So October came and went super fast! There was so much traveling back and forth this month that my car felt the most like home! LOL Picking out Halloween costumes gets harder every year! This was the last official year I decided to pick out Atley's costume, so I decided he would be Tow Mater and I would be Lightning McQueen! He is a total Cars fan right now!! Well of course I had to have a back up plan for him just in case he was in the " I DON"T want to wear that!!" Mood and so I got him a McQueen crew shirt and hat! The very first costume party that we went to (and we had 3) he did not want to wear Tow Mater so he was the pit crew and I was Lightning McQueen. This was the shirt that I painted and wore with a red tutu, black leggings and black converse! It was totally cute and could kick myself for not getting a better pick. Maybe I will just do a redo and put it on again and snap a pic. The shirt turned out great if I do say so!
This is a little blurry, ok a lot, but you get the picture! He is such a ham!!
Here is his Tow Mater costume. He really loved it when he finally wore it! My best friend, Candace, brought me a cupcake and they sang me happy birthday!! My loves!
This is the hubs and I in our Costumes for our annual Halloween party. We were
Clay and Gemma Morrow from our favorite show Sons of Anarchy! My best friend got me into this show and so I turned my husband on to it. It is just so addicting and we can not get enough of it!!
Atley and I spent our Halloween in the trailerhood with daddy so we did not get to go trick or treating.Atley and I did find a pumpkin patch at a local church and of course we checked that out. Atley had soooo much fun running around and picking out all the pumpkins. He just could not beleive how many were there. It was so much fun. watching him grow and experience new things is the absolute most awsome thing. He is so intrigued by everything and I just feel so blessed getting to spend every second with him as he is growing.
Searching for the perfect pumpkin!
He picked two baby pumpkins. He actually ended up getting three. One for him, one for momma and one for Clint. Clint is daddy's helper and Atley's best friend! lol
Before daddy got home to carve the pumpkins,we painted them with some red and blue paint!!
www.buyrv.com. Even though we did not buy a trailer from these guys it was our second option. Ok, so after the torturous search we FINALLY decided to go with www.exploreusa.com in Seguin Texas. Our sales man was Gabriel, and he was WONDERFUL. I went with out my husband on almost all these trips, of course he was working and had to leave all trust to me, and Gabriel understood that and did not try to push me on anything. I gave him my wants and needs and he drove me around to all the ones he felt would be potential candidates. It was a really good experience and that first day of looking around set the bar. I had it narrowed down to three trailers. Two were the Blackwood by Thor and one was a Big Country by Heartland. The Big Country was truly a fabulous trailer complete with all the bells and whistles. It had a rear kitchen which is very ware to find and is any trailer wives dream, but in the end we decided to go with the Blackwood! It is ABSOLUTELY wonderful! It accommodates our family so well! Of course with any big expense, the hubs had reservations a little at first, but he has settled down and knows it was a great decision!! Explore USA gave us a great deal on this trailer with no BS about it. I totally recommend them if you decided to purchase a new, or used for that matter, Rv. They have a ton of dealers in Texas.
This is a glance from the stairs into the kitchen/ living room. I love that everything is wood and there is no ugly material pattern on everything. The only thing about wood is that you have to dust constantley.
This is the bedroom. The closet was one of my fav things. It is SO BIG we could have put Atley's play pen in there! The bathroom is separate from the room and that was a must, so that Jamie doesn't wake me up when he leaves in the morning! It has a full size shower. the only thing that we didn't get was the tub :(
So, now that we have the new trailer, I spend countless hours cleaning it. I do not really know why other than i want to keep it as new as possible, and the more I can familerize myself with it. I have made a plastic table cloth for the table and covered the chairs with diffrent material so the tot doe not get his dirty little hands on everything. LOL

Its been almost a month since my last blog and that is definitely not the dedication that I wanted to have, so i am sorry!! A whole lot has gone on in the last month so this will be a long post! First and foremost our move to San Antonio has been wonderful!!! There is a wonderful RV Park right outside of SA called Braunig Lake RV Resort www.brauniglakervresort.com. It is only like 10 mins from SA and like 20 mins from down town.It has nice paved spots and roads, very good to walk and stroll on with the tator tot!! It also has a big pond/lake with a ton of ducks that Atley loves to run after and chase till they decided to fly away from him.
Of course we are not for sure how long we will be here but we are going to try to soak it all in that we can. It is a bummer that the hubby has to work weekends, he doesn't always get to go and do the fun stuff with us, but we try to save some things for him!! I guess that's it for now I have more to post but the wifi here is really slow so I have to do a little at a time!! Happy Saturday friends!!
