This is a collection of cookies

hand-delivered to us

throughout out the week

by our neighbors.

We moved into this neighborhood

last year and were surprised

last Christmas when neighbors

started appearing at our door

with plates and baskets full

of holiday goodies and well-wishes.

Yesterday, we joined the fun

by taking cookies and cards

door to door.

This platter holds just some

of the treats we’ve received this year!

I think it’s a wonderful way

to build community

and celebrate the season

with our neighbors.
