Like the Ones I Used to Know




It's December 1st, and I've never felt more ready to revel in the holidays! So, let's get this season started off right, shall we? In lieu of the standard Christmas card/photo combo, our family spent the long weekend putting together this little video for all of you. Hope you enjoy it, and please have yourself a lovely, old fashioned Christmas!

Brooke in WI said...

Came from cjane and my first thought, I can't wait to convince my family to do this. Or die trying. Excellent! Your little ones will treasure this in 20 yrs like I treasure my videos from a long time ago. love it!

guest said...

Oh my goodness. This is hilarious. Love the booty shot. Love the snow angel. Love....every pure second of it. It leaves me with this strange emotion of wanting to cry and laugh at the same time. I need a video like this, starring my own family!

John & Jennifer Savage said...

WOW!! So wow! I of course want to try and won't. But still...

Kiki said...

Oh, Melancholy, I heart you and your brilliant husband and your ADORABLE children. SO creative and fun. Thanks for getting me in the holiday spirit! I have been humming this since I saw it on Monday!

Caitlin said...

I spent most of last night trying to think of ways that I could become as cool and classy as your family. Yet, here I sit unshowered and in sweatpants. So, I apparently failed. I LOOOOVE IT! and your blog!

Summer said...

I have no idea who you are yet I think you are the coolest people around. (I'm a cousin of Emily Foley - does that help?)

Robyn said...

Followed the link from CJ and wow! This is just so cool! Merry Christmas to all of you too!

Miss Anna B said...

Followed the link from CJane and seriously, this is so darn fun and cute!!!!!!! What an awesome thing to do as a family. Can I link it on my blog????

MelancholySmile said...

Wow, behold the power of CJane! I woke up this morning to an inbox full of comments...I'd love to answer all of you individually, but that won't likely happen. I'll leave it at this: Thanks for the praise! Yes, go try this with your families, it's so fun! Yes, link this on your blogs! And no, I'm not always dressed like that. Here I am in gym clothes, making myself go out for a run and wanting to eat shortbread cookies for breakfast... :) Merry Christmas, all!

LyndiLou said...

I followed the link from CJane as well... and this is jUUUs fun! :) Hope you don't mind all of us new friends checking it out! So great!
