DD 2014: Black Friday and more

Hi you all, got some more of my Dec Daily 2014 accomplished over Wed and Thurs night. How are you doing with your December Daily? There is lots of inspiration worth checking out over at Let's December Daily
So I left off with Thanksgiving day the last time I posted. Today is about Black Friday, a special birthday and November 29th. (Heavily photos post)
Black Friday is the day Dave and I go out shopping for gifts for the family, it seems to be a tradition for us and the only day we knew we both be off of work. We don't do the early sales but we head out around 9am and start shoppin'. We start off our day looking at all the sale flyers first while having our coffee.
 We make notes of what we need to stop and get. Pictures from the actual ads are on my page.
I took a photo of the pile of papers on the page too are some cut ups of the logos of some of the places we stopped at.
 The title for this page actually came from one of the ads it was perfect for the page. This is Dave and I leaving Sears with the girls gifts in hand. My journaling and the date stamped.
 The trunk of the car so far. the Cha Ching was already on the page, a nice touch :)
 That evening we went over to wish our Grandson a Happy Birthday (Nov. 26th is the actual day) Tristan is our Thanksgiving Baby you might as well say and with that Brad and Katherine decided no big party, so this was the chosen day for us to see him. Tristan has taken to Pappy very well :) and he's doing real good at opening his gift by himself too.
The journaling and Tristan opening up his gift, a piggy bank.

 Nov 29 is a leftovers meal and I found this recipe in the paper for the left overs, have to say it wasn't to bad and I think we'll be having it each year unless another recipe comes along and I give it a try. Dave picked up some things for the boys for Christmas today, too. I used my Feast of Fun counterfeit kit for this page.
A closer look of the page, with the recipe and my journaling. December is right around the corner, but for now this is how far I got. Planning to work on it a bit next week, till then have a great day today :) Stop back tomorrow for the new week challenge over at Lasting Memories.

  3. You're on a roll now Tina! So impressed by your Black Friday haul, it's not really such a big thing here in the UK, but it's beginning to catch on. Thanks for sharing at Let's December Daily.

  4. I have no idea how you can cope with Black Friday. A normal weekend in town is enough to make me feel a little claustrophobic. Too many people! Thanksgiving looks fun though! x

  5. Look how you are getting this together! Oooh I love your planning for Black Friday - and so cool you and dh work as a fabulous team! Cute birthday pics... oh boy you are getting there!!!!

  6. great that you are working through the DD from last year - it's such a worthwhile project to create and look back on. these pages look super with all your bits and pieces as well as photos and stories captured

  7. This is really FAB! You've really painted a picture with each page that will take you right back to the day. You go, gurl!
