Easter 2015

Easter was really nice this year.  The boys visited the Easter bunny, colored and hunted eggs, we ate a lot of food, and had some fun with family.  I couldn't ask for more!

First, the boys visited the Easter bunny at Jim's work.  His new company is very family oriented and they welcome family in for fun activities like the Easter bunny!
The boys played a little Hokey Pokey

They had a Bunny Trail that you had to hop through.  It was super cute.

They had snacks and treats for all the littles.
Daddy shared a cookie with Harrison.  It was his first cookie- that's pretty big!

And then it was time for the bunny!
Sometimes the costumes are a bit shady (this includes Santa, too), so I always explain to the boys that we're just visiting one of the Easter Bunny's (or Santa's) helpers and not the real bunny/guy, and thank goodness I did because Jackson saw the bunny adjust his bunny head.  He saw a guy in the suit.  He told me in the car, "I'm very sure that was just the Easter bunny's helper because I saw it was just a guy in a suit, mom." Phew, crisis averted.
I'm kind of wondering if Jackson is ready to know the bunny isn't real.  Maybe next year...
Anyway, I'm a bit surprised to announce that NO ONE cried!
Austin didn't want to sit on his lap, but no one cried.  Win!

Then it was time to color eggs.  Woot woot!
Usually I just use good coloring, but Austin found a Star Wars Rebels egg coloring kit, and Star Wars Rebels is the boys' favorite show, so we Star Wars Rebeled up some eggs!

We dyed eggs a little late this year, but we got the boys to bed just in time for the bunny arrive.

Austin was so cute when he saw his basket the next morning!

There was lots of excitement!

I think Harrison likes this whole Easter bunny/basket thing-

We had a big family dinner and my little brother came into town.  The boys love when Uncle Brian comes to visit!

But this visit was a really good one because he brought his girlfriend, Whitney, with him.  Whitney is super sweet and we all loved that she joined us this year, but Whitney's visit was most special to Jackson and Harrison.  Jackson told me, "Mama, I'm going to take Uncle Brian's girlfriend so she'll be MY girlfriend!"  You better watch it, Brian, he's on the prowl...
And Harrison was pretty enamored with Whitney as well.  He almost wanted Whitney as much as he wanted me that day.

After dinner we played the boys' new favorite game, Frozen Uno.
And then it was time for The Hunt!

Harrison even had a few eggs to find.
He squeeled and laughed the whole time!

Happy Easter 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.
