Pinterest fails and TLJ

How to make your own paint for kids
If you have ever scrolled through your Pinterest feed, there is a good chance you have seen this photo ^^ Last Saturday I wanted to do some painting in my bullet journal and decided, what could be more artsy than making my own paint as well?!? The recipe is ridiculously simple and I assumed it would turn out just like the photo! I was so, so wrong. It ended up being this weird cookie-dough texture, definitely NOT paint. It is amazing to me how often "easy" homemade Pinterest-y things utterly fail. ;)
 What did you think of The Last Jedi? When I first left the theatre I thought it was okay, but a bit disappointing. The more I think about it, however, the more I like it. I'm not going to be too specific here to avoid spoilers, but I liked what they did with Rey + Kylo Ren. I semi-liked what they did with Luke.
 I'm looking forward to Christmas!! We are going to wake up early and open our stockings. Then, we are going to have a breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls and open what is underneath the tree.
You are very very loved!

Majic Turkey + a very big victory

Can you spot the rainbow? ^^^
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving, friends and family! I hope you enjoyed stuffing your face with pie as much as I did. ;)

Have you ever noticed that their is no fun character for Thanksgiving? Like, for Valentines Day there's cupid, St. Patrick's Day has leprechauns, Christmas has Santa, etc. etc. My dad and I realized that on Thanksgiving Eve and came up with our own tradition.

The Magic Turkey.

He comes every Thanksgiving Eve bringing a turkey for the family. For the children he brings a package of rolls or stuffing. I had to wake up at 3:30 in the morning (to make Thanksgiving meals for the homeless, elderly, and first responders) and guess what was on the kitchen counter?!?

Gifts from the magic turkey! You may notice that "magic" is spelled wrong. My dad claims that the magic turkey just has a unique name spelling and is actually spelling it right. ;D

This week luoa didn't assign any school assignments, so I used this week to get all caught up. So. much. math. I ended up having to do a week of math yesterday. But now I can say I'm all caught up, and that is seriously a huge relief!
The other day I was making a blog comment, and I made a huge victory. I spelled definitely right on the first try! That has never happened before! So proud. :D
So I've been trying to find lots of good books to read over Christmas break (so much free time lol.), and right now I am reading Murder on the Orient Express (which is absolutely amazing!!).

Do you happen to have any book recommendations for me? and how on earth do you put a gif in a blog post? :)
