Powder Puff is serious stuff

I think the whole I'm-a-girl-I-can't gene missed Reagan (thank goodness!) because the child prides herself in succeeding in all things masculine. Don't get me wrong, she loves her lip gloss, mascara and a cute little sundress; oh, and the multitude of little 8th grade boys chasing after her. But she has dubbed herself the "man of the house" and clearly has a gift of putting things together, taking things apart, carrying heavy objects and making things that don't work, work. She's as handy as a pocket on a shirt and we love her.

She also feels that girls should be allowed to play all sports so she jumped at the opportunity to play Powder Puff football this year just to prove that she could. Yeah, she's just a little hard-headed that way.

Her team won and won big. Afterwards she reminded me that she was a "beast" at football.

Yep, clearly the prettiest football-playing beast I've ever seen.

Haha..funny Helen-but oh, so true!!
Devin-please tell me that is not a big bruise on her arm in the last pic!!

Yes, Helen, you're right! Gina, did you notice Helen wrote "Anutie Gina" as in A Nutty Gina...LOL!! Love it! Nope, not a bruise just some sort of war markings to scare off the other team. She's unique.

HAHA!! I didn't notice...and I must say-it works either way!!
