Its that time again!

ICU smile, and a hug from Alex!!!!

I will be going to visit the NICU that was Alex's first home this December to hand out ornaments to the families who wont be at home this Christmas. The hospital is a very lonely place, nights are so quiet and lonely, but even worse than nights are holidays. Alex and I spent our first Thanksgiving in the hospital together, and it was one of my loneliest times. I have such a love for families with sick children, especially those in the NICU, and would love for you to all come with me! Since most of you wont be able to make the trip, you can still help!!!! Go to the store pick out a ornament that makes you smile, or two or three, and send it my way. I will deliver them on a Saturday in December, and your thoughtfulness will warm somebodies heart!

Are you in????

Email me for details on how to get me the ornaments.

hmm!! do they have to be bought? there are alot of craft playdates in our area where the kids make ornaments, would you accept those or no?

I'm totally in!!! I am glad you are doing this!! This is such an easy little thing to do, but I know it makes a huge difference to all those parents going through a tough time!! I can't imagine the feeling, but love to help in little ways!!

I'm excited!! I'm in Rockford for work and I'm going to this cool place for some shopping while I'm here. I learned this morning they have lots of neat Christmas gifts, ornaments, and stuff. I'll see what I can pick up for you!
