We got my son's first Christmas on tape.

2 Colleen S August 16, 2010 at 10:56 pm

One year at Christmas my aunt unbeknownst to us let the tape roll while my moms siblings told stories about their growing up, their parents and grand parents and other assorted relatives. It was so wonderful and candid. It is a family treasure

13 Sonya Allstun August 17, 2010 at 1:13 am

my favorite home video of all times was one of my brother when he was about 6 doing an impersonation of Elvis with a play guitar. It embarrasses him and he turns seven shades of red when he sees it LOL

35 Michael August 17, 2010 at 8:28 am

My favorite video is of the arrival of our three puppies and their first venture into our back yard. We had been raking leaves and the puppies were running around temporarily disappearing into the mounds and popping back out in every which direction - it was one of those 'priceless' moments! :)

36 Geoff K August 17, 2010 at 8:34 am

My favorite home video has to be the one my parents made when my sister and I were around three years old and they had a family friend dress up as Santa Claus and visit our home on Christmas Eve. We still watch that video every year and get a huge laugh out of how terrified, then overjoyed, we were at the unexpected visitor. It's become a family tradition to relive that classic moment. Thanks!

My favorite home video we have is my son taking his first steps back and forth to and from his big sisters arms. All three of them have the best smiles and the cutest giggles on that one.

40 K. Renee Kawcak August 17, 2010 at 9:21 am

I would take videos of my 4 and 5 year old at their school events and take video of my 15 year old volleyball games. Also, of my 3 grandkids playing and learning all the "new" things in the world.

41 gloria mckellar August 17, 2010 at 10:11 am

We have my twin sons when they were little guys playing together in the sandbox and dumping sand on their heads.
