With her due date just days away, Jessa (Duggar) Seewald and her husband Ben recently celebrated their upcoming parenthood with a beautiful fall-themed baby shower at a friend's barn. As per usual, the event was a family affair, including both families as well as friends who wanted to congratulate the happy couple, according to Us Weekly. You can click through the photos above to see the event and read on for all the details.

Because the baby is due November 1st, guests dined on hot dogs, cooked over a large fire pit, and finished the meals with a pumpkin-themed dessert bar, including pumpkin cake balls and pumpkin pie. The group washed everything down with pink lemonade and blue Hawaiian Punch, since the couple is keeping the baby's gender a secret.

But the couple also added a bit of friendly competition to the day with three different contests: a milk-drinking competition for the guys, a diaper-changing race for the ladies, and a baby food-making challenge for Ben and his good friends.

Each guest brought a written prayer for the couple, and you can tell that Jessa and Ben have a village of people ready to help raise Baby Seewald.
