Katie's new shoes

It is a tradition that my parents get each grandkid their first pair of shoes for their 1st birthday. Today Grandma took Katie to buy her shoes at Snydermans. This is a local place that all of our kids go to for their shoes. I remember going there as a kid. Katie picked (with Mom's guidance) an adorable pair of pink Stride Rite shoes.

Here she is getting sized. 5 1/2 wide! Emily and Sarah were both 4 1/2 wide and Ty was 5 wide.

Even though it was Katie's special moment, all the kids came along. (everyone needed shoes, so it was good to get them all at once.)

Trying them out. She went right back to crawling at first, but we have made her practice a little and she is walking in them now. They seem so big on her. Proudly showing off her new shoes!

WOW...where has the year gone? I'm so thankful I could come visit you in the hospital, even if I forgot my camera BOTH times! I love the post with the pics from when they were younger and the invite pic--too cute (was that an e-vite? I want to see it...can you scan?)!

You'll have to repost a comment for on my vacation blogs, b/c that was just a temp post, b/c the pics were all messed up...but no worries...I got it fixed--just up until after midnight for the 3rd night in a row...NOT good!

Chat soon,
