The idea is simple. Records things that have happened that are funny, sentimental, sad, or just plain wonderful on the paper. Make sure to write that date of the event on the paper, too. One December 31st, 2012, take out all the "memories" and relive your year through what you recorded.
This is going to be a new Elliott Tradition. I love the idea of going back through your year and seeing what was going on for each person in my house at certain times. This would be super fun with a larger family too.
