Today was my day off, and although I’m still struggling to keep it all together with painful eczema-stuff happening all over my hands, I had a really fun time getting out with the family and filming some goofy video stuff for this weekend’s upcoming talent show.

What follows is a video that we filmed four years ago with a special surprise ending for that year’s event; we used this little film to announce to our church-family that we were pregnant with our fourth child, Mikella.  Check out the girls’ reaction when we told them the news…

(sniff, sniff)  That’s a classic… and the girls are all so small!  If you can hear it, at the end I say something like, “Don’t tell anyone… we’re going to announce it at the talent show…”  So fun!

What will this year’s Shoup family movie be all about?  Well, I guess you’ll have to come to the show and see.  It starts at 6:30 PM this Sunday night.  See you there!
