Kalena's First Recital

Kalena had her first recital last week. It was a "Reformation Recital" at our church, NorthCreek, and Kalena was the youngest participant.

As I stood on a chair in the back of the room to get a clear shot of my daughter's sweet face... I realized that I was fitting perfectly into the stereotypical "dad with a video camera" role. But, all of that faded away when Kalena spotted me and said with her loudest voice and biggest smile, "There's my Daddy! HI DADDY!!"

Unfortunately, I didn't get that part on camera, but I grabbed a few other clips and threw together a quick video over the weekend. It's crazy how easy it was to do... less than 2 hours.

  1. Oh my goodness, I just watched this at work and was cracking up out loud! My co-workers think I am insane! This is precious!!! She is beautiful!

  2. Justin,
    Perfect video! Perfectly beautiful Kalena! I laughed, cried and felt all warm inside ... almost like I was there! Thanks for making this and posting it here for all to see. We are so lucky to have our wonderful family and I was so pleased with my Grandie Girl and her stage debut at 3 years old!! Way to go, Justin and Jenny. You guys are great parents!
    Love you all,

  3. Some people have told me that they can't view the video on the web. If you have quicktime, you should still be able to go to the link under the video and download the movie and watch it that way.
