Photo-A-Day #4224

Doctor Strange arrives in theaters today! I wrote a review of the movie from my trip out to California to be part of the #DoctorStrangeEvent. I enjoyed the movie very much. It was visually one of the more amazing ones I have seen. I cannot wait to see it again in IMAX. I have some clips below that you can watch to get your excitement up for the movie. You can also read my SPOILER FREE review of Doctor Strange and let me know what you think of it in the comments. Or you can tell me why you are excited to see it over at my Doctor Strange Marvel Collector Corps Box Giveaway.

Last night I went over to my friend Brian’s house to start work on a new project. It is a new YouTube Channel that we are creating called STEAMDads. You can see the premiere episode next Tuesday at 2:30pm EST. It is National STEM/STEAM Day and a perfect day to launch STEAMDads. Please go and subscribe so you don’t miss our first episode which is about Modarri Cars. We talk about Engineering, Art, and Mathematical Possibilities.

The kids saw that my Modarri cars were out so they played with them. Later on they showed me their artistic creations. Andrew worked int he medium of Toilet Paper Rolls and Eva worked in Duct Tape. She used the parts from the inside of my Netflix #StreamTeam Gift Box, the one that housed my iPad Pro and PhotoJojo Camera Lenses.

Allison and Eva had no school today so after we picked Andrew up from school we went to see the movie Trolls. Sadly the kids aren’t quite old enough for Doctor Strange. Trolls was really cute. There was a moment when I teared up, it was the music. The music is great and the movie made me laugh out loud a number of times.

Cookie Monster – The Cookie Thief

Andrew with Cookie Monster Items

After being a star of many humorous digital shorts, Cookie Monster gets his very own special. I have always been a fan of Cookie Monster. He is funny and silly and loves cookies as much as me. Maybe I will learn to wait like Cookie has for the past few years. But cookies are just so tasty.

We received a screener of “The Cookie Thief” as well as some other fun items to mix cookies and art. The package included a watercolor painting set, a Cookie Monster plush, a Cookie Monster book, a chef hat, Sesame Street stickers, and a Cookie Monster shaped cookie cutter. We’ll have some fun times during these countless snow days.

In the special Cookie Monster becomes the primary suspect when famous cookie art begins disappearing. It is up to Cookie Monster, Chris and Elmo to solve the mystery of who is stealing all of the cookie art. Along the way they are helped my Prairie Dawn and Abby Cadabby. The special ends with a bunch of shorts about art including a Bert and Ernie Adventure and more. Rachel Dratch from SNL appears as a guest star in the special as well. She is the head of security for the cookie art museum. It was a funny special and it incorporated humor, impulse control and managing emotions. Continue reading Cookie Monster – The Cookie Thief
