"There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries."
I bought Camryn some "squeaky shoes" from a fundraiser for The Pearl River Outreach in China. It was run through one of the adoption websites. Families donated clothing, shoes etc. to sell. Prices were cheap and it was a good cause. The person donating the goods mailed you your selection. We got lucky and were sent many more shoes that we paid for. She told me that she had extra and just wanted my granddaughter to enjoy them.
I was so excited for Camryn to try them on. She LOVES shoes!! However, when she took her first step and the shoes squeaked, she stopped dead in her tracks and just looked at me. She didn't know what to do and was afraid to take another step. When I brought shoes home from our trip to China, all the girls loved them and just ran and ran to hear them squeak. Not Camryn, she wanted them off! I tried several times but she just didn't like them. When Troy came home, he got her to try them again and now she loves them too. Running "fast" like she does, really makes them squeak.
