Rainey Family Cinema Night

John and Callum drove to Birmingham to pick Haley up from the airport tonight. She is flying in for her Spring Break Week. SO... the boys and I had the house all to ourselves. Once we came in from playing outside and the boys had thier baths we decided to have a Rainey Family Cinema Night. {**A small bit of history on this special occasion: For a while we were watching a movie and making a "big deal" of it every Saturday night when all the kids were here (before Callum lived with us full time). We would say different phrases for it but the kids loved it so much that is what much more to us than just Family Movie Night. One evening, we were watching some movie and Callum spoke up and decided we should call this tradition, yep, you guessed it: Rainey Family Cinema Night! Now, every Christmas morning they find a HUGE popcorn bowl, this past year's was red and I used a permanent marker to write the words Rainey Family Cinema Night on it, filled with candy and popcorn and four or five new DVDs to put in our library. I think this is one of their favorite gifts from Me and John. We still do this every Saturday night and sometimes we add a night in through the week if we can.**} Of course they wanted me to "Open the Concession Stand" and let them pick out a movie. So that is what we did. Here are the highlights:

The Rainey Concession Stand Menu/Pricelist

The candy varies from week to week but I always get some of their favorites

They come in and "order" what they want,pay for it, and then they get to go to the Living Room with it. That in itself is a treat... we don't eat or drink anywhere in the house except at the Dining Room table so they LOVE when we get to eat in the Living Room!

Our favorite Popcorn Seasonings. Mine is a mixture of butter/white cheddar. John's is Jalepeno. Callum and Kobe don't prefer to have any but will occasionally try jalepeno and white cheddar. Samuel's is white cheddar!

Tonight's Featured Film: Alvin and the Chipmunks... of course!

Waiting on the Movie to start

Still waiting...

In their comfy cozy spots on a pallet watching Alvin.
