Is there something strange....

.... In your neighborhood?

Who ya goina call?


Friday night as I was getting ready to go to the grocery store Dave was flipping through the channels and came across Ghostbusters II. So while I was gone him and the kids watched the rest of it. When I got home the kids were waiting at the door to tell me all about the movie and how cool it was.

The first thing Emma told me about was the Green Ghost Slimer and how he was driving a bus.

The first thing Ian told me about was the Statue of Liverty (liberty) and how the ghostbusters made her walk and she broke the roof of a building.

It was so cute to hear them talk about how much they liked this movie. It also made me feel a little old considering I was Ian's age when the first one came out.

All morning on Saturday they talked about the movie and they even played together pretending to be the Ghostbusters with their Leapstar backpacks on and little plastic batons of Emma's as the guns that shot the slime out. Of course they kept asking me to put the movie on so they could watch it which of course I couldn't do because it was on TV that night.

When Sunday morning came and the kids were still talking about Ghostbusters I knew this meant I was going to have to find this movie and buy it for them. We had to go to Target to get my moms birthday present so I looked for it there but they didn't have it. Luckily Dave and I ran to Walmart after we left my moms and they had the box set for $9.00.

Of course we came home and put the first one on so the kids could see how the Ghostbusters started. Apparently they liked it just as much as the first one because as soon as I walked in the sitters door tonight they were ready to go home so they could watch it again. Instead of the first one again I out the second one in. Something tells me that tomorrow evening they will want to watch one of them yet again. For now that's ok because Ghostbusters is a heck of alto better than Noggin.

I do find it a little funny that my kids enjoy so many of the regular movies (not cartoons) that Dave and I did when we were growing up. I guess that just goes to show that they made some darn good movies back then.

now don't forget...

I have a special place in my heart for Ghostbusters and all 80s movies. They were a genre of cheese all its own...

That's sooo cute!! We are always racking our brains for good ole' movies for movie night. We don't as a rule of thumb watch cartoons unless they are feature films. I like to watch family films, like that. I was thinking the other day about Ghost Busters but was afraid the end part was too scary. Not the case??? Or did you fast forward? Just curious. They liked back to the futur a couple weeks ago but I apparently didn't realize the amount of 'potty words' in it. oops.

That is so funny that they liked it so well! I'm with you anything is better than Noggin. It's nice to be able to find a movie the whole family can enjoy too! :)
