Happy Halloween & We've Been Vlogging!

Happy Halloween!

I hope you're having lots of fun today on this silly, fun holiday!

The girls got to dress up yesterday for school and had fun with their glow-in-the-dark PJs last night 
(I loved this glow-y picture we got!)

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then you'll know that we've been playing with video this week! We put up two vlogs and one short little face paint tutorial (if Vlogs aren't your thing, you might think this face paint video is cool ;)

We're going to try vlogging for a little while because we think it could be a really fun way to document what we're up to and get memories recorded.  If you follow along with those on youtube, we'd love for you to leave us a comment there or give us a "thumbs up" so we know that someone's watching! ;)

Here are the videos we put up this week:

If you'd like to take a look at our first vlog, you can click this link: Who's Excited?! to view it on YouTube or you can watch it below:

Here's the little time-lapse video of Talia's face paint: Easy, Pretty Spiderweb Face Paint

And this is our most recent vlog, from the couple of days before Halloween: Practicing for Halloween

Hope you have a fabulous day today!

  1. I'm scared to start vlogging but at the same time I feel that it would be right up my alley (I'm a chatterbox). Thanks for sharing!

    1. I've seen some of the other videos you've done & I think you've done a great job, Randa!

  2. I'm the same as Randa... I'm terrified to start vlogging but yours are SO GOOD! Your daughter's face paint is incredible. Nicely done!

  3. Seriously, your family is absolutely beautiful. I haven't had time to dedicate to vlogging, but my 6 year old wants to have her own YouTube channel! She is obsessed with tutorials and all things DIY, baking, cooking, and crafting!

    1. Aw thanks Christine :) haha it is so funny how our kids are so familiar with youtube "culture" when it didn't even exist when we were kids! It makes me feel like a "dinosaur"!

  4. Great videos! I absolutely love your spiderweb face paint! You need to keep vlogging! You're doing a great job!!

  5. So fun! I love those glow in the dark pajamas -- what a fun way to make a memory.

    1. I love them too! :) I thought it was so fun to capture the glow in a photo :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment- I love reading them! :)
