Thank You, Sandy!!!

These beautiful knit hats and booties were made by Sandy from Ohio.
Thank you, Sandy! They are absolutely beautiful!

I know that are new military moms will be thrilled to dress their newborns in your handiwork!!

Thank you, Lynn!!

Lynn from Arizona sent another box of her wonderful baby hats. I didn't get an exact count, but there are at least 150 adorable hats in this shipment - many of them in red and white for the holidays.

She also included photo's of her adorable twin granddaughters modeling grandma's work.

Those little angels are adorable, Lynn! They are wonderful models for your hats!!!

Thanks for sending so many hats and for sending the photos of your sweet grand babies!!!

edited: I edited this post because I made a horrible mistake. I listed these hats as being sent by Judy, but they were sent by Lynn from AZ. Lynn, I'm so so sorry!!!

Lynn is one of our most active donors who has made more hats that I can count for Marine Corps Kids. Lynn, I'd know your hats anywhere, and I apologize for my mistake!!! Wishing you and your adorable grandbabies a wonderful Holiday Season!

Thank you, Karen!!!

Many Thanks to Karen from Wisconsin who sent a large box of donations for the holidays!

Karen sent 4 large fleece blankets that kids of all ages will love, a few fleece tote bags. The leopard stripe will be great for moms to carry baby's things, and the little fire truck bags will be big hits with the kids. There are 9 fleece scarves that are very soft and warm. Finally Karen made two adorable bibs! I've never seen bibs quite like these, and I think that they're so cute, smart and practical! I'm not sure if they were made from towels of from bolts of terry material, but Karen sewed in necks to make cute poncho style bibs. I think this is so clever!

Karen, I don't have your e-mail address, so I hope you're reading this blog and seeing that your lovely donations were received. Thank you so much for your continued support! If you are reading this, please drop me an e-mail so that I'll have your e-mail address too!

These photos really don't show how wonderful these are! Each little set is even more precious than the last - and that's hard to imagine!
