Delivering NICU Thanksgiving bags! We had enough of everything that we had extra blankets for the hospital, extra snacks, candy, lotion for the nurses & of course the wonderful bouncy seat donation!

Papa saw the bags last night before we were done & said, "You're going to have to get bigger bags!" They were filled to the top! Each bag included: receiving blanket, candy, crackers, granola/breakfast bars, fruit cup, tissues, lotion, hand sanitizer, notepad & pen, note from us, handwritten note from someone at East Side, a baby hat, a booklet about car seat safety, information about the church, & something extra! The something extra was: a bigger blanket, toy, Wubbanub (paci), or $5 Sonic gift card. We also had enough monetary donations that we were able to purchase 2 $30 & 9 $25 gift cards to Cracker Barrel. They have a Thanksgiving menu with them & Nurse Libby & her friends will give those to whoever they think needs it the most. I am unbelievably amazed at the response to this year's project. Thank you all SO much! We are praying for each family who will receive the bags.
