We got to watch Despicable Me 2 this past summer when we were at the beach. It has been one of our favorite kid movies- Gru, the main character (voiced by Steve Carell), cracks me up. He is the grumpy, but underneath-it-all warm and fuzzy, evil villain. He adopts three girls and manages an army of minions that carry out his evil plans 🙂 And Despicable Me 2 adds a love interest for him- Lucy. A couple of days before the community’s trunk or treat, my kids decided they wanted to dress up as characters from the movie. We had lots of the parts on hand- we did require a stop at a second hand store for a yellow hat and a yellow shirt and a quick Walmart trip for denim fabric to make the bib of the overalls for the minions. Eric pulled off Gru like a champ and I am so thankful for a husband who is willing to do anything for our family fun!
