Nice Neighbors

We have been really blessed to have nice neighbors. We have one lady a couple houses down that is constantly serving us...watching the kids, taking the boys to pre-school for me, stopping and getting milk for me...just whatever I need, she is constantly helping me. Our neighbors across the street have given us things for our kids that their grandkids have outgrown. And most recently, our next door neighbors gave our kids a special gift. Mr. Jones called us and asked us if he could give us a riding Jeep that his grandkids have outgrown. These retail in the store for a couple hundred dollars! He said he'd like to give it to the boys "from Santa". So we wrapped it up and after the boys opened all their normal gifts we told them they had one more to open in the family room. They opened the Jeep and were jumping up and down with excitement. They have played with it so much just pretending to drive it...and can't wait til it warms up so they can really drive it outside:) It just overwhelms and amazed me sometimes at the kindness and generosity of others. This same neighbor came and snowblowed our whole driveway two days ago just to be nice....and he said he has two more riding cars to give us in about a year when his seven year old grandson outgrows them. We are so grateful to live near such wonderful and kind people who have given us so much:)
