Thanks from Thing 1 & Thing 2

Our neighbors, Mrs. Laura and Mr. Steve, lavish affection---and gifts---upon Sarah and Darren. Yesterday, when opening the front door to run errands, on the doorstep were huge Easter bags, complete with chocolate bunnies and precious summer togs for our two.

Before heading out for afternoon fun today, I tasked the twins to compose their own thanks without dictation or wording suggestions (and to share the space afforded them) in the card below.





Sarah's determination to spell her gratitude without asking for assistance, plus Darren's "Ms. Lora + Mr. Steve = Happy Darren" have thoroughly warmed my heart cockles this Saturday.

Think the good Dr. Seuss (and Hallmark) would be pretty pleased as well.

Too funny! I just put up a "thanks" post as well...

Your kids are just awesome.

Can't wait until my two can take advantage of the written version more. :)

So cute! I had a neighbor like that, Mr. Tony and Ms. Angie. They always brought me Barbie Dolls. I never expected it, but they always did it. It was great.
