Cinderella

I read recently, "Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life." Now with our shoe story... MacKenzie has WIDE feet. I have been everywhere looking for shoes that fit her now that she's walking. I've been to Target, Wal Mart, Ross, Marshalls, Kmart and Payless Shoes and no shoes that are wide enough for her for everyday use. So I realized after all the looking I would need to go to Stride Rite. Well today was our big shoe buying day. I took MacKenzie into the store with only socks on because we were going to leave the store with a new pair of shoes that fit, and here they are...


Almost $50 later we found the cutest pair of leather shoes ever! I love them, but can't believe how expensive it is going to be to keep this girl in decent shoes... but what do you do? I guess I can pray summer comes soon and she'll love flip flops :)



Meanwhile, non related, but yesterday we carved our big pumpkin. Yes it will be gross by the time the 31st comes around, but Justin has to stay in Sacramento next weekend to get gassed... Don't know the specifics, but I'm sure we will find out later. This past Friday he experienced the feelings of pepper spray and for those of you wondering, he doesn't recommend it. Apparently you either laugh or cry... he laughed. Some of the other cadets in the academy didn't appreciate his laughter. Ask him about it sometime and you'll get a very entertaining story! :) All I know is when I picked him up in Bakersfield Friday night his eyes were VERY puffy!

Okay - I totally have to leave a comment! You 'member when YOU had to go to the "special shoe store", but for different reasons? As I recall, you had more of a length problem rather than a width problem. Like mother like daughter, huh! But seriously . . .$50!?!?!? You better bronze those babies, cuz she'll grow out of them like next week. Or, you can paint them red for her little brother to wear. Then it will only be like $25 per child per pair of shoes. That's not so bad. Khristie

welcome to the "my kids have fat feet" club. we've lucked out with nate lately and it seems like a 50/50 chance he'll fit the wide width shoes at regular stores. just wait a few years and they have that problem with clothes.... nate's got some pants that are super baggy through his thigh but i refuse to buy slim jeans that gabe can't fit on past his ankles!
