Some of my rv redo

Before -- The old curtains and trim was so faded to pink and very yucky. So I yanked the trim panels and yucky curtains. Went shopping and bought material that matched the quilt set I bought to make curtains. The colors were hard to match but I did and used two colors to make the curtains quilt looking.

After -- Here is the after its hard to take a picture of the colors but it looks so much better in person.. And such a updated feeling.. And the curtains go all around the three sides being handmade they're much better since they are lined.
Well here's the update anyhow, and now that I've been able to scrub every inch from floor to ceiling and shampoo the carpet it feels brand new..
Oh and I did not sew them my self LOL I had them done, I can only take credit for the idea and color choices.


Fun Day

Well the girls had day off and I had two mares to get ultra sounded. We had fun both mares were good girls and that went well. My sorrel Kristy needed a dental. So that meant leaving her and bumming around town till they could get her done. So loaded up my bay mare Lady who is having a baby against my thoughts as she tends to be too studdly to get live covered she gave in and had a wild fling with Bucky LOL..
Anyhow when it came time to load up Kristy to go home that meant unloading Lady because Kristy can only ride and unload if in front stall other wise you have heck of time getting her out of a trailer. Anyhow at vets when she was done it was time when no one was there to help so I had a dilemma and had to give Gracie my personal mare that only minds me out of trailer and needed to get Kristy loaded in trailer not a one person job. Of course this was a thought I dreaded but Gracie is getting good at horses and we were in a pretty safe place so I handed over my wild spoiled child Lady(she not really just carries to many stallion hormones) and Gracie handled her like a pro and I got Kristy in and then Lady back in and well it was great to know that Gracie could handle a naughty horse.. This mare minds me great but can and will push around others not bad but loud screams and dances enough for a non horse person to get nervous. I seen her shove Gracie once and Gracie tugged on lead rope just right and Wola mare stood like angel. Remember Gracie is like 79lbs and this mare isn't tiny..

Well went home and both mares got new pens since not going back with the stallion. Lady went off to live with two younger mares to push around I'm sure. Kristy who is the pushed around mare went to live in with my coming 2 year old paint filly. This filly hasn't been in with a adult horse since she was weaned just other young horses and is getting pushy so Kristy can be a big boss and teach her a few things. The pictures of Kristy and the paint meeting kinda a neat one to bad both are in that nasty wool coming in stage or it would be a really neat picture.. I got the cold shoulder routine from Kristy upon finding out not going back in with Bucky so all shots were pretty much not look at me ones..

Tucker was having fun dancing with Sponge Bob, but Gracie was a tab afraid her friends might show up and see her up there LOL..

Kids Expo

Well a fun family day at the kids expo. Tucker got to see his favorite TV show character Sponge Bob. He went up on stage and danced and had alot of fun till it was time to go. We roped dad into going to so lots of fun. The girls played a tug of war thing and that was the thing they enjoyed the most. Tucker did cry when it came time to leave as it was to fun and didn't want to leave.

The wedding!

Had a family wedding Saturday it was so nice. Formal but not one of those staunchy kinds that makes you cringe when you think of the over spending many wedding turn out like now days.

It was my husbands sisters sons wedding. The kids had fun and Tucker had a bawl running around the church till it started. The girls were presents attendants. I love to see the men all teary eyed in the pews it makes you think they are more sensitive than they act on a daily basis.

My husband even brings a tissue as his sensitive side always shows at these events one of his truly endearing sides, shows they are very caring I think. Well anyhow all looked so nice, were not a daily dressy group its fun to see all spiffed up. Tucker likes Kent my brother in-law alot always glad to see him and he's a bibs/coverall kinda guy and since he was the father of the groom he was in a tux and it was looking very spiffy, Tucker took a double take. I got a super cute picture of the two of them together. My hubby sat most of the time so i missed getting any pictures of him this time sadly as he was all dress up and looking very handsome. Well the pictures are of the kids and one with Tucker and Kent, Tucker was all cowboy'd up in his jeans, belt and such.

When it all comes together..

We'll its been a week let me tell you.. I had me state kennel inspection and passed with few small fixes but nothing major and over all good one. We had a super nice bridal shower that was laid back for the most part and very fun, my mother in-law broke out all the fine crystal so on the fancy side but very relaxed I felt. My youngest had her 12th birthday today and had a great day and fun dinner out at Whiskey Creek so yummy!

And to the when it all comes together part -- My hubby took time out today to see how Gracie and Spyder are doing since we bought him in May he's not had a free enough day to go see them in action at lessons in a serious mode.. Well today was the day they seemed to just click and ride as one and no ununited look ever they were awesome and even trainers both of them told Tom that Gracie is be coming a excellent rider with this horse teaching her. This horse is skilled but makes her work on doing things the right way he's not a do it wrong I'll do it right for you kinda horse. He has taught her to be the boss and make him mind and when she does thing correctly he is awesome to watch.. He is a really great horse for her and she has really blossomed on him they will be quite a show team next year if all continues in this manner. They look awesome together his flashy black and white and her blond hair. He is very attached to Gracie I think as well and now that she has risen to the leader of the two they should keep improving.. My trainer was really complimentary to her as well so she was very happy to have his words and to have dad see them the day they did the best so far. And I really felt good as today was the windy day from you know where, I feared the day dad came the wind would fire Spyder up but nothing the wind did not bother him at all.. He is a good boy. Picture is of my daughters at a expo we took horses to a few years back fun at a Birthday to look back and see how the have grown. The filly we sold in that picture is a mom herself now for her new owners she got at that expo.

Andie & Roxie

Well Andie isn't always easy to capture long enough to get a video or movie of, but today I was lucky enough to get both. She was out playing with this years mini filly Roxie. The kids love playing with them as they can take them any where with out a adult. They turn out very tame and broke in the end. Well if any one's never heard a bloodhound bay listen to the loud noise in this video..

My Hubby The Hero!

OK I've wanted a camping trailer, 5th wheeler, living quarter horse trailer forever.. I didn't care at all which one.. I've drove him nuts since he knew me wanting one LOL.. Well the other night out of the blue I was presented with pictures of a Motor home(this I never dreamed I'd have that way out of the kind I thought I'd ever get).. Well next morning we planned one a trip to go look at it and buy it if it was OK since buying a used one you never know what it will be when you get there.. OK I was happy just to get to make the trip and well he liked it so we bought it!! This is a real big thing for my hubby as he is true farmer and camping well its not a thing and goes with a farm schedule.. I grew up camping and so its a thing I really love he grew up farming and the time for camping is really hard to fit in.. So he did this just for me and its a really sweet thing, he is my hero!! Well back to the motor home its 33 feet long so is going to be roomy and so much fun for the kids.. Its is a older model so I will be doing some updating but its in very good shape just needs some cleaning and it will be perfect..
