Dedicated and Celebrated

This weekend was a super busy weekend for our family, and all the exciting stuff happened on Sunday.

First we got up early and dressed the Jude dude and Aubrey Lane in their matching outfits and headed off to church to meet the rest of the family for Aubrey Lane's baby dedication.

 This was the only family picture I could get with the kids kinda looking at the camera.

I bought Aubrey Lane's dress at a sweet little boutique in Zachary and I made Jude's jonjon to match.  I was so proud of them; however, Aubrey Lane's dress upstaged Jude's outfit.  Everyone kept asking me if I made Aubrey's dress because it was so beautiful.  And let me clarify: I DON'T SMOCK!  And honestly, I'm not sure if I want learn how to smock.  I would love to be able to put my name as maker on a sweet little smocked outfit for Aubrey Lane, but I really don't have the time or resources to do such right now.

Regardless, I have learned my lesson.  If I make a sweet outfit for one of my babies, I need to dress the other baby down or make sure they are both in homemade outfits, lol

She's such a sweet girl.

After baby dedication, we headed to the park for Jude's birthday party.
Jude LOVES anything Eric Carl so we did "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" themed birthday party.

 Jude had a blast playing in the park, and I think the rest of the children did too!
Maybe Jude had a little too much fun?  He slept through 30 minutes of the party.

My mom and other sweet friends held Aubrey Lane so we could play with Jude!

The park was too cool.  It is a handicapped accessible park with wide play areas and wheel chair ramps on the toys.  It also has a splash park which I should have told guests to bring swimsuits but I had no idea the temp would be near the 90's during mid October.

We had a great but exhausting day.  I feel so blessed that I got to dedicate my daughter to raise to love Jesus and celebrate another year with my sweet son, Jude!

Later that evening, I came home and told Aubrey that this week she will be 3 months old so it was time for her to roll over now.  I put her on her mat on her tummy and she rolled right over like all I had to do was ask her :-)  We were so excited!  

Despite the busyness, it was truly a great day.
