I've got new neighbors.

I was very sad to see our next door neighbors move away.  I'm happy they are building a new home in a great little town down the road a bit but sad they couldn't stay next door to me.  They briefly tried to sell their home but the price they could get right now is just too low for a family that was only in the home for 5 years.  Rather than barely breaking even, they decided to rent and hopefully wait out the market.  It can be scary picking renters but I think a surgeon, his stay at home wife and 3 darling girls from 3 to 7 is a pretty safe bet!

We met them yesterday.  They came over and introduced themselves!  That's supposed to be my job!  THEY're the newbies.  I guess it gave me extra incentive to write a thankyou (they brought cookies) and give them some treats, too.

Here it is.  It's filled with Thumbprint Cookies with different jams in the thumbprint and a matching card.  I gave it to the Surgeon... Wife was bathing the kiddos and I didn't want to intrude.  Just gave it to him and told him to enjoy.  They are sooooo nice and we are so very lucky.  I've had awful neighbors before.  It's enough to make you move and we did.  We've been very happy ever since... and we still are.
