Jude is Blessed {Fun Weekend - Lots of Photos!}

Our fun extended weekend was more than lovely... it was blessed. I find myself using that word so often these days but it is really the truth. God is so good and we are praising him while we celebrate Jude and prepare for him.

Saturday was a beautiful baby shower for Jude that my mama-in-law hosted. She did such a great job! Here are some of the photos....

SO creative!!

Pretty Mama-in-law and I (plus Jude!)

Friend Hannah won the guess on how big my tummy was! 10 sheets of toilet paper :)

Just so many cute things! Including a personalized bible for Jude!

Laur reading "I'll love you forever" So special!

Phew! It was soooo much fun and really well felt overwhlemed with all the support and love from the Thurston family and friends. :) Thank you so much!

Josh and I then headed off to our little getaway adventure to celebrate his "birthday" and our last time away before Jude. So relaxing and Special!

 
 We had a lot of fun talking about the future and just being together!

And.... last night we had ANOTHER baby shower for Jude-ster at church. The ladies at our church love to support life and it is such a great joy to be a part of a beautiful community of women. What a joy! They spoiled Jude big time and we had so much fun...

 
A sweet friend of the family, Andrea led a devo for Jude. It was so special! She has 3 boys!
 
Yay!! :) Jude will hopefully sleep through the night.... 

Wowza.... blessed is all I can say.
Simply blessed.
