In the midst of the holiday rush, it’s nice to take some time to relax and watch a movie.  This week we picked up the new Minions © 2015 Universal Studios. All rights reserved. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you’re in for a real treat…the little henchmen are back at it again with some pretty crazy antics.  I won’t spoil the fun but let it be known that three spunky kids who never sit still were completely frozen in their seats with their eyes glued to the television while the movie was on.  It’s that good!  You can purchase the Minions movie from one of the retailers listed here!

Never, in the history of movies, has Landon ever sat through an entire movie without saying a peep.  The movie is fun, light and the perfect break from all the holiday hubbub we have going on lately.  I whipped up a fun, minions-inspired snack to enjoy during the movie and created a mini movie night for the entire family. Illumination Entertainment’s Minions movie is such a great way to spend time relaxing with friends and family!
