Just learned that there are 267 stockings for the babies! That is just amazing considering that there are only about 100 members in our group. Everything gets shipped to our group leader Danette and she and her husband Richard get all of the donations sorted and packed into the stockings. Then they get shipped out to all of the different hospitals we help nationwide. It has to be a lot of fun seeing all the goodies coming in for Danette, but absolutely overwhelming to get it all organized and together.
Danette, there is surely a special place for you in Heaven and you are married to a saint.

Our group, God's Tiny Angels, works on Christmas items for the babies this time of year. We just finished up on this.
I made a blanket and some Santa hats.
Some of the ladies that work with my daughter at the local blood bank graciously donated their time and efforts to make some Santa hats too!
They aren't part of our group, but we ALWAYS appreciate any donations that anyone cares to make to help the babies.
Many of our group members also donated stockings and items for stocking stuffers. Our group leader, Danette is in the process of filling the stockings with Santa hats, blankets, bottles, pacifiers, bottle covers, socks, booties, hats, bibs and other assorted goodies. The last I heard, there are over 106 stockings stuffed to the brim with goodies for lots of lucky babies for Christmas! I love belonging to this group!
Our next project through December 31st is going to be booties for the babies. We know everyone is usually pretty busy with other things through the holidays so booties are a good choice this time of year. They work up fast and are easy to pick up and put down when you need to.
May all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with the love and warmth of enjoying your family!
