For all that is negatively written about Michael Jackson, he was without a doubt a loving, caring father who cherished every moment with his children.
A collection of never-before-seen private family photos and home videos were shown in court Thursday, and they truly show MJ at his absolute best.
The two videos, shot by Michael on Christmas 2006 and a few years earlier, were played for the jury in the family's wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.
It's pretty wonderful, yet bittersweet as Michael asks each of his kids what they want to be when they grow up, and clearly loves every second of it.
The idea behind releasing this material is to showcase the immeasurable loss the children suffered when Michael died (which they say AEG is to blame for).
Legal battle aside, Prince Jackson testified about MJ and how loving he was, and the videos and photos shown in court clearly drive that point home.
