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!), the Olympics, plus I have two special family member’s birthdays to celebrate. Yippee~
And let’s not forget ~ 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)!
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 gathering and spend time with family and 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.
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!
