Where to begin? Recaps & Happy Birthday MAMA!

I feel extremely behind in blogging so I am going to write a brief update on the past week :)

First... Happy Birthday to my Mama! She is amazing and full of life. I pray that this year is one of increased favor and joy. We love you Mama!!!!

 

This past Christmas Week has been a whirlwind of activities... lots of celebrating!

 
Getting together with Friends - Katty (one of my bf's) lives in Seattle

 
Thurston Family Sleepover. Fun with my sisters Laur & Steph!

 
Working on Jude's Nursery... this is your sneak peek :)

 
Lenzen Family Weekend Away at a hotel in Stillwater. Awesome relaxation!

 
Love my pretty sister Jonna! :)
 24/7 time spent with my handsome hubby and Jude = amazing!

 
My Dad and Josh with the finished crib. They put it together this past week!

 
Baby Jude's first Christmas present! A bear we built him from build-a-bear!

 
Treats in our room at our Family Thurston Sleepover!

 
Lots and Lots of games.... :) Two family sleepover/hangouts = many games played!
Christmas & New Years were great this year and of course just flew by. As I reflect and recap them I am blown away by the message of God's amazing love for us. For me it was displayed through my family and friends. What an amazing gift! 

This week.... my main focus is going to be EMPOWER 2012. It is a ladies conference that I have the honor of helping plan and it is this Saturday. God is so cool in bringing it all together we can't wait for each lady to experience the power of the Holy Spirit through learning they are TREASURED. You can still sign up if you are in the area!! :)


I might be MIA but know that it's because God is taking my moments this week and really aligning them with his for this conference. Lots of prayer happening this week, will you join me?

Looks like you had a busy holiday week! Family time is always the best. I wish I could make it to the conference but my sister's birthday party is this weekend and my baby cousin is scheduled to arrive so it should be a busy one for us! Sending prayers your way that you all have a great conference!
