The Abraham Family’s Journey to Russia to Bring Home Their Daughter

She's Three!

I started this post in September of 2010 when my baby girl turned three years old. Better late than never, I guess.
Now, Lexi has been home for over two years and is still the sweetest bundle of energy. She has grown in so many ways. Her language has exploded and she talks non-stop. She dances and flips all over the house. Nothing can stand in her way when wants something. She definitely keeps us on our toes.

Sweet Princess, Alexis Katerina, you are loved beyond words. I thank God for you everyday!

Below are photos from Lexi's birthday party. She wanted a "Princess Mermaid" party. Other than that, her only request was her cake had to be all pink.

Cheese Dip and Cheetos - two of her favorite foods!

Nana brought the princess carousel pony rocking chair. Isn't it great!

#3 Pinata

I was looking for something more girly and pink, but Liam picked this number out. He was SO proud to show it to her that I couldn't say no.

Candy Grab!!! She knew exactly what to do!

The BEST birthday cakes are home-made. Our kids love creating their own cakes.

They may not be the most beautiful cakes, they sure make fun memories.

The bow on top was a music box that played Happy Birthday. Inside the box was a little prize for Lexi.

This is Lexi's BFF - Princess Jordan.

A spa fit for a Mermaid Princess and all her court.

Lexi also enjoyed playing in the fountains!

Present time!

Goodie Bag "Princess of Everything"

I had so much fun filling them with beaded necklaces, ring pops, princess silly bands, Disney Princes rings, and a mini lip gloss set (plus candy they collected from the pinata). Oh so very, very girly!

Close up of the oyster cookies from Family Fun mag. I forgot to put eyes on most of them, but the kids didn't notice. Lexi made the one with the pink pearl for herself.

This is how she spent most of her birthday... doing the Nestea Plunge!

My Beautiful Birthday Girl!

Kim, I can't believe how much she has changed. She looks like a beautiful Princess Mermaid. The boys look like they are truly enjoying having a sister also. I know mine do! Thanks for the updates!
