Jim's birthday and Father's Day

Every year Jim's birthday falls right around Father's Day and I feel bad that he gets all his "special" days at once. I try really hard to have 2 separate celebrations, so this weekend was all about Daddy!

Saturday we had a birthday party for Daddy.  We had yummy bbq and a delicious cheesecake since he isn't fond of cake.  Then we opened presents.  Here are all of Daddy's birthday and Father's Day presents!  He made out like a bandet this year because not only did he get all of these gifts, he's also making his own smoker with a friend this weekend.  Lucky Daddy!

The boys had to help Daddy open all of his gifts.  There were just too many for Daddy to open all by himself.

I took Jackson to the Dollar Store and let him pick out some gifts for Daddy.  For Daddy's birthday Jackson picked out peppermint candies to give Daddy and some playdough for Austin to give Daddy.

Jackson put the bag on his head so he could have a birthday hat like Daddy.

Here's Birthday Daddy with his two favorite superheroes.  I love ALL of these boys!

For Father's Day we took the boys to the Science Spectrum and out to dinner. Jackson picked out a Mr. Potato Head preschool numbers book and a water squirter-thing to give Daddy for Father's Day, which happened to be exactly what Daddy wanted! Good thinking, Jackson! All in all I think Daddy had a good weekend with lots of celebrations. Jim is an amazing father to our boys, and I'm beyond grateful for him. How lucky we are to have him in our lives! Happy Birthday and Happy Father's Day Daddy!!! We love you!!!

PS Anyone else notice the crooked picture in the background?  It's driving me crazy!  Have I fixed it yet?  Nope!  ;)


  1. Hahaha! When I was scrolling through the pictures I noticed it and was shocked that you even posted the pics, cause I thought surely your OCD would take over and you would never allow that. You crack me up!

  2. Well, you're right, I normally wouldn't put of up pictures with the crooked picture, but they are all I had of the celebrations. Would you believe that I left it crooked for awhile because I kept forgetting, but it's fixed now. ;)

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.
