Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas!

I have a ton of photos to share, but it may take me a day or two to get them organized and on the computer. But for now, I wanted to share the details of our delivery. Instead of the individual gifts given at Thanksgiving time, we delivered 9 large bags of general donations to give to the nursing staff. That way, the gifts can be distributed as needed to the families that come through, whether now or later on in the year.

Today we delivered:
3 large Lamaze developmental toys
26 hand-knit hats
33 burp cloths
10 wash cloths
9 tag blankets
2 large quilts
5 handmade blankets
19 complete preemie outfits
60 receiving blankets

Isn't that fantastic?!?! I'll update as soon as I can with photos, a sort of year-end wrap up of donations, and also some info about what we're doing next year. :D Hooray!

Thanksgiving Delivery 2009

Thanksgiving delivery! I was having a problem finding the right cord to get my photos, so sorry for the delay in the post. :) If you have become a "fan" of preemie presents on Facebook (just search for preemie presents!) then you'll see a few extra photos. :)

Delivery was perfect, there were a few parents in the unit tending to their super tiny babies and we even got to meet one of the teeny little girls in there. The boys were in awe! But realistically, they were much happier that the nurses were sharing their new bag of Oreos with them. ;) It was really nice that Philip got to give a bag out to some parents himself, he felt very proud about himself afterwards. :)

The bag on the left was Philip's idea, it is filled with nothing but a bunch of drawings for the nurses. :)

And now we're on to Christmas!! I still need some knit hats, and donations (or cash to buy) Bath & Body Works hand sanitizers, socks, candy, and glass tea light holders. So please contact me if you want to get in on the game before Christmas shows up!!
