Fun at the movies...sorta!

I took Gator to the movies this morning to see Shrek. I thought it'd be a great time to just have some Momma and Gator time. She was so excited to go.

We got there and bought some tickets...oh, and popcorn and a drink.

They look huge but they were just Mediums. Probably more then we needed but whatever.

So, the movie started and it was loud. The previews took forever (and by forever I mean 18 minutes!). Then the Shrek movie actually started. She was so excited and was sitting so nicely in her seat...we made it about 35 minutes before she climbed onto my lap and buried her head into my shoulder...another 10 minutes before I said, "Do you want to leave?" and her reply was, "Can I take my popcorn home?" when I told her she could she got up and practically darted out of the theatre! A bit too scary for the 3.5 year old crowd. She's been to other movies and loved it but didn't like the witches or the fact they were being mean to Shrek...better luck next time I suppose!

Oh...and that less then an hour of entertainment cost *gasp* thirty or so dollars!!! Wish she would have enjoyed it a little more and fingers crossed for no nightmares!

Aww, how cute. It's nice to have some one-on-one with the older ones! Anakin loves the movies - just saw Ironman II (that may make me a bad mom) a few weeks ago.
