Looking for ideas to include in daughters’ journals

I am looking for ideas on what to include in journals that I am creating for my two daughters. I do plan to journal their adoption stories and traveling to China to get them. I would like to include quotes, other stories, things that are exclusive to each of the girls, and whatever else I can come up with to share. This has been an idea for awhile and I decided why not act on it now. I have also been working on recipe cards for them. My daughters are 18 and 23. Any ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.

"The day I met you" kind of stories from family members they are close to- they could mail them to you.

A family tree would be great. One of your family, and one of their birth family, if appropriate/available.

This will be a beautful project for you and your girls!

tell them stories of your life. They will love hearing about your history.

What were the fashions when you were in HS?

What was your worst date like?

What was your best date like?

Did you work while in HS?

Tell childhood stories.

Did you ever steal anything as a child? Did you get in trouble?

Were you ever really sick?

Did you ever break a limb?

Did your parents ever catch you telling a lie?

Did you ever cheat at school and wish you hadn't?

Did you go to prom?

Did you play sports?

Did you play a musical instrument?

Were you a tomboy or girly girl?

If you could give them anything in life what would it be? Not tangible but intangibles. love, good health, happiness...

If your were grated three wishes what would you wish for?

List ten simple things that make you happy.

What is your favorite color?

Tell each of them why you like them as a person not just love them.

What foods did they dislike as babies and toddlers?

What foods did they like?

What did they like to play when they were little?

Were they scared the first time they went to the dentist?

What was their first day of school like when you dropped them off?

Just think back and reflect on memories and share. Some will be short and some longer and more detailed.

What is your favorite meal?

I would tie recipes to holiday traditions or their favorites now and when they were younger. Maybe the recipe card could have the recipe on front and your notes and memories on the back.
