New Years Eve 2015

The last couple New Years I have made balloons with special times on them and each balloon/time has a fun activity or treat or game etc., but this year since Harrison is so little and his schedule is a little watery I didn't want to have certain plans set in stone and then Harrison throw a fit because it's not what he wanted to do.  And I wanted a less stressful night, so we just kind of went with the flow of the night.  We were still getting over the flu that Jackson brought home for Christmas, so we stayed in.

A couple times a year I let the boys eat whatever they want for dinner, even if it's pure junk food.  New Years Eve is one of those nights.  I told them it was a special party night so they got to choose whatever food they wanted for dinner.  This was well received by all (including daddy).  They both requested cream cheese and crackers, and Jackson wanted peanut butter cups and Fruit By The Foot and Austin wanted Starbursts and Fruit Loop fruit snacks.  Jim bought about 5 different salsas to try.  I was ok with cheese and crackers.  ;)
So we started the night with "dinner"-

Harrison wasn't interested in party food, but he had something yummy and pureed, no doubt.
His favorite table past-time is gumming down his bibs, so he was very content.

Then we took some fun family pictures because Harrison was ready for bed.

One last one with daddy before bedtime!

We did recreate a couple pictures to compare Harrison and Jackson at this age since they look so much alike (Jackson was 4 months and Harrison was 5 months)

With Harrison in bed we took a couple more pictures of the bigger boys and started PLAYING!

The rest of the night was filled with board games and Just Dance 2015!  My boys LOVE to dance, so this game is one of their favoirte things to do.  It's pretty hilarious watching them dance too.  Though, they would probably tell you the same about Jim and me.  ;)
They made it the latest this year, 10pm.  They could have kept partying, but Jim and I were so tired we called 10 our midnight, counted down, and went to bed.
It was a good night.

 Happy New Year from the Nuffers!

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.
