Peanut turns 5!!!!

Marien, aka Peanut, turned five at the end of this month.  It is hard to believe!  She is so funny and started her countdown about two weeks before the big day.  She also had her outfit planned out several days in advance.  Now that she is five she was able to wear the "I am five and I am a big kid now!" shirt.

Marien is about as sweet as they come except if you don't feed her.  This kid is so affected by blood sugar levels.  If we don't feed her within 15 mins of her getting up she melts.  Then it is a fight to get food in her.  She is loving and things roll right off her back.  She does not hold a grudge, I definitely could take a lesson from her.  Marien is shy to begin with but once she is comfortable that girl can talk.  She LOVES music and her favorite thing to do is retreat to her room and listen to her cd's.  Marien has always been petite, weighing in at only 6 lbs at birth.  She may be tiny but she can hold her own and will give her older brother a run for his money.

This was a big birthday this year, as the kids got a joint party (more to come) and pretty much the whole month of September they were receiving gifts.  She was at school on her actual birthday so she got to be not only "the kid of the day" but was also the birthday kid.  Which meant holding the flag, using the pointer, being line leader and getting two stickers plus blowing out the candles while her class sang happy birthday.  Needless to say she felt pretty special.
Happy Birthday Marien...we love you!
