Meet Tinkerbell


This weekend Chris completed his second of two racing schools. You have to complete two weekends in order to race. Well as of Sunday we are officially ready to race. So far he only has two race weekends planned but that is fine with me Labor Day weekend is going to be a blast...

I took the girls up to see Chris turn laps on the track Sunday afternoon, Emma has been to the race track alot but this was Tatum's first trip. Tatum was actually very good as long as I was holding her...I was thinking she was going to hate the noise but it did not seem to phase her. Good thing because she is going to be up there watching her day more often, always a easier trip when everyone is happy.

While waiting for Chris to go back out on the track for his last laps, we were all just hanging out around his race car ( 91 CRX). Chris had some of his buddies helping him and I had come with the girls and Chris' Mom and Walt, so needless to say Emma had every one's attention when she announced that Daddy's race car was named Tinkerbell.

She was so proud and happy about the name that I think it is going to stick...We even wrote it on the back of the car in the dust. Emma shows that to anyone that she can get out to the garage with her...It is very sweet...

Now everyone knows what Chris has been working on with such dedication all winter long...I know the neighbors must have been wondering...he was in the garage with a heater until 2:30 sometimes...

So without further Ado meet Tinkerbell....

Now you just need some of that magic fairy dust to sprinkle on his car before he races for good luck! hahahaha! Congratulations to Chris!

Boy...if we lived closer I think our husbands would get along! My Chris fixed up a car for a demolition derby a couple of years ago. He loved it and the boys thought it was alot of fun too. Hannah on the other hand...covered her face the whole time and wnated to know when he would be done and safe. She told him she NEVER wanted him to do it again. I'm sure he will though. Everytime we drive by a cheap old car...you can see the gleem in his eyes!
Best of luck to Tinkerbell!

I wish I could be there so we could have smashed a bottle of champagne over Tinkerbell for her first run. Oh, wait...is that just for boats? Well, we would have fun with the champagne, anyway.
