Amanda turned 2 this Saturday the 17th. It was sort of a non-birthday birthday. We're having her party at the end of February when Mike's family is coming to visit. I sang "Happy Birthday" to her when she woke up, and several family members called to wish her a happy birthday, but other than that it was a normal Saturday. I don't think she knew the difference :)
Mike & I are looking into getting the kitchen remodeled. I think we found a custom cabinet guy, but after going to a local kitchen store, we're not sure we can knock down the wall between the kitchen and the dining room now. We have a finished attic above and the kitchen has a bump-out where the window is that starts at that wall, that both could be supported by beams inside that wall. Since it'll take 5-6 weeks to get cabinets, we don't want to put big holes in that wall now and live with it for 2 months while we wait for cabinets. And our house is so old, I don't think we can get the original plans anymore... so we're sort of at a standstill on where to go next in the process.
