Freebies

After we closed on the house and made the first visit as the owners, I was so happy to find all the neat things the previous owners left for us.

Besides some roses, these festive outdoor lights and a little wooden wishing well
more of the lights and some flower pots

a pretty stepping stone

a basket ball goal (well, I guess I wasn't surprised they left that). My dad pointed it out to Kilian, who shrugged and asked if he could go look for ants in the yard.

and finally, they left a really nice note welcoming us and telling us they hope that we enjoy the house as much as they did. I wish I would have thought of that. I could have made several families feel good, since we've moved out of so many houses lately.

What a neat idea! I hope I remember to leave a note when we move. The world needs more simple little joys like that.

I was catching up on my cousin's blog, and I realized it has been forever since I've looked at yours. Congratulations on your new house! It's beautiful! I loved looking at all your kids pictures. Your kids are sooo cute! Glad things are going great!
