The winners of my Red Hot giveaway are Sally Brown (free $40 retreat ticket ~ Woo Hoo!) & Jenny C. (out-of-state Retreat package!). A huge thanks to all for your great insights about lukewarm/red hot living! 🙂
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! I have two special family member’s birthdays to celebrate! And, the Red Hot Retreat is coming up on February 25th & 26th. (Woo Hoo!).
Plus, let’s not forget ~ next Wednesday, February 2nd….Groundhog’s 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 here)
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 this February?? I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by She Sparkles! Have a super, JOY-filled week!!
Many blessings to you~

I'm with you, love to celebrate anything! But, we've never celebrated Groundhog Day. How cute! Always enjoy stopping by. Have an extra special week!
