Figuring out the videos

Wow, does it really take that long to upload videos to youtube?? It took nearly 2 hours to upload a 1.5 minute video...what am I doing wrong?? I have some more learning to do.
Keep in mind these videos were an experiment to see if/how we could actually video with our new camera. I promise we will get better!

Uploading a Movie

Just trying this's Super Bowl Sunday and we just got back from a nice walk outside. I took some video with our camera for the first time...just testing out how it uploads.

Please, please, please ignore my annoying voice :) When I ask Stella to say hello to me she says "hey baby"...hard to hear if you don't know her. She says "hey baby" a lot!

I took 3 short videos. It's taking a looonnng time to upload. Earlier today we were trying to figure out how to watch the Super Bowl online for free. I guess we'll find out in a little bit if we actually can.

**UPDATE** Okay I finally figured out that it was easier for me to upload to Youtube, then put the link in the blog. This post will have one video, but as I type I'm uploading the other two videos to Youtube. While in Youtube I discovered a video I was trying to create waaaayyyy back in October for Kyle's 8th birthday. It's 8 years of Kyle in pictures...
We couldn't figure out a good way to stream the Super Bowl live from the internet, so Tom took the boys to the Hooterbowl in Hustler (about a 4 mile drive down the hill). They had a great time and Kyle and Reeve got to bowl and watch the Packers win the Super Bowl.

Here are the pictures from the walk we had before the game...a much warmer day than today. Do you realize it is -25F with a windchill of -34F as I type...right now!!!! Reeve just happened to leave his Science homework on the bus yesterday, soooo normally our neighbors who teach at his school pick him up in our driveway. Well, Reeve INSISTED that he HAD to ride the bus this morning to get his homework...just HAD to be THE coldest morning of the year for him to wait outside for the bus at 6:50 this morning.

We love our mile walk...and I just found out that walking for a mile at least 3 times a week has been shown to increase the hippocampus, which helps to increase long-term memory :)
