a milinovich family christmas, 2016

one of my favorite Christmas traditions as a dad is the annual Christmas video we have made for the past 9 years now.  it is such a joy for me to put these together and watch my way through them, like a digital "ghost of Christmas past," walking me through the better part of the last decade.  directly below is this year's addition to the lineup, set to Pentatonix' "That's Christmas to Me."  the video begins with some ad libbing by Quinton, which is happening most of the time.  this advent,  he's been very concerned about the fact that the Bible never mentions a donkey in the story of Joseph and Mary traveling to Bethlehem.  so he decided to sing about it.  that's pretty normal in our house.  singing, dancing, merry-making: that's Christmas to us!

Milinovich Family Christmas, 2019

merry Christmas, yinz guys.  we've been marking our advent journeys with an annual video now for the last twelve years!  for this latest installment, we used the Tractors' version of "Run, Run Rudolph," as a metaphor for all of our running around, and i hope it shows that we've had a real blast this year, preparing for Christmas.  you'll see scenes from getting our tree, making cookies, concerts, impromptu dance sessions, making snowflakes, and much more.  enjoy. 

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day.
