Kid-Friendly Olympics/Valentine's Celebration Update :)

Hello dear bloggy Friends!! :)

I hope you've had a GREAT week! I once heard someone say,

"Life should not just be lived, it should be CELEBRATED!".

I love it! :) I try to make every day a CELEBRATION ~ for me, my family and our friends! This past week has been no exception!! Here are some fun photo highlights from our recent Celebrations!!

I mentioned last week we were excited for our Let the Games Begin ~ Olympics Celebration (recap
here). We had a BLAST!!

Our Olympics Celebration had Winter Olympics color sheets and crafts...



Rice Krispie Treat torches....


And, of course, Olympic~size tacos (you can see some of our party decorations behind the boys in this picture)....


A great time was had by all!! It's not too late to celebrate the Olympics with your family. The evening of closing ceremonies is also a fun time to "mark the moment"! :) What fun! :)

And, then, of course there was Valentine's Day. My favorite holiday of all! (Read more
here)


It wouldn't be a holiday without tattoos...



Valentine's Day BINGO....


And My Valentine......


What have you been up to lately?? Have you been enjoying the Olympics?? Did you celebrate Valentine's Day??
I'd love to hear from you!!

Have a SUPER day!! Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*!

God's richest blessings to you!!


P.S. Please know my love for LIFE and CELEBRATING each day comes from my deep desire to experience all that Jesus has for me! :)

This hasn't always been the case...in fact, I didn't come to know Jesus until I was almost 30 years old. If you have questions about faith or wrestle with wondering, "God, where are you??" ~ I'd love to join you on your journey. Please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail. You are not alone! :)
