Our movie was The Princess and the Frog! We had a great time. My BFF and her family joined us. The kids didn't really watch the movie all the way through...they kept going in and out of the room to play and then watch and then play some more. It was okay. Fun was had by all, and of course I photodocumented the occasion...

The table:


"Buffet" labels for the food:


Additional decor:


The food: (Jambalaya, Homemade Chicken Nuggets, French Baguette, Fresh Fruit, "Faux" Beignets


Craft time:


And the finished craft:


And our next movie night theme will be:

We did The Princess and the Frog tonight.

Minnie in her Mardi Gras mask holding the movie



Ray flying above the table



Menu and activity list



Place setting



Frog Prince cupcakes. It's killing my OCD that one of them is missing a chocolate chip eyeball



So, here's my whoops moment. I knew gumbo took awhile. I just under estimated exactly how long was awhile. So I thought I'd make jambalaya, but realized we didn't have any rice. Two strikes. We ordered take out from a local Cajun Cafe instead


Swamp water (AKA Fresca)



Leap frog



Princess and the Frog memory

I just LOVE this thread, we have had two nights so far, Nemo and Peter Pan and had such fun, I'll post pictures soon. This week is going to be very low key as we had to unexpectedly go out of town last week and have family visiting this week. Keep posting pics I love them so much.

Chelley00 Awesome Princess and the Frog!! I love the leap frog pic, your husband looks really happy in it, I'm a sucker for dads having fun with their families, especially when it comes to Disney!!

Just found this thread and thinking 'How cool!' Wish I'd found it years ago when my DD was younger and we were going to Disney every year. But, she and I are scheduled to go again in March for UCA Nationals, without dad for the first time. This might get her excited about the Disney piece of it and not just the cheerleading part of the trip. I'm more excited for Disney and less thrilled with the thought of 1000s of cheerleaders for days. Now to troll around the thread to find a few good movie ideas. I'm thinking I need to go with her favorites - Aristocats, Mary Poppins, Monsters Inc...

A little off topic, but we thought we'd do an Olympic theme night on Friday for the opening ceremony. We're going to have an all American cookout with burgers and dogs, and some competitions around the backyard swingset. Any other suggestions?

For your Olympic Disney movie night you could watch the Goofy Short - The Olympic Champ
We love those shorts here at our place!

Our most recent night was The Great Mouse Detective. We had crumpets and the Cheddar Cheese Soup from Le Cellier, and we made a paper craft of Big Ben. It took forever to do but the kids enjoyed cutting it out and assembling it. Here is the recipe for the soup (my daughter says it's her new all time favourite soup recipe) and the link to the paper craft as well.

I thought we would do Hercules to tie in to the Olympics, but we are going out of town this weekend during the opening ceremonies. I have seen ideas on Pinterest or Family Fun for fruit tarts made in the colors of the Olympic rings, and of course Greek food is yummy!

I was planning to incorporate a Hercules night also for the Olympics, I have found lots of cute ideas on Pinterest as well!

We're doing an Olympics night on Friday, and we will be watching the Opening Ceremonies and perhaps doing a few Olympic events either in the living room or outside. We will be having English food, since the games are in London, so the plan is to have "Bangers and Mash" (hot dogs/sausages and mashed potatoes), with peas on the side, and an English Trifle for dessert. Maybe some sort of Olympic Punch for drinks, or something. DD might have a friend over, to share in the fun!

We only have a couple of weeks before our trip, so it looks like we'll have to cram in a bunch of quick movie nights!!!

I love the idea of doing Hercules to tie in the Olympics. We are stuck with Cars this weekend, but might have to do Hercules next the next weekend.
