Halloween Wardrobe Change!

We are blessed with a really big family. And with really big families come alot of holiday outfits! Halloween is no different and Jude was sent a few. Of course I bought a few things as well. :)

"First Halloween" outfit

Little Monster

He found his feet and can't get enough of them.

This is his "OMG if you change my outfit one more time I'm going to lose it" face. He really was over it.
All in all it was fun changing his clothes into all of his outfits but unfortunately he can only wear one tonight. And which one did he wear? None. He's in a diaper passed out on the couch while the trick-r-treaters are grabbing candy from a bowl I left on a bench on the porch. My baby is napping and missing all of the handing-out candy fun. That's ok though. We had ourselves a Halloween Fashion Show!

Happy Halloween!!

Today is Jude's very first Halloween. Unfortunately, John has to leave overnight for work so we dressed him up last night for fun. We opened up the Halloween candy and pulled out the camera! 

The cutest duck I've ever seen...

Night of a Thousand Pumpkins..

*These pictures were all taken with my phone camera*

John, Jude, Riley, and I went to Folsom for their "Night of a Thousand Pumpkins" festival. It's a small town that closed down their main street and the shops had trick-r-treating for the kids. We had a pretty good time. Jude did not want to be carried in the baby bjorn, which was a bit frustrating because trying to maneuver a stroller on a very crowded street wasn't at all fun. We ended up finding a place to sit to people watch. We had a great time and actually stayed out until 8pm. :)

They had an outdoor movie. People brought chairs, blankets, and there was a popcorn machine for the movie-goers.

Posing in front of 10 pumpkins, yet my husband only got 1 in the picture. Hehe.

I am not going to worry about bottles,
 or taking out the trash,
 or doing the laundry.
Today, I am going to
 play, relax,
 and completely enjoy my son.
I love you, my sweet Judebug. Nothing will ever be more important than you.

Jude's Baptism

Jude's baptism was wonderful! I'm happy we were able to share this day with some of our family and friends.

This isn't the best picture but Jude was smiling in it.

 Many of our friends were able to join us and it was such a fun time mixing family and friends.

Our Families Visit

John and I had family who visited this weekend for Jude's baptism. It was wonderful seeing everyone and we had a really good time. David and Thelma has some flight issues, but they finally made it in Thursday night. Parrain (godfather) Bob flew in Thursday morning. Annie and Linda flew into San Fran and they had a mini-vacay. On Friday, John's parents, Bob, Jude, and I all drove to Napa and spent the day with Annie and Linda. We met for lunch where Annie met Jude for the first time.
