did you make one for your baby? we got a kit. with lots of papers to fill out, like what was the price of gas at the time she was born and what were the big headlines and the most famous celebs. we also put stuff in, her hat from the hospital, pictures, and a bunch of other things that i can't even remember now. it's been only 3 years since we made it so it will be a great thing to open in 15 years or so.

Sure did! But it's still kind of a work in progress. I need to hurry and finish it. Here's what we put in it: *Parenting magazine (to see if parenting styles have changed) *Gossip magazine (to see what was going on in Hollywood...just thought it would be fun since she's a girl and might be into that kinda stuff) *A paper from the day she was born *Cards from her birth *When she was born, they put her footprints on her daddy's shirt. That's in a plastic bag and inside of the capsule *We're also gonna write letters to her on her first birthday and put it in there Like I said, it's a work in progress, but we're slowly getting there!

oh ya, i forgot, relatives wrote her letters and sealed them in there as well for my daughter. they also put something in the envelopes but wouldn't tell me. i think they are some sort of special coins.

I did not even know there was a kit. Well my daughter is sixteen there may not have been one back then. You would be surprised at the new toys and things that are out there now for babies and toddlers. I asked my mom the other day where all this stuff was when my Heather was a baby. Believe me she did not do without but the kitchen sets they have out now are so real looking.

I have a box of stuff that I have been keeping for my kids and maybe some day (hate to say) when I die they will open it and it has a lot of good times in the box and things that went on in their lives and mine while they were growing up.
