The Best Neighbors!

When we moved into this house 3 years ago, our neighbors made us feel really welcomed. They came over and introduced themselves, and made us feel like if we needed help with anything, all we had to do is ask.  It was great to know that the block that I live on has such community.  So my first Christmas at this house, I gave each of my friendly neighbors a box of chocolates as a thank you for welcoming us to the neighborhood.  The tradition has stuck and now every year, at Christmas time, I've been continuing to give them chocolate.  The neighbors have reciprocated with giving us goodies back.  This morning, I received home baked Italian cookies.  Yum.  And a cake from a local bakery.
I opened the bakery box and inside I saw the most amazing sight!  An Eclair cake!  Oh my wow!  I've never heard of an Eclair cake before.  Doesn't this look just incredible!  I can't wait to eat this after our Christmas dinner!  I'm already drooling!  I definitely have the best neighbors!  Merry Christmas everyone!!


  1. Oh my!

    Give us about 3 1/2 hours and we'll be there!

    Please be sure to save a piece or two or three!

    Happy HOWLiday!

  2. Wow. I've never heard on an eclair cake. That is amazing. I have very sweet neighbors too. Every year they have a neighborhood party. We give them an ornament and they give us a tin of Chex party mix. It's fun. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

  3. We used to exchange treats with the neighbors, but I haven't been baking for the past few years, because I'm trying to keep the extra weight off.

    Happy New Year!
