We had our Toy Story Movie night a few weekends ago. I had a good time planning this one. DH and I decided to have a little fun with the invitations, so we made them into paper airplanes:





DS6 had colored these pictures MONTHS ago and asked me to save them for when we had a Toy Story movie night:



DD13 used some of "Andy's" artwork that I printed off to create this wall:



I had every intention of borrowing some Potatohead toys from some friends to put on the table. I had even called her to make sure I could pick them up Friday afternoon...but I forgot! So my table decorations are, shall we say lacking? I did the best I could with what I had, and the kids were just fine with it.



There is a little paper Toy Story play set there that I printed off from the Disney Family Fun website, and some little green army men.

The food:









While I was cooking, the kids made "Galactic Hero" playdough:





This stuff turned out great, and they played with it all weekend. We have it in a ziploc bag, so it will keep for a while.

The last activity for the night, which DH "helped" with was a DOOZY! This thing was small and difficult. I didn't ask for any "turn around and smile" shots since everyone was pretty concentrated:



I wanted DH to be in the "finished product" shot since he ended up having to do a great bulk of the work, but he wanted to just let the girls do the picture (DS6 didn't help with this one at all):



And a close-up:



Our movie night was yet another success! We didn't draw for our next movie night theme since it will be December, and December is always packed with Christmas fesitivities and preparations. We do plan to catch quite a few of the ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas movies, and I have a couple snack and drink ideas to go with a few of them. But there will be no dinner menus, activities or full on decorations to do for those. We will pick the Disney movie nights back up at the start of the new year...which is only 3 weeks away, can you believe it!?!?

Emperor's New Groove

Any suggestions for Emperor's New Groove? We're doing that for L is for Llama week. We don't like spinach so Kronk's spinach puffs are out of the question...

Also, any Disney movie ideas for any of the following?
N - nut, nest, ?
V - volcano, vulture, vacuum, ?
Y - yak, ?
I'm open to other suggestions, but that's all I could think of since I'm trying to stay away from character names.

"You owe me a new acorn"


You could also recreate the diner scene.
Waitress: Ordering. Three pork combos, extra bacon on the side, two chili cheese samplers, a basket of liver and onion rings, a catch of the day, and a steak cut in the shape of a trout. You got all that, honey?
Kronk: Three oinkers wearing pants, plate of hot air, basket of Grandma's breakfast and change the bull to a gill, got it.

or

Yzma: Make me the special. And hold the gravy!
Kronk: Check. Pickup!
Kuzco: You know what? On second thought, make my omelette a meat pie.
Kronk: Meat pie. Check.
Yzma: Kronk! Can I order the potatoes as a side dish?
Kronk: I'll have to charge you full price.
Yzma: [annoyed] Ooh.
Kuzco: Hey, how about a side of potatoes, my buddy?
Kronk: You got it. Want cheese on those potatoes?
Yzma: Thank you, Kronk. Cheddar will be fine.
Kronk: Cheddar spuds coming up.
Kuzco: Spuds yes, cheese no.
Kronk: Hold the cheese.
Yzma: No, I want the cheese.
Kronk: Cheese it is.
Kuzco: Cheese me no "likee."
Kronk: Cheese out.
Yzma: Cheese in!
Kronk: Ah, come on. Make up your mind!
Kuzco: Okay, okay, on second thought...
Yzma, Kuzco: ...make my potatoes a salad.

This is more for the Dark Side, but since we're going to IoA for one day, we did a How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie night. We had roast beast croissants, Who-berries, and Grinch floats (lime sherbet with Sprite). You could also add Who-pudding, as that is something the Grinch pulls out of the fridge.

I love it! This is also not-so-Disney, but we just had an Elf movie night on Saturday. We had spaghetti with maple syrup, m&m's, and poptarts. I'm the only one who braved putting everything on the spaghetti though. Hubby & little dudeman just ate their sweet stuff on the side. I'm not gonna lie, it was a little strange at first. I think most of it was psychological though since those are things that shouldn't be on spaghetti. The trick is to not put too much sauce or syrup on and don't get too much since you'll probably want to just eat everything separate anyway. But it's fun to say that you tried Buddy the Elf's version of spaghetti!



We also made cookies & paper snowflakes. Here's some of Buddy's activity suggestions: "First we'll make snow angels for about two hours, then we'll go ice skating, then we'll eat a whole roll of Tollhouse Cookiedough as fast as we can, and then we'll snuggle." "I thought maybe we could make ginger bread houses, and eat cookie dough, and go ice skating, and maybe even hold hands." You could also have a snowball fight like they do in the movie.

Haha... Thanks guys! My hubby said I must be pregnant to have even wanted to try it like that! It definitely doesn't compare to normal spaghetti, but it's really not that bad once you get over the fact that it is COMPLETELY different than spaghetti. I thought it would be a lot worse and that I would be gagging the whole time or throwing it up, but I survived.

While watching The Jungle Book we ate mango, sticky rice, dragonfruit, jungle animal crackers, banana, banana candies, & gummy 'snakes'. I thought about getting prickly pear, but I couldn't find any prickly pear out here right now.

I'm amazed every time I come back to this thread. Such wonderful ideas! I would love to find more Brave ideas. We plan to start back our Disney nights with Brave after the holidays are over.
