FHE: Family History

If you'd like to do something similar with your family, 
you could copy and paste the following into a document that you can print.

Scripture: 1 Nephi 1:1

Activity: Talk about the importance of keeping family records and write letters to ourselves using a revised version of the form found in the January 2005 issue of  The Friend (p. 39)

Treat: Caramel-dipped snacks (I bought some caramel dip on sale this week. I don't know what we'll dip yet....maybe apples, or pretzels....Whatever it is, it's sure to be yummy!)

I love the letter. I think that would be a great thing to do once a year. Maybe have each child do one on or close to their birthday. Or maybe at conference time. Wondering what I could pick to have something to remind me/them to do it.
