Preserving Holiday Memories

We are making memories right now. What about you?

How do you capture those memories? Do you have a digital point and shoot camera? Digital videos? Do you use your smartphone?

When my oldest son was born, his birth was captured on a VHS video. As well as his first Fourth of July, Christmas, etc.

Now, 12 years later, we can make movies on devices that are the size of a deck of cards. Or smaller. I think if I broke out a 1990’s video camera my children would laugh and a game of 20 Questions would begin.

If I only had a picture of the old VHS player we had in our living room growing up. It was huge and archaic. And what about that little rewind machine?

All silliness aside, the twins do have an old TV in their room that has a built-in VHS player in it. They have about 20 old VHS movies (Scooby Doo, Jungle Book, Gumby, etc.). I never have to worry about them scratching the movie, but after time they start to drag when we watch them. They do wear out.
