She is so patriotic.
Annie’s Favorite Maddie Video
A Weekend To Remember
From Annie To Mommy
July 9th, 2010 at 12:08 am
You guys are brilliant. Think your Dad Heather has missed his vocation in life. Should have been an actor!!
Love the way Annabel coos at the fireworks.
July 9th, 2010 at 12:10 am
Absolutely adorable! Great job Annabel! I just love your videos!
July 9th, 2010 at 12:11 am
July 9th, 2010 at 12:16 am
Love the way the whole family piles in to help out!
July 11th, 2010 at 6:12 pm
You guys crack me up
July 9th, 2010 at 12:21 am
Please try to be a little more dorky.
I just… I just want to see if it’s humanly possible.
July 9th, 2010 at 12:54 am
That was freaking CUTE! I love hoping over here on fridays to see what funny video you have up!
keep up the great work! Annabel is a HUGE star!
July 9th, 2010 at 1:07 am
HA HA HA!!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!
that video was so awesome.
I woke up today in a really horrible mood, and you guys have just totally made my day! thanks!
July 9th, 2010 at 1:23 am
You two are a riot and Annie is absolutely fabulous!
July 9th, 2010 at 2:29 am
You… I mean ANNABELl is a good singer! She’s so adorable and I love her cute, chubby cheeks! What a fun family you have. Love it!
July 9th, 2010 at 2:34 am
Just watched this -several times – with my 9 yr old daughter, she loves it and just thinks Annie is THE cutest baby ever. We love the hot dog eating contest with Annie looking adorable covered in sauce … Soooo funny. Fantastic to see all the family involved, easy to see why Maddie picked you guys to spend her lifetime with. You truly honour her by living and not just merely existing.
July 9th, 2010 at 2:36 am
Your family is fantastic. Should totally become actors (if they aren’t already).
I’m still a bit in shock that every single one of them agreed to be in it! I have enough trouble getting my family to do that, and they really ARE actors!
Are you entering the oscar race?
July 9th, 2010 at 2:37 am
That is so cool! I love how she does all her own stunts The look on her face for the fireworks is a classic.
And Heather – great singing!
July 9th, 2010 at 2:46 am
I think it’s so great that you are doing these cute videos — what fun Annabel will have when she’s older, watching all the funny stunts and hearing the “voice-overs” for herself and Rigby, and just the imagination and fun in it all. I can see her showing these videos to her own children one day Maybe by that time you and Mike will have made a full-featured film, who knows!
I thought Uncle Kyle was halarious …how he threw his hot dog when he lost the contest. So funny! Your family is great!
July 9th, 2010 at 2:57 am
Happy Foruth of July ANNABEL… I love it that the whole family enjoys making these videos!
July 9th, 2010 at 3:07 am
(1) Heather, er, I mean Annabel, you missed your calling as a singer–what a voice!
(2) Mike cracks me up with his facial expressions! You can tell he loves it!
(3) Love that the rest of the family is in on it!
(4) Rugby’s bikini? Sexy!
(5) Rugby’s floating without his bikini bottom? Scandalous…
(6) I wuv Annabel, cutest baby eva!
(6) One last note– girlfriend, your family is full of some good lookin’ menfolks. =)
July 9th, 2010 at 3:21 am
You guys are so creative–love it! Thanks for the Friday morning treat.
July 9th, 2010 at 3:27 am
Pleasantly impressed with that beautiful singing voice Annabel! When is your audition for American Idol?
July 9th, 2010 at 3:41 am
Yet another Friday masterpiece. Love it!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 3:46 am
HEATHER SPOHR. Can I please be your agent? Please? Your voice is utterly amazing. Goosebump city. When do you cut an album? Do you write your own songs? Mate, I am a hit predictor … ask my sisters. I think I just discovered you. You’re a superstar. Do you have X-Factor there?? When are you auditioning for American Idol?? YOU WOULD WIN.
July 9th, 2010 at 3:49 am
Looks like the male side of the family are eating pigglets…
Love the sequence with the ooh and aah on the fireworks…
Well done Annabel! Nice hot dog contest…
July 9th, 2010 at 3:51 am
The singing voice sounds like Rhema Marvanne, a seven or nine year old with a beautiful singing voice…
July 9th, 2010 at 3:53 am
Hard to tell who is singing, it could be Annabel… My hearing aid is not working today!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:05 am
I loved it! She is so cute in her floaty! And Rigby’s bathing suit…excuse me…Rigby’s bikini is HOTT! Keep the videos coming!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:07 am
I check out your blog first thing in the morning, and I must say that watching this adorable video was the perfect way to start off my day. I could look at Annabel’s cute little chubby cheeks all day long. What a pumpkin!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:14 am
Adorable! My favorite part is when Uncle Kyle throws his hotdog in frustration because he didn’t win! HAHAHA
(((Hugs))) from here!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:15 am
LOL…you guys are a riot! I love to see “happy” here.
July 9th, 2010 at 4:24 am
Hahah, that was too cute!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:25 am
Um wait, you can sing too!?
July 9th, 2010 at 4:26 am
July 9th, 2010 at 4:31 am
OMG You guys are too funny!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:36 am
Annabel already has the family on her movie payroll. Way to go, Annabel! What a little superstar!
Are you watching Big Brother? The new series just started last night. Whew hoo!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:44 am
Oh,,,this was really great!!!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:45 am
Love the single curl on top!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:48 am
I haven’t read the comments yet, so, I will guess and say I am alone, (but secretly hope not-er not so secretly!) but I cried happy tears. This rocked. And Her voice, I wonder if we will all have crazy voice shock when she does her own or if she will sound eerily close to the voice you have given her? And I love fridays now. Never used to because being home 24/7 for the most part I got used to weeknight tv. now i cheer on fridays. Thanks for that!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:50 am
you guys are hilarious!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:53 am
Wow. Your family members are such good sports. I’m pretty sure my father would look at me like I had grown a third eye if I asked him to star in such a production.
July 9th, 2010 at 4:55 am
You guys are too stinkin creative!!! LOVE IT!!!
Love, Love, Love the videos! Rigby always busts out a great part. Whether Rigby is in a boiling pot of water or sporting a two piece bikini, you can always count on Rigby for a good laugh! I can’t believe how good the singing was Heather! That was so impressive even in a baby voice. I think after hear that, Mike should let you sing at any concert you want!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:57 am
That was hilarious. A great way to start my Friday morning…
July 9th, 2010 at 5:00 am
July 9th, 2010 at 5:11 am
omigosh that is the funniest and the cutest thing I ever saw. I love how your dad was even way into the hotdog eating contest. And I am so impressed that ‘Annabell’ is able to sing the whole anthem in her baby voice.
You guys are so much fun!
July 9th, 2010 at 5:23 am
So cute! And your voice is amazing.
July 9th, 2010 at 5:26 am
That was the cutest darn thing………..
July 9th, 2010 at 5:29 am
You make my daughters very happy with these Annabel videos.
July 9th, 2010 at 5:50 am
BRILLIANT. (as usual)
July 9th, 2010 at 5:59 am
Way to SMOKE the competition on the hotdog eating contest, Annabel!
I especially loved your rendition of the star spangled banner. I predict agents will be knocking down your door with recording contracts!
Masterfully done guys, loved it!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:05 am
HILARIOUS. Loved it!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:07 am
That was awesome!
Loved the hot dog eating contest!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:10 am
You guys are so funny! Great job!!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:17 am
Ya’ll are too funny! I love it!
Love that the entire family joined in without a hitch!
Thanks for sharing!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:19 am
Wow! Rigby is one stylin’ dog!
I’m curious to know if you guys plan these things ahead of time or if they just come to you on the spot and you get everyone involved… either way, I’m LOVING them!
…and I agree with Mindy, if that’s how you sing, Mike should have NO complaints at concerts!!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:27 am
I am, uh, IMPRESSED at how well Mike was able to shove that hot dog in his mouth. Wow. And I used to read Uncle Kyle on Defamer before I ever read this blog, so it’s kind of neat to see him “in the flesh,” so to speak.
GO ANNABEL! Those little chubby cheeks just slay me every time.
July 9th, 2010 at 6:36 am
That was so, so cute. Rigby looks adorable in a swimsuit
July 9th, 2010 at 6:39 am
That was too cute! I love the end of the hot dog eating contest with Annie’s cheeks covered in ketchup and mustard. It’s great that the whole family got in on it too.
July 9th, 2010 at 6:49 am
What a great way to start my day! My kids got a kick out of this video and now they won’t stop watching it!
July 9th, 2010 at 6:51 am
I am pretty sure she should have her own tv show. I was shocked at how good her singing voice is
Heather and Mike you have to be the COOLEST parents ever.
July 9th, 2010 at 6:56 am
I was wondering how long it was going to be until “Unlce” Kyle made an appearance in one of these videos. That was awesome.
July 9th, 2010 at 7:03 am
You crack me up! I love it! Loved the guest appearances by St. Gramma and “Unlce Kyle”!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:04 am
Hahaha! My co-worker and I just laughed our asses off to this. Especially the hot dog eating contest. Priceless!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:07 am
Love it, you guys are hilarious!!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:10 am
I have never commented before, but read often. That video made my day. You guys are awesome.
July 9th, 2010 at 7:18 am
OMG I Loved this. I love all the videos y’all do. ANd is that you singing, Heather? You have a great voice!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:34 am
((CLAP)) ((CLAP)) ((CLAP)) That was great!! I love reading your blog, looking at all your pictures of your beautiful girls, and watching all your videos. You’re the best family on earth!
What a good day. Thanks for making me laugh.
July 9th, 2010 at 7:51 am
I absolutely LOVE how you get everyone involved in these videos!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:52 am
Wanna come over and convince my husband that we need to make videos like this? Annie’s going to hate you for these someday….and it will be all worth it!!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:53 am
Video Fridays are so awesome! If only you knew how much I look forward to these.
July 9th, 2010 at 7:54 am
Looks like Annie had a blast on her first July 4th.
Love the videos, hope you guys keep them coming!!
(((HUGS))) from Florida
July 9th, 2010 at 8:05 am
You guys are so darn cute Love the videos, keep em coming!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:09 am
too cute for words! I always look forward to Video Fridays! =)
July 9th, 2010 at 8:17 am
hahaha these videos crack me up!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:22 am
You have the best family, I bet you guys have the best time together. Great video, and of course Annie was as cute as ever!! Thanks for entertaining me this morning.
July 9th, 2010 at 8:26 am
I can’t pick my favorite part. Annie has a set of pipes, but I love the “ooooh, oooh” at the fireworks. Her face is priceless.
My not so favorite part, wet hotdog buns. OMG.
July 9th, 2010 at 8:37 am
Seriously had a smile on my face the whole time watching that! LOVED IT!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:38 am
July 9th, 2010 at 8:52 am
You guys are too funny – and Heather, you can SANG, girl! Annabel is more adorable in every pic. Your family is so sweet to be in these videos – so fun!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:54 am
Seriously, these videos make my day. I want to be you when I grow up….so talented!!!! (OK the fact that I am probably your mother’s age is irrelevant)
July 9th, 2010 at 8:57 am
So cute!! I love it =)
And Heather (I mean Annie!), when is your album coming out?
You guys are so awesome
Hilarious! Your videos are so much fun!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:02 am
LOL. That was brilliant.
July 9th, 2010 at 9:11 am
Absolutely hilarious! best video yet!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:15 am
You guys are awesome – LOVE the Friday videos!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:25 am
These videos never fail to make me smile. I absolutely adore your family!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:31 am
Dear Lord… TOO CUTE!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:53 am
Loved it………so cute and so creative!!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:59 am
So much fun!!!!!
July 9th, 2010 at 10:51 am
i laughed when i could see your hands during the hot dog contest- even though it is a given they *were* there.. seeing them just makes her look all the more like a sweet little puppet..heh
July 9th, 2010 at 11:25 am
I LOVE these videos of Annie and Rigby talking!
July 9th, 2010 at 11:53 am
I’m pretty sure that the bird flying overhead adds to the beauty of this video.
I love her little “ooohhh” face when she was watching the fireworks! How precious!
July 9th, 2010 at 11:56 am
You guys are hilarious!!!!!
You sure are one big happy family and Annabel is one lucky gal
July 9th, 2010 at 12:17 pm
Love, love, loooove this! And I love that the whole family was so willing!
July 9th, 2010 at 1:14 pm
I just love these videos! They’re so much fun! You guys are a riot.
July 9th, 2010 at 1:20 pm
Gets my vote as best video yet!!
July 9th, 2010 at 1:57 pm
I’m pretty sure Annie needs to sing the anthem at a Dodger game.
July 9th, 2010 at 2:22 pm
HYSTERICAL!!! How in the heck do you get Rigby to stay on that raft.
I have to tell you I was feeling down today but after seeing this video I have such a huge smile on my face and all is right with the world. Thank you.
July 9th, 2010 at 3:54 pm
“That was nothing! Hey guys, pass me your leftovers.”
This was so adorable. Oh Annie, you do lead the glamarous life. Hehe. =P
P.S. Nice voice by the way Heather. ;o)
July 9th, 2010 at 4:25 pm
Like everyone else, I thank you for making these adorable videos and sharing them with us. My kidlets LOVE them too and watch them over and over. Tristan just sees a picture of Annabel and says “Hey it’s the baby Amazing Annabel!!!” So cute!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:26 pm
That was so adorable! I loved the mustard on her little cheeks!!
July 9th, 2010 at 4:48 pm
This made my day!
July 9th, 2010 at 5:35 pm
I debate between you having too much time on your hands, or you being the next Spielberg. I don’t know that you can go wrong either way.
July 9th, 2010 at 5:55 pm
These make my day! Thanks for being so awesome and having THE most adorable girls I’ve ever seen
July 9th, 2010 at 7:00 pm
Ha ha!! This was so hilarious! Love the hot dog contest! You guys are too funny – love how your dad got involved!!
July 9th, 2010 at 7:09 pm
I love your zest for life…yet hate the way I have no awesome videos to parade out not that my kids are teens Keep on having fun-you guys are so awesome!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:27 pm
I swear in my next life I want to come back as your kid, your best friend, or your sister. Ok. I would even settle for your next door neighbor. And that Annie… OMG no words…… she is AWESOME!!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:42 pm
As usual, you guys make my heart smile. Mike dipping the hot dog in water……so gross =)
July 9th, 2010 at 8:48 pm
So much fun!! Oh & “annabel” has a really good voice!!
July 9th, 2010 at 8:54 pm
This is just the cutest of all cute! Annabel will love these videos when she grows up! It reminds me of when I was growing up – we would play pretend all the time. The whole family would get in on it. We would do entire skits! But we were too poor for a video camera. LOL.
Love Rigby in the bikini!
One question i have been meaning to ask. Where did Rigby get a name like Rigby when she is a girl? Sounds boyish.
Oh yeah, and Heather you have a GREAT voice!
July 9th, 2010 at 9:00 pm
And seriously dudes, Annabel’s singing voice actually distracted me from the cuteness.
Anabelle is an adorable cutie , but I think Rigby deserves her own show !
July 9th, 2010 at 9:18 pm
you guys are soo awesome!! my kids have had so much fun watching this….over….and over….
July 10th, 2010 at 5:08 am
That was awesome!! Thanks for making my day a little brighter!
July 10th, 2010 at 7:57 am
omg! Too, too funny! You guys are so creative,. Love when the uncle throws down his hot dog when the time is up, hahaha! Little Annabel is so stinkin adorable!
July 10th, 2010 at 8:22 am
So I totally suck at this parenting thing. I don’t even know if I have a 4th picture. Too cute. thanks for sharing.
July 10th, 2010 at 10:59 am
These movies are just too good. Annabel is a natural… My boys LOVE watching her!!
July 10th, 2010 at 3:20 pm
absolutely hilarious! Matt and I are cracking up. Pretty soon, Annabel can totally take on Joey Chesnut!
July 10th, 2010 at 3:51 pm
Absolute beyond adorable – yay on the hotdog eating contest!!!
July 10th, 2010 at 5:17 pm
Um – that was BEYOND awesome. Loved it!!!
July 10th, 2010 at 5:24 pm
Okay, she is the MOST PATRIOTIC baby EVER!
And it just occurred to me…why do I always try to take photos of fireworks instead of video?! Hmmm…thanks, Annabel!
July 10th, 2010 at 10:20 pm
I can’t tell you how much I loved this!!
July 11th, 2010 at 7:25 am
That was AWESOME!!! So creative
July 11th, 2010 at 7:59 am
OMG so funny. Your dad cracks me up!
July 11th, 2010 at 10:23 am
This is awesome! Thanks for sharing!
July 11th, 2010 at 3:57 pm
Okay, that post you did earlier about what giant dorks you guys are……i finally get it. Totally not intimidated anymore.
July 12th, 2010 at 7:00 am
Absolutely adorable!! I loved it.
July 12th, 2010 at 7:06 am
I don’t know what I laughed harder at, when you introduced Bampa, the look that the Uncle gave when he was introduced, or when Uncle threw the plate when he lost the contest. So funny!
July 12th, 2010 at 10:03 am
My kids laugh and laugh when Mike says< "A little pitchy, Dawg, a little pitchy."
Now, I will have to view this video 100 more times, per their request.
July 12th, 2010 at 1:18 pm
I love these videos! They crack me up.
July 13th, 2010 at 10:35 am
Very, very funny! Looks like she had a great time!
I agree with all of the above comments about the singing too – such a pleasant voice! Pretty amazing too that “Annabel” can hold her baby voice and the beautiful tone too.
July 13th, 2010 at 11:09 am
That was SOOOO cute! : )
July 19th, 2010 at 11:53 pm
Heather, it’s funny that even in Annie’s voice, you can still sing really well! Great job guys! You guys are so fun!
