When our kids were born, we decided to do the party "hoop-la" every other year. We decided on even ages...so when they turn 2, 4, 6, etc we will have a party for them where they can invite friends, have activities, etc. Therefore, when Maddox turned one this year, we had just a family get together. We celebrated early -- on Feb. 7th -- because Uncle Day-Day was in town. Feb. 7th happens to be Maddox's Paw-Paw's birthday (my dad) as well. So we had two celebrations this day!
