First Annual Nuffer Art Show

During our family summer camp this summer the boys created A LOT of art and I've displayed it on the wall as they've created.  I thought it would be cute to have a fancy-shmancy "art showing" before I took it all down.  We invited the grandparents, and I interviewed everyone about their favorite pieces.  I served some snacks hor d'oeuvores and we drank sparkling cider in some plastic very classy wine glasses.  It was a lot of fun and I hope it becomes a family tradition!

Here's the hor d'oeuvores and wine table

Jackson's masterpieces:  one of grandma's favorite art pieces was the rocket ship pictured here-

One of my favorite art piece:  the constellations, titled "Places"

Austin's masterpieces:  one of daddy's favorite works is the hippo pictured here in the bottom left corner-

Another of my favorites is the craters on the moon piece-

Here's their ocean art:  grandma also liked the jellyfish sun-catchers (Jackson's work is on top, Austin's is on bottom-- Please ignore our overgrown yard, we've actually had quite a bit of unexpected rain)-

Jackson's favorite piece was his sea turtle:

Austin said he liked his whole wall, so I think he just had a good summer of art fun!  
I liked his little octopus friend-

The boys thought it was pretty cool to use "fancy" cups.
Austin wouldn't put his down, it was really cute.  And no one spilled!  Success!

This really was a lot of fun and it was a chance for the boys to show off their creative work and talents.  What a fun way to finish off the summer!

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.
