36....and still counting

so, this year would not be complete without a mention of this wonderful neighborhood we call home. this year, we delivered 36 Christmas gifts to our neighbors/friends, oh yeah and all within a less than 2 mile radius, and we even need to go back and do the few families we accidentaly forgot! and that doesn't count the various other friends who live outside the walls of Spectrum Estates. wow! we count ourselves beyond blessed to live in this place, at this time. now, just so you understand, we don't casually call each of our neighbors "friend", no each of these 36+ families are people we admire, trust, would do anything for, can count on, and generally love. who can say that about an entire neighborhood of people?

it has been said, "No man is a failure who has friends," and i feel this especially in my life.

I love the new colors and prints on your blog design...

very pretty!

You are so lucky to have so many great people within your community. I don't even see my neighbors...

Looks like fun preparing your gifts! Great idea!
