Sunday Snapshot: 8

Today Jude turned 8.



We headed out after church to buy supplies for the big celebration.

Because what the birthday boy wants, the birthday boy gets.

As long as this mama can buy it at Target.


His choice for dinner was bratwurst and homemade french fries.

Dessert was yellow cake with red icing and birthday blast ice cream. Served on Justice League plates.

Decorations included red balloons…

and mustaches.


The birthday boy requested I take a picture of him in all three colors – red, green and blue.

And so that’s just what we did.


Happy Birthday, you precious thing. I am so crazy blessed to be your mama.


For giggles, here is an oooold video I took of Jude when Victoria and I were in China bringing him home. He was 16 months old and cute as a bug. And I crack up every. single. time. I watch it. Which is a bunch.

Man, do I love this kid.

  3. Okay… those glasses and mustache snapshots are BEYOND cute! And now I think I’m coming over, so that you can bombard my brain with THIS IS HOW YOU GET A BLURRY BACKGROUND AND A SUBJECT WHO IS IN FOCUS WITH YOUR CAMERA, WITHOUT USING YOUR GIANT TELEPHOTO LENS. I’ll probably leave your house not understanding a word you told me, but at least I’m pretty certain we’ll have a good time chatting over coffee. I’m still loving your blog… all the snapshots of your kiddos are simply precious. Jesus blessed you with some cute pumpkins.

  4. You seem to be on a steady stream of birthdays…. best wishes to this adorable little chap


  5. Happy Birthday Jude!! What a handsome guy.
