Off to a Good Start


I am really starting to enjoy our neighborhood already! We moved from a neighborhood of about 400 homes to one that has approximately 20. There are still empty lots but it will never bee too big. Anyway, I think I posted last week that a friend of ours joked that the neighborhood is all girls and dogs (the dogs freak my cat out a little bit) LOL. If you have been following my blog you know that I had been praying for God to send us friends for the girls. He has gone over and above! Saturday was wonderful!!! The girls spent the whole day running around with about 9 little girls. :) That night we had two neighbor families over for burgers and all 7 little girls ran around all night with not a single disagreement or hurt feeling (that is amazing if you know little girls) :) Their parents are great and each of these little girls are so sweet and polite. Definitely a gift from God.

Speaking of friends, I made a bunch of these little gift bags as an assignment for Emma's Paperie and then gave them to my sweet friend at home before we moved. (I miss you all!!!) I have to tell you, these Linder chocolates I put in the bags were heavenly!!! I may have tested 1, or 2, or 25. LOL I wish they sold this flavor at other times other than spring. I may have to do some research.
I hope your week is unbelievable! I am so thankful for all of you. Thank you for stopping by!

Lisa, that's great! I wish my husband was social, because I love get togethers with neigjhbors! I feel left out of lots of neighborhood activities when families are involved. I always go when it's just the women. But we moved, and not many houses here. I would love a 400 house neighborhood!
