My nephew Maddox turned three on Monday. We celebrated with a small family party at my in-laws’ house last Saturday.

On Saturday morning we woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow which was quite fitting considering how the little guy made his entrance three years prior.

In addition to snow, we had plenty of good food, cake, and presents.

I made him a Mike from Monsters Inc out of fleece and felt as well as a race car-themed ‘M’ for his wall. Both super easy and cute. Both Pinterest inspired.


Crappy iPhone photos were inspired by laziness.

I feel like these next three photos capture Maddox’s relationship with Uncle Jacob and Aunt Jessi pretty well.

I had been especially weepy because we were deep in mourning for our friends so I made sure to get in extra hugs all day whether or not the birthday boy was having it. The little stinker.

Happy Birthday Maddox! You are so loved!

    Great pics as always! I’m pretty sure I’ve been a follower for as long as Maddox has been around…I should get a prize or something :)

    Oh and poor Alex…ugh…my heart sank when I read her post the other day. I just can’t imagine the pain her and Josh must be going through. I can’t stop thinking about it…hug her extra tight next time you see her for me.

      Thanks Stephanie! If you ever find yourself in Northwest Arkansas, I’ll buy you a beer for being such a loyal blog friend :)

      I know that Alex appreciates everyone sending their love, I’ll let her know you are thinking of her. She and Josh are so strong, I just wish there was something we could do.
