Vicks

Well, I've learned not to leave Vicks within reach of Payton. Lately we've been calling her 'go-go gadget arms' because she seems to be able to grab ahold of anything and everything. Once she got the jar of Vicks open she decided it would look best in her hair. This made for a lot of good laughs.......







I tried washing it a couple of times and it still looked greasy greasy but we were heading to my niece's first birthday party so I thought I'd see if anyone had any suggestions on how to get all the Vicks out of her hair. Both of my sisters married farmers so they had tons of ideas. Shawna put cornstarch in her hair (I'm not sure why, but they use this on cattle....so they tried to see if it would work on Payton - and it did look a lot better! My mom also suggested using Dawn, so we washed her hair with that and it seemed to help too). Here's Payton with the cornstarch in her hair - when my 2yr old niece Laney saw her she told Payton she looked BEAUTIFUL! Payton had a ball with this....although she is still a little 'greasy' looking.



This is my niece, Ellie, who had her 1st birthday party Saturday evening. She is such a doll and so much fun. I think that was actually the first birthday party she and Koen both had been to - and as you can see, they seemed to enjoy themselves.




I don't have any pics of Ellie diving into her cake - she didn't care for it too much-but here's Koen smashing it into his mouth. He, ofcourse, loved it.

Oh my word, those pictures are hilarious! Wow, I never thought about trying to get Vicks out of hair but I guess it doesn't just wash out. Did the cornstarch work?

Too funny about Payton's hair! I had a friend whose son did that once. She washed his hair nine times, still couldn't get all the gunk out, and just buzzed his head. I hope you got the Vicks out!!

LOVE the pictures. I'm laughing and remembering the day when Michaela got a hold of the Vaseline, and you guessed it....in the hair! What is it with these kids and putting that gunk in the hair?! Now that took forever to get out, never would have thought to try corn starch.

Ha! Ok don't quote me on this but someone told me mineral oil for vasaline in the hair...cuz Avery got a hold of a jar but thankfully none in her hair like Payton!
