Throughout the year, write down memories.... ‘firsts’, a funny comment by one of your children, accomplishments, etc. Add thru out the year: ticket stubs from movies, concerts, or sporting events, snapshots, small souvenirs from travels, any trinket or token attached to something you want to remember.
