Family Movie Night

First I need to tell you that posting awful pictures of your home really works.  I spent HOURS in my office and I am almost ready to post "after" pictures tomorrow.  It feels SO good to have it clean again!  

We were excited to host a family movie night to watch "Cars 2" with all of the cousins last night.  
At your house, this might mean asking 5 people over.  
At our house, however, it is asking 50 people over.

My boys really got into the spirit of things by handing out tickets, making signs and being ushers.

I found cute little tickets at Hobby Lobby a while ago, perfect for a night like this.
We had every one come and get a drink in the kitchen and then Graham took their tickets on the stairs.  Lauren had her flashlight ready and escorted people to their seats.  

It sounds way more organized than it actually was.  But FUN!
I had a table with bowls of popcorn and other treats.  It was also the first time Dan's Great Nanny has ever been to our home so that was a real treat too!  

It was so much fun that we are hoping to do this with everyone once every few months.  We love it when our kids can spends time with their cute cousins!  All 20 something of them!
