I was aware of a 'secret project' taking place over the last week or so, but I tried to ignore it, not wanting to ruin my own surprise. To be honest I thought maybe they were maybe taking some photos for a card or something, but their idea was far more elaborate.
They wrote and recorded an original song and made a video featuring recreated family photos. It was just so beautiful and so very thoughtful. They did such a great job and included big brother Joe, who contributed to the project remotely, and little brother Freddy too. I am so lucky to have kids who understand the things that make me happy...and nothing makes me happier than them.
Just seeing how much they have all grown, but how the relationship between them is still as close and how their personalities still shine through is just beautiful. I'm definitely going to get involved in more recreations with them and am looking forward to joining in with the posing as we re-imagine precious memories.
Here is the video that they played for me on my birthday :)
