, the BW version was created a few years later. He is family even if he isn’t actually family, so this is going into the family video section.

This was shot by us about 6.5 to 7 years ago as Claranormal’s Justin was visiting the Claremont house. He of course is a funny guy, and he decided to put on a show, doing a midget dance on the table. This is going into our family section because Justin is family after all, even if he is a freak 😀 There are also two other version of this being uploaded, a black and white and an olde tyme version.

Zoey Blows Bubbles

This is a video that’s from maybe 2.5 or 3 years ago as Zoey blows bubbles.  Little Z has always loved to sit at the kitchen island, and this time she had some watered down iced tea. She has always been partial to straws too, and finally discovered what we all do when we’re little, blowing bubbles.

Still to this day we keep a stash of straws here for her just for her drinking pleasure, lol. I remember doing the bubbles thing with milk, and, oh wow, memory just came back, with those old style paper straws. Remember using those on a milk shake? Pure torture.

Frozen Yogurt Vampire

Can frozen yogurt turn a little one into a frozen yogurt vampire? No, of course not, lol.

Frozen Yogurt Vampire

About 4 years ago I had my Vivitar night vision camera out, which shoots normal in light, but automatically goes to black and white night vision when there’s not enough light. Zoey was getting her first taste of frozen yogurt and I was filming it, but enough light got blocked at the critical “first taste/brain freeze” moment, which made it look weird. Z had become a video vampire, lol. That is all. This is simply a saved family video.

Little Zoey Talks

Welcome to the video Little Zoey Talks. This is a video I made of the grand daughter about 4 years ago in which we followed our usual meal ritual. I’d talk to her and she’d talk back in her baby talk. I added captions later.

I wanted Z, from a young age, to know and understand that what she has to say is important, that people will listen to her and take time out to talk with her.  Yeah, well, that worked, now she talks pretty much all the time, lol, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I remember growing up and my European elders, grandpa in particular, saying “Children are to be seen and not heard.” How offensive. Not for Z, she is to be heard. And you know what? Her school principal spent some time with her one day (nothing bad, we were
just late picking her up from school) and told us “In all my years doing this I have never seen a more articulate child. She’s special, and probably going to be some sort of public speaker.”
I have moved where this video is hosted from my YoureOn.net server to YouTube then imported the video in from there, but had trouble making the embed work. This would have sped up our server by not bogging it down, and reduce my internal storage. Lets face it, YouTube is forever.
