The Christmas Memory Album.
Not long before she passed away my mother told me of a gorgeous Christmas tradition and everyone I have told of it loves it. Unfortunately my Mum introduced it to our family when my boys were a bit too old, then the next Christmas season she passed away so we didn’t feel much like continuing it on, and now it is too late. In her memory I have decided to pass it on to everyone I know who is having a baby.
First you need a photo album. I like the ones that have room for a photo on the cover. Every year take a photo of your grandchild or child in front of the Christmas tree or with his/her stocking or whatever takes your fancy. You may decide to record other annual Christmas activities. My girlfriend is going to record each year’s attempt at gingerbread houses. As well as the photos each year you write a note recording some or all of the following information:
Who baby spent Christmas with,
Where Christmas was spent
Favourite Christmas present
And when they get old enough, favourite Christmas memory.
Imagine the fun you and they will have over the years looking back….
I hope you enjoy this idea. I really wish we had done it but rest assured I will be doing it for my grandbabies - in the fullness of time that is!
Till Next time............Happy stitching
P.S. Don't tell my boys I published these pics! Cute huh!
