Thank you for the nice comments. My original idea was to create a game that a family could play on New Year's but have it so that they learn something about each other (similar questions to those that are in this book). But it was too hard to close the generation gap between little kids and parents. AND keep the young ones interested. So, this is my solution... at least it's quick for them to do (and for me to make!) You can't beat $0.69 for the notebook!
Here are the questions so you don't have to type it in yourself:
Things to remember about our family
• Each year around New Year’s, fill out this little book with the answers to the questions below.
• Use one page per person. Be sure to put your name, age, and date at the top of the page.
• For the last question, that can be anything you want to experience this coming year (learn something, go somewhere, etc.)
• Put the book somewhere you can find it next year.
1. Favorite food
2. Favorite drink
3. Favorite restaurant
4. Favorite friend(s)
5. Favorite TV show
6. Favorite movie
7. Favorite book I read this year
8. Favorite music
9. Favorite memory of this year
10. Favorite hobby
11. One thing I want to learn or do this coming year

What a great idea!! My family loves to remember old times, laugh, cry, whatever. This book will be so great to look back on over the years. Family history is so important. My kids are old (18, 19, and 23) and I still think I will start this book this year. They can look back and remember high school and college and I'm sure it won't be long before they start getting married and giving me grandchildren. TFS, Ann
