Maceo will be turning 13 soon. We consider this to be a milestone birthday, one that deserves special recognition. We typically keep our birthdays simple with the birthday child being surrounded by parents and siblings only. Although these celebrations are treasured we wanted to do something a little larger for this special birthday.
We threw him a Carolina Panthers football party complete with goal posts, turf and a concession stand.
And we invited extended family members to celebrate with us and to be present as witnesses as we guided Maceo across the threshold into young manhood.
I will do a separate post on the words spoken over Maceo during this time.
It was a joy and love-filled day!
We all love you, Maceo!
