Big Poppa's Birthday Bash!

All the hard work and preparations paid off! Big Poppa's 1st birthday was a hit and he had a great time! His party theme was The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. SO CUTE!

Here are his invitations. I only made them for the children coming, my adult friends don't need a fake caterpillar in a jar. Sorry I couldn't get better pictures.

This is the shirt I made for Big Poppa to wear to his party. I forgot to get pictures of him in it though. Oops. Sorry it's blurry, I took it with my phone.

This is the food table, some of the decor, the cupcakes, and the smash cake (I can't get the cake picture to be right side up). I made a lot of the decorations myself to save money. I love how everything turned out!

The party food came straight from the book. And I had lines from the book about the food on note cards next to the corresponding food.

This is Austin's 1st year timeline, month by month.

These are the party favors which I completely forgot to send home with the guests. I forget to send the favors home with the guests every single birthday party I throw, why should this one be different? I guess we'll be going to a few houses giving them out tonight. They're bubble wands I made to look like the butterfly at the end of the book.

This is Austin's friend Adrian who is only 10 months old. Adrian was the only baby close to Austin's age at the party and they didn't know what to do with each other. They are so cute!

Austin's just enjoying some party food with Grandma Marlow.

Smash cake time!! This was a total mess!! There was red frosting EVERYWHERE! I'm pretty sure we'll be finding red frosting randomly for years to come. Good thing Austin had a good time. These pictures don't do justice to the mess he made by the time he was through.

By the end of his 1st birthday bash, my little birthday boy was all partied out. He almost fell asleep on grandma's lap.

Happy Birthday Day Big Poppa!!


  1. Happy Birthday Austin! I love, love, love the cake. You did a great job!

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.
