a holiday memory book

My dearest, childhood friend gave me the idea to start a holiday memory book.  It is a simple way to gather the photos, cards and Santa pictures in one, safe place.  I chose an expandable scrapbook style, so I can add to it when we need the extra pages.  The first page is our first Christmas as a married couple.  Once we had children I began to also send a small note with our picture.  Every year has two pages.  Our family photo and letter on one side and the boys’ Santa picture on the other.  I buy holiday themed papers at a craft store along with a few embellishments.  The beauty of this book is that I only have a small, quick project once a year.  At the end of the holiday season, I toss our card and pictures in the back of the book- so they are ready for the following year.  I am going to work on the 2012 pages this week.  The book sits on our coffee table throughout December.  I love looking through it.  It is a treat to see how far we’ve come!
