Tis the season to be nice

Today while I was out I noticed people being more nice than usual. For example I was at Costco buying a new sofa table since the box is huge and I have 2 babies and a cart full of stuff I asked the manager if he would have someone get the table for me and take it to my car. He did no problem but the guy not only brought it to my car he folded down my seat, loaded the table, all my groceries and asked me if I needed any help with the babies. Then I headed over to Michael's everyone there is always so sweet of course having the babies helps when the shopper's are mostly women. Anyway while I was loading the babies into the car with 3 of my doors and the back open to my car I noticed a lady heading for the car next to me. I said oh hold on give me a sec. She said no problem take your time the weather is nice I don't mind. Then she asked me how I was going to get the stroller in the car. I explained it folded nice and neat and has a permanent spot in the back. She even asked if she could watch, I think she was truly amazed. After I picked Ashley up we pulled over on the side of the road to take this picture. I love how still the water is and how the trees reflect into the water.
It makes my day when people, total strangers, are so nice. Maybe it's the season, maybe it's a sign of the times. Whatever it is I like it.

Those are great moments!! I love it when people are friendly... it's always better than complainers!

The pictures are amazing - I feel so blessed to get to see another part of the world through your blog. :-)

What pretty pictures! I've noticed that people go out of their way to be nice to Mamas with small babies, especially when you have two little ones. ;>) I think twins get twice the attention of a singleton. Eat it up sister, you deserve it. ;>) Not everyone is destined to raise twins because it takes a special kind of Mama to handle it. I enjoy the attention my babies attract when I take them out. It's our little pat on the back after all the hard work we invest in taking care of them 24/7. Not to suggest that we wouldn't do it anyway; you know what I mean.

I've noticed that people are a lot nicer lately, too! I don't know what is causing it (maybe it's my new happy outlook on life now that the twins are here), but I like it!
