Groundhogs Day Family Fun

Have you joined the A to Z Memory Verse Challenge? It's not too late. All the details here - plus a Starbucks GIVEAWAY through Thursday, January 19th. Woo Hoo!

Hey Friends! :)

As you know ~ I love to celebrate!! :)

I love "marking moments", making ordinary days "extraordinary", and finding simple ways to brighten up our everyday lives.

I truly believe, "Life should not just lived, it should be celebrated!".

Thus, the reason I am thrilled February is almost here!!

Valentine's Day is one of my all-time favorite holidays, plus there's the Super Bowl (not that I like football - remember I'm a hockey mom - but I do like Super Bowl snacks!) and I have two special family member's birthdays to celebrate.

And let's not forget ~ Thursday, February 2nd.... Groundhogs Day!

Now please know, I really don't care if the Groundhog sees his shadow. I can never remember "which" means "what" anyway (shadow/no shadow, 6 weeks of winter ~ you know what I mean)! Who cares. :)

We started having Groundhog's Day parties a few years ago just for the FUN of it ~ and you know what, we have a ball! What a simple, easy way to have a little fun after school and spend time with friends. We love it! :)

How can you resist a cute little cupcake like this?? (Recipe

At the party, we also like to look on the internet to see if the Groundhog saw his shadow.

Again, we know Who decides how many weeks of winter are left, but the kids get a kick out of watching the news report.

And what party would be complete without crafts? You can get some great ideas
here or here or here.

What about for you?? Anything special you'll be celebrating over the next few weeks?? I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by She Sparkles! Have a super, JOY-filled week!!

Many blessings to you~

Love the cupcakes! My husband and I will be celebrating our 10yr wedding anniversary on Groundhogs day. I'm trying to decide what sort of special thing to do for him. We keep joking with each other that paper is supposed to be the big 10yr gift (we think) so maybe I'll write him a love letter. I don't know...

Hope you are doing well! I still read every post even though I don't always comment. Sometimes I read She Sparkles on the go with my cell phone. You are always inspiring me in my own faith journey. Thanks for that! :)

Love the memory verse idea. I don't have birthday or holidays until Valentine's Day but am taking two trips to see family. Super excited about those :)
