Neighbors Throw A "Welcome Home Tigist" BBQ

We have the best neighbors ...

My friend and neighbor organized a cul-de-sac Welcome Home for sweet Tigist. There are about 11 kids in the cul-de-sac behind us and they are always including us in their get togethers. They have been the "key" to us feeling so welcomed here since the 2 years we have moved from California. We are so fortunate ...



Tigist is sitting on Debra's lap, who organized this whole thing. I love this picture. Tigist will randomly say Debra's daughter's name about once a day since she met her (Kayla, Kayla!!!)


We're sitting in front of her house eating burgers and hotdogs ... the kids played until 9pm. Tigist just roams around like she's been here forever.



Our neighbor Terry with Tigist. Terry has 2 huge "woo-woos" (dogs) that Tigist is a bit afraid of. Debra has 3 small ones that Tigist can handle.



Here she is on Grace's lap. Grace lives behind me and is just the nicest, most thoughtful neighbor. She has been just incredible since we moved in. She's my go-to-girl when I need information about the city or the happennings.

wow, what an amazing neighborhood. You are blessed! We've been in our house for over 3 years and we don't even know our neighbors names. Looks like you guys had a fun time.

Your cul-de-sac parties look just like our cul-de-sac parties! So fun, huh? Can't wait to see you all Sunday. Will the boys come, too?

LOry,
David and Brandon may show up as they will be coming home at that hour from a weekend retreat. But Tigist, Evan and I will be there right after church. We'll have fun as usual!

WOW how nice! It must be great to have such close neighbors. When we lived in Fort Collins we were very close with all our neighbors, it must be a Colorado thing!
I loved meet your wonderful family!

Leah,
It was so wonderful to meet you and Gabre too. What a treat after all of these months of paperwork, phone calls, stressful situations ... and now we meet our daughters in person, what a joy! Thank you for taking the time to see us.
Blessed to know you... Lisa and family.
p.s. tell me if you get this. I know some people don't check the box to know about replies, so I don't even know if people read these responses.
