The Turners

An old photo that I think I got off a CD Jamie had made.  I used this layout by Becky Novacek for inspiration and my Studio Calico December kit Blue Note.

Lake Flying

Yes yes it has been awhile.  I have no 2013 photos printed so I haven't been scrapbooking.  But I ordered 240 prints last night so we should be in scrapping mode soon!  To prove that I haven't been scrapping this is my Studio Calico DECEMBER kit Blue Note.  I need to use this kit up and my January kit before February arrives on my door step next week!

Ah boys and their toys.  David and his buddies love their RC planes.  The weather has been to windy and cold to fly them but they still talk about it all the time.  There might have been a small helicopter flying around in the basement this past weekend to help with the addiction.  So David bought floats for one of his planes so he could fly it at the lake and land it on the water.  He tried flying at our house but didn't have enough room in our cove, so we packed up and headed to Scott's where the cove is much bigger. He had lots of successful take-off and landings and only one water rescue.

2013 December Daily: Day 22

On the way back home after the weekend in St. Louis we meet the Resniks in Union for lunch. Of course the kids were happy to see each other.

2013 December Daily: Day 21


Oh the craziness of Christmas has begun!  David and Ashley meet Allison and me in St. Louis after work and school on Friday.  Then Saturday we had our first Christmas with my Dad's side of the family at my Aunt Joannes.

2013 December Daily: Day 20

I was still in St. Louis for work.  I had a bid due in the morning and then it was our annual Christmas work party.  It was nice to get to see and visit with everyone.

2013 December Daily: Day 19

I headed to St. Louis for work and Allison went with me.  Allison got to spend a day with me at work and then she went to her Aunt Suzie's house for the night so I could attend a fabricator Christmas Party.  Allison had a blast and still talks about it weeks later.

2013 December Daily: Day 18

Oh how I love Pinterest.  I signed up for a healthy snack for Ashley's class Christmas party and went straight to Pinterest for ideas!  I would have loved to make something with fresh fruit but I had to go out of town for work and had to premake these so the cheese Santa it was.

2013 December Daily: Day 17

Bass Pro Santa is crazy!  I went to get a fast pass (a time to wait in line given out in 30 minute intervals) after I dropped the girls off at school and they were all gone. WHAT?????  This is serious business apparently.  I guess you have to be there at 6:30 AM when they open the doors.  Some nice couple was returning their 4:30 time slot and I grabbed it up with lots of thank yous! This was the only night we could go see Santa before Christmas so I was a happy camper.  We had to rush to get there before 5:00 when the pass expired.  Good news was that the fast pass line was empty so we stepped right up to the big man, but Allison was not happy.  I think if we could have waited a little we could have given her a pep talk and she could have observed others visiting with Santa.  Oh well.  They both got their requests in and Allison was happy to be held for a picture.

2013 December Daily: Day 16

 Bear with me as I try to get caught up.  Yes I am behind on this project.  I have through the 22nd finished!!!! I have photos and journaling up to 26th, just need finishing touches now. I have photos sent for printing and rough schetches to finish out the month.  Soon very soon I might be finished.

Our annual gingerbread house making.  The girls started asking to do this the minute I bought the kit which was in November.  We finally had a night at home to work on it.
