I am soooooo trying NOT to be excited

So, we put an offer down on a house in Richmond. AHHHHHH! It's the first house Steve and I both like, so hey! We're supposed to hear back on our offer today, so . . . I'm at the stage of I really like the house, but I'm trying not to be excited so I won't be too disappointed if we either have to negotiate a while or else not get it at all. If our offer is accepted, though, you know I'll have fun rambling all about it later, lol! The older kids would all still go to the same schools, though. (Good and bad there.) Only the younger would change, and I think if things go as hoped, I'll just leave them where they are and drive them to school for the last month. A pain, but probably better than moving them for only a month of school when it's only a five-minute drive from where we live now.

So anyway, wish us luck!

Dolphin Mania (low key)

Okay, so here we are a month later, I still had to post the birthday pics. =) And yes, I did the cake . . . pictures. Steve is our cake decorator in the family, and I say, "Yay!!" Anyone who has seen my version of cakes knows exactly how smart a choice it is for Steve to do the work here and I merely record events. He even did little 3-D effects with the dolphins' fins and made the icing resemble waves. So we now have officially FOUR in mutual. It gets quiet here on Tuesday nights, lol!
