Another quick layout I put together last night.  I used a super saver layout from Scrapbook Generation. I have two more layouts from that if I have photos to match?

Grandpa's pumpkin patch is in overdrive this year!  We went by this past weekend to check it out and Oh my the pumpkins are huge. I am talking over 20 pounds some even 50 pounds.  I am talking state fair worthy.  They are definitely not carvable.  I guess we will have to paint some jack-o-lantern faces this year.

I actually got away for a short time this last weekend to attend a super saver class at my local scrapbook store Scrapbook Generation.  I did some shopping too which earned me a free page kit....which I used on this lovely layout of Ashley doing some gymnastics.  I love it when a layout is pretty much laid out for you, all you need to do is some cutting and gluing.

Two layouts in one night!!! Well the snow layout had been on my desk for awhile and just needed gluing down.  On both layouts I finished off my Studio Calico August kit Sandlot.  My September kit is here and I'm ready to create with it!  James' 1st Birthday layout was inspired by this layout by Andrea.

Snow in was crazy and it snowed multiple times that day.  It was a very wet snow and didn't stick around but it definitely snowed in May.  The girls had fun playing in it after dinner at the Club.  I think my favorite part of the picture of the cousins is Allison looking at everyone else. For a good year she never looked at the camera.  Allison so wants to be doing what everyone else is doing, so she is always looking and following everyone else.

A quick layout I did last night with my Studio Calico August kit Sandlot and this layout by Ginny for inspiration.  There is on tiny little mistake....Trinity is 9 in this picture but she is 10 now, oh well.

Oh Trinity you sure do have a personality.  Anytime you say squirrel, chipmunk or rabbit she tilts her head like she is saying "Where?"  Being 10 she is really starting to slow down but is still in great shape and is pretty active for her age.  We love her!

Lake Air Show

A two pager using my August Studio Calico kit Sandlot!  I need to get 2013 in the books so that I can concentrate on all the mini albums that I have half complete.  I need a Saturday away to get some of my projects done!

After Labor Day the Lake really seems to slow down and the water starts to cool off so we are always looking for fun things to do with the kiddos.  I had picked up a postcard for an Air Show at the Camdenton Airport early in the summer and told Dave we needed to plan to go.  I am so glad we did.  It turned out to be really great and the crowds were not too bad.  They had lots of stunt planes, old military aircraft and even a turbine car that made lots of smoke.  They even raced a car and airplane, fun for everyone!  I am looking forward to the Lake Air Show this year!
