Winnie the Pooh double feature





Decor

Didn't go out too much because I had just decorated for Christmas and didn't want to take anything down so I mainly stuck to the tabletop. And yes the napkins are for a 1 yr old b-day party but that was all the store had with Pooh on it




Dinner



Kanga - Roo pita pockets stuffed with chicken and cheese



Piglets in a blanket



Tigger tails



How cute is this honey bottle?



Dessert was a bit of a fail. My Owl cupcakes were not coming out the way they were supposed to so only one made it to the table



Activities

The kids did the usual coloring pages during the movies then played Pin the tail on the Eeyore

Snowball Express

Dinner & a Movie Night:
Snowball Express
January 29, 2012



The kids have been begging to get start doing dinner and a movie night since we got home. In fact, they asked on the plane home if we were going to continue doing movie nights (how could I resist?). I am going to scale back and just do the dinner and the movie part, unless I find a craft we just have to do. It just seemed like the craft was rushed most of the time. So here is our first on since our trip...

DH and I both remember seeing Snowball Express as a children, which did not make the boys to excited to see and "old" movie (dd was at a party), but it is movie night...so deal with it, right? I loved seeing Harry Morgan (of MASH fame) and I think I remember having a crush on Dean Jones (OMG) when I was little. In the end, I think the boys laughed the hardest of all of us...end fact they wanted to know if they could watch it again!

Menu:

Snowball Express Subs with a side of Skis



Blizzard Fruit Salad



White Out Drink

(I had planned hot chocolate, but it was just too nice outside for that.)


Snowball Cookies

Great book to help with Disney Family Nights!

I found a great book at my kid's scholastic book fair - Disney: The Little Big Book of Family Classics. It includes 101 dalmations, aladdin, alice in w, bambi, beauty and the B, Bug's Life, Cinderella, Dumbo, finding Nemo, Hercules, Jungle Book,Lady & the tramp, Lilo & Stitch, lion King, Little Mermaid, Monsters, Inc, Mulan, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Pocahontas, Sleeping Baeuty, Snow White, Toy Story and Winnie the Pooh. But it doesn't just include the stories, each title includes a Q&A page (great for a quick trivia game), a craft page, movie quote page and a recipe. It really has some cute ideas! I'm going to switch it up this year - still watch some movies, but also read some stories instead.

Love the Disney movie nights. We have done quite a few over the last few months.

Any ideas for Black Cauldron or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?

For the Black Cauldron, you could do some apples dessert for Gurgi's "munchings and crunchings"...maybe apple cobbler?
Maybe soup from a crock pot which could be the Cauldron.

Coronado Springs Theme Night

We are staying at CSR, so I made some fajitas in honor of our new home for 9 days.

Hercules

Hercules was super easy. We went to our local gyro place and ordered a "family" gyro. It was supposed to serve a family of 4. It was awesome because they box everything up separately so we could each make our own gyro. This family gyro ended up making us 8 gyros. I had to go out and buy more pita in order for everything not to go to waste!




Gyro Meat. This was lamb.


Veggies and tzatziki. There was regular lettuce on the bottom, raw onion, tomato cilantro and lime wedge.


Fresh pitas.


Baklava for dessert.

Aristocrats

I think crepes are a great idea for the Aristocrats. Our grocer sells pre-made crepes in the produce the department. They are a little hard to get used to working with, but taste just like the real deal and are a lot less frustrating than trying to make them myself.


This was a savory crepe, filled with sauteed mushrooms and swiss cheese and topped with homemade hollondaise sauce and a touch of seasoned salt.


For dessert I made a Nutella Banana Strawberry crepe. Super easy and delicious! Peanut butter and Jelly would be equally delicious!

The Rescuers

Dinner & A Movie Night
February 18, 2012
The Rescuers



With Mardi Gras season quickly coming to a close (can you believe the start of it we were finishing up the last day of our trip with dinner at Ohana at this time) I thought it would be a great night to pull out Ab's favorite movie when she as 4...The Rescuers! Would you believe that I remember seeing this movie when it came out! With the movie being set in the Bayou...why not make it a Cajun type of night!

Abita Rootbeer


Label says it is made with pure Louisiana Cane Sugar

Jambalaya with some Crusty French Bread



King Cake with Pecan and Prailine Filling


No one has found the baby yet...guess someone will tomorrow since I am not letting them eat the whole thing tonight. My goodness this was yummy!
