Ok, so 2 babies later and Chubs still needs to drop the weight

I've been thinking about how quickly my babies are growing up. Yesterday I realized that Austin's fore arm and hand together are shorter than my hand. I want to remember this 25 years from now when my little boy is a grown man. I want to remember how his little tiny arm was shorter than my hand when my hand is just a portion of his grown-up arm. I want to remember how tiny he was because every day he gets bigger and bigger and it's truly heartbreaking. Anyway, I realized that I don't really have any pictures of me with the boys because I hate how I look. I know that's silly because years from now just having the memories in picture form will be so much more important than what the scale says today, but it is what it is.

So it's time for chubs to lose weight. Seriously. I'm not talking join the latest fade diet to drop 20lbs quickly, I want long lasting results. I'm not the type to eat protein and leaves all day long or spend hours at the gym, so I need something that works for me. I'm also not trying to be a size 4 because that's not even possible for me. I'm not even trying to lose weight quickly, I'm good with slow gradual weight loss that stays off. I don't even know what weight I want to be, I figure I'll know when I get there. I just need to learn to eat better and to fit exercise into my routine. I think I'm going to try the Carb-Lovers diet because it's seems realistic and doable. Plus, I LOVE carbs! Now, I need to learn how to exercise occasionally, this could be a little more difficult. I'm not a run around the neighborhood type of girl. I do like to walk/jog/eventually run, but it has to be on a treadmill or a track, so it's not really doable for a stay at home mom because I'm pretty much in the house all day with the kids. I have some walking dvd's that are kinda fun, and we have a Wii work-out thing that is kinda fun, so I really just need to get off my lazy butt and do it. Anyway, if anyone has any ideas about implementing healthier eating and exercise into my routine by sharing some of your daily routines, I would greatly appreciate it.

For now, it's enough that I'm blasting this out into space so that people know that I need to get moving. This will hold me a little more accountable. And maybe I'll even post progress as I get started and going. We'll see.

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.
