Despicable Me 2 Giveaway!!

have a confession to make. There are a lot of kid’s movies that my kids haven’t seen. Actually I make sure they see the classics that I grew up with (Cinderella, 101 Dalmatians, ET, Annie), but I am not one to run out to the theater for the latest animated film. There is no hard and fast reason, but I can say that with movies being expensive I am just never sure I am going to find it worth it when all is said and done.

There have been many recent movies that have been WAY above my expectations. (Muppets, Tangled and The Croods come to mind). But one I have still failed to see despite clever marketing and high recommendations is Despicable Me. And it isn’t because my kids haven’t begged and begged and begged (because they definitely have). It is because I have been straight up lazy.

Well this week we are going to rectify that situation. Because there is nothing like a sequel coming out to kick your butt into action. That and the begging. Seriously with the begging.UNIPIXHOSTING_VD_DME3D-300x250_pk_v2

    I feel the same about being lazy about taking my kids to the movies. Another beef I have is no matter what time we go to the movies 2 out of 3 of my kids end up falling asleep so I really feel that I don’t get my money’s worth. This would be so run to take them and not have to pay for it.

  31. Well if I win give them to someone else, but I had to chime in. There are so many stinko kids movies, but Despicable Me is really a great one. It’s funny, it’s clean, and it has a good moral. Love it.
