Let the Season Begin!!



Happy December 1st! To kick off the holiday season, I offer you this: the eagerly anticipated 4th annual Foster Family Christmas Video!

Once again, in lieu of Christmas cards, we spent Thanksgiving weekend creating a family video 'greeting' instead. It's become one of our favorite traditions. In fact, I'm not sure it would feel like Christmas if we didn't spend at least one day vacuuming fake snow out of the rug! Check in next week for some behind-the-scenes photos. ;)

Merry Christmas!

Sigh. Swoon. Sigh again.

It really does make the season more jolly when I watch your family's video! 2011 didn't disappoint! Fave moments:

You planting a seriously nice smooch on Mr. Foster.

The peace sign falling = reality of peace in my home.

Red lipstick + glitter shoes.

Pretty much everything Little Miss C does.

Your family's Christmas cards are now definitely one of the highlights of the holiday season! They're fantastic!

Oh.My.Goodness! That was so darling and creative.

I'm friends with your SILs in WA and I feel like through them I sort of know you (I know, weird) but seriously, I love reading your blog - so real, funny, creative... etc.

Thanks for the fun video!

You guys are so awesome! So much talent. Your kids are going to cherish these movies for the rest of their lives, what a treasure.

Thanks for getting me into the holiday spirit :)

What a perfect way to welcome December! I've been following your blog for a few years and your amazing videos are one of my favorite parts of Christmas. Hope your family had some great moments creating it.

C says "they were good at that song!" Tober says "it is really really cool" I say that Baby is to die for, although I also think Alfred looks alot like him :) Love when L drops the Peace and looks at it quizzically. You guys are aweosome.

Eating snowy cotton
Glitter shoes
Jingle pause
Red lipstick kiss
Big movie kiss in the middle

These are a few of my favorite things.

I too sigh with my sis, the Dragonfly.

Jennifer said...

Bravo! I've enjoyed your family holiday videos from year one and this year was lovely just like the rest. Love it!

Lindsay said...

Another year that doesn't disappoint! Always love the videos. Can't wait to see how LONG it took to make all that snow! You are so creative.

The Queen Vee said...

I agree with Apis and Dragonfly and add, you get two thumbs up from me.

Your Christmas video card is the perfect way to start the month of December. I'm visiting with my youngest son who just became the father of 4 girls, the 3 older girls watched this years Christmas video and then wanted to watch all of your previous videos.

I could never pull off red lipstick but you my dear CAN!

hAha said...

Kim said...

I look forward to this every year (is that weird since I never comment?). Another amazing video.

Kristen Papac said...

As usual, you guys didn't disappoint! I had a smile on my face the whole time. Great job. Your family is adorable!

JeanetteH said...

You guys give me goosebumps! Just when I think I can't adore you all anymore! :)
Which lipstick are you using? I've been in the market for a fabulous red for ages. ;)

Merry Christmas!

Fabulous! My husband had been asking for a couple of week if you'd put up your new video yet, so I was happy to share it with him. Your videos are so clever and truly bring cheer to so many folks..thanks for sharing with us!

Miggy said...

I think this might be my favorite one yet.

Cotton balls suspended on fishing line? Brilliant! And I'll probably steal that idea. Just a heads up.

LOVE when you and J bust out the dance moves...love your make up, love the glitter, the snow, everything.

Another home run. Uh-mazing!

Kara @ June & Bear said...

Amazing. I love your videos so, so much. I'm thinking the cotton balls on fishing line might make an appearance in our holiday photo.

Kelly Mo said...

I love this year's video! Again, I wish I were half as creative as you! Well done!

mosey (kim) said...

Oh, I look so forward to your family video. Best wishes for peace and joy this holiday season, you talented family, you.

willtherebecake said...

Wow, your videos are incredible! Love it!

Meghan Elaine said...

Found this on odeedoh- and oh my word it's the cutest ever! You are such a clever and adorable family! Thanks for sharing such great cheer :)

Em said...

Once again my husband and I watched this together because we knew it would be good and we were right. He said, "Wow, they're growing up." so seriously as if we know your children. But it's true, and that's one reason why these videos are so fun. And soooooo creative! 800 cotton balls!!!

I echo Apis's sentiments as far as favorite things go. Loved it all. Well done.

LisAway said...

LOVED IT!! Of course! I can't believe how big Little Miss C is getting! You girls looked so cute singing back up. I just love all the touches. And, as always the little hints of surprise or worried reactions from the kids are my favorite parts.

Aaron's favorite part was when the older kids were rubbing the tinsel into the baby's hair. So funny! :)
