This weekend, a letter arrived in the mail for Hoss. It was from his great-grandparents.
They were responding to the fact that Hoss has been sleeping in a really small chair, all curled up into a tight ball so he can fit. They sent a letter to Hoss explaining that there are better sleeping options for dogs, including nice, comfy dog beds. They sent pictures of multiple options.
I decided to use my digital camera (just a regular Canon point-and-shoot) to take a video of myself opening the letter and reading it to Hoss.
Then I popped my SD card into my computer, loaded the video into Picassa, and then uploaded the video to YouTube. Finally, I sent everyone in the family a link to the video.
The whole process was quick and painless. It made me realize: How cute would it be to make an engagement announcement video and e-mail the link out to friends and family? Or even a Save-the-Date.
Of course not everyone on the invite list is tech-savvy and not all electronic options will work for everyone. But it's easy enough to provide a phone call for those folks.
Has anyone seen this done? Does anyone have any links to share?
