It is a busy time of year in our house, I am sure it is in yours too. The hustle and bustle is real and in full effect. Sometimes I look at my calendar and see the days of the holidays literally melting away from us and it brings me back to reality. Makes me take a breather and plan something that makes our whole family stop, cuddle, snack and enjoy each other's company - movie night!
Even the kids sometimes need this reminder to just sit, relax, laugh and enjoy our family. So, when I walked into the house with the newly released Minions movie they were so excited! After a long day at work I decided that I would run by Target to pick up the Target exclusive Minions Metalpak Blu-ray/DVD - Deluxe that was released on 12/8! Seriously, it is the cutest case and the bonus is that this set comes with an additional 40 minutes of Target exclusive content! Awesome - we love our Minions so any extra fun is even better!
I declared that night a Minions Movie Night and quickly got to thinking about what I could make for a fun and creative movie snack after dinner. Then it hit me, put away the popcorn and create something Minions themed of course!
