One Year Olds Wear SHOES!

Poor, poor Gabbi Girl.  She went the entire summer without ever putting on a pair of shoes.  
Now believe me.... she had PLENTY!  Are you ready for this?  At one time at the beginning of the summer, I counted her shoes and she had... 
WAIT!  WHAT AM I DOING?   This calls for a contest! 
How many pairs of shoes do you think Gabbi Girl had at the beginning of the summer?!  Now don't forget; she has a big sister that I thought might be my one and only... 
and a first cousin who is the only little girl in her family and came on the heels of a tragedy, so she, too, was a BIT spoiled in the clothes department!  
Gabbi was the lucky recipient of Alllllll of those hand me downs.  Sooooo.....
HOW MANY PAIRS OF SHOES DID GABBI GIRL HAVE EARLIER THIS SUMMER (sizes 0-5!)
Believe me when I say it is an EMBARASSING number! and don't look down on me when I give you the answer.  If we have discussed this before, you are not eligible to play.  Be fair, now!  
The winner will likely get MoBeads.  I am kinda in a painting slump.  In fact, I need to know who ordered that september wedding canvas, as it is time sensitive.  If you had a time sensitive canvas, let me know and I will get right on it.  Otherwise, I am putting it all off until next week!  
Good luck.  And are those little pink shoes the cutest or WHAT?!  She was so proud of them!  Mo

My guess is 61!!! I loveeee her birthday pictures!!! I especially love the ones of her going down the slipping slide with her tongue out!! too cute!!

Sarah said...

I am guessing 57. And don't be one bit embarrassed! A girl can never have too many shoes! I have shoes I don't even have outfits for...and my one and only daughter STILL gets a ton-o-shoes and she is nearly 8!

My guess is 55! Girls can never have to many shoes! Gabbi is growing so fast! Enjoying watching them grow through your pictures!

Deb said...

My guess is...68 and I don't find one embarrasing thing about it!!!!

Vicki said...

Hello Mo,
I'm not much of a shoe person, but my daughter definitely has a problem in that area. I'm sure those shoes will be put to good use and maybe passed on to some other lucky little girls. My guess is 100!

My motto is: "If the shoe fits...buy it in every color!". With that in mind, my guess is 63.

Amanda said...

Lindsay said...

I know that gurl's got lots of shoes. And, I promise, I didn't peek when I was in her room! In fact, I could have won this contest had I snooped a little :)))) I am going to say 81. And, she better have a pair to wear with the FUN ruffle pants I'm sending her tomorrow!!! Yes, you read that right! They are done and going in the mail tomorrow morning. That's record time for me. Yay, Lindsay! I'll send you pics tonight! Can't wait to see your creation of coral!!!:))) I almost thought that Gabbi was Ellie for a split second. I think they are at that age where they are going to start looking like twins..... LOVE THEM!

Dottie Phillips said...

Well... Given that Brooke is an adopted only child, little spoiled girl and currently has 27 pair size 6 0r 7, I am going to guess that Gabbi Girl has 107 pairs (I used an algebraic formula to come to that conclusion ...righttttt lol. The girls are soooo cute! They are definitely starting to look alike!

Stacey said...

My guess is 63

Laura said...

My guess is 48. But I wont be surprised if it is more!

randdmom said...

I was going with 42, but it was already taken. So, 52. You can never have too many, by the way. And at that age, they will be outgrown while they still look good, so someone less fortunate will benefit from them too!!!

Rhonda said...

Gabbi looks like such a BIG GIRL sitting up in that ugly brown chair! My goodness ~ she is PRECIOUS!!!! I would love to just squeeze her and that big smile! My shoe guess is 108! I believe I am the only one over 100 so far but I can completely understand that because I have an only child little girl! Although my "little girl" will be 11 years old next week ~ now wearing more expensive tennis shoes than ME!

Raylee & Joah's Mommy said...

My guess is 128! (Note that adds up to 11)

Love those pink shoes on Gabbi! I'm going to say she has at least 155 pairs.

Kilgore Kids said...

I'm going to guess 54. A girl needs shoes to match all her outfits right?! She's a doll.

Mel in Michigan said...

My guess is 105. I had 2 boys so I did not get to buy all of the cutesy stuff like girly shoes. I know I would have bought a lot! lol

nineisenuff said...

My guess is 72. I have 3 girls, ages 7, 10, and 13. I know how fast the shoes pile up, especially those cute little ones!

Lisa said...

My guess is 103 pairs and don't be embarrassed (sp?) - how fun!

MaryH said...

I say 111 - just a thought - there are eleven's in there!!! Regardless, I love those pink shoes - she IS so proud - what a cutie - her party looked fabulous - you do such a good job celebrating your girlies' birthdays - and then any other kind of ocassion!

Kim said...

One year old....my oh my where does the time go!?!

I have not been on in a little while ~ I have been so busy, but have been missing my daily doses of MoJOY!! My first day checking back in and I get in on another contest ~ LOVE it!! Being we have two baby BIG girls for hand me downs (and we all know just how many different shoes we saw Miss Ellie in!), and my first guess was already taken....I will go with 97 (which is my first guess transposed!).

It's GOOD TO BE BACK!!
