I read about this idea a few weeks ago and planned to blog it today with my own spin on it.
I found the original idea at:
Today we are getting ready for New Year's Dinner and preparing for a trip that Ray won for him and Gabe to the Fiesta Bowl. We
should, WILL have a great picture for our capsule by the end of the day ~ the family just doesn't know it yet. (Te-He)
I have the perfect piece to add to the jar from something that took place last night. Just after the ball dropped, just after I said good-night to Gabe and Zech and just after I reminded them I was going to bed and to keep the sound down.......BOOOM!!
And I mean louder than anyone's fireworks in the neighborhood kind of boom! Apparently they decided to make their own "fireworks" by lighting a can of Silly String on fire. Oh, the excitement of raising boys!
Anyway, I will place our New Year's picture on the front of our Blessings Capsule (as I will call it) as well as a piece from their "fireworks" and throughout the year we will drop blessings into the jar as they are bestowed upon us. On this day next year we will have a fun jar to reminisce through.
Happy New Year!
