Dear [Recipients Name],

We were so glad when we heard that a family has bought the house next door with twin boys, and now we're even more excited that you have finally moved in! Our son, who is about the same age as your nine-year-old twins, have been wanting to have kids their age to hang out with in this neighborhood. We are looking forward to meeting all of you soon.

We hope you can come for dinner this Saturday so we can learn more about each other's families. You can also drop by our house anytime if you need a chat.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
