Yesterday was a big day. Debbie came by, and it was so great to see her and little Maddie (who was celebrating her 6 month birthday!). Debbie and I met in Geneva, I'd just entered my 3rd trimester, she was just 3 months behind. We were part of the lunch group that got together once a week and so saw each other that way mostly. Then she was put on bed rest and one afternoon I stopped by to see how she was doing and before I knew it hours had passed during which conversation had flowed seemingly effortlessly. She and her new little family moved back here a few months before we did, and while I know she misses Europe terribly, I selfishly am very glad to have her around.

Zach came home a bit early yesterday afternoon so we could partake in a bit of pumpkin patch fun. Julia had invited us along to a get-together with some of the couples (now families) she and Cyrus had met in their birthing class. We all met up at a local pumpkin patch to take pictures of our kiddoes in their Halloween costumes. Zach and I had not gotten it together to take family photos at a pumpkin patch yet, so we jumped at this chance. The results, which you can see in full here, are quite adorable. We had a lot of fun, and lucked out with the weather seeing as today it's been cold and rainy and just plain nasty.
Donovan says "I'm outta here."
He refused to look at the camera or smile. The entire time.
Sophia seems unimpressed by it all.
