Nice to Meet You, Zachariah!

The Puglette family has a new member today. Hubby's youngest sister had a baby boy! He is beautiful, like his big sister Abby. We are so excited to meet this little boy. We have to wait a bit before we will get the chance. Zach and his family live in Indonesia. His daddy is the principal of an international school there. His mommy is the fourth grade teacher.

I am sure that Zach will learn about his extended family while we all wait. Zach's big sister, Abby, would look at photos on a computer and learned to recognize the family. When we saw her in July, she knew our names and we weren't total strangers. I think that was so cool! Teachers, such clever people! Abby just turned two last month.

Isn't he just the cutest!

I went shopping with Dear Daughter today. We had a lot of fun. We went to downtown Olympia, WA. Olympia is a very nice place. It is our state Capital and is very pretty, with lots of parks, waterfront, old government buildings. The downtown area is full of cute shops in old brick buildings. Olympia is kind of indie hip, not trendy hip like Seattle. We walked around and looked into some fun shops. Lots of cute stuff out there. We were both getting inspiration for future crafty projects.

Daughter is very crafty and artistic. She is very good at composing pictures with what ever materials she has at hand. She liked the art supply stuff, scrap booking materials best. I was looking for something to use as a knitting / crochet bag / purse kind of thing. I saw some awesome bags out there, lovely leather bags with hand appliqued designs. I would love to have several of the ones I saw, but they were quite expensive. I was just excited to get a tank of gas for $42.00! That was my big splurge today. The day with daughter was fabulous, just for being a day to giggle and look at all the cutesy stuff for as long as we wanted. Thanks, Honey!!


  1. Good morning!
    What a wonderful post! Congratulations on the new addition and your day shopping with your daughter is wonderful!

  2. Congrats on your new addition. What a cutie, he is. So calm, just looking at the camera. We are glad you had a wonderful day with your daughter. Those kinds of days are to be tresaured. Mom was psyched she only spent $31.00 on gas. $2,89/gal. Wow!
