Lunch out with Andrew
Photo-A-Day #4257

Andrew and I went to Bellingham today to meet fellow Youtuber Midnight Owl to give her some books for The Haunted Mansion as well as a set of Nightmare Before Christmas Tsum Tsums.

While we were there we went into Friendly Neighborhood Comics. Andrew convinced me, with no prompting whatsoever, to buy a couple of Funko Pops. I got white Canary and The Atom from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

When we came home Halos sent me a box of #HalosFun. I am partnering with #HalosFun to spread Pure Goodness. The Fun Pack had coupons and more to enjoy the fun of Halos. I’ll be doing some more posts and activities with Halos soon, so be on the lookout.

Tonight, Allison and I went into Boston for an overdue night out together. We went to see the movie, A Monster Calls, as part of a sneak preview screening. The movie arrives in select theaters on December 23rd and then nationwide on January 6. Here is the description of the movie.

A visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

The movie was very well done, the artwork was incredible. I enjoyed it. It was beautifully done and had an interesting story. You can learn more about it on the social channels for the movie and also through the trailer below.

Wizards and Sorcerers Birthday

House Gryffindor

Today was Eva’s birthday party. It was a Harry Potter themed party. Allison did a great job with the party. She made floating candles, wands for the kids to paint and a sorting hat ceremony. The kids also watched part of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

Eva was so excited about everything all day. She showed such enthusiasm for everything. Her friends and family gave her some great gifts and many were Harry Potter themed. She just loves the series so much and reading the books is one of her favorite things to do. I know that she’s excited to wear her Hermione Granger costume again for Halloween.

After the party we got some pizza and watched the rest of Harry Potter. I was able to take two hours off from work and go in later so I could spend a little extra time at home with the family. Then it was time for showers and baths for the kids and I went to my office and opened up one of the TWO Marvel Collector Corps Doctor Strange boxes. for some strange reason I had two boxes sent to me. The weird thing is that the order numbers are sequential but when I go to my account there is only the one order for one of those order numbers. I tried looking up the other order number but I could not. I have no idea how that happened. So, I unboxed the one box and inside there were some great items. There was a Doctor Strange mug, tshirt, exclusive comic book cover and an exclusive Funko Pop of Doctor strange in his astral form levitating so the cloak of levitation is what is actually holding him up. It is a really great pop, although I think I would have preferred the Blue of the comic than the yellow of the movie for the Pop!. There was also a Doctor Strange Patch and an eye of Agamotto pin in the box. It was a pretty decent box, too. I now have most of the Doctor Strange related Pops that have been released.
