Family Movie Night

It was a spur of the moment decision, but tonight turned into family movie night! Toy Story was going to be on TV, and we decided to watch it.

Dylan recently watched part of Toy Story, and really liked it. To be honest, I have only watched bits and pieces of it, and I've never seen Toy Story 2. So we curled up on the couch with homemade strawberry-banana smoothies, and gave it a shot.

Grant is a movie buff and owns a huge collection of DVD's. The kids aren't quite like him yet. They can't really make it through a movie. They constantly leave the room, get sidetracked by toys, or just say they are done watching. Surprisingly, Dylan sat through the entire movie, and it even held Lexie's attention!

Lexie ended up going to bed after the first one, but we decided to let Dylan stay up late to watch the second one. Once again, he was really into it, and sat through the movie! I loved the movies, too. I guess I really was missing out. ;)

Since Dylan loved them so much, we are considering taking him to see Toy Story 3. He has not been to a movie theater yet, mainly because full-length movies don't typically hold his attention. After watching how excited he was about Toy Story and Toy Story 2, I think we're going to take him to his first movie!

It turned out to be a great night. I love when that happens!

  4. We did the same thing, but we didn't watch the second one. I'm thinking of taking Alaina to see Shrek 4, but not sure if she will sit through the whole thing or not. We shall see. Dylan is the perfect age. I'm sure he will have a blast!

  5. I love when that happens, too. I haven't seen either Toy Story, so I really appreciate your recommendation. I think it sounds perfect for my daughter. If I left it up to my husband, he'd take her to every movie available (easy "babysitting" maybe?)

  9. We love the Toy Story movies ... Griffin is so into Buzz and Woody! I think he's still to young for the theater.
