Movie Night!

On Saturday night, we planned to have an outdoor movie night. We had a projector to play the movie on the side of the house, we had invited the cousins (and aunts, uncles, and grandparents) over to watch it with us, we had lemonade and snacks ready for everyone. It was going to be a great night. But, as with a lot of things with life, it did not turn out the way I had planned. =(
Right before everyone was supposed to come over, it got cloudy, then you could hear thunder, then it started raining. So, instead of canceling movie night, we decided to go with our alternate plan and have indoor movie night!
We set out the candy:

And Uncle Tom & Aunt Carla brought over their popcorn machine:

The kids crowded around watching it pop popcorn.

I set out glow sticks for the kids for when we turned the lights off:

And we let the kids go through the line to get their goodies!

Brigid liked her glow bracelet. =)

Waiting for the movie to start:

We put a sheet up on the wall and watched Puss In Boots.

All snuggled up on pillows and blankets watching the movie:

Even though it did not turn out quite the way I had envisioned in my head, it was still fun. The kids still got to watch a movie with yummy snacks together, and they had a good time.
Hopefully later this summer we will be able to do it again, but actually have it outside. :0)
