We did a haunted mansion dinner nite, threw it together quickly. Started with a spinach soup (spinach and yogurt soup on allrecipes) ... Aka slime soup. Made the kids a neon green punch using frozen limeade, water, green koolaid powder and lemon like soda. Dinner was maggots and eyeballs ( macaroni noodles topped with meatballs and marinara sauce - use your favorite meatball recipe and put a stuffed green olive in each one so it looks like a pupil) served with a salad and garlic bread. My intention was to buy refrigerated breadsticks and shape them into either bones or fingers but my closest grocer was out. Dessert was iced pumpkin bars. I used a hand shaped cookie cutter to sprinkle pumpkin pie spice on top so it looked like ghostly handprints.

John Carter

We Just had our first of 17 Disney Movies spectacular. It was something I wanted to do to count down to Disney. We go to Disney on December 10, 2012. I thought it would be a great way to get excited about Disney for hubby and I, we have two sons one is only one month and the other 18 months. We will be doing this Disney trip a lone. It is our first trip to Disney ever and we are going during the most magical time of year…. Christmas. Okay enough about us; the movie we choose is John Carter. We have never watched this movie and when I researched what it was about I kept coming up with mars. So I made Mars related theme.
This is Barsoom Smoothie(oj,spinach,banana,green food coloring


Cosmic Salad


White Ape in basket


I also made some Mars-cakes(pancakes w/strawberry compote)
This is my Husbands Plate


This is my plate with helium eggs


Nicholas enjoying his food
&watching the movie


The movie was really good, i was not expecting that lol. This was hard because I had no idea what to cook, all i knew was guy from earth goes to mars lol.

Mulan Movie Night

Had a blast making the food for this meal.

made fried dumplings with sweet and sour sauce.
Supper easy just bought premade wonton wrappers, seasoned ground beef and pork with Asian spices.

avor, then added pork)


For dessert I made Nutella and banana wontons. I served them with vanilla bean ice cream.



Great movie. I love a girl who can be as tough as the guys lol. My favorite part of the movie. What makes me most proud is having you for a daughter. I always cry at that part lol.

We finally started our Disney Movie days thanks to all the great ideas here.

First was Ariel for my dgd's birthday:

We purchased the cake from Walmart, lunch was Sebastian sandwiches, clam shell chips and blue ocean water to drink (thanks to whoever posted this idea here). My dgd's also painted under the sea pictures on poster board with water colors.

Our movie tonight was Princess and the Frog. We switched it up by doing the meal first, then games and crafts, followed by the movie.

Our meal was Gumbo with rice, French bread, Froggy Slime to drink, and beignets for dessert!













After Dinner, the kids did coloring pages and made prince and princess crowns while we cleaned up



Then came games!!

First was "Kiss the frog"



Daddy even played!



Justice was the winner! No one got close!



Then we played "Fly Catcher" We printed out pictures of flies, then put tape on top and they had to catch them with the blow horns like frog tongues! First one to six won!



Then we had frog races. The kids had to jump the frogs down to the other end and back.



Prizes for the games were chocolate coins and beads! After games came crafts. We made Mardi Gras masks and hats for Dr. Facilier to wear to Mardi Gras









Since we go to the World soon, we are doing Disney Movie Night once a week. Next week's show will be....Little Mermaid!

We had an Animal Kingdom themed birthday party for my six year old granddaughter on Saturday. There are too many pictures to do it all over again, but if you are interested, you can see them on the link below.

Brooklynn is animal crazy, and she could spend hours at Animal Kingdom and at The Seas at Epcot. She requested the Animal Kingdom theme, and we were happy to oblige. Hope you enjoy seeing the pictures, as I love seeing all of your ideas.







The rest of the party is here:

The only small glitch in this party was that my daughter went to the hospital Friday afternoon with contractions and we stayed there until nearly two o'clock in the morning before she left! We got home at 2:20, slept until about 5:30, and then got up and got started on the house, cake, grocery shopping, decorating, and such. Needless to say, we hit the hay early Saturday night.

We did Lady and the Tramp movie night yesterday afternoon. We had a busy weekend, so it had to be a day instead of night movie, which kind of shot the whole dinner by candlelight idea

The table


Mickey and Minne being all romantic with the movie


Place setting


menu and activity sheet


candlelight


buffet line


spaghetti and meatball cupcakes


Oldest DS left his little sister a "I'm going to college, don't forget me" present of a broken wrist


We had originally planned to have them do a "push a meatball with your nose" race, but since DD can't use her arm, she couldn't get on her hands and knees, so we just had them push the paper meatball with their nose once to see how far they could get it. We made DS wear a sling on his right arm so he wouldn't have an unfair advantage


DS making a "paw print" stepping stone for our perennial garden


DD making hers

We did Dumbo night last night. I didn't take pictures because, frankly, my house is a disaster!! We are moving furniture around because we got a new entertainment center and we accumulated stuff from my mom's when she moved. Anywho, we had:

Big Top Corn Dogs
Timothy Mouse's Mac-n-cheese
Fresh Roasted Peanuts
Flyin' High Popcorn
Funfetti Brownie Pops (Pillsbury Mix-very easy and neat!)

We didn't really do an activity, but the kids were happy with the movie, and they helped with the brownie pops. 15 days til Disney World---
