AM Talk with Hope and Nana

Hope and I spend a lot of early mornings together. She's accustomed to waking at 6 AM for school so when she has the sniffles or if school is closed she hangs out with me when Mommy leaves for work. Daddy is on the night shift again and doesn't get home until after 8 AM.

Hope and Nana do the morning talk between 6 and 8 AM.

I shot some short videos of our antics - 18 of them to be exact.

You can view any or all or none at MY YOUTUBE PAGE
If you have trouble with the main link try THIS ONE, it should take you to one of  the videos and then you can see the others.
They were shot on November 9

A few screenshots from Nana's Scorcese-like films ...

She is so precious! Love that hair! Is she all daddy or what? ;)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Lovely screenshots of that wee angel, Dianne. But you're going to have to tweak the URL for the YouTube page. When I click on it, it takes me to my own YouTube page. I think if you embed one of the videos, folks will be able to get to the rest of them by clicking on it.. maybe. ;)

I HOPE that you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I got to the videos just fine but my computer is giving me grief and I had to restart. I did get a bunch of them watched (although the counter didn't change...) She is absolutely delightful and I will watch the rest of them later. I have become a subscriber.. Just delightful Both of you. You sound just like I imagined you would.

What a character she looks like, Nana — I think she's learned a lot from hanging out with you. Beautiful photos.

Ha! And why did I imagine you-all talk the same as we do out here? Hope is very cute and very talkative. I subscribed. If you subscribe back, then you will get to see my updates... when I get around to posting a video. I never have, but I'm feeling pretty inspired by your post so maybe soon! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Dianne! Hope your holiday is filled with family, friends and of course, lots and lots of your favorite foods! Feel free to drop by my house on Saturday if you run out of Thanksgiving goodies after your Thursday feast as my family and I will be having our "Thanksgiving" Saturday to compensate for older daughter's work schedule -midnight shift at the hospital on Wednesday as well as Thursday nights! Allow about 4 hours for driving time but we should be eating probably around 4 p.m. and guaranteed there will be more than enough food to go around too! (Like for a small army if things run normally that day!)

Happy Thanksgiving to you, Dianne.

I laughed out loud when I read, "I shot some short videos for you tube, 18 to be exact." Just so you know three is a few, 18 is a….well something else but it is not 'some'.
Hope is for sure a star and the narrator should not tell a little girl a wicked witch is nice. Fun videos and Hope is way to cute.

Granny Annie said...

CrystalChick said...

The videos of Hope are delightful. She's quite precious. I can see how much you enjoy your time together.

OMG I've missed you! Your little lovey Hope is a doll--you must smooch on her cheeks a hundred times a day. Hope you've been well Sweetpea xo
