Family Movie Night

Last night was our first official Davis Family Movie Night!

I've been waiting for Tre to be the right age for him to sit through an entire movie before starting movie nights with him. I've noticed recently that he's able to focus and actually watch movies, so I thought now would be a good time to start! So last night the entire family took a trip to Blockbuster!

Tre was very excited. Of course the first movie he picked out was Veggie Tales "the pirates who don't do anything" movie... but we had already seen that on TV! So we were going to get Despereaux, until we saw Bolt! TJ and I actually saw Bolt when it was in theaters, so we knew all the parts that might be too scary for Tre. So Bolt (aka, "the dog movie") is the one we picked. We have nothing over Despereaux, it's just that I didn't know what to expect... and didn't want our first movie night to be disasterous!

After bath we set everything up. Popped the popcorn, laid out a blanket and some pillows, made it as dark as possible for 6:30 pm... and had our first official movie night! Tre loved the movie! He wants to watch it again today, and probably tomorrow too! Of course Tre doesn't like popcorn (he's the pickiest eater ever!) so he had cookies instead (actually, that's not a bad trade!) Colin watched for all of five minutes before he was off running around the room. He, of course, loves popcorn AND cookies! He liked laying on the blanket, but I think he realized that if he stayed there he would've fallen asleep (and we can't have that now, can we?!)

So the first family movie night was a great success! Woo Hoo!
