November = Birthdays

The vast majority of our family birthdays fall in November:
Nov 11 Mendis
Nov 12 Terri and Cymoni
Nov 14 Cooper
Nov 16 Christina and Ashley
Nov 20 Stacey (Beth & Rob's anniversary)
Nov 26 Rees
See I wasn't kidding. The festivities all start with Mendis. He has it down to a science now. We go to his parade every year. People wave to him and yell happy birthday during it so it must be his right. Then we head home and he does hours of work outside (his idea of a good time). There is usually a 4 wheeler ride or truck trip in the afternoon weather permitting. Around 6 pm the Cooper clan comes over for his annual taco dinner complete with no cooked cookies for his cake. Then after everyone leaves we pull out a John Wayne movie. Rarely does it change because that's the way he wants it. This year he worked through an afternoon trip but the rest of the day was just the same as usual.
Here we are enjoying Mendis' parade!
My favorite entry

The parade is always exciting. This year we only ate a couple of tootsie rolls which was a bummer though.
Here is Cymoni opening her perfume from us.
Mendis opening his presents.
Cooper opening his presents. I have to do a separate post for Cooper's Bday because I have lots of pics to share.What a fun month we have celebrating and celebrating!
