Welcome to the Neighborhood

WELCOME to the Neighborhood!  

What a blessing it was for one of our new neighbors to stop by with a little welcome basket.  I have moved a few times now and it seems the "friendly neighbor welcome" is something from the past or only seen in movies.  It was a much needed break to talk for a few minutes and eat some cake (not shown in picture)  they also brought.

Have you ever gotten a welcome from a new neighbor when you move?  
Have you ever given a gift to a new neighbor?  

I personally cant recall a time that I have gone to a new neighbor to introduce myself but I do remember inviting over a new neighbor for dinner and to this day we are great friends!  I really want to work on making sure to take a few minutes to be kind, introduce myself and my family, and bless them with a meal or plant or anything really.  

  We actually had just met them a few weeks ago as they had just started coming to our church and then what do you know we move very close to them.  HOW COOL!  :)  Always nice to know a new neighbor. 

I am very excited to meet more of my new neighbors.  :)  I have seen several people walking by with their dogs, so many dogs in this neighborhood.  It will be an exciting day when we get to add a dog into the mix.  :) :) 

Another neat thing to note about our neighborhood is they have block meetings at the local school every month.  There was a flyer at our door inviting us to the next meeting on Monday.  The flyer mentioned they have the following people give reports:  Principle, Police Officer, President of the block group, and a random neighbor.  It said they will discuss yard clean up, new protocols, safety, and a few other things.  I have never seen a group like this in the past so I am very curious to see how it is run and what exactly is discussed.  

Has anyone ever been to a community/block group like the one mentioned above?  

We are also so thankful for our wonderful friends who blessed us this weekend.  We had 5 friends help us load/unload the Uhaul, 2 friends help us scrub the apartment clean (it looked brand new), and 4 friends babysit the kids for us.   I must fill out some thank you cards and get some chocolate or something.  :) 

Well, that is all for now, we still have a lot more unpacking to do.  :)  

Hope your weekend was wonderful!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
