Bright, sunny days after a big snowfall are the best, especially when there hasn’t been a bunch of wind to knock off the mounds of snow on top of everything. The sunshine also makes shoveling driveways and cleaning porches that much more enjoyable… On one such lovely, sunny afternoon about 10 years ago, my parents took a short break from tossing snow to have some fun. I of course had to get a cute “sitting-together-on-a-snowy-swing” shot.
The Start of Something Delicious
My mom’s cinnamon rolls are, and have always been, the best ever. Raisins or not (choose from the left or right side of the dish!), they are just the right consistency, have just the right amount of nuttiness and cinnamonniness, and are of course topped with a glaze that is just the right sweetness. This is a before shot from one particular Easter batch, and I think they even look tasty in this form!
Raggedy Ann Mom
It’s Raggedy Ann!…or rather, my mom pretending to be Raggedy Ann on Halloween many years ago. Who would have thought she could pull off being a redhead??
It also looks like her dog was a little confused by this mysterious character in striped stockings.
Happy 40th Anniversary, Mom & Dad!!
Wow, 40 years…that’s pretty unbelievable! It was back in October of 1972 that my mom and dad got hitched, and they are still laughing and smiling together as much as ever.
This photo was taken a few years ago while on vacation up in Vermont, although it was enhanced by my brother Michael to help celebrate their 40th anniversary. Happy 40th Anniversary!!
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.
