In January we set a lot of goals, and are coming really close to meeting them by the end of the year.
We gave a scholarship away at the end of the 2010-11 school year to a graduating senior from our local high school.

In March we delivered the following items to different departments at our local hospital:
- 25 small stuffed animals and 51 crayon/activity book Ziploc bag kits to the ER
- 13 blue and 11 white fleece blanket newborn kits (included a newborn onesie and pair of socks) to the Nursery
- 2 fleece sport blankets, 7 red fleece blankets, 6 green fleece blankets, 1 pink quilt, 2 crayon roll-up bags, 11 fabric bags with crayons and coloring books, and 2 plaid fleece blankets with crocheted edges to the Pediatrics department.

At the end of last year, we also made some self-binding receiving blankets and burp cloths. We put them together into kits for Baby Your Baby, as well.

We are really excited about what is happening next month though. We have a busy November planned. On November 18th we are hosting a charity viewing of the newest movie in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn Part 1. We are selling tickets for $25, which includes the movie ticket, your charitable donation, and your entrance into our door prize drawing. We've already started taking donations, and they are incredible so far!

Also in November we are participating in the Festival of Trees. All proceeds from Festival of Trees go to benefit the Primary Children's Medical Center, which is a cause that is very dear to our hearts. Our tree this year is dedicated to all little boys, with a theme of "Lil' Boys Are Made Of". We are really excited about how this tree is coming together, and it is going to be darling! Festival runs from November 30th thru December 3rd, so if you are in the Salt Lake City, Utah area during that time, you should really stop by. It is a great experience, and kids love seeing all of the fun Christmas trees.
We will continue posting updates on our November events as they approach, so please keep checking back for more info, photos, updates, etc.!
