Harrison's blessing

Harrison is 6 weeks old and it's time for his blessing at church.  I waited the longest with Harrison, probably because he's my baby.  Jackson's and Austin's blessings were both at 4 weeks, but I wasn't ready at 4 weeks with Harrison.  Plus, I was in the throws of a really difficult semester in school, so I was really stressed out 2 weeks ago.  Waiting until Harrison was 6 weeks just worked best this time around.

For whatever reason, I have never taken pictures of just the baby being blessed in their blessing outfits before Harrison.  Jackson wore a little white sweater that was Jim's as a baby.  Austin wore a little white sleeper set type outfit.  Harrison wore a little retro romper that I found for my mom to make.  I LOVE IT!  My mom also made a beautiful white blanket for Jackson's blessing which I strung a blue ribbon through with the intentions of changing the ribbon out for each child after Jackson.  Austin had a brown ribbon and Harrison has a green ribbon.  Again, I didn't take pictures with the blanket, even though our little family tradition is wrapped around this sweet little blanket.  So here are pictures of Harrison's blessing outfit and blanket.  I'm kicking myself for not taking pictures of the older boys!

He was about to start crying.
Love this little pouty face!

The blessing was beautiful.  Jim did a great job!  Harrison has a lifetime of love and kindness to spread.

Sarah captured this picture of Harrison and me.
I love it so much!
Thank you, Sarah!

Oh, how I love this sweet baby boy.
He is perfection.
We are all so grateful he has blessed our family with his precious spirit.

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.
