December Daily® 2015 | Day Twenty-Two

Welcome to December Daily® 2015 | Day 22. 

Seriously loved finally getting a chance to see the new Star Wars movie yesterday. Simon has been counting down the days and it was special on so many levels to be able to watch and experience it with him because the movies and characters have long been his favorite. I loved watching him get all the connections and references to the older movies as we both got excited at precisely the same moments - hard to beat that. And really, as a kid who grew up playing with Star Wars toys and watching and loving the original movies this was just awesome to experience. I loved it and I honestly can't wait to see it again. 

This is probably it for me for posting before Christmas. I'll share the remainder of my stories after the holiday weekend and include video that shows the last few days as well. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and thank you again for joining me on this journey in 2015. 

Here's a look at Day 22: 

For the full page 6x8 I printed out the receipt that was emailed to me after purchasing my tickets online. This in and of itself tells a story of the way I buy movie tickets these days - rarely do I have a paper ticket any longer as most of the time I buy them online and then have them sent to my phone to be able to pull up to enter the movie. 

When printing it from my email I just adjusted the size to about 75% and it ended up being just the right size for my 6x8 pocket. 

The page opposite is right around 5x7. The reason I went with that size is because I know my story for Day 23 is going to be about visiting Santa and I'll have a 5x7 photo from that experience. Stamps are those same Educational Insights Stamps I used on vellum earlier in the month on Day 4. I love the repetition of bringing something back I had used earlier in the album.

    Ah, yes, more or less how I feel about seeing your December Daily pages! Don't want it to end. I'm documenting through to end of Dec as we still have a getaway planned, and will put it all together later. Have a blessed Christmas Ali!

    We have a theater here with assigned seating too – it's got the comfiest reclining chairs and "table" service from the concessions. SO AWESOME! We tried taking the kids there last weekend to see the new Alvin and the Chipmunks movie buuuuut it wasn't playing there. WOMP.

    SO COOL you and Simon were able to do this together!!

    The kids gave me a play by play of the movie, so fun seeing their excited faces as they ran into my bedroom to tell me all about it. Even my 16 year olds. Amazing the feelings this movie franchise evokes. Anyway, I love that big letter stamped pages. That's something I need to remember too.

    Merry Christmas, Ali.

    Star Wars has been and continues to be a big deal in our house, as we are all invested in it. As a family, we've seen it twice; my autistic son really seems to enjoy it and connect with it. I am seeing it again on Sunday with girlfriends, to celebrate a strong female character taking the reins for new adventures.

    I love your point about including the ticket stub. Rarely do we get paper ticket stubs anymore. Love the large title journaling on the opposite side. Hope you had a merry Christmas!
