Tracing a Masterpiece

Tracing a Masterpiece

Eva is an interesting one. She’s perfectly fine being surrounded by the debris of her room and when she wants to work on something and create she just moves a pile from here to there. She also creates how she likes. I walked into her room and she was sitting on her desk. This is her preferred method of using the desk. Only when she is in a class do I see her actually sitting on a chair at the desk.

So, she’s sitting on her desk and drawing on the window. That is actually not correct, she using the light from the window to trace something for whatever she is creating next. She explained that she does not have a lightboard. However, she does have one, a Crayola one from years ago, but she likes her own methods much better.

Allison was away overnight with a couple of friends. So, I had the kids tonight to myself and we got pizza and watched The Princess Bride. Allison does not like the movie and now, neither does Andy. He was doing fine with it most of the way through but when Inigo gets stabbed by the Count Andy lost it. He hates seeing anything like that. And when that happens in a movie he freaks out and runs away. I had forgotten that part. He managed to pull it together with the help of his sister and we finished the movie after that scene was over.

After Andy went to bed Eva wanted me to watch another movie with her, Love Simon. This is her favorite movie and she wanted to share it with me. It was quite good. She explained that she watches the Marvel movies with me because I like them and she wanted me to watch one that she liked. I’m always willing to check out new movies with her.

For the Glory of Merlin #Trollhunters Season 3 Has Arrived!

TrollHunters Season 3

I have been eagerly awaiting the return of DreamWorks Trollhunters Part 3. This is the final season of the show that I have loved from the minute I watched the opening credits of the first episode. It is an incredible adventure that is for the whole family. There is great humor, courageous action and stunningly beautiful sets. When Season 2 came out I won a set of Trollhunters action figures from Funko through the Week99er website. I never opened them, until today. Here is my unboxing video.

I had fun with that one and tweeted it out, later in the afternoon I received a notification that the show’s creator, Guillermo del Toro, retweeted and liked my tweet. I was blown away!
