29 gifts have been sent out!

Good morning everyone! Well spring is almost here or maybe not. We have had a couple nice days and then it gets cold again. A little tease?? I definitely have spring fever! I can't wait to get out there and plant flowers in my little flower pots and wear flip flops. = )  I hope everyone had a great Easter. I had so much fun seeing all the pictures of the babies wearing their Sweet Savannah Knits bunny hats. Thank you to all the mommies for sending me pictures of them. It made my Easter so much better. Holidays are very hard for me as I always wish Savannah was here to do all the traditional things. I would do anything to have colored Easter Eggs with her (even though she would still be a little young).  On Easter day there was a post on facebook from a girl I went to high school with. Her post was complaining that she "hates Easter grass" (obviously complaining because the grass was probably messy and all over the house) and to have a happy "freakin" Easter (her words, not mine).  This outraged me!!!! She was complaining about Easter grass???? How about she be happy she is spending Easter morning with her children!!!!!!! Some aren't so lucky...... I would throw Easter grass ALL over my house, even if it took hours to clean up, to have spent Easter morning with my daughter.  There are so many more things to worry about in life then complaining about Easter grass all over your house. I definitely don't want this blog to be negative but I wanted to bring this up just as a reminder to everyone-   Everyone be thankful and feel blessed for your children. Please don't sweat the small things!!!

This week I completed and mailed out two sets for two beautiful babies! The first set went to a little cutie named Zoey who was born at just 23 weeks weighing 1lb 5oz. What a miracle! Everyone please say a little prayer that baby Zoey grows big and strong!

The second set went to a baby boy named Kian! He is about 7.5 pounds and was born with Downs Syndrome.  Keep him in your thoughts and I hope he loves his teddy bear hat and teddy bear!
I decided last week that I needed to make little tags to attach to the gifts so I can write who it is for and who had requested it (if it was not the parents).  I also made up info cards that explains Sweet Savannah Knits' mission. I realized that sending the packages with no information maybe confusing. Plus, to me,  the story behind SSK is as important as the gift itself. I want the parents to know the meaning behind my knits and Savannah's story = ) Here is the info card:

I want to give a big thank you to those that have donated in the last week!! I know I keep saying it but I am so thankful for you all. The more donations I receive the more gifts I can send out. It also allows me to do send extra items such as the teddy bears. If anyone has any other ideas of fun items I can send with my packages please let me know!
What else has been going on???    Well Scott and I are on the marketing team for the SHARE walk! The walk will be on October 12, 2013 this year. I'm so excited to be on this team and to help out. We have been to a few meetings and the planning has begun! This walk means so much to angel parents like Scott and I. It is a special day/event dedicated just to our little angels.    
I want to give a HUGE CONGRATS to my friend's Chris and Anna Stroh on the birth of their beautiful baby girl Rhiannon Victoria!!! She is so perfect and so adorable. I could not be more happy for them.  Congrats guys and I can't wait to meet her = )
Everyone please pray for one of my best friends, Courtney, her Mom and family. Mrs. Webb is currently in hospice care.  She is one of the sweetest, nicest and strongest women I know.  You are all in my thoughts constantly.....
