I’m so excited to share a little tradition we started that was a year in the making. We thought it would be really fun to end each month by writing down a few of our favorite memories that had happened that month. We figured at the end of the year we could spend New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day reading each memory and celebrating our favorite moments together.
I tried to jazz it up a little bit by painting some Popsicle sticks and frosting a mason jar to hold our memories, but this is an activity that could be done for free as well!
Early in the year I thought New Year’s Eve would happen on a Sunday, and as an LDS family we don’t go out on Sundays. I figured this would be a fun way to spend a Sunday night together ringing in the new year by celebrating the last. Alas Leap Year happened, and we realized this was still going to be a great activity to help us remember the big and the little things that happened in 2012. It really was so fun to go through all the memories, even if it happened a few days after New Year’s Eve.
