After too many holidays and birthdays and celebrations getting the bare minimum (we have had a rough 2 years), we are dubbing this the YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS. I have vowed to celebrate each season with a party of some sort. This Valentine's party was our first one and it really was enjoyable for the girls.
Even though we are in a temporary home, we were determined to still have a party with the girls new friends (all these girls have a Daddy that work with Chuck).
We had lunch together and lots of crafts. The girls made Valentine's for their friends and families with the use of die cuts and lots of doilies. We also made lip gloss and I posted those pictures on another blog that I am part of. If you are interested in that post go HERE.
We also made heart shaped crayons (so easy and really cute). They almost look like tie die.
We have made these before but these turned out extra cute.
I am going to really make the effort to foster friendships with these kind of friends. I believe that it takes the time and effort for friendships to grow and I want to encourage the kids in good friendships. We may party the year away with these same 5 girls, since it is the YEAR OF CELEBRATIONS. =)
