Granny HEARTS Saturday Night Fever!

those little old ladies danced at the disco for
so long that they had to use these canes to help them hobble home.

. . . my true love gave to me
nine ladies dancing,
eight maids a-milking
seven swans a-swimming
six geese a-layin'
five goooooooooolden rings!
four calling birds,
three french hens,
two turtle doves,
and a partridge in a pear tree!

People are so kind. Sooooo kind. We had another "WOW!" experience tonight at one of our deliveries. Actually, we didn't even notice anything out of the ordinary until we did our usual return-to-the-scene-of-the-crime foolhardiness just to make sure our little offerings had been picked up by our intended recipients and not by the neighborhood dog who might just happen by and decides he needs a little schnack.

As we were cruising by the house ever so slowly, trying to make our car squish down as flat as possible in a pitiful attempt to be inconspicuous, Sean noticed a little bistro table set out on the front porch of the home. We commented that the table wasn't there on our other nightly forays, so Christian was dispatched to go back to check it out. Yup. Wow is right! Sweetness came our way again. This is what we found:
Homemade flan!

The lovely note reads:

To our 12 days of Christmas angels:
We are honored and grateful for your kindness and love for our family. Your amazing thoughtfulness will never, ever be forgotten.

______ & ______ are sooooo . . . excited . . . to read the cards and the treats. They anxiously wait every night for the delivery of the goodies & try to guess ahead of time, what the clever interpretation will be.

Please enjoy the flan as a simple & humble thank you for all of your wonderful efforts.

Love _______

P.S. Boy you run fast! :)

Jeepers. Who knew? The truth of the matter is that WE are the ones who are reaping tons and tons of joy and happiness and excitement from all of this hullabaloo. Awesome how that whole "performing-service-for-others-thing" tends bless us more than the servees. Crazy how it does that. Every single time.

And, yes. We are fast!

I love that they made you Christmas tree shaped flan! That makes me tear up a little bit. How thoughtful and kind! You really have amazing friends and neighbors.

Slow down long enough to at least enjoy the flan!
