Packing...the bins overfloweth!

We have sincerely been blown away by the donations by neighbors, family, co-workers and friends.  Check out our dining room table a few nights ago.

The mountain of diapers!  Truly awesome!

These are the bins full of diapers, wipes, formula, bottles, bibs, baby wash, toys, rice cereal, scrubs and lots of other baby items that we'll be taking with us.  J and I had some good laughs trying to pack and weigh these bins. :)  That's 300lbs of goodness!  How cool is it to think of all the little babies and children that this will touch? 

Thank you all so much for your overwhelming generosity.  We are so thankful...

Okay, my bags are mostly packed.  I have all of the lists ready for Nana and Pop (schedules, medical forms, menus, phone numbers and even a "where to find it" list. :)  I'm going to go play some games with M and T.  Try to sleep.  And then at the bright and early hour of 5:00am Becca and I will be off to Atlanta!

(So, we are definitely each able to bring 2 of those bins each--because it's a "humanitarian" flight, we should be able to take a 3rd each--but there's no guarantee until we'll there.  It should be an adventure working that all out. But good! :)
