          Today my little princess turned 3 years old.  Simply unbelievable!  I'm loving this age already, because she understands so much more each day.  Such an incredible time of discovery and growth in so many areas of her life.  This past Sunday afternoon, family and friends joined us in celebrating Addy Grace's birthday.  She has been talking about her birthday for weeks now, and was just overjoyed that she was actually getting to have a party for herself!

          Even though Christmas was less than a month away, new toys are always a plus during the peak of winter, along with cold and flu season... just seems to help fill the boredom from being stuck inside so much.  If you're needing great gift ideas for a 3 year old girl in your life, here are some of Addy's favorite gifts that she received:

Kid-Tough Digital Camera Case - Blue

This past Christmas, Addy's Granny gave her a Fisher Price Kid Tough Digital Camera.  It's the cutest little camera and she just loves it.  I've been so impressed with how easy it is for my preschooler to maneuver.  So naturally, her Granny sent money for her to receive the case as a birthday gift.  She loves getting to be like daddy, with a REAL camera and case. ; )

Melissa & Doug Abby & Emma Deluxe Magnetic Dress-Up

Melissa & Doug products are my absolute favorites when it comes to toys.  Forget the flimsy paper dolls like I had when I was growing up.  These are magnetic and stylish.  Adorable!  Thank you so much, "Nana" and "Ampaw!"

Crayola Ultimate Art Supply Case-Colors May Vary

In the past year, Addy has become quite the artist.  This little caddy came packed with everything "artist" that 3 year old's love-- glue, scissors, markers, paint, paper, pencils and crayons.  What I love is that it all stores away neatly in the case.  An anal-retentive organized mother's delight!

Barbie and The Three Musketeers Corinne Doll

Yep!  Her very FIRST Barbie!  "Corinne" Barbie made it into the elite sleeps-in-the-bed-with-me club.  Now that's a big deal.

Hermie & Friends: Milo the Mantis Who Wouldnt Pray

This little video is precious!  We've not delved into the Hermie & Friends series until now... but I can definitely say that we were instant fans.  The animation is superb and the message even better-- prayer.

I had forgotten how close Addy and my Emily are in age! Emily got the Kid Tough for her 3rd birthday (Dec. 9) and looooves it! And she has put it to the test, and it is as tough as they say! Happy (late) birthday Addy!
