Groovey Movie Night

Last Thursday we had our first official "Groovey Movie Night!" I thought it'd be fun to get the kids all cozy and stay up late with them watching a movie and eating popcorn and Twizzlers. Brad wasn't so sold on the idea initially (we love the kids' 7:30 bedtime and our evenings alone). But we thought we'd give it a try and made it clear that if they got uppity, it would be off to bed. I took Galla to our local Redbox and she picked out Wall-E. Not my favorite movie, but the kids were great (we did put Paisley to bed at her normal time since she's not much of a movie buff yet) and we'll definitely do it again--maybe even regularly.

So Groovey Movie Night goes into my bribery bag. I like to have as much leverage as possible in those desperate situations when I'm like, "if you do X,Y, or Z, then we can have a groovey movie night!" Maybe it will help with potty training Finn. But probably not. So far even promises of getting to ride on a real tractor havn't produced much progress.Good night my little loves. This picture was actually taken a couple weeks ago when we spent the night at Mammaw's house. Brad and I saw this sweet scene when we went to check on them. They are such good friends and I love how well they play together.

Your kids play TOGETHER? I must be doing something wrong. My girls are either giggling together, which means up to no good, or punching each other's lights out. Hmmm...

What tender mommy moments! That movie night is a grand idea. I'll have to keep that one in the bag.

I love movie nites with the kids! But you have a much cooler title for it. And thank goodness for red box! Your kids are beautiful... hope we can stay in touch.
