Embrace the home theater experience with nostalgic movies from Universal

This post is sponsored By Universal All Access. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Our family looks forward to weekly movie nights! We love to cuddle up together on the couch with popcorn, refreshing beverages, and our favorite movie theater candies as we take a break from our busy schedules to spend time together as a family! Recently we decided to have a movie day with the kids! We started the day by watching a fun loving family movie...Trolls! Before watching the movie I made sure to create a fun at home theater experience. We had rainbow lights, comfy pillows, a rainbow banner, popcorn cups, and plenty of blankets!! Trolls has been a family favorite since we first watched it with Hudson 4 years ago and Hayes was hooked too the first time he saw it! The boys love to watch Poppy and Branch as they go on an adventure to save their troll community! I will be honest, they did not stay sitting for very long. They were dancing and jumping throughout the movie jamming out to all the amazing music!

Later that evening we had a few friends over to get nostalgic with a Universal classic...E.T.! Again I am going to be completely honest...E.T. terrified me as a child. I honestly don't even know why! I remember watching it once or twice as a kid and then never again. As soon as we decided to watch it as a group I was super excited! I wanted to see what 7 year old Christian was so scared about. As soon as our friends came over we claimed our spots on the couch snacks in hand and began to relieve our childhood with the kids watching E.T. I will say that I throughly enjoyed watching E.T. this time around. The storyline is really cute and warms your heart to see the characters build a relationship with their new extra terrestrial friend! The boys both enjoyed the movie and even asked to watch it again the next day! It was such a special experience to watch a movie from my childhood with my own children!
