Fun with Fall

As I write, there are 28mph winds outside blowing our tidy little piles of leaves all over the yard.  Which is a big boo.  But it's also 67 degrees outside, which I suppose makes up for it, right?

We're enjoying fall here in Chicagoland, with the alternating freezing and warm weather.  We're taking lots of walks, enjoying the outdoor playgrounds while we can, and keeping all of our fingers crossed for Byron's third round interviews at ACCO on Tuesday.  :)  If that works out, we'll be staying here in Chicagoland, which would be really exciting.

A few entertaining kiddo tidbits:  in the last two days, Leo has started saying "yes" instead of "yeah."  Not sure where that came from, but it seems to be a very conscious thing.  He'll say "yeah," then stop himself and say "yes" instead.  Makes him sound like such a big boy!  The train obsession continues, so I'm sure we'll have a christmas of trains trains trains....

And Mikaela is babbling nonstop, and scootching all over the floor.  It's not quite crawling, but it's definitely intentional movement. 

Hoping we have good job news to share soon.  In the meantime, enjoy more fall pictures in the Fall 2011 album on Flickr.
