Queen Theatre

Movie night was awesome!!!!! Ellie earned six tokens this week to spend at the movies. She was bouncing off the wall excited. Ellie helped get the room ready by adding her little sofa, sleeping bags, pillows and bean bags. She also helped decorate the movie sign. I made movie tickets and Chris set up the concession stand. We had lots of junk food to choose from:) Chris worked the ticket booth and the concession stand. He did so great at acting like he really worked at the movies and Ellie totally got into her role and was even calling him sir. Everything including the ticket was one token. The cool thing was she had to count out her tokens and pick which items she could have and put items back if she didn't have enough tokens so we got in a little math lesson and she didn't even know it! Ellie bought her ticket, popcorn, cotton candy, a few sugar babies, a mini Butterfinger and a drink. Can we say sugar overload? Chris even announced the different movie options as in theatre one we are showing Littlest Angel etc. She had five different options to choose from and she choose Madeline. Emily did such a great job during the movie and stayed in the room the whole time. She ate dinner for the first 30 min. and crawled around and played for the rest of it. We did have a hard time keeping her out of Ellie's treats the last 10 min. or so but who can blame her:) I couldn't have asked for it to go better and can't wait to do it again. We are thinking about doing it once a month or maybe every other month. I am just so blessed to have a husband that is as dorky as I am to get excited about things like this and help to make our family nights so special!!!!!
