My little man turned 2!!

So no one ever told me that the second year of life goes by much faster than the first. It seemed like we just had Jackson's first birthday party a couple months ago, but nope, it's been a year. August brings the HOTTEST weather of the year and my little man's birthday.

Jim and I decided that this year we weren't going to have a big party like last year, just a small little get together with family, but little by little the party got bigger and bigger. I'm glad we threw him a big boy birthday party and think everyone had a good time.

Jackson really likes Toy Story, especially Buzz, so we decided to throw a Toy Story party. It worked out great because stores are busting at the seams with Toy Story mania!!

So, I realize it looks like Toy Story threw up in our house, but Jackson loved it!!






His cake... not too bad.



And we had Toy Story 2 playing in another room for everyone who didn't want to go outside and play in the water... or as I like to call them, party poopers.



Parenting books call my child "spirited", I call him crazy, but I find that if he gets to go outside and rummage through dirt and grass, play, and wonder around he has much fewer "crazy" moments throughout the day. We bought him a little pool and water table to play in outside when the weather is hot and he really likes to play in water, so we made his birthday a water birthday. Maggie came over to help Jackson celebrate his big day and they had so much fun togehter.





Then daddy started to spray them with the water, the both loved to get sprayed with the water, especially Maggie.




Jackson kept trying to get daddy's attention so that daddy would spray him again and again and again and again...



Anyway, it was a REALLY fun day and I know Jackson had a blast! Thank you everyone who came out to help us celebrate Jackson's 2nd birthday. And if you ask Jackson if he had a good day, he'll say, "YES!!!!!!"



I ALMOST FORGOT!!!! Sarah reminded me of how sweet Jackson was while he was opening up his presents. Every time he would rip a present open he would say, "thank you" over and over again. So sounded like this, RIP, "thank you!", RIP, "thank you", RIP, "thank you"!! It was so cute, I didn't even prompt him to say thank you until after he opened everything and then I told him to say thank you to everyone and he did loud and clear!

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?
Riiiiiiiiiight.

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!


The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.


And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)



And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
