The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

Everyday Confetti Book Review

 Your Year-Round Guide to Celebrating
Holidays and Special Occasions

SUMMARY:  Got a calendar packed with reasons to celebrate but a brain that lacks ideas?  Special people you want to love on but limited time to do it?
  Relax.  We've got you covered.
     Everyday Confetti is your go-to guide to making holidays, birthdays, special events, and even the everyday special.  Inside you'll find more than two hundred ways to make memories with your family, including easy recipes, fun activities, and inexpensive decorating ideas - all simple, doable and stress-free.

REVIEW:  This book came to my house just in time.  The month of January is a popular one in our house for birthdays.  With an upcoming Thirteenth birthday for my daughter and a Seventh birthday for my youngest son,  I was looking for some ideas for some things to do and celebrate and make these days special for them.  This book is chocked full of ideas, easy and simple just like I need them, to give me a place to start. 
     The authors don't stop with just birthdays and national holidays but for fun days like Name Day, Siblings' Night, and celebrating spiritual birthdays.  They also give hints on how to stay connected with your friends, neighbors and college-bound kids.  Included are family traditions the authors have in their own homes as well as some you could start in yours like creating a special plate to be used for a good report card, special recognition at work/school, inviting singles over for Valentine's, and making a special recipe for a specific holiday.
     The recipes included are tried and true ones used in their own homes and families.  They look like they are easy to make.  I've marked some of them to go back and try with my own family.
     This is a great book for anyone looking to make special occasions, holidays or even just everyday a little brighter and more fun.
