As my kids get older, family time is more precious then ever.
We are all "movie junkies" and a festive, cozy night with a great show
is one of our favorite ways to spend time together.
A fantastic "flick", superb snacks and a comfy couch are all you need.
I love to hear my kids giggle at silly scenes,
comment on amazing animation and watch them be touched by caring characters.

(that some even tossed in with their popcorn!)
Swedish Fish in honor of Fish, our family's favorite Boxtroll.
After our movie night, my kids are ready to watch it again -
they have a bet as to how many times the word cheese is said!
So have some fun with The Boxtrolls too.
The DVD and 10ct. Pop Secret Movie Theater Butter Popcorn
is available at Walmart while supplies last.
The Boxtrolls Facebook page is also full of great ideas.
