Each year we send out a holiday letter of the important events in our family. Without realizing it we have preserved family memories and it has become a great way to see what happened each year. Our children have looked back and fondly recalled all of their past experiences. Our grandchildren now enjoy learning family history.

Be creative with today's technology and make it a visual and auditory experience.
