OMG!!! Yesterday was a blast! I was not expecting the number of Beenies and Blankets that we had. We had 522 beenies and 70 blankets!

I know that Janet and Janice have both said thanks to everyone but I want to say it also, Thank You! Some of them were so cute, I wanted to try and contact some of you guys to get you to make me one just like it!

The hospital let US hand the beenies and the blankets out to the kids. It was so much fun, we got to talk to the kids and parents.

One Mom even asked Janet if she could take a pic of her daughter receiving the blanket.

We all were holding back the tears when we talked to one patient who said that she had been comeing to the hospital for 12 years, just graduated from High School, and was currently attending nursing school so that SHE could work at the Childrens Hospital. I'm fighting back the tears just thinking about it! Oh I hope that everyone gets a chance to go to the hospitals and meet the kids and families, it touched me in away that words cannot describe, I'm still on cloud 9. Well I have laundry to do from the trip, thank you again to everyone who sent beenies and blankets. We definately covered those wonderful kids with love!
