Pumpkin Patch!

We woke up to a beautiful, chilly Fall morning this morning and I decided to take Brogan to the pumpkin patch! We met our friends, Nib and her daughter Kenadie, there and they kids had SO much fun! We got pumpkins, apple cider slushes, rode the little train (mom's included), and jumped and jumped in hay! Brogan couldn't get enough of the hay bales! But he kept insisting on riding the train. So...we did. WE did. He wanted no part in riding alone so being the nice momma I am, I hopped in! The thing kept making squeaking sounds but the 'conductor' told me it was normal. Thank the Lord cause it almost gave me a complex!

Here are a few pictures from our morning! We hope to go back this weekend or even try our a bigger patch close to here!

Our Night With Baby Sloan!

Last night I got to babysit my niece, Sloan, for the first time! I was slightly nervous because Tommy wasn't going to be home so it was just me, Brogan, and baby Sloan. We did GREAT! I only mildly panicked for a second when trying to figure out how to entertain a 2 month old who doesn't like to be put down for long AND how to do our normal bedtime routine. I had a genius idea and it worked! I quickly downloaded a noise machine app on to my phone (have I mentioned how much I'm in LOVE with my iPhone! It's a must have!) and set it on the oscillating fan noise. I put the phone in the pack-n-play with Sloan and got Brogan to sleep no problem! She just layed there quiet as can be, just listening. Thank. The. Good. Lord.

She was a doll baby and my son was so gentle and loving with her! I was so relieved! Brogan LOVES to love on and give hugs, but he doesn't know his own strength most times and loves a little to hard. But like I said, he was gentle and very helpful. I'm hoping this is a sign that he'll be an amazing big brother when the time comes!

Here are a few pictures I snapped with my phone last night.

Brogan LOVED turning the vibrate on and off...over and over and over....

Such a sweet baby!

Brogan helping again!

There have been a lot of "life discussions" going on in the Guffey household lately and it's starting to stress me out. But I know God has a plan for us as a family, and individually, so I have to trust He'll take care of us! These are all good things we've been talking about but I tend to be antsy and want things to happen NOW. I've been praying for patience. Alot of our changes have to do with my hubbie and I know how stressed and worried he can get. He's an amazing man and I know he only wants what's best for us and our family.

Brogan has been talking up a storm in the past couple weeks! He says something new each day and most of the time we have no idea what he's talking about! I just love how independent (sometimes...haha!) he's getting! It's amazing how their little brains work, isn't it? We've been trying to decide what he should be for Halloween...we have some options (thanks to our amazing and generous friends!) and I'm hoping we can narrow it down this weekend! I'm normally very on top of decisions like this but not this time I guess.

I've been taking pictures left and right lately with the new lens Tommy got me for our anniversary! It's AMAZING! The zoom on it is ridiculous I totally feel like paparazzi when I use it! Ha!

I've had our house decorated for Fall since September and as much as I LOVE my decorations, I'm ready to take them down and get started on Christmas! I know, it's only October but I LOVE Christmas time in our house! They aren't over the top but I do tend to buy new things every year, whether we need them or not, so the house tends to fill up quick! One thing I have been thinking about is our tree. We got a new tree last year and it's a lot bigger than our previous tree. I do not have enough matching ornaments to fill the whole tree, especially after last year. A little boy who will remain nameless broke most of our 'nice' ones. CRAP. So, I'm trying to think of a color combo. I would kill to do something oober chic and girly, but I think my husband would nix that completely. We'll see what comes about....

Today is my second day off this week and I've been so grateful to spend them with Brogan! I've wanted to be a SAHM for a while now so it was nice to sorta experience that. Tonight, I also get to experience what it would be like if we had an infant and a toddler. My sister is dropping off my niece, Sloan, so she can go to the KSU football game with my dad. I'll only have her for about 4 hours but I will be all by myself so this could get interesting! Brogan LOVES baby Sloan so I know he'll be more than excited; I just hope he's gentle! Hahaha!

Today is also one of my very best friends birthday! We're celebrating Saturday by having a girls lunch at a local Italian restaurant! I'm super excited! Saturday night, we're going to celebrate some more with all our friends at Laughing Matters. It worked out that most everyone will be there either working, seeing the show, or in the show. Tommy and I always have the best time when we're there. We were lucky enough to get an overnight sitter for B so we can stay at the theatre and hang out after the show.

Now that B is down for his nap, I'm going to finish watching my shows from last night and do some crafting! I've really gotten in to doing little things here and there! It's quite the stress reliever!

Happy Thursday!

4 Years

The last 4 years have been the best (and sometimes worst, if I'm being honest) of my life! I've spent them as a Guffey. Yesterday, Tommy and I celebrated (but not really 'celebrated' cause he was gone all day/night) our 4 year wedding anniversary. I've been with Tommy for over 10 years but September 30, 2006 we officially became ONE. I love him more today than I ever have! He's given me so much from a beautiful, unique house to a sweet little boy who loves us more than he even knows! Every day is different, harder, more fun, amazing, stressful, full of love, and the list goes on. We don't have a perfect marriage by any means, but it's perfect to US. Tommy has a way of getting to me even after the biggest argument or annoyance. I still think he's the most handsome man on the face of this Earth and I thank God for giving him to me. Sometimes I even wonder why someone like him is with someone like me. How did I get so lucky???

I'm excited to see what our future holds. I know some things are probably going to be hard and stressful over the next few years with Tommy finishing school, new house (eventually), another baby (sooner than later, in my mind anyway...hehe), but as long as I have my wonderful husband and our Bean, I'm golden!

I'm also excited to officially celebrate tomorrow evening...haha! I think we're just going to do dinner and a possible movie....either in or out. Depends on our 'babysitter' sitch :) And that is just fine with me! Cute or comfy, as long as I'm with my love I'll be just fine!

Our wedding day: September 30, 2006
