A few days ago I decorated this jar to be our 2012 memories jar. The idea is to write down things that happen and things the kids do and say during the year and put them in the jar. Then next year on New Year's Eve take them out and read them together. Sometimes I think "I will never forget that" but then I do, so I wanted somewhere to write them down. I plan on keeping the jar and its memories and doing a new one each year, if it works well.
Happy New Year!
