I would have loved to show you photos of Gemma opening her gifts, but the lighting was so poor and the photos were terrible. I have a couple to prove to her that we did indeed celebrate her third birthday, but they are few and Not Very Nice. So, I am making up for it with a show-and-tell post about her gifts.
We tend not to go overboard with the gift-giving at birthdays, especially with the younger kids. Gemma has been enjoying the things she received for her special day:
beeswax crayons (much better price than those from Stockmar), a gift from her aunt and uncle.
Another book, this one from her Oma. The illustrations are full of the most amazing details.
And yes, another book by Gyo Fujikawa. I tell you, we can look at these every day and not grow tired of them!
My main gift to her was clothing for her favorite baby, Abbie. I made a selection of mix-and-match items.
Armadillo Dreams on Nicole's blog a while back. I was so impressed, I asked them if they would like to put their button on my sidebar. I'll be hosting a giveaway for them beginning this weekend, so stay tuned!
Etsy. Gemma loves shiny girly things!
And that's it!
