On Friday we celebrated as Maddox turned 3. We only give our kids birthday parties on the years they turn even ages (2, 4, 6, etc). Since Maddox was turning an odd numbered age (3), we just celebrated at home as a family.
Maddox picked out popcorn chicken from Publix for his meal and a Nemo birthday cake. MeMaw, PawPaw, and Uncle DayDay came for dinner to celebrate.
We played outside for awhile. It was a beautiful evening.
We ate dinner and then Maddox opened his presents.
Next we enjoyed cake and ice cream.
Maddox had a great day. There were lots of special things for him -- a celebration at his school with cookies, our family dinner, gifts from friends that came throughout the day, and special spending money from Grammy and Auntie Phyl.
I feel so blessed to have Maddox. He is an adventure for sure...keeps you on your toes. Yet, he is tender, smart, silly, has an amazing sense of humor, and is a dear friend even at the age of 3. What a blessing!
