Christmas Countdown 2011 - Day 2

Day 2 - Family Movie Night

Friday night was the perfect opportunity to head to our local movie theater and watch the newly released "Arthur Christmas". What a super cute movie!! We had such a great time enjoying some family time together and getting in the Christmas spirit. It's a fun family movie! There were plenty of parts to giggle at...and I love hearing my kids giggle!

They were super excited to read the activity for today!

{notice the "thumbs up"}

But before heading to the movies, we needed to pack a little snack. (Shhhh...don't tell anyone at the theater we brought in outside food!)

I went through the pantry and found some snackies that sounded yummy together. I poured each of them into bowls and let the kids make their own snack mix!

*Honey Nut Chex, pretzels, chocolate chips, M & M's, peppermint flavored yogurt covered star pretzels (these are amazing, by the way!), Chocolate Chex*
Yum! The perfect blend of salty and sweet!
What made the night even better was the FREE movie tickets we have been holding onto. We were just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use them!

What a fun night!! The movie didn't start until close to 7:00, so the kids stayed up a little past their bedtime (just like last night) and Austin fell asleep on the short 20 minute drive home, but it was all worth it! Hopefully the kids will sleep in...I know I will!
