You know you grew up in a small town when a huge event in the town is the annual corn roast parade which consists of local businesses, political groups, and organizations create little floats for their group.
In the past the parade used to have a lot of tractors in it so we took Cohen thinking he'd be able to see the tractors but there was actually just one in the whole parade this year!
boy scouts hanging by some climbing ropes
the local rotary club plugging their annual duck race
everyone tosses out candy which Cohen still doesn't have much of a concept of but we snagged a popcicle for him and he loved it
after a while he got a little more brave and started waving
then we snagged another one
Cohen just kept yelling socks...the horses are wearing socks
fire truck...always a hit!
back at home daddy doctored up the cake that grandma and auntie lin made...
then it was time for happy birthday cake...ready...
then he dives right in
present time is so silly
another new backpack!! this one has cat in the hat on it and was cousin Landon's when he was little
then we were off to take the family Christmas picture...complete with Cat...
AND a tractor! Russell family Christmas...
