Like a Good Neighbor…

But it isn’t State Farm at the door. It’s the unofficial welcoming committee {aka The Langham Family}.

It seems that our neighborhood has been welcoming in families around every corner lately. As of now, there are three {possibly four} houses for sale in our little area, which I claim to be Briarcliff Road, Douglas Lane, and Terry Drive. I love that new families are moving in with little children running around. That means there are that many more children for Landry to grow up playing with. We have been so blessed that all of the families moving in are wonderful people with the same values we uphold and want our children to grow up around and be influenced by.

Most recently, a sweet family bought the house that I cheated on my house with that one time. They have two boys, and I couldn’t wait to get over there to introduce ourselves and welcome them to the neighborhood.

It made us feel great when our neighbors across the street brought us brownies when we first moved in. Since then, we have developed a terrific relationship with them and are so grateful for their kindness.

In an effort to extend the graciousness that was once extended to us, I created this little welcoming gift and brought it over to them yesterday. It turned out so cute that I couldn’t wait to share it!


In the cute lemonade dispenser, I included some lemonade mix along with a few lemons and some flour sack dishtowels. It’s not much, but it’s enough to make a person feel welcome.

Hanging from the dispenser handle, I added a printable gift tag from ThirtyHandmadeDays.


On the back of the tag, I added our names {including Landry’s} as well as our phone numbers in case they ever need to contact us for anything.

Let’s hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it for them! Three cheers to being the welcome wagon!
