The girls wanted to watch, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. My beautiful BFF Robin had gotten it for them for Christmas and Mike and I had yet to watch it. The girls, of course, had watched it eleventy billion times already. The great part was it was exactly the movie I was thinking about when I suggested movie night.
And here's why....
Spaghetti and meatball cupcakes. I realize these are hardly news, but my girls hadn't seen them before, so it was a huge deal for them. Just a little homemade buttercream, a little homemade strawberry jam and some Aero bites. Now that we're a weight watcher's household, I only decorated half a dozenish and froze the rest.
As for the movie, it was super sweet. Abby tried her hardest to keep from telling us what was coming next. I loved Flint, the main character who does in fact make it rain meatballs amongst other things and has some super cool hair. I love that Bill Hader voiced Flint. I love me some Bill Hader. You should too, he's a super funny guy. And really any movie that puts Neil Patrick Harris (love him!), James Caan and Mr. T together has to be amazing, right?
