  5. My dad and aunt have the same birthday in November, and my husband's birthday is next Monday. It's a busy month for us!

  6. Love the November trivia you provided...and a very HAPPY, but belated BIRTHDAY to you!!! (Aren't you glad you weren't a Halloweenie baby?!!! My elementary-school friend was and she rarely had a party ON her birthday (well, she did as we got older) b/c most little ones are celebrating trick-or-treating with their own families)!

    And, I'm wishing you a Happy American Education week a bit early so as I don't forget!

    I'm off to check out your Halloween costumes! Hope you had a great day at work.
