We have new neighbors across the street!
AND they have little kids to play with! Yeah!
To welcome them to the neighborhood, we took over a coffee cake (thank you, Trader Joe's box mix).
Who doesn't like homemade goodies??
Confession: this is the SECOND coffee cake I made for the neighbors since we ate the first one...it wasn't warm by the time I was going to walk it over and my kids were dying to eat it, so I gave in.
And it was delicious.
The best part about taking a little something to new neighbors is that you can include a card with names and important info on it. Now they don't have to guess names and they can call if they need anything.
And, of course, what is a gift without a handmade touch?
Grabbed one of my blank flour sack towels (that I keep on hand for just such gifts) and doodled a little housewarming message with a Sharpie Rub a Dub marker.
LOVE my fabric Sharpie pen!
Have you ever used one of these? They're pretty awesome.
And we tied it all up with a ribbon and walked across the street.
It turns out they are a super nice family and the kids all played together really well.
So it was a treat for all of us.
