My boys: As they are right now

I'm stealing this idea from a fellow mommy and friend. Thanks Nicole! I posted earlier about time going by so fast and that I'm afraid I'm going to forget my babies as they are right now. As this is a huge fear of mine, every so often I'm going to post about who they are at the current time of the post. So here are my boys right now.

Jackson, 2 years and almost 10 months:
He's 3 feet, 2 inches tall and still very blonde. His nursery teacher told me that he's the most polite toddler in class. He almost always says please and thank you. Occasionally we have to remind him, but that's pretty rare. And he also loves to say, "bless you!" to anyone who makes any sort of noise. This makes Jim and me laugh a lot, especially when we hear "bless you!" from his room after we think he's gone to sleep. Something else he just started doing the other night is saying, "10 bucks" when we're at a register or when he sees a receipt. I don't know when he picked up '10 bucks', but in Jackson's world everything costs '10 bucks'. ...if only this were true. He's very independent. It seems like his favorite words are, "Jackson do it". He's very hands on and he never sits still. He loves to play outside, especially in the water or with water toys. He would rather play in water than do anything else in the world. Unfortunately, it's been 100+ degrees outside, so we haven't been outside in a couple days. He mimics everything and everyone, especially his daddy. He's also just discovered singing and dancing. He loves to sing, especially Dora's "I'm the map", "Backpack", and Diego's theme song. His favorite dance is the Elmo slide. He has a few jealousy issues that we're all trying to work through, but overall he is a great big brother. He is constantly kissing and hugging baby Austin and he loves to help whenever he can. (This is really nice when we need a diaper or a binky.) He's never been much of a snuggler, but since Austin has been born he snuggles much more now and we are loving it! Oh, I almost forgot, he speaks with an Italian accent. He says things like, "some-ah bread, please" or "juice-ah please" or "go-ah shopping". Jim thinks he's picked it up from Mario Cart on the Wii. He's always entertaining.

Favorite toy: water toys
Favorite past time: helping with Austin, following mommy and daddy around, and singing
Favorite color: seems to be red right now
Favorite jammies: his footie jammies
Funny words: "sun away please"= close the curtains please. "Mawio Caht, weeeeee"= Mario Cart, Wii, and he says this whenever we are on an overpass. "Gah-ma home ah-Donode's"= Grandma lives at McDonalds (because my mom always takes him to McDonalds for lunch on her day off).

Austin, 11 weeks and 1 day:
He's growing so much faster than Jackson did. He's 25 inches long and weighs 12lbs, 13oz. He has brown-ish hair with blonde highlights. My fingers are crossed that it stays brown, so I have one of each. He's long like his brother, but much chunkier. I love his round little tummy and his chunky little legs! He's adorable! He's been rolling from his tummy to his back since he was 8 weeks. I think it's because he hates tummy time so much. He keeps trying to get into the crawl position, but his little arms aren't quite strong enough yet. He loves to snuggle! And I love that he loves to snuggle. He's very easy going, and unless he has gas or he's hungry, he's smiling. He's been smiling since he was 4 weeks old and he's just starting to giggle a little. Thinking of his little smile warms my heart. He loves his bouncer. He had to get a new one because he grew out of the bouncer we had for him, and the new bouncer bounces much better.

Favorite toy: His little lady bug friend that hangs from his play mat
Favorite past time: bouncing in the bouncer and making smiley faces at mommy and daddy

*I used this picture because it shows his little round tummy and chubby little legs. I just want to eat them up!

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.
