Treasure hunting

This little incident actually happened a couple months ago, but I want to blog about it because I want to remember the story. Enjoy.

I haven't been able to wear my wedding band since I was about 6 months pregnant because it's just too tight on my tubby, swollen, pregnant fingers. So I placed my wedding band on my night stand. It took me almost 30 years to find a man that I could swindle and hoodwink into marrying me, so when I go out I like to wear my wedding band to prove that yes, indeed, ANYONE can get married. Besides, I'm a tubby, rolly-polly pregnant lady and I feel a bit dirty not wearing my wedding band. I know, I have lots of issues. Anyway, I digress. So one morning I was getting ready to leave the house and I started to grab for my "no, I didn't just get knocked up by some random guy" wedding band, but it was gone! Immediately I knew who the culprit was. The same tiny thief that steals my combs, hair clips, shoes, and receipts. It was my not-so-innocent little boy, Jackson. The problem is that Jackson is the best treasure keeper in the world. I clean every nook and cranny of this house and I can not find his hiding places. Right now I'm still missing my 2 favorite combs and I've looked every where. My little boy is a master thief.

I was a little bothered by the fact that I didn't have my wedding band, but I knew it would eventually show up. And sure enough, about a week later, I'm getting ready to leave the house again and out of the corner of my eye I see Jackson grab a hair clip and race out of the room with a very determined look on his face. I knew immediately that if I wanted to find my wedding band I needed to quickly follow my little treasure keeper. So I very quietly (as quietly as a waddling, rolly-polly can chase) chased Jackson out of our room, into the living room and then into his bedroom where I just barely caught him put my hair clip into his humidifier. My little thieving genius had been hiding my things in his humidifier. All I could do was laugh at my little culprit and very anxiously peak into the humidifier and pray that my ring was in there too. And there it was, my hair clip, a few odds and ends, and my wedding band!

With the help of a butter knife, I very strategically rescued my wedding band and hair clip from the humidifier. Needless to say, now my wedding band is placed on the top shelf of a very high book shelf, so that I don't have to go Indiana Jones on my son and his hiding places.

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?

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.
