How do you capture those special holiday memories?
I try to take a lot of pictures, but I also keep a notebook just for Christmas.
This isn’t one I use for planning or lists, it’s an album the family can look through.
I try to keep it easy and simple, or else I wouldn’t do it.
Each year I add one or two pages. I choose four to six photos, and I spend a few minutes writing about our favorite memories from that year’s Christmas.
What might be included?
- Where we lived and worked.
- Fun events and parties.
- Recipes to make again.
- Special gifts given.
- Favorite traditions started and kept.
- Christmas trees and decorations.
- Funny things said.
- Who was there.
- Places traveled.
- Blessings counted.
I hope I get to look through it in fifty years and see how our family has grown and celebrated one of our favorite times of the year.
