I know the last picture didn't come out that clearly. Basically I wrote all of the information from here: http://www.whatsitsgalore.com/disney/stitch.html

On the front, blank, part of the index card I wrote the experiment number and name. On the other, lined side, I wrote its name, powers, weakness (if there was one), and other fun facts. There was also a picture on this side.

Today we saw Brave and had our movie night to go along with it

First off I just want to say how much we all enjoyed the movie, even my 16 yr old DS liked it!


I printed out these invites for our movie day/night for the kids





For decorations I went with a few printouts I found online, DD got a Merida doll last week and she had a horse that looks like Angus. Our craft was making family crests and I made one with my DH's family crest to use to decorate with. And of course DD made our banner as usual






While I prepared dinner the kids worked on some activity books that I found online




Dinner was tough for me, I really was going to go with something Scottish but I just couldn't find anything that would work for all of us so I went with a dinner scene I saw from a movie trailer and we had chicken drumsticks, sausage and roasted redskin potatoes and carrots.





Desserts were cupcakes and strawberry shortbread, which I was going to make homemade but because of time constraints I ended up using some store boughts ones









Crafts were making their own family crests with felt and as an activity they played with some bow and arrows that I got them. I had drawn a target on our fence with some sidewalk chalk for them but unfortunately our outside play got rained out









Over all it was a fun day!

I haven't been here in ages! I love all of the new family nights! I think we may have to start up our family nights again to get even more excited for our DLR trip in August!

Lilo and Stitch

Long overdue, but here are some pics from our Lilo and Stitch Night. We did a Luau theme. The menu was:

"Roasted" Pigs in a Blanket
Tropical Fruit Platter
Hawaiian Chicken Skewers
Coconut Rice

Dessert: Dole Whip Cupcakes (I found the recipe on Pinterest, but I had to modify it a bit due to time)

For an activity we practiced the hula. We were supposed to make skirts,but ran out of time.







Cute Pic of DD


DH and DS


DD and I taking a break from Hula dancing


We ate on beach towels



Finally, THE CUPCAKES!!


Our next night was The Princess and the Frog.

Tonight was Dumbo night at our house. DS7 was so happy to hear it was movie night again. Since DH and I were gone last weekend, we skipped a week and he really missed it. I don't know what he's going to do when we get back from our Disney trip and don't do movie nights anymore!

Clown Minnie


Table


If I see an elephant fly


Table settings


Menu and activity sheet


buffet line (we had some standard circus fair: hot dogs, popcorn, fruit, veggies, peanuts, animal crackers and cupcakes for dessert and lemon shake ups to drink)


fruit and veggie clowns


Peanuts and animal crackers


Big Top cupcakes


Activity #1, bean bag toss





Activity #2 pin the nose on the clown




This little brat was cheating. She could see and didn't tell us, and then we noticed she got a direct bullseye.



Next week is either Bugs Life, Cars or Princess and the Frog.

I'm hopping on this train, absolutely love this thread!! We are going to have our first themed day this Sunday - DS chose Finding Nemo! Our little guy is only 2 so trying to do too much in the evening would just be too much for him so the whole day or half a day it is. I think what we will do is make the crafts throughout the week during craft time and then use them to decorate for supper of Sunday, it will be the week of NEMO!!

to everyone for posting pics and ideas, you are all so creative!
