I like photos. And I like music. I especially like photos set to music. Yep, I loves me a good slide show. Creating slide shows is one of my favourite things to do with the millions of photos I take. If I could, I would spend my days making slide shows of all of the momentous occasions of our life. You know, birthday parties, weekend getaways, play dates, tooth extractions, trips to the gynecologist, that sort of thing. Unfortunately (fortunately?), I don't have that kind of time on my hands, so I am restricted to only creating a few each year.
I knew when Lilah's best-friend-in-the-whole-wide-world's birthday was coming up that I wanted to give her family a DVD that showed the evolution of our girls' friendship. Lilah has lots of friends, but this little girl holds a very special place in her heart, and the Hubs and I have built a wonderful friendship with her parents. I had an inkling that they might, like me, prove to be total suckers for a good slideshow, so I pulled out all the stops and preyed on the heightened sentimentality that parents typically feel around their children's birthdays. Yep, I had them bawling into their birthday cake leftovers. If I'm going to be a total cheeseball, I'm taking everyone around me down too. 'Cause I'm just a good friend like that.
