So after our scary fire situation all I could think of was "How can I thank the fire dept?"
Soooo I spent the day baking.... And then I went to the fire dept with all my baked goodies to say thank you. One of the fire man that was in my house mentioned that he was on shift for another 24 hours so that got me to thinking about baking, so I made cookies, and cupcakes and a cheese dip and what goes best with cookies and cupcakes?
So when I was all done I drove over to the fire dept (its 2 blocks away) with goodies in tow and it turns out they were switching shifts for the night so there were 6 firemen outside so I pulled up and one of the guys that was in our house was going home and came over to meet me.
I told them thanks.
And they were all modest and said thank you but I did not have to do this...
And I told them.
No I did.
I also have batteries packs that I am leaving on my neighbors doors with notes along the lines of "We had a fire and the fire alarm saved us please check your batteries"
