Can you believe that in exactly one week from today, the new Muppet movie,
The Muppets, will be in theaters? That's only seven days away!!! And my kids are
so excited. Well, they're kind of excited, 'cause for them, it's more about the
idea of someone buying them soda and popcorn and licorice, than about the actual
muppets. And why is that? It's because this movie is not really for the kids,
it's for every thirty-something adult who is insanely, if quietly, excited to
revisit (parts of) their childhood and is just taking along the kiddies because
it's weird to go to a rated G movie without small people.
My whole family is going - parents, brothers, uncles, aunts, cousins - this
is our family Thanksgiving tradition, a movie and maybe some pizza. We did it
for years, until my kids were born. It's somewhat frowned upon to bring a crying
newborn to the movies (although now that I am a seasoned mom, I know that the
insanely loud movie would have made the kid stop crying), but now that the kids
are a drop older, Muppets, here we come!
It's been so long since Josh or I have been to a movie that I was quite
shocked to learn that most everybody - except all those moms, who like me, haven't left the house in years - buy their tickets online. It's like buying an airline ticket, also something I have not done in years.
Anyway, in celebration of this momentous occasion, we will be making Kermit
Cupcakes to eat at our happily-turkey-free-Thanksgiving-feast. Yup, you
heard me right! Cupcakes that look (hopefully) like Kermit. So get ready,
because that's the plan for this Sunday. Check back to see the fun!
Oh, and just as an aside, have you seen the trailer? Fu-nnny. Apparently Fozzy has shoes that fart (sorry, Aunt Cathy, I mean, pass gas). A word to the wise - make sure your kids go to the bathroom before the movie starts. I don't want to have to run back to the van for the emergency underwear when they start laughing so hard they can't hold it in. Good tip, Uncle Josh.
Don't be shy! If you like what you see, leave a comment!
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
