The anticipation is building!!!!! The ornaments are counted, the tags have been placed on the ornaments with care.....I leave at 8:00 tomorrow morning, my dad is driving me because the snow will be falling. We should arrive to the NICU doors around 10.
My awesome friend Kari and I worked together to make the tags, tie them on, and triple count them to make sure we had enough. While I had about 30 ornaments as a back up just in case I didnt have enough donated, I get to save them for next year!!!! I had 64 ornaments donated!!!! This doesnt include the 60 angesl my mother inlaw sewed together.....124 ornaments!! Can you believe it!!!????!! Yes, you can because you donated! Thank you, thank you, thank you! So many of you, in fact most of you I dont know, I have never met, and you still took the time to pick out, pay for, package up, and send to me for my first annual Al-x-mas cheer, ICU smile, hanging hope, hugs from Alex ornament delivery to the Cardinal Glennon NICU.
There are 60 beds in the NICU, but I will take a few extra just in case.
My ornaments from trees of the past, and any left over from this year will be ready and waiting for Chirstmas 2009's delivery.
My anticipation is building, and I cant wait to love on some mommas. You made this first "Hugs From Alex" trip possible! Thank you so much.......more to come. (Dont forget to vote on a name for the annual NICU trip)
