ORNAPODS: Christmas Gifts Courtesy of Omnipod

This year we decided to give Sweetpea's teachers a little something EXTRA as part of their Christmas gifts.

ORNAPODS!



Ever since I saw Laura Houston from Houston We Have a Problem do this...  I knew I wanted one!  Then when I got my very own Ornapod in the mail from the Lovely Laura, I was hooked!  They were so cool!

At the time, I didn't expect that Sweets would be podding by next Christmas!  But here we are!  Podders!  (Which, by the way, we are LOVING!  I promise to post about our first 6 months with the Omnipod soon!)

And I knew immediately what to do with all those little pods once they were no longer being used as a life saving medical device! 

Ornaments, of course!

I thought they would make great little gifts to attach to the tops of presents.  A cute little something from us. And a nice way to spread some Diabetes Awareness and Education!

What I didn't expect was the reaction we got.

I thought her teachers would think they were cool.  Cute.  Maybe a little odd...  Hopefully not gross...  I mean they WERE on her body... (we did clean them with alcohol...)

But we got some tears.

I suppose that when you think about that cute little ornament being a PART of her.  Something that was giving her life saving medicine for three days... 

Yeah.  You could get a little choked up.

I like to think of them as just another way to see the possibilities and the beauty that diabetes brings to our lives. 

And a pretty fun little craft project!
