Noah Paints a Car

My nephew Noah loves his cars.  So you can definitely understand his excitement when he got a crafty paintable car for Christmas.  He was able to not only play with messy paints, but also make his own model car.  He did take a quick break to smile big for the camera before going back to painting his wheels.

Happy 4th Birthday, Noah!!

And just like that, my nephew Noah is 4 years old today!  Where does the time go?

Happy Birthday, Noah!!

Noah and Jada Dance Party

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’!

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.

Noah & Jada

It isn’t always that easy to get these two to sit still, sit somewhat close to one another, have them both looking at the camera, and get them to have some sort of smile on their faces.  So this shot of my niece and nephew was a great alignment of all these factors.  Right after this photo, Noah tried putting some chapstick on Jada’s lips…and she wasn’t all that thrilled, so they went their separate ways.

Happy Birthday to Robyn!

This past Mother’s Day, both Hannah and Noah took a moment to pose with their mom, and they were all smiles (and slight squints due to the strong sun!).

Today is Robyn’s birthday!  I hope you had an enjoyable day!

Happy 8th Anniversary, Michael & Robyn!

It was 8 years ago that Michael and Robyn said their vows to each other on a chilly but beautiful March day.  This photo of Michael, Robyn, Hannah, and Noah was taken this past June when we had gotten together to celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday.  What a great family!

Happy Anniversary!!

Noah is Three Today!!

What kid doesn’t enjoy eating cake and making a huge mess…all while a bunch of grown-ups are laughing and taking pictures?!?  Last year, my nephew Noah certainly had a fun time with his 2nd birthday cake.  Not only was it messy (including some black frosting that looks like it stained Noah’s hand), but as I recall, it tasted pretty good!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Noah!!

Happy 35th Birthday, Mike!!

Michael and Noah are all smiles in this photo…although Noah may be smiling more because he has a tube of chapstick, but I’m sure someone said “Say Cheese”.  This was taken this past summer as we all met up for a day at the beach in Point Pleasant, NJ (a close look at Mike’s sunglasses reveals the distant ocean and beach, as well as the boardwalk with the rest of the family standing around).

Today is my brother’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, Mike!  Hope you have an awesome day!!

Snowflake-Capped Noah

It’s that wonderful time of year again when threats of frosty nighttime temperatures will soon give way to snow and other wintery goodness.  So right now is a good time to make sure your hats, gloves, and scarves are at the ready for this seasonal change.  Noah was keeping plenty warm in this photo with his cool snowflake cap (although this was a different seasonal change in March), although I think I caught him a little off guard with this shot…

Sisters, Brother, Cousins

It isn’t always easy to get 4 kids to sit together for a cute group shot…so when Jada & Madison and Noah & Hannah sat together on this swing last April, this photo was about the best we could manage.  But hey, they’re all so cute, and nobody is crying or making a fuss, so I guess it wasn’t too bad after all (Noah just didn’t want to look at any cameras…).

Noah’s Comfy Green Seat

I don’t know about you, but this bright green seat looks pretty comfortable.  4-month-old Noah seemed to be enjoying his seat when this photo was taken a couple years ago, especially since it allowed him to sit up in the middle of the room all by himself.

Do you think they make adult sizes?

Gigglin’ Noah

This past weekend, I managed to get Noah giggling and laughing for what seemed like a long time (although it was probably 5 minutes or so).  As he bounced up and down on a horse toy, I bounced around right in front of him (head, body, and arms wobbling all over the place).  Then he would stop, so I would stop and put my head down.  Then he wouldn’t move until I sneakily looked at him, which was his cue to start bouncing and laughing again as I started bouncing around.  So you can imagine how long this could go on…bounce, laugh, stop, stare, bounce, laugh,…

Of course, a couple times I stopped bouncing around just long enough to snap a photo of Noah gigglin’ away.

Sparkler Delight

This is the weekend of fireworks, and while sparklers aren’t quite as huge and awe-inspiring as some fantastic fireworks display, they can still be just as fun (and dangerous!).  You can write out your name, twirl them around in crazy configurations, blind your friends, and burn your toes with falling embers…all the while watching the bright sparks getting closer and closer to your hand.

If you’re enjoying fireworks this weekend…sparklers included…stay safe!!

Playin’ Drums with Noah

Noah and dad Michael have some good rhythm, and they were able to keep a good beat on these drums at Jada’s birthday celebration this past year {photo #698}…at least for a few seconds, before Noah turned his attention to something else.  But who knows, it may only be a short time before he’s banging away on a big drumset, annoying his parents and sister and neighbors…

Bang away, Noah!

Drivin’ a Minnetonka Car…

Let me start this post off by saying that Noah really, *really* likes cars…specifically, the cars from Pixar’s animated film, “Cars”.  On Christmas, Noah got a couple of cool Cars-related toys, but he wasn’t able to open them up right away, so he did what any other two-year-old might do…he grabbed a nearby moccasin-box, sat on it, and started zooming around the living room making car noises.  He was having quite a fun drive from the looks of it, that is, until the box collapsed and Noah took a spill, as captured in the photo above.

Just another story to illustrate how much fun a kid can have with an empty box…

Noah is Two Years Old!!

Wow, is my nephew Noah growing up fast!!  This photo was taken only a couple weeks ago at Christmas, and I was able to capture a quick smile from the little man while he was playing with various cars, baby carriages, and the nearby stairs.

Today, Noah is two years old, so Happy Birthday Noah!!  Hope you have lots of fun!

Noah, Hannah, Jada and Madison say, “Goodbye 2010!”

Last year on New Year’s Eve, I posted a photo of my lovely nieces and nephew {photo #412}, so I figured I would end 2010 with an updated picture of them!  I hope you had a great year, and I’m sure 2011 will be even better!

Enjoy the midnight festivities (if you can stay up that long!) and have a happy new year!

Hannah and Noah on Christmas

The sister/brother duo of Hannah and Noah certainly enjoys Christmas…even if Noah doesn’t quite know it yet.  This photo was taken last year and was Noah’s first Christmas, but big sister Hannah was a Christmas pro by this point.

I don’t believe the santa hat lasted too long on Noah’s head…

Noah and the Pumpkin Patch

With his orange jack-o-lantern shirt, Noah blends right in with all the other pumpkins in this pumpkin patch.  Noah and the other little ones had fun frolicking around the pumpkins after our exciting adventure through the Mazezilla corn maze {photo #710}.

The Girls…and Noah

I guess Jada, Madison, and Hannah didn’t want Noah in the picture with them!  Those girls are such bullies!

Family in the Corn…

Family in the Corn Gone Crazy

What happens when you walk around in circles in a big corn maze for an hour?  Well, you start to go a little crazy…just check out my family in the photo above!

We were certainly enjoying some fun fall activities this past weekend.  I hope you’re getting a chance to indulge in some autumn fun as well!
