Well I must say I feel terrible because I had planned to do monthly updates on this and with moving and everything, I guess it hit the back burner.  On a good note, we still have a great collection of items and it's not even December yet, so we can still knock out a few more items on this list.  A big thanks to Tara and Kaylan for donating lots of goodies!!!  

So here is the last post and I have updated the list to where we are at.  We would love any contributions - big or small!  Especially all you dedicated Black Friday shoppers.  

I was just visiting Blank hospital to visit my nephew Oliver and it is a great hospital and the kids will really love all these goodies!

You can send anything to my attention at:

Jessica Bormann
PO Box 278
Baxter, IA 50028

or if you have to do UPS/FedEx or I believe Speedy is super cheap, you can ship here:

 Colfax, IA 50054

I'm so glad you posted this b/c I totally forgot about it! I have plastic stacking rings for babies. I'm assuming those are included in the plastic toys for infants category??? If not I can get something else. Let me know if they won't work otherwise I'll get them mailed out to you!
