What I Love Most About My Family

A little while ago we entered a competition where you had to make a short video saying or showing what you love most about your family.

I actually found this surprisingly hard, I mean, how do you express those kinds of feelings? I love everything about them. They are my world, my life, my raison d’être. How do I choose what I love most?

I asked the question of my kids. They also found it quite difficult. My youngest especially, who can be quite expressive, was suddenly quite lost for words. I think we probably caught him in a bad mood – he’s very “all or nothing”.

However, we kept it light and found the words. We made the video, and suddenly the kids thought it was fun and absolutely fabulous. We didn’t win the competition (probably not original enough), but my eldest has nagged me ever since to share the video, as he was so proud of it.

So here it is – some of the things, at least, that we love most about our family (Daddy didn’t feature as he was busy, but we know he loves us all too!)

      Thanks Catie, it’s nice to pause and look back at things now and again.

  3. That’s a lovely video and I love how brave and adventurous your boys are too – I don’t think I could do half of the things they were doing on the first part of the video – I’d be too scared! Love all the holiday photos and the ones of you just having fun together too. Thanks for linking up to #FamilyFun 🙂

    Aw what a lovely video! They are really daring, he jumped off that high ladder onto the punch bag (or whatever it was), never seen that before! And their responses are really sweet. Thanks so much for sharing with #StayClassy!

      Thank you. I know, I couldn’t do that jump! They call it the ‘leap of faith’ – crazy is what I call it!!

  7. This is fantastic, sod the competition that is a very special video. Gorgeous kids..I asked my son what he loves about our family and he looked thoughtful and said we all love cake…#fortheloveofblog

  10. How lovely to make a video and you’re right, how on earth do you express that in words. Perhaps I would have chosen ‘unconditional’?… #fortheloveofblogs

  11. Love it! Your saying they make you really proud has to be the nicest compliment for children to hear. Love your sons’ outlook and them focusing on the family being fun and adventurous. #ftmob
