Daddy takes a day off to surprise the boys!

A while back, I came across a book, The Duckling Gets a Cookie by Mo Willems.  I loved it!  The boys loved it!  Since, our entire family has become big Mo Willems fans.  Mo just came out with a new book, The Pigeon Needs a Bath, and it's fantastic just like all his other books!  Anyway, after reading it for the 100th time Jackson asked if Jim would go to his school to read the book to his class- what a awesome idea!  Jim was super excited to fulfill Jackson's wish, especially since he had planned to take a day off soon.

Well, the day arrived!  Daddy took a day off and didn't tell the boys.  After talking to Jackson's teacher, who was excited and eager to have Jim come read a book to the class, Jim surprised Jackson and his class with the new Mo Willems book.  They were thoroughly enthralled with The Pigeon Needs a Bath.  Jim's such a amazing dad!  

Reading to the class.

And Daddy came equipped with Dr. Suess pencils and some M&Ms for everyone!  
Jackson helped Daddy pass out the treats.

Everybody say, "CHEESE"!!

Austin and I stayed home because the little girls in Jackson's class just adore Austin (they all want to be his mommy- it's adorable!), but I wanted this to be Jackson's day with his Dad.  However, Jim wanted to do something special for Austin while Jackson was at school, so we took Austin to Toys R Us and let him spend his birthday money.  Austin was super excited about his surprise from Daddy!  He found the coolest toy and Jim was pretty excited about it too.  He found a Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood neighborhood WITH the trolley!  Jim almost peed himself he was so excited to find this toy (a toy he wanted as a child, but they didn't have when we were kids), and he was even more excited when Austin wanted to buy the same toy.  It was a match made in the Land of Make Believe heaven!

I didn't get pictures of Austin picking out his toy, but here he is playing at home-

My boys have the best daddy!  
Needless to say, he definitely made both of his boys' day today.
He's their hero!

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.
