Just for the record, I should tell you that I received the following Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack with bonus features to facilitate this family movie night from Click Communications and their client. As always, all photos, ideas, and opinions are entirely my own.
Are you still looking for holiday gift ideas like me? Put the minions under your tree this Christmas because Despicable Me 2 is now available in stores on Blu-ray and DVD. This Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack will not only make your little ones (and you) laugh out loud for real for years to come, but it’s packed with all kinds of bonus features as well like 3 new mini movies, deleted scenes, and much more!
If you haven’t seen this movie yet, or the original, you are truly missing out and might not want to wait until Christmas to open this gift. The kids, B, and I just can’t watch it enough and WE, the family that lives under a rock, even went to see this one in the theater when it was released. Last night, we decided to have our weekly dinner and a movie, minion-style.
But since I’m so incredibly busy these days working and planning for the holidays, I didn’t go all out like I usually try to do. I kept it simple and you know what? The babies still loved it!
Simply serve “Minion Nuggets” (corn dog or chicken nuggets work) along with a side of fresh fruit and dipping sauce. If you’re feeling really creative, and have more time on your hands than I do, you can decorate the nuggets as minions with condiments. We’ll definitely do that one night but the babies loved these just the same.
And for dessert? BA-NA-NAAAAAA Splits of course. You know, because all little minions love bananas and who doesn’t like ice cream? A super simple dessert fixed in minutes that fits the theme and your kids will love it.
With dinner out of the way, you can just sit down and enjoy the movie:
“Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon. Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world. Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.”
Be sure to pick up your combo pack today and either save it for under the tree, or go ahead and bust it out for a fun family dinner and a movie night. I’ll let you decide. In the meantime, be sure to follow along on Facebook and Twitter to see what those hilarious little Minions are up to every day!
