For some reason the video is stopping for me at about 2:25. But if you skip ahead to 2:30 then it'll continue to play from there. Hopefully this is only happening to me and nobody else. Sad

It did some weird visual thing for me. Just a black screen, but audio was going. Then the visual part started up. Was so much fun listening to the beginning of the meeting with 'Little Man'. Lovey dubby

What a great video! Little Man and Big Boy are precious, and I love the way Little Man read my name. Rolling my eyes.

The video's not skipping for me, Dave. No problems with it at all.

All of the winners are rose forum regulars. That's fitting. I do already have the book, but Christmas will be here before you know it, and it's a perfect gift for so many people I know. Smiling

Thank you very, very much, Joanne and Dave!

Trish pointed that out, too! Now, if only she was as obedient as he is, you would have gotten to see her pretty smiling face. Smiling

How awesome! Little Man is growing up so fast and he's such a handsome little fella, such a great helper too. I hope he will continue to want to help in the Not-A-Raffle-Raffle drawings for a long time ... at least until his brother is at the stage where he can take over. By the way ... Big Boy is as cute as a button too! You have a beautiful family and the video's are sure a day brightener!

Oops ... almost forgot to say Congrats to the winners!

Thank you Joannabanana for hosting and for that great book as the grand prize!

Thank you Dave for the 2nd and 3rd prizes of the coffee mugs, the recipients will surely love them! I use one of my ATP coffee mugs every morning and one is still used as a planter. Smiling

No problems with either video here Dave.

Congrats to the winners! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!
Again, thank you Joanna for the generous prize. Dave, thanks for the 2nd & 3rd prizes.

Little man, you are just the cutest thing I've seen on two feet. Lovey dubby You're getting great at ripping open those envelopes & taking out the piece of paper.

Dave is going to have to figure out some cheaper envelopes to use. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

The bonus video of Big Boy was a real treat! I loved his smile there are Dave gave him the "ride". I was just about to post on the baby thread that we need new pictures of Big Boy. We got better than that ---- we got video! Hurray! Hurray!

Trish --- we missed you but it was good hearing your voice & laugh. You need to promise next time we will get to see you though please.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
