If It's Groovy 4th Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to the If It's Groovy Birthday Blog Hop! As we celebrate the 4th birthday of IIG. We welcome you to site back, take some time and visit the blog hostesses as each has prepared calendar pages that we hope will inspire you to crate your own:) We also have some friends who are playing along with us from the True XOXO blog and they may have calendar pages and/or holidays to share with you.

You should have just left January on Christa blog: Do What You Love

I picked February for 4 good reasons:
My Daughter's Birthday month
Snow usually accumulates nicely this month.
Hearts Day (coined by my daughter) aka Valentine's Day
My Husband's Birthday month

On to the page:

Here is a close-up of our February calendar: 
1st - Hubby's Birthday
2nd - Groundhog's Day (my US roots)
14th - Heart's Day (coined by my daughter)
18th - Family Day (celebrated here in certain provinces in Canada, not in US)
23rd - My daughter's Birthday (Bundled Up and Rosy Cheeks in photos)

All Bundled Up:

Rosy Cheeks still after hot chocolate which is still on her lips.

My Journaling on the steam lines.
