We were all in the living room occupied with games and food and opening gifts. Isabella was kinda just wandering around and playing, going up and down the stairs to the family room, etc. (She even fell down the stairs once...ooops!) My cousin-in-law, Vicki, was sitting closest to her and kinda kept looking out for her, chasing her around a little bit to make sure she didn't get into too much trouble, etc.
And then we noticed that we hadn't seen or heard Isabella for a little while, Tracey asked, "Where's Isabella?" (She really couldn't go too far but ya just gotta make sure). Vicki went to check on her and then we hear Vicki bursting into laughter. Isabella had found Cavelle's cigarettes and was taking them one by one and cracking them in half! OMG, we were all laughing so hard, especially at Cavelle, "Oh My! Those were my last pack too!" Devestatingly hilarious! Ya just gotta know Cavelle...she's the funniest.
We took a few pics of the incident...and I just noticed that the cigs were on top of a newspaper from a few days ago. The headline says "WHO DID THIS?" ha ha! How appropriate is that title??!!
I'm just glad this ended up being a funny story...on the other side of the spectrum, it could have just as easily been a very scary and dangerous situation with the lighter inside the pack. An old friend from highschool was seriously burned as a child in a similar incident. So if you're not accustomed to having small children around please make sure to have a conscience about putting those smokes WAY UP HIGH when they come to visit.
