2013 Year in Review

It seems that every year a television station or a reporter will do a news story about what happened in the past year.  I follow that same path by posting something at the beginning of each year, or at the end of the year depending on how much time I have.  So, now that I have some time on a Saturday at the beginning of the year, I'll review my posts, youtube vids, and blogs to give you the best of the best for the year.

Top YouTube videos of 2013

There is no question that my best YouTube video of the year is when I was able to get my family together for Family Home Evening and do a Harlem Shake Video.  We had a blast putting it together and each of the family members "went all in".  Unfortunately, I had to be the lone dancer at the beginning of the video which was a little embarrassing but I wanted to make sure everyone danced without reservation so it would be an epic vid for out family.  Make sure you turn up the resolution on the video so it doesn't look so blurry.

Ok, the second most epic video of 2013 probably should have been in first place but it didn't get as many Youtube hits as the first place video.  Second place goes to Coby's mission call.  I took a video of my son Coby opening his mission call and finding out he will be serving as an LDS Missionary in the Tijuana Mexico Mission.

Third place video goes to a video I shot while at the Idaho State Tennis Tournament.  Andy played well at this tournament and the men's team received a 4th place award which hasn't been done in a long long time.

Now for my blog posts of 2013.  I don't know why, but I haven't felt the impulse to write much this year.  I don't know if it is because I don't feel like anyone is reading it or that I have filled my time with other things.  In any case, I only posted 10 times in 2013 so there isn't much to choose from.  I looked on my Google Analytics page and found that our Harlem Shake Video blog post was the most popular so I chose another blog post to be the best.  That post was of my report on dropping off our son Coby to the MTC.

So, I think that is about it for 2013.  Hopefully 2014 will bring more blog posts and more YouTube videos.  Happy New Year.
