As a gift to his parents for Christmas, Jared edited together old footage from the year after they were first married. I am amazed at how much I've enjoyed this glimpse of their lives as young newlyweds. It's so rare that we are able to see our parent's as anything other than parents, but this video really brought their 'young' personalities to life for me. I can't help but identify with them in ways I never have before.
It was particularly interesting to see how many his mother's mannerisms were exactly the same, only she was a brunette and wore such stylin' clothes! And his father! I never realized that Jared and his brothers got so much of their squirrely-ness from him. I find that endearing.
If only we had film footage of all our ancestors! I can only imagine how enlightening that would be.
