Now that Bubbles is older, I feel confident in taking her to see movies at the theater.  She loves the experience of the big chairs and the big screen, and even if she doesn’t always catch every joke or nuance, she likes laughing along with everyone else.  And if she also gets to order some popcorn, she’s in seventh heaven.

The Cooper Family Surviving Another Day inin Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, #VeryBadDay

When I received the invite for us to attend a screening this past week for Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day I suspected that it would be a good choice for the whole family.  It is, after all, based on the children’s book of the same title.  Alexander and the Terrible Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day was a book I remember enjoying as a kid, and so I was interested to see how it would translate to the big screen.

We’ve all had one.  One of those days where nothing goes our way and all we really want to do is grab a spoon and pint of ice cream and tell the world to take a number.

Alexander has had one of those days.  It starts out with gum in his hair, and just gets worse from there.  And when he attempts to get a little sympathy from his family, he doesn’t find anyone to commiserate with him.  Soon, though, each member of Alexander’s family finds themselves struggling with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Crustless Quiche Recipe

In the movie, Alexander’s father Ben serves up a crustless quiche recipe for his family.  I think you’ll find this recipe so easy that even if you’re having a horrible day and have little time (or patience) to put dinner on the table, that you’ll be able to pull it off without much trouble.
