I can hardly believe that my nephew, Maddox, will be turning four years old on Christmas Eve. The time has been a blink, in so many ways. But then, in others, life is totally different now than when that precious child came into the world. I'll never forget the day when I got the phone call that he was on his way. Since I'm a teacher, I was out of school for the holidays. At that time, it was December 23rd. I was feeling a bit under the weather, terrible, actually. But, I wasn't about to let a sickness rob me of the pleasure of being present when he was born. He put up a good fight, too. He didn't make his debut until almost 24 hours after I arrived at the hospital. It was a WHILE! So, he spent his first Christmas in the hospital.
For this party, his parents hosted the event at a local kids' fun place. It's a popular birthday spot, and Maddox and his friends had the BEST time! The party had a "super friends" theme, and the kids all received capes made by my grandmother as party favors. They were a hit!

This was most of the group. Some of them just couldn't be bothered with a picture once they got their capes on.
