Dear Holly: You Got to See Toy Story 4- Your 1st Movie in a Theater

3 years, 2 months.

Dear Holly,

I couldn’t have planned it this way, but your brother was your exact age, to the month, when he got to go see his first movie at a theater.

For him, it was The Lego Movie.

For you, it was Toy Story 4.

You had been telling Mommy and me, “I like Woody… I like that other guy too- what’s his name?”

The first Toy Story movie came out in November 1995; when I was in 9th grade.

Now, more than 23 years later, you were able to see the final Toy Story movie (…or is it?) as your first movie in a theater.

I am so proud of you. You had so much fun.

It was sweet because you chose to spend the first half of the movie in my lap, and the second half in Mommy’s.

And here I was thinking I was just going to put sitting on the end of the row in my own little world.

I am so glad we took you to see Toy Story 4 in the theater!

Love,

Daddy

Dear Jack: Keeping Your Sister from Talking During Toy Story 4

8 years, 7 months.

Dear Jack,

I have been taking you to see movies since you were the exact same age as your sister is now:

3 years, 2 months.

I admit, that is quite the major coincidence, actually!

The first movie you saw was The Lego Movie back in 2014.

This past Sunday was a big deal for our family, as it marked the first time all 4 of us went to see a movie together.

More specifically, it was your sister’s first time to ever see a movie in a theater.

You made sure during the days leading up to seeing Toy Story 4 as a family:

“Holly, in the movie theater, you can’t talk… okay?”

She definitely listed to you.

In fact, she was so quiet during the movie, she didn’t even laugh along with the rest of the audience every time something funny happened!

Love,

Daddy
