Hope Makes A Movie

I guess it's no secret that I love taking photos of my granddaughter Hope. Now that she's walking and (kinda) talking I feel the need to capture the action.

I got a Flip Camcorder on September 2nd.

On September 3rd I shot 27 videos.

Don't get scared. I'm only sharing one of them and it's just a little over a minute long.

UPDATE: So uploading directly to the blog didn't work and linking to My Flipshare Channel didn't work so I just gave up and put the video on Youtube.

BUT!!!! Whenever I embed a Youtube video my comments disappear for me and for many others so I put the video in as a ...

... SEPARATE POST RIGHT BELOW

OY OY OY


I'm sharing this at

Photobucket



since it's pretty obvious that Hope Makes Me Happy

oh - Hope's Dad is also in the video but don't tell him

There's no Hope - password needed :(

Ron said...

Ooooo...oooo....I'm so excited to see this video, however they keep asking me for my email address and passward. I've tried setting up an account to view your video, but it won't allow me.

Am I doing something wrong?

I'll stop back later to see what you say.

I can't wait to see Hope's movie!

X ya's!

Linda Reeder said...

Yep. Same problem. "Flipware is for private viewing."

Jessica said...

What a cutie!!!!

Kitty said...

Hmm, yes, Flip is being snooty - Even flip, you might say.

So you must give me your full review of the Flip situation - I was planning on getting one this week for the memorial (I told Wyetta I'd film it for her) but Mike seems to think if we just get a bigger memory card for our camera that'll be the same...Opinions???

Can't wait to see Hope!! (It seems like maybe you have to give them our email addresses to share it??)

Kelly Lund and Kids said...

Oh Cute cute hair!! I love it!! Yay for Hope!!

Sue said...

This grandma has a Flip, too. I am loving mine!

=)

PS. Cute little granddaughter!

SORRY ABOUT THE TECH ISSUE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO GET ON THE SITE!!

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS SO YOU CAN GET ON WITHOUT A PASSWORD

Daryl said...

I have posted video from YouTube but not my own .. tho I think that the new Blogger editing template had a link that you can upload through ... its worth a try .. she is soooo delicious

Reb said...

Love the still, I'll check back later to see if you have the tech problem sorted.

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

Post it here...just upload to youtube..

Jay Simser said...

Love it. Thanks for figuring out how to share.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Hooray! So happy you found a solution, I would have hated to miss darling Hope's premier!

She is just too delightful.

DJan said...

Um, I just watched a cute little minute-long video of Hope, I think. Anyway, is this what you're trying to show us? She is adorable! I hope she finds her Q...

Jinksy said...

Delightful! lol :)

Micky-T said...

What makes you guys think "I" want to get the Q anyway?

She is a real doll! I don't think we could get bored seeing her run around.

kenju said...

What a doll! She knows just how to make you laugh.

My hair looked like hers until I was three.

Linda Reeder said...

She's learning to mind her P's and Q's, but obviously 'over there' is not so specific. Very cute and funny.

Kassie said...

Very cute video. Graham and I watched it together. :)

Hilary said...

So how come I can't find it? :/

Hilary said...

Doh! Nevah mind. ;) I just did.. what a doll. :)

Ron said...

Okay, I just finished eating my dinner and came over to see if the video was up and it WAS!

YAAAAAAAAHOOOO!

I know this may sound premature, but I seriously think Hope has a huge future in the movies. She's so photogentic and animated!!

Adorable video, Dianne. And I loved hearing you and your son's NY accent. It made made me miss NYC!

Thanks for sharing, dear lady!

And please tell Hope I so enjoyed seeing her!

((( Hope the Star )))

leigh said...

Oh my lord...she is a love. Thanks for linking up today!!!

pink dogwood said...

too cute for words - my daughter and I were laughing out loud :)

Frank Baron said...

What a cutie! Gotta admit though, when she was hunting for that toy she put me in mind of me before my morning coffee. :)

ds said...

She is tooo cute!

Akelamalu said...

Oh just look at her - she's a doll! Your son's dishy too. ;)

jabblog said...

So, so delightful :-)

Daryl said...

Fantastic ... she is so cute and so is daddy

nitebyrd said...

She is just adorable!

Cherie said...

That's wonderful! If there were thought bubbles, I could hear Hope thinking, "What's with the Q's. I don't need any Q's." :)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Adorable!

Our granddaughter just put a very short video of our great-grandsons on her facebook page. (The oldest one was singing the ABCs and said "G is for the GGs -- that's us, the great-grandparents). We were so proud!!

Anyway, oh forgive me for bragging -- and Hope is adorable.

It would be nice for you if you can figure out an easy way to post more videos. Since it appears you're as good with the video cam as you are with the still one! Smart Grandma!

Linda said...

That darned elusive "Q" - it'll get ya every time!

Hope is just too cute for words and I love the fact that her father interacts with her like he does. Fathering has come a long ways since the 50's and 60's, hasn't it?

More! More!

Reb said...

Wow, she is so cute and smart! Who needs Q anyway, well, except for Bond ;)

Michael Manning said...

Cute!! :D)

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I am in awe of how big and grown-up HOPE is....This is so very dear, my dear Dianne. I understand you being in love with Hope and with the Flip Video, too....ADORABLE, ADORABLE!!!

Nessa said...

Hope is so very adorable.
