A lovely Swedish shop for little ones: 'Little Cute Mokkasin'... Of course I can't read a thing on the site, but the images are inpsiring none the less... A picture is worth a thousand words, isn't it?
A few pictures of our little beauty! She's thriving and doing well at nearly two weeks old! We are truly blessed and enjoying (nearly) every moment!

Two wonderful ideas for making your own Memory games... Enjoy and happy weekend!
Back in September, my mom was wondering what to get the girls for Christmas... She wanted to get them suitcases... The night before she'd visited, I'd seen these Lalé suitcases online... I showed them to her and she was just as pleased as I was... I love the vintage inspired fabrics... And think the girls will be hang on to them years beyond needing grown-up luggage... We were even more excited to find them stocked at shop from Montreal (no duty, yeah!), "Mini Bulles"!
One night while on the web, I came across these perfect little pouches from 'Giddy Giddy'... Brennah has been asking each Sunday if she can bring a purse to church, but we really don't have anything that works... And of course, Leah being the little sister, she wants to do whatever her big sister does... I was smitten with octopus and Jay loved the pink bird... So we ordered them... They arrived quickly, in lovely packaging and I was more than thrilled! Why not head over to 'Giddy Giddy' and see if there is something that tickles your fancy... And then when you're done, head over to their blog, full of amazing ideas for kids!
It took a long time to decide what to get my girls for Christmas this year... And as with most years, I began planning back in August... I like Christmas... And I love trying to pick out the perfect gifts for the people I love... While watching 'Treehouse' one day, a character on one of Bren's favourite shows went camping... She promptly declared, "I want a sleeping bag"... Most evenings I spend 15-20 minutes cleaning up the girls numerous toys in their playroom... So I was thrilled that she was looking for something a little more practical and a little less cumbersome to clean up... And thus began my search for the perfect sleeping bags... I thought they would be perfect for sleep overs, trips to the cottage and watching movies tucked inside on a cold winter night... These are the sleeping bags we settled on for the girls this Christmas... How pretty are they?
She's here... Early Saturday morning, after about 11 hours of labour, another sweet little girl joined our family! We are thrilled to welcome Olivia Kate Wagler and thank the Lord for another gracious blessing!
Still no baby... Today is my due date... I had hoped and prayed that this little one would come early as Leah did... But the Lord has had other plans... I take great comfort in the fact that the Lord knew the day and moment of this baby's birth before there was time... And I'm sure He trying to teach my ever impatient self to be patient and wait on His timing! That said, it's been a long few weeks with many moments of "Is this it?"... And so we wait... And while we've been waiting, I've been trying to work away at my girl's yearly albums... I finished Leah's second year album a few days after she turned two and then decided to go back and re-do Brennah's first year album... I hope you enjoy! I'll be sure to pop in here with the news, once this baby decides to finally join us... The girls are bursting with excitement, as are we...
(I downloaded most of the elements used in Brennah's book from 'Design House Digital's FREE Designer Blog Hop)
I wanted the arrival of this baby to be extra special for my girls... So I put together Big Sister Kits for each of them... An assortment of exciting goodies in cute canvas bags with a special card, wishing them each a "Happy Big Sister Day"... I filled the bags with colouring books and tiny pencil crayons, candy, small toys, slings for their babies, and of course, disposable cameras (I can't wait to see what they'll capture)... It was such a joy to put these together! Happy weekend friends!
This time around, I'm determined to get some memorable newborn photographs... I'm hoping that Brennah and Leah will cooperate with some really wonderful sibling photos as well!
