Kansas Speedway

Dave's dad was gifted a package to the NASCAR Kansas race last year.  The package came from a charity auction that Jamie McMurray donated to benefit the Joplin Tornado survivors.  Jamie McMurray is from Joplin, MO.  The package included six tickets all with hot passes.  The hot pass basically gave you access to everything including the pit areas.  They also got to meet Jamie and all took turns sitting in his pit box during the race with the team owner and pit crew manager.  Dave was in heaven.   I used my Studio Calico November kit Sock Hop.  Below are two more layouts I also did about the day.

New Years 2012

A fun layout of all my crazy friends ringing in the New Year.  Can you tell we had lots of free beer to drink (thanks Jessie and Greg)?  I used my November Studio Calico Sock Hop kit.  P.S.  Ann was pregnant at this celebration AND SHE HID IT FROM ALL OF US.  I still claim if I was not so drunk I would have figured it out, all the signs were there!  Damn you beer :) and the hangover I had all day Sunday.

Another quick layout with my November Studio Calico kit Sock Hop with a scraplift of this great layout by Maggie Holmes.  These two little girls are so so close in age and when they get together there is lots of mine and pushing and shoving going on.  But Allison loves Hannah to death and is constantly asking about her and wants to see pictures on my phone.  Monkey see monkey do would have been a great title for this layout too.

We are Family!

Another layout of Jessie's wedding!  I used this sketch by Basic Grey for inspiration and my Studio Calico November kit Sock Hop.  New Years will never be the same after this awesome wedding... this group spends New Years together (for as long as I can remember) in different cities and this one was one of the best yet.  Now this year....WE NEED PLANS!

Halloween 2011

A quick layout of my kiddos last Halloween.  My stack of 2011 pictures is dwindling!!!  Which is good because I plan on doing a December Daily again this year so probably no layouts in December and I would like to finish out my year behind scrapbooking before the new year!

Jessie's Wedding

Ahhh Jessie's this was a fun weekend.  I used a layout from 2012 Latest & Greatest a class by Embellish It at CKC St. Louis.  I think this is very appropriate since Jessie used to go to these conventions with me, very fitting.  Now I need to scrapbook the reception, which was the best way to ring in 2012.  Scott did an awesome job capturing all of us having way to much fun with too much free alcohol involved.

Summer Fun

A quick layout with a Basic Gray layout kit I won off their blog awhile back.  This picture is last summer at Cindy's pool.  It is the group grand kids, Jamie's girlfriend's grand kids...I need to add that to the layout some how.

Pumpkin Fun

This one is the right season just last year's pumpkin carving.  I used my Studio Calico October kit Roller Rink and a layout by Geralyn Sy for inspiration.  Quick and easy.

Pumpkin Patch

A 2 pager of the girls with pumpkins grown in Grandpa's patch last year.  Grandpa had a pumpkin patch this year too, and got an over 80 pounder.  It is funny seeing the girls in their underwear with a pumpkin layout but they would have planted them in July to get pumpkins by Halloween.

Steam Engine Show

David loves to attend the Steam Engine show every year in Republic, MO, I think it is like Christmas to him. This year it was a mud pit but we made the best of it and had a good time.  I used my Studio Calico October kit Roller Rink (yeah me!) and a free 8x10 Walgreens collage that I just picked up.

Ha Ha Tonka

Yeah another layout with my Studio Calico October kit Roller I won't feel bad when my November kit shows up next week.

I love this place....for as long as I can remember, trips to Lake of the Ozarks always included trips to Ha Ha Tonka.  On this day we didn't get to explore a lot but we got to see the most beautiful part, the spring.  I can remember as a kid jumping off the cliffs into the cold spring water....yeah you can't do that anymore.  The castle is a hike straight up the hill, maybe next time we make the trip.
