small style #30

# 30!? 

i have to apologize for being a terrible blogger this month. 
work has been a bit more tiring than it was initially and we have some family things going on as well.

you can just bet that one of my new year's resolutions will be to pick a regularly scheduled blogging evening a few times a week!

at least we have Morgan to thank for the small style posts!
woo hoo!

here is a little Christmas Eve small style:

Isla amoungst present chaos
miss Isla was full of shenanigans this holiday, 
hamming it up for everyone that she spent any time with.

Christmas Eve, she did not go to sleep as planned, but she just sat in her play pen until i came and got her for the family photo.

then she promptly stayed awake until we left at 10pm.

sure wish i had a pic of her in her car seat sleeping. 
Thom put her in, and she fell asleep even before we finished packing the car!

what a lovely little tiny.

my mom got her an outfit for Christmas, but it was too big 
(our almost 14 month old is still swimming in 12-18 month pants and skirts)

but the shirt and sweater fit, so that was paired with the stripey leggings that we love!

sweater: Gymboree
red shirt: Gymboree
pants: Gap Kids
socks: Old Navy
shoes: Pediped (finally used my Groupon to Kiddy Kobbler!)

we had a fabulous time with family, but we sure are glad to be home :)

you can find all kinds of christmas cuteness over at small style this week!

small style #29

small style, christmas tree decorating/home made pizza night making/night with friends/watching a funny movie with the Roebuck's

Isla loved the pizza.

Isla did not love sitting beside the tree to have her picture taken.
(but Isaac did!)

however, Isla did love the tackle hugs that Isaac gave her

we may not have gotten a true Isla and Isaac christmas tree picture, 
but we sure had a lot of fun!

long sleeve onesie: Carters, consigned
t-shirt: Joe Fresh
jeans: Gap Kids, consigned

i am sure am looking forward to next week's christmas style!

small style #28


with Christmas and work getting busier and busier, i almost forgot about small style this week!!
and really, i was so excited to show off this new little dress.

so here is miss Isla after our Church meeting on Sunday.

so cute.

this dress is divine!

i found it at Value Village for $3.99.

can you even believe?!?!   

dress: handmade, thrifted
tights: Zuta (or something!), from liquidation world in Campbellford for 99 cents!
shoes: Mexx, consigned

don't you just love when a cute outfit comes together for so little cost?
i think this one was a total of 7 dollars!

you know the drill :)

small style #27

small style number twenty-seven

featuring the serious rocker.....

well, not that kind of rocker...

Isla discovered the rocking chair thanks to her Gramma Kiki.

she doesn't really look like she loves it, but she seemed to enjoy it a lot,
i just wasn't able to capture that.

silly girl with those chubby cheeks.
so precious.

shirt: Gap Kids, thrifted
pants: Old Navy
socks: Old Navy
shoes: Wonderful northern slippers from Isla's great (grand) Auntie Susan

Isla has been wearing the same size clothes for quite some time, 
she still has some 3-6 month shirts that fit, she is wearing almost all 6-12 month pants, 
but she seems to finally be stretching out a wee bit,
 and plumping up too, so we may see the end of some of these favourites, 
like these stripey pants, they have ruffles on the bum and i love them!  
I know that it will be fun to pull out the next size, but it is a little sad to say good-bye to these ones.

some thoughts

i took a few days off of blogging post 30 Days Hath November, it was a very interesting challenge to put myself up to just at the same time that i was going back to work.
it was indeed some days challenging to remember to post, but it felt nice to be writing something every day.
some of the things that i truly enjoyed was:
Day #17: My Family - i'm going to try and post a family picture each month, a little portrait of where we are at, and what we've been doing.

and Day #15: Some Style Inspiration for the Season - i think doing the 'kids style' as inspiration was pretty genius for me, as i am always loving the cute clothes that kids wear. i may not make this a monthly feature, but expect to see it around again!

and a few others that i enjoyed and may play off of are: 

you can probably expect to see something more like: 
-something/someone/some blog that is inspiring/ me
-some quotes/scriptures/sermons that i've been hearing/listening to/inspired by
-something/someone i'm proud of/means a lot to me

thanks for reading last month!

small style #26

small style, weekend style.
my mom and aunt and my sister and her husband were in town this weekend.

Danielle and Alex brought along a belated birthday present for Isla.

but why open presents when there is tupperware to be had?
really, there is no contest.

they gave Isla a little musical play mat, she was pretty smitten right away.

as you can tell.

she figured it out pretty quick, even though the box said 2+, that's right folks, my girl is play-matting at a 2 year old level ;)

then she figured out she could walk on it too.

she had a great time, and we had a pretty great time just watching her.
sweet little thing.

dress: Joe Fresh, consigned
leggings: Gap Kids
socks: Old Navy
boots: Robeez
hair bow: Dollarama

i love small style.
check it out!
