Neighborly Surprise

We have these neighbors (no not the idiot firebugs lol) and they are really nice people. The husband works for the same company as Larry but works with the suits because he is an engineer of some sort.
We know them but havent really gotten together or spent much time with them. Ya know the neighborly exchange of xmas cookies and b-day party invite.
Anyway after the boys were born and they found out about them they had come down and gave them homecoming gifts, they also got them some really nice b-day gifts. Remember these are people we dont hang out with on a regular basis.
Anyway Tammy came over this past weekend asking if Chantelle could come and hang out with her niece while she was visiting from California.
I figured cool, something for Bug to do and someone new to meet. The girls hit it off really good. They watched movies, rode the dune buggy, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows in the evening etc etc.....

Well Sunday Tammy invited Bug to go shopping with them. I felt bad because I didnt have any money to give her to spend but Bug said it was ok.
She came home with bags of stuff!!!! Some of it was for Jess's babies too.
Between the 2 girls she spent almost $400.00. I couldnt believe it!!

Telle got a back pack, 3 pairs of shoes (totalling about $80), 2 outfits, socks, bath and body stuff, perfume and jewlery

Jess got 3(6) outfits, 2 blankets, 2 towels and some receiving blankets. Telle said she wanted to buy more!!

Its a shock to have someone do something like that for my girls, it was just for the fun of it to see someone else happy. She told Larry she enjoyed doing it.
We appreciate so much what she has done and the girls are going to find something nice to do for her in return as a thank you.
