Valentines Day 2015

Oh, how I love thee, Valentine's Day!  This year was wonderful!  I really really appreciate not being pregnant this time around.  It was a really nice day and Jim spoiled me with candy and roses, but my favorite part, it's always my favorite part, is the sweet love note he wrote me.  I LOVE flowers and Dove chocolate truffles are one of my favorite candies on the planet, but I really don't care about those things at all (sorry, babe), it's the note that I want.  Heart day is always about telling the people you love that you love them, and why you love them.  I kind of failed this year...  We bought the boys little Lego Star Wars things and some treats, but I forgot to write them little Valentines notes and Jackson asked me where his note was.  I felt awful that I forgot!  Duh!  I was so busy thinking of cute ways to make their Valentine's Day special that I forgot the most important part, but my sweet boy remembered.  Oops!  I'm even tempted to nix all gifts next year, and only write sweet notes.
We'll see...

Friday was Jackson's class Valentine's party.
We told him that I couldn't make it because I had his brothers and it was just too much commotion to take his brothers to his class party.  He asked over and over again for Jim or me to come to his party.  
Little did he know, I was always going to go to his Valentines party!
He was so so so excited to see us show up.  He almost noticed I was there, but mostly he was stoked to see his brothers.  Story of my life as Jackson's mom.  ;)

We started the morning with special heart shaped breakfast treats!
I meant to cut out some heart shaped cantaloupe, but I forgot.  Besides only Austin and I eat canteloupe, and 50% of the time Austin doesn't like canteloupe.

They turned out pretty good!

I didn't want Harrison to have all the sugar that the sweet rolls had, so I gave him a heart shaped frozen waffle (frozen waffles are great for teething babies, just a little fyi for ya).

Is it just me or does he look a little fearful eating his waffle?  Maybe he thinks someone is going to take his delicious heart day treat?

I had heart shaped sandwiches on the menu for lunch time, but we were out running errands and ended up eating out, but the Freddy's we had was delicious!
Dinner was our old tradition of a heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's.  Jackson has never liked pizza so I got this heart hot dog idea from my dear friend, April, and made Jackson's dinner a little love note (you know, since I totally spaced on his real love note from mama).

As always, I had to take a few pictures of my littlest valentines in their Valentine's outfits.

The boys made some really cute Valentines too!
Some of the "reasons" they listed were a little hilarious...
Jackson loves daddy because of his curly hair.
Austin loves grandma so much he's going to die!

Another great Valentine's comes and goes, and we were able to give lots of love and remind one another just how much we love each other!

Happy Valentine's Day!

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.
