Always one to be crafty, Aunt Heather helped Jada and Madison decorate flowerpots and plant some pretty flowers for Mother’s Day this past spring. The two enjoyed a fun sleepover at our home and had fun painting, glitterizing, and getting dirty, not to mention also picking out the flowers they wanted from the store. In the end, Madison went with pink flowers in a golden hued pot, while Jada went with purple flowers in a blue/purple camouflage pot…aren’t they wonderful!?
If you are ever looking for a fun little activity to keep a couple of girls busy, let them make their own flowerpots!
Noah and Jada Dance Party
Noah and Jada make a cute cousin couple, don’t they?! This past summer, they enjoyed a little dance together…either the waltz or the samba, I cannot remember which…
The Lil’ Kid’s Table
Sippin’ some juice, eatin’ some cherry tomatoes, playin’ with a few badminton shuttlecocks…these are just a few of the normal activities Jada, Noah and I were doing at the little kid’s table in my cousin Victoria’s childhood treehouse this past summer. Gotta love playing ‘House’!
Happy 3rd Birthday, Jada!!
Woohoo! Today is Jada’s third birthday, and we can hardly believe she is already three years old. She’s been growing up fast and has definitely been developing her own fun personality, and we always enjoy spending time with her. The photo above was taken earlier today as she blew out the candle on her awesome ice cream sandwich birthday cake…you can see the excitement on her face, and she was actually so excited to blow out the candle, she couldn’t even hold in her breath during the last line of the birthday song!
Happy Birthday, Jada!
Madison’s Fine Portrait Photography
Every once in a while, my oldest nieces Hannah and Madison will stare at the camera hanging from my neck and ask, “Can I take some pictures?!?” As long as I can get the camera strap on their neck, I enjoy showing them how to use it, and they have both taken some good shots all on their own! Just last night, Madison asked to take a picture of Grandma, Aunt Heather, Uncle Jer, and sister Jada, and although I am pretty sure she wasn’t exactly looking through the viewfinder, she snapped a nice ‘all smiles’ shot!
The Apgar Clan, August 2012…Gone Crazy!!
Well…we were a good lookin’ crew, until someone said “Silly Faces!” and we erupted into chaos. Kids will be kids…whether they are actual kids or just kids at heart…
Have a happy Labor Day!
The Apgar Clan, August 2012
What a nice lookin’ group, if I may say so myself! We took this photo in the beginning of August and managed to get smiles and open eyes throughout! Gotta love family.
