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 totally new territory for them.


That night at the rehearsal dinner, we caught a picture of this adorable little superhero-


I posted this picture of Jim and me on Facebook because we're rarely dressed up these days...


but I didn't post the photo of this cute little creeper.
He's so dang cute!


I won't post too many pictures of the bride and groom because I don't want to steal their thunder, but I have lots of pictures of my littles!  ...and a few of the bride and groom too.

Well, first, you can't have a proper wedding reception without cake.


And a first dance.



And a mother-son dance.


So with all the dancing going on, I guess Jackson thought it was a good time to ask me to dance.  It was such an important moment for me, it was the first time one of my boys asked me to dance. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of that dance.  It brings tears to my eyes just thinking about that sweet boy asking his mama to dance.

Then, there was some line-dancing going on, and Jackson had no idea how to line-dance, but he got out there anyway!  Watch out, ladies, here he comes!



Harrison wasn't going to let Jackson get all the attention! 
I think he was break dancing...??


At one point, I see Jackson just sitting with some new friends, enjoying the night, and I thought, man, it's going by too fast.  Every time I look at Jackson, he looks more and more like a little man.  He's so much closer to being a teenager and farther and farther away from being a baby. 
My heart can't take it.


And I realized, I had no idea where my other children were...
I found Austin behind me.  He didn't want me to take his picture, so he was "shooing" me away.


Then, I found my youngest little guy, just standing by himself, taking a moment.


It was such a fun, beautiful night.  I'm so glad Whitney is officially part of our family, though we've felt like she was one of us for a long, long time now.
I'll end with this cute picture of Delaney, the flower girl, keeping Harrison entertained.

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?
Riiiiiiiiiight.

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!

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.
