Approximately five years ago, Allen and I began a journal entitled "The Feast and Celebration" book. The purpose of this book is to record family and friends' visits for holidays. It lists the people that attend and the menu. I decorate each page to add to the festive occasion. I use Susan Branch stickers, which is the only way there would be any type of "graphics" on the page, since an Artist, I am not.
I love the fact that we began this book. It was Allen's suggestion, and I gladly took him up on it. Soon after a holiday is over, I take the book out, and record it. We have enjoyed looking back and reminescing about one holiday or another. I believe keeping a record of sorts, whether it is photos, scrapbooking, journals etc. is a wonderful way to keep your family's legacy alive.
