Thank you Biggby!

Growing up in Lansing I have always been a huge fan of Biggby coffee (way back before the name change).  When Biggby came out with their Devos Children's hospital mugs, I smiled in appreciation!  They came out not long after Gabriel was home from one of his hospital stays.

I ran out and bought everyone in my family a mug.

All of the parents who have children in the Devos Children's Hospital's Intensive Feeding Program have found small addiction in Biggby coffee to help pass the sometimes seemingly endless hours.  I decided that I wanted to get the parents each a Devos Children's mug to help them remember their time in the feeding program.  Unable to find enough mugs at any one Biggby location I emailed their corporate office to see if I could buy the mugs though there.

Within a couple days I got an email stating that they don't have any of the Devos mugs stored at corporate, what is out on the shelves is all that they have.  (Dang, it was worth the thought.) However they would like to donate some mugs to the families in the program and the Ronald McDonald house. 

A few days after that (today) UPS came knocking on our door.
In the words of Gabriel and Isabella:
Bro-Ther, check these AWESOME travel mugs out.  Do you know what a travel mug is for?

It is to drink from sis (Gabriel signing drink)!

Wow brother you may not drink from a mug but you do know what it is for.
Photobucket
Of course I do sis!

Gabriel you are getting a little too close to my mug!

I am just sitting over here drinking and minding my own business!

Gabriel everyone knows that is a lie, you don't drink out of mugs!  In fact up until a week ago you only drank out of a bottle.

I need these mugs Lala!

What do you need them for Gabriel?
Photobucket
I need to give them to all of my friends at therapy's parents because Biggby is amazing and sent the mugs for them!
Photobucket
Wow, That was super amazing of them!  I know your friends parents will LOVE these mugs!

Biggby sent enough mugs for each parent to have one and the extras to take to the Ronald McDonald house for families there.
