Maddux Turns Four!

For Maddux's birthday he had a very simple list of demands. #1. A countdown until his actual birthday. We started at 68 days before June 28th. Holy cow we have been counting down forever!

Demand #2. Blueberry pancakes.

Demand #3. Monster/Dinosaur rain boots. (Thanks, Mom!!)

Demand #4. A Brobee birthday cake. It's huge. It's green. It was perfect.

My little guy is four. It's hard to believe. This year he got Matchbox cars, a Razr scooter and Legos for his birthday along with the rain boots. No more Little People or Diego figurines. His toys this year just seemed so grown up.

When asked what he wanted, he said: "I want a box. A big box. And when you open the box, action figures jump out at you. THEN you have to chase them or they chase you! Can you get that for me, mom?"

I love that about him. His crazy imagination. That is just one of the many things that I love about him. I am so lucky to have such sweet kids. So lucky.
