My favorite Allie moment of the day: We were looking at the chickens and I said, "Say, 'Hi, chickens!'" and she quickly and clearly yelled, "Hi, chickens!" I almost fell over!
Ryan decided to play in one of the pumpkin crates.
My favorite Ryan moment: When we loaded up to leave, there was a cat in our garage. It immediately ran away, and Ryan was torn between chasing the cat and listening to us tell him not to leave the garage. Seeing his struggle I said, "Are you looking for the cat?" he nodded his head yes (lately, he's only shaken it no for EVERYTHING, so this was big!). I asked, "Do you see it?" he shook his head no (with a very sad expression). Knowing this cat frequents our garage I told him, "I'm pretty sure she'll be back." He turned to me and held up his hands and shrugged his shoulders (which is usually what he does to say "where is it?" or "I don't know."). We had a conversation!
We have a big week ahead. Papa & Gigi are coming to visit. A new baby cousin should be arriving any minute! We're meeting Uncle Nic's girlfriend's parents...so much going on! I'm sure there will be many pictures and posts for the upcoming week!
