For my record

Red will be 4 next month he still has 29 days to be 3. Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed his pants are starting to get short on him, high water short. These pants are a size 4T this kid is a beast! I have a feeling that Monkey and Red will be wearing the same size clothing in the next few years unless Monkey does some major growing. I just can't believe how fast he and the other kids are growing. He is getting so excited about his party and has started to plan who he wants to invite and things like that. I really love this kid. His facial expressions crack me up all the time!

Today we took our first family bike ride to the library. Red rode his "new" two wheel bike with training wheels. Watching him ride I have a feeling that he will be riding his bike next summer without the training wheels. Which will actually be prefect because then we won't have to put the training wheels back on Monkey's bike so Peanut can have the girl one. Monkey is going to be getting a bigger one next summer as I think this will be the last summer for his current one...man these kids grow too fast.

Yesterday we went out to lunch with my dad who always pays the kids to scratch his head. They get a dollar a minute. He is helping them save for Disney. HA! Well the two older kids each made 8 dollars at lunch. When we got home I had them play outside while I put the two little ones down and then I joined them 5 minutes later. They had picked some wild flowers and set up the card table and started making a sign to sell their flowers. I thought it was too funny. They were selling weeds flowers for 25 cents a piece. The funniest thing is that they made 4.50 in the hour they sat out there. They got a few neighbors to buy them, a couple taking a walk, and some teenagers that drove by stopped to buy some. They are my little financial wizards :)

They do grow too fast. My Caden is so big or should I say tall that I had to go out and by him some size 7 pants! (He just turned 5 in September!!!) I about cried with that purchase. The faster I see these kids grow up the more I realize that I need to really treasure each little moment with them. Before we know it they will be off to college, and won't need us as much anymore. :(

Too funny about the "plant" selling! My kiddos latest money maker for neighbors and passers by, is...they "sell" beaded keychains on the sidewalk for a dollar each! They set up a stand, it's amazing how successful they are! I guess people like kids! The kids sure have fun thinking of ways to make $! Maybe our kids can start their own business together!
