Seth went to the door last night around 9:00 to hear muffled chattering and giggling on our front steps. When he opened the door he was greeted by a group of our sweet neighbors who burst into a rendition of "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer". I missed the carol, by the time I got the door, the song had dissolved into the chattering and giggling again.
They handed me a box of homemade cookies (which I promptly ate four of, then felt sick and had to go to bed), took a look at our remodeled floors and that was about it. But I have to say, it really made my night. After being shut inside for a week with sick kids during the Holiday season, there is nothing better than having people remember you. So, if you get into the spirit of Christmas, go lavish some cheer on your neighbors, 'cause from their point of view, it feels great!
