Because we actually attempted movie & dinner in the grown-up livingroom. With all the kids. Best part? We fed them nachos for dinner.
Surprisingly, it went alright. We had very little spillage (we imagined spilled cups, broken chips and salsa from one wall to the other, to be honest) and the kids were pretty well behaved, considering! Here are some photos. We watched Kung Foo Panda :)
It will be a treat event, and certainly not very often (not a whole lot of nutritional value in chips, cheese and beef, you'll be surprised to hear. Shocking, I know.) but it was fun to do something out of the box with the kids. It's the kind of thing we hope they remember once they get a little older.
