Jackson's school activities

I can not say enough how much I LOVE Jackson's school!  I like that it's a Christian environment so they have REAL Christmas activities and programs.  The kids are so excited this time of year and I like that even at school Jackson is reminded that Christmas is about Christ.

Jackson had his first Christmas program.  It was the story of Christ's birth.  SO SO SO cute!!  I get so emotional when I think about how much Jackson has grown up already.  Just being at a school for a program for him made me tear up while I waited anxiously to see him.  Then I saw him walk out in his little angel outfit and I cried uncontrollably.  In fact, I'm tearing up again just thinking about it.  What is wrong with me?!?!  Jackson did perfectly!  He was loud and irreverent.   He wouldn't keep his little angel halo on and loudly told his teacher that he no longer needed it right in the middle of the program.  He picked his nose (which, honestly, he doesn't even do at home- I guess that's for special public occasions only).  He loudly told the music teacher that he wanted to go sit with his mommy and daddy (several times).  And he yelled sang so loudly that I could hear him above all the other children.  But my most favorite part was when he first took his place on the stage and then started frantically looking for Jim and me.  You could see excitement and relief on his face when he finally saw us.  I was so proud of my beautiful boy even with the nose picking and acts of irreverence.  Oh, how I love my real life angel!



Today was Jackson's first school Christmas party.  He had a lot of fun and made a cute snowman and ate really good food.  He was so excited!


Well, since it's Christmas and Jackson now has a teacher we got to make his teacher an ornament for a gift.  Jackson painted the letter "K" (for Mrs. Kennedy) gold all by himself.  I might have done a little touching up, but he pretty much painted it by himself.  The ornament turned out so cute I made an "N" for our tree.  I think this might be the start of a Christmas tradition- the boys will make their teachers ornaments.  You can never have too many ornaments.


He was so proud of himself.


Here's the final product.  I told you it was cute!  We have run out of Christmas cards so I made Mrs. Kennedy a card.

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.
