Oh my gosh, I LOVE the muppets fruit platter!!!!

Our next theme night is Aladdin...well, either Aladdin or Black Cauldron. I've never seen The Black Cauldron so I'm not exactly sure how I'd theme that. I'm hoping to get things started tomorrow and it should be happening within the next few days!

DS is obsessed with Black Cauldron, he loves it! We are going to do it eventually and have the crock pot be the cauldron

Oooh that's good! I was thinking about going to a party store to buy some sort of cauldron but then I couldn't think of anything great to put in it, but the crock pot would be great and kill two birds with one stone! Thanks for that idea, if you don't mind me using it of course!

We had a Chef Mickey's party last Saturday evening. It wasn't celebrating anything - just getting some of the cousins together for some Disney fun.

My granddaughters. (A new granddaughter will join our Disney madness in September. )



I bought plain white aprons and hats, and my daughter (Brooklynnsmommy on DIS) put the iron-on transfers on.



Listening to instructions on all the jobs that would be done.



The littlest chef.















Chef Mickey's Buffet.







Desserts were provided by Minnie's Bake Shop.



Enjoying their handiwork.



All the kids got their pictures made with Mickey.

After dinner, we went into the backyard to play 9 holes of Goofy's Garden Golf. I failed to get a picture of the sign.

Hole 1.





Every garden needs a money tree, right?





Stop and spray the pesky bugs here.



'Corny' jokes were all over the course. The kids didn't get them all, but the grown-ups got a chuckle, and there was some rolling of the eyes.









If Bella (just turned 3) couldn't make the shot, she just put in the hole/bucket/whatever.



Consulting on a crucial shot.



You can tell by the decorations this was a pro level course.



Micah was happy to throw the pumpkins around the pumpkin patch.



He tried his best to pick up the watermelon.



It was a fun evening for all of the little ones.

We did our first of, probably, 8 movie nights last night. We're leaving in 8 or 9 weeks (haven't settled on an exact date yet).

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we did the Three Caballeros. I've NEVER seen this movie. I've had it forever, (seriously, my copy is on VHS) and still never seen it. LOL! I watched it while the kids were in school so I could do a little more than just basic mexican food. I added Burrito, our *winged* pin the tail on the donkey after watching it. I was going to make some sort of Pablo penguin snack but decided we had more than enough snacks.

Dinner was mini beef tacos, chicken taquitos and a Mexican flag of green peppers, cheese and watermelon. To drink I made mock margaritas. They were gross. Not all that yummy looking stuff on Pinterst is *acutally* yummy.









I made the fans over the table out of scrapbooking paper and the little bit of runner on the table we left over from DDs 3rd Dora birthday party. I made the flowers from some tissue paper.

They may have tasted gross, but at least they looked cool. The glasses were also left overs from DDs party. I had made green jell-o in them for her birthday party... kinda wishing I'd done that again. LOL!!



And, just so you know, this is the recipe I used. Blech!

For dessert and snacks we had chips and salsa (for Dad), cookie "chips" and fruit dip "gaucamole", sombrero cookies, hot (and not-so-hot) tamales and Mexican wedding cookies. The banner is more tissue paper.









The sombrero cookies are from here.

The "chips" and "guacamole" are from here.

Mexican wedding cookies (YUM!!!) are from here.

While they watched the movie, DD and DS colored the tails for our Pin-the-Tail-on-the-(winged)-Donkey game. I picked the game up at Target and just added some scrapbooking paper wings.







Next week... Aladdin!!



Ole!!
