Ok the game of the night was ballon relay! Each person had one minute to run from the front door to the back door where the ballons were and sit on them and bust them. So at start you are at the front door, when we said go you had to run to the backdoor, sit and bust a ballon, jump up and run back to the front door, touch it then head back to the back door, sit & bust a ballon. It was so much fun and a great way to get some physical activity in after eating all that food
First up was DD10

Next up was DD19

Lastly was...ME

My DD1 was scared of the ballon popping noise but after the party was over and I was cleaning up, look what I saw...

Time to pick a cupcake and watch the movie

DD10 chose the number 5 and DD1 didnt want one (so I thought). During the movie I went in the diningroom to get the number 1 and it was gone. I'm kind of confused so I look for DD1. Here he is..
BUSTED Later Im cleaning and decide to eat the 0 (zero) and again, its gone and...

Up next...Brother Bear

Best movies for 2yo?

What movies would you suggest for doing with a 2 yr old? Plan for Disney when he is 2.5. He's not a huge TV watcher so wondering what others found kept toddlers attention, while not scaring them. My older one would watch TV all day if I had let him, but its been a long time and a lot more movies are out.
Thanks!

There have been a few in the last couple months. The first page needs to be updated BADLY. I would happily volunteer but I've tried contacting the OP and never got a reply...

I would suggest the classics. Not sure they would keep his attention but they're a bit more simpler than something like Wreck It Ralph.

I would look at the Pixar movies. Maybe start with Toy Story or Cars.

I can't figure out how to post pictures, haha. (anyone volunteer to pm and tell me how lol) So I'll just tell about our Disney nights so far. They have been wonderful! Everyone has enjoyed them thus far.
3/10 we did Lady and the Tramp for our first night. We had Tony’s Spaghetti and Meats-a-balls, Jock' hidden bones (bone shaped breadsticks), Darling's cupcakes (decorated like spaghetti), Jim Dear's wine (Welch's sparkling grape juice), Lady's Italian Salad. It was really nice out that day and DD4 wanted to practice tball so we actually never got to the movie. We had a ball none the less!
3/17- Princess and the Frog - Mama Odie's Magical Gumbo (my first time ever making it! and the picky BF even loved it! double score!) Tiana's Man-Catching Beignets, Lily Pads (kiwi sliced), Tastes like Chicken Frog Legs (chicken tenders), New Orleans King Cake (two things in one dinner I had never made and they both turned out!) and Swamp Water (punch). We also made Mardi Gras masks.
If I would have thought about it early enough, I would have done Brave on the 3/17 cause of St Patrick's Day. But when I started making plans was trying to not buy anything extra and just use what we had, but once I started thinking about it we need to buy Brave anyways. Oh Well, we'll buy it soon and have it another night.
This Sunday we are doing Up, and the next week we aren't having one due to Easter.

Catching up!

We've been busy with dance competitions and other spring activities so I am behind on posting. We have done three movie nights that I haven't posted!

Princess and the Frog:
We had Ray's Red Beans and Rice, Tiana's Black Eyed Peas, Cajun Cornbread, Mama Odie's Swamp Juice (Green Hawaiian Punch), and Mardi Gras King Cake (since we had this one the week of Mardi Gras). I decorated with Mardi Gras colored balloons, table cloth, masks, and beads. The girls decorated masks while I put up the other decorations. We played some jazz music and danced. And, since I am a history teacher, I gave the girls a little history lesson on New Orleans and the origins of some of its culture. We are staying at Port Orleans Resort so we explored pictures of the resort after the movie.

Dumbo:
This one was very simple. It was just the three of us girls because DH had a late meeting. We had Big Top Pizza, Circus Caesar Salad, Timothy's Tidbits (fruits and veggies with different dips), and Animal Crackers. We used a red tablecover and blue plates and the girls colored Dumbo pictures that we put up in the dining room. While I cleaned up, my oldest laid down a strip of zebra duct tape in the living room and we all 'walked the tightrope' before snuggling up to watch the movie.

Beauty and the Beast:
This marked 100 days before we leave for Disney and its also my 9 year old's favorite movie so we tried to make this one a little bigger. The menu was a little fancier:Beast's Beef Burgundy, Mrs. Pott’s Potatoes, Lumiere’s French Bread, Cogsworth’s Asparagus Swords, Belle's Rose Shortcakes, and Rose Punch. We decorated the dining room in blue and yellow and I used my good china and crystal (with only minor distress that it would be destroyed). The girls made tissue paper roses that we used as a centerpiece and I had bought red and yellow tulips (roses were unavailable and too expensive) to put in a crystal vase on the sideboard. The girls favorite part of the night was the Marshmallow Fight (because Belle and Beast have a snowball fight): I gave everyone a bag of mini marshmallows and taped my husband's bag to the door with a note that said "We are heavily armed. This bag is yours. Prepare for an ambush." When he came in we were all hiding in different spots and had quite a good time pelting him with marshmallows. He did a pretty good job of getting us too though! After dinner it was movie time and I surprised the girls with their princess costumes: Belle (of course) for my oldest and Snow White for the youngest!

Tonight is Alice in Wonderland!
