I'd like to do this challenge and I would like to see pages done with photos of family treasures that have been handed down. Sometimes the simple things have lots of meaning and they need to be recorded.
I plan to leave a disc or album for my children and grandchildren so they will really know me. There is so much I wish I would've asked before my mom passed away (had Alzheimer's). I want to know exactly how she and my father met, who took care of her when her mother died (age 9), what hobbies she might have had when young, pets, boyfriends, more about siblings...I am attempting to cover it all for my kids.
