Jumping for Joy

Before viewing video, be sure to scroll down and pause the music!

Thanks to our family who took a 'leap of faith' at Olivia's birthday party.

*I hope you all have been enjoying the video. I always get these crazy ideas/visions and my wonderful husband always makes them happen. So, thank you, Ryan, for putting the video together. I wonder who has watched this video the most times? Who can't get this song out of your head? The song is from one of my childhood records called Animals by Candle with the Agapeland Singers. It sells on ebay for about $40.00, so it must be difficult to get nowadays.

Don, Shelley and Izzy said...

We LOVE it! What a great video... thank you guys! She is such a fun bouncy girl!!

Cristi said...

That was entertaining. I am sure if I had known all the "hoppers" it would have been even more so. Cute!

What a funny bunch of Happy Kangaroos! The kids were cracking up watching the video! Lots of fun. Although I have to say that seeing everyones expressions when you asked them to jump was almost as funny. I am impressed that you got dad to jump! Keep hopping Olivia...'cause I never going to get that song out of my head.

Oh my gosh, that cracked me up. Jade is using her jumper now, too, and she laughs her head off just like Olivia!

I have some video of it, but have no idea how to post video. How do you do it?

Second question: How did you edit the song in, through the Microsoft Movie Maker?

And last question...I love the music...who was singing?

Sorry to ask so many questions, but I have meant to ask you how to do a video for awhile now.

Lin- I just come up with the crazy ideas and my husband makes it happen. He did use Windows Movie Maker, however. I'll try to remember to email you more specifics.

The music is from one of my old records growing up called Animals. . .terrific songs. I just don't think they make children's cds quite that good anymore. I'll see if I can still find it somewhere.

That is one of the cutest videos I have ever seen! I love how all of your family members jumped for joy too...priceless:)

Amanda said...

That is thee ca'utest video!!! Things that were going through my mind as I watch it....1)"That girls got some strong leg muscles! Go Olivia!" 2)"You definately got your money's worth out of THAT toy." 3)"Wow, those people are really getting into the jumping" 4) and lastly... "If I was to jump like that I'd pee my pants!" Too cute! Oh, and who is that song by? I'm always looking for cute new kids songs.... Maybe I should try the jumperoo for myself! slim these legs down....;) Have a great day!!!

Amanda said...
