I enjoyed a recent Dick Eastman blog post featuring The Heirloom Registry's suggestion that people participate in White Friday. White Friday is when a family sleeps in, has breakfast together, then goes around the house looking for items with a history. The registry has a downloadable form if desired, but the object is to document the family heirlooms. For larger items, the documentation can be attached to the back; for smaller ones, the documentation can be filed with other important papers - maybe your will?
Enjoy and cherish the family time, and have a fun-filled White Friday!
