Ruby's First Movie

This past weekend, Ruby went to see her very first movie! We went to the local Movie Tavern for a special showing of Winnie the Pooh - they show a kids movie every Saturday morning at 9am and serve breakfast. Genius!!! We went with a pretty large group - Ruby (and me and Nana), the triplets (and their mommy and DD), Ella (and her mommy and GG), and Hazel (and her mommy). Ruby was SOOOOOO excited to see Winnie the Pooh! She's always loved the movies (she has been watching old VHS movies that I grew up watching) and she's had a stuffed Winnie the Pooh doll for about a year now. The week leading up to the movie, she would have serious conversations with her Pooh, telling him that we were going to see his movie soon and we were really excited. So very serious, yet highly informative. :)

In anticipation of the movie, I got her a stuffed Piglet as well. She (obviously) brought both of them to the movie. A few days after the movie, Tigger was purchased as well. You're welcome, Disney Company.

Ruby wasn't quite sure what to think when the movie theater darkened and the previews started. We had to ask them to turn the volume down because most of the kiddos were holding their hands over their ears with panicked looks on their faces. Ruby kept asking if it was all done. She was ready to get the heck outta there. But once Winnie the Pooh started, she was enthralled. I'm sure that her big stack of pancakes had nothing to do with that either.....

Addie, Jack, and Carter were adorable - they were all dressed in red (just like Winnie the Pooh) and Addie had little bees on her dress. They were all SO good throughout the movie!

Ruby and Ella getting settled in their seats. Ruby wanted to make sure that Pooh was able to adequately see his own movie.

Ready to watch the movie!

Ruby had a great time and has been asking when we can go back again! The movie was absolutely adorable - I wouldn't mind seeing it again! But next time, I think that Ruby will need an extra seat for all of the other stuffed animals that we will have purchased by then....
