Spotlight on Ryleigh

The story that goes with this picture is soooo funny and I was waiting for Uncle Ryan to email with the details, but I will have to tell it to you from how I heard it..... The last full day in Florida was supposed to be uneventful.... Auntie Lisha and Grandma were going out shopping together, kind of a girls outing. The men on the other hand, were watching Ry (3) and Gracie (4). They had some oral histoy recording to finish and they needed it kind of quiet. So they set the girls up in front of a movie in the other room. They started recording and had many interruptions. One of the interruptions was Ry coming in to tell them that the girls had decided to cut each other's hair. When upon further inspection the men found that the girls had taken a bib wrapped it around each other, got a glass of water and a comb, and were wetting and combing each other. Uncle Ryan thought this to be a harmless thing. But, instead of the glass of water he got them a water bottle with about two inches of water in it, and went back the recording. The girls soon ran out of the water and could not get the sprayer screwed off but tried filling it anyway leaving about 1/2 gallon of water on the floor. They discovered that Fabreeze has the same effect as water and finished combing and spraying with that. They finished up by using the baby powder (which when mixed with the water made an amazing paste) This all going on with the men happy to not have many interruptions. Well pretty soon Gracie runs in and shouts..."Ryleigh's Bleeding" Somehow the two little girls had scaled the bathroom wall to reach the leg shaver grandma had left. Ry tried to shave her pit..... OR her b--by. No stitches needed, just a couple of band aids and two very surprised women who had to clean up the mess....
This is Daddy, Ry and Alex today in their fort.....Ry loved it. Daddy is the best fort-builder-guy.
She gets into everything... This just happened to be chocolate chips and sugar....

Kids, kids,kids......Our oldest who is now 8 , at about the same age as Ry decided to take one of Daddy's razors out of the garbage and try to shave his face, he got his lip and chin. No stitches either but what a bloody mess. We had to use super glue to keep the wound from continually bleeding. And he was the baby powder king...whenever I smelled powder and he was out of the room sure enough I'd find him with a bottle most of which had been emptied onto someone or into something. Enjoy the cute fun times and pray for their safety along the way. Wait for the exploration into your makeup.....take care hope all is well with the Homers.

I love the stories of Ryleigh! Her and Jake could really get into lots of trouble together. Jake loves to play in Handsoap... its amazing what he can coat in the house with one small bottle of Handsoap. Gotta love it... He is especially passionate about the Kandoo soap... THAT IS EVERYWHERE IN MY HOUSE!

Ok, I am still laughing! She is so funny. But I remember the great stories we have with razors! Parker shaved his half his eyebrow off once. Got to love it! There is nothing better then a fort! I loved to build forts. Sound like you guys are having a fun weekend. Love you lady!!!

In all fairness to the guys, they actually had the mess cleaned up by the time we got home. But it was so funny to hear them tell the story, and of course Ry had to show Grandma her "owie". Lesson to men: you can't leave 2 little girls alone, or you'll have to pay for the havoc they create!!

What a character! Kids do some funny (in hindsight) things. I'm glad she's okay!
