RMH Photos

I have a few photos to share from two recent RMH events.  The first is when the youth group made 20 no-sew blankets for The Welcome Project to give to kids at RMH when they check in.  It is an awesome organization for the youth group to join up with, and they seemed to have a great time doing it!

Everybody is busy at work!

We did all "boy" blankets, since the staff said they often run out of the kind of blankets older boys might like and end up giving them girly patterns.

We even had a mom stay to help!  (She's also Caleb's Mom's Morning Out teacher, and he adores her!!)

This beautiful girl took all of the squares we cut out to make the corners of the blankets, and made two awesome pillows with them!  She attached a photo pocket in the front and put youth group photos in them, so now they are one-of-a-kind decorations for the youth room.  So creative!!

I was much more diligent at taking pictures at the blanket-making event.  I didn't even bring my camera to RMH when we made dinner because I was afraid something might happen to it.  These pictures are from my sister, and she (as were the rest of us!) was too busy to take many pictures.  But, at least you can get a glimpse of what we did!

We made a Mexican meal for dinner, so of course there were tacos!

We had a few young helpers come along, and they were SO good!  They really pitched in and did whatever needed to be done.

Afterwards, there were lots of dishes to wash, dry, and put away!

We had lots of cookies for dessert, and popcorn for a snack during the craft.

This is one of the awesome families (holding the baby of one of my friends!) from Kuwait.  They are going to be here for a year and have been to RMH a lot since their daughter was born.  They have the same surgeon as Abby.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures!  I know this was a lengthy post, but I have been meaning to post pictures and keep forgetting.
