This year the roommies (minus Amy who left early for the holidays...miss you!) and I decided it would be very neighborly of us to bring cookies to all 24 of our Coastline neighbors. It was actually really fun meeting all the "old people" in the neighborhood and singing at the top of our lungs "We Wish You A Merry Christmas!"
A few of the "old people" even invited us in to chat and shoot the breeze. One lady sat us down in her living room and proceeded to tell us about her days as a travel agent and the time she just so happened to be staying at the same hotel as Grace Kelly's 21st birthday party in Monaco. How amazing is that! Another neighbor invited us in to show us all of his woodworking projects. We learned all about the qualities and characteristics of alder, oak, maple, and more. Quite interesting! And yet another neighbor stood on the front step for 20 minutes and told us that out of her 5 daughter-in-laws, the Mormon one was her favorite because she gave her 9 beautiful grandchildren. Haha! I love that everyone on our street knows we're the Mormons. Merry Christmas Coastline Lane! And a Happy New Year too!
