Me: "No, he follows me already."
Mags: "He does? That's thoughtful of him."
Me: "Think cute, yellow and ... bottom."
Mags: "The Minions! The Minions!"
Me: "Yep, Dave the Minion!"
Mags: "YOU ARE SO COOL! I gotta tell Tuck." (hightails it down the hall)
"TUCK, TUCK, MAMA IS FAMOUS! DAVE THE MINION FOLLOWED HER!"
Our family LOVES the minions. So much so that Mags' 6th
birthday party was all about them.
In fact, Mags often announces her arrival into a room by hollering,
"Bee-doo, bee-doo, bee-doo!"
So when Michele and I were asked to help promote a contest involving
minions ... and Twinkies ... we were all in! Check it out below!
To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Despicable Me 2, Universal Studios and Hostess are running a fun campaign right now called “Dress Up A Twinkie Like A Minion.” It's fun to make and simple to enter!
1. Download accessories to Minion-ize your Twinkie:
2. Create your Minion masterpieces.
3. Upload a picture of your adorable, edible treat and you could win a daily prize (Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray or a special offer from Hostess) or even the Grand Prize (a home theater system, a collection of 30 Blu-rays and a year’s supply of Hostess treats).The contest ends 1/5/14.
Honestly, my kids were so excited to get behind this.
And since we're anticipating our first big snowfall of the
season, this scene-tastic idea was forefront on our kids' minds!
It's beginning to look a lot like ... minions ... everywhere you go.
You think I'm kidding?
Look, Michele! We're minions!
And I gave you a few inches over me.
You're welcome. :)
Good luck, everyone, and HAVE FUN!!
