A room fit for a couple of superheroes!

Our little project is finally finsihed- our superheroes have a new space.  But the very best part, Austin is sleeping in his big boy bed and we haven't had any problems! Success!

We had a lot of little projects that we had to put together before we could put the room together.  The first was to mend the curtains (which still work in their new room- woohoo, love to save money!).  We were going to sew them, but Mighty Mend it did a much faster and easier job of it!  We were quite proud of ourselves.


We also put together their new toy storage cubbies, but their matching cubbie storage bins weren't in yet.  I sewed a couple yellow accent pillows all by myself!  I haven't sewed since I was 12 years old.  Usually my mom does the actual sewing for me.  You'll see pics of the pillows later.  Thinking back I should have done a before and after...  This is their room before.


Their matching storage bins came in!  Blue, red, and yellow for Superman/Jackson and black, gray, and yellow for Batman/Austin.  Notice the plethora of Batman caves and toys- thank you Grandma Marlow for buying the boys every Batman toy you could possibly find for Christmas.  ;)

Another project was getting wood cut for bunky boards for their beds.  Jackson had a built in bunky board in his mattress and that mattress was terrible, so both boys got new mattresses.  Here's Jackson helping the Lowe's guy, Eric, cut their boards.  Eric had the best customer service!  Such a nice guy.


This is their room after we got the beds put together and their toys put away in their new places.  Looks good, but it needed some superhero bling.  Notice the little yellow accent pillow on each bed- I made those! It's not very easy to find a yellow accent pillow in the middle of winter, so I made my own.



And here is the finished product.  We repainted their name letters to match and put together some new artwork for their walls.  Jim sketched the Superman and Batman paintings and we both hand painted them.  The Cricut helped us with the rest of the room.








Done!  A new room for the two cutest little superheroes I know.

  2. I was going to stick to a jungle theme with boy/girl. I also considered pink/brown polka dots with blue and brown polka dots. A sea theme would work for a boy/girl room too.

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.
