Fidning Nemo night was great! We did eat Fish Sticks and mac n cheese with goldfish crackers on top to resemble Nemo in the anenome...They loved it! DD said we are in the Fish is Food, not friends club!

We watched the movie and then afterwords made Dory out of paper plates, made little finger puppets and had to find Nemo.

For dessert we made fish shaped cookies with whale/dolphin sprinkles! It was lots of fun!

Next week...Alice in Wonderland!

Great Thread

This has been a great thread. We have 61 days (who's counting, right) till our trip and I've been trying so hard to think of some ideas to make the trip seem closer... I've been planning so long, it feels like it's never going to get here, but I really think the Disney movie nights will go over well with the family.

Thanks for all the great ideas!

I'm so glad to see that the thread is still being found and that everyone is enjoying it! I am determined to come up with some fresh ideas soon, but last week I just ran a week of Asthma Camp, and I am pretty fried! I would love some suggestions for new themes to work on. Maybe a little inspiration is all it would take! A special thanks for those who write in to let us know how the theme nights went over!
Don't forget to list some suggestions for theme nights you'd like to see!

These are fantastic ideas! I'm taking my entire family to WDW for the first time in January and parties like these will help my youngest children immensely in learning about the different characters!

I thought you might like to see our Monsters, Inc. birthday party held yesterday.

My daughter-in-law-to-be made the sign.

My daughter, BrooklynnsMommy here on the boards, made the cupcakes.

Some of our guests.

Brooklynn tried to help set the table while we were all occupied.

Quite a lovely job for a two year old, huh?

My daughter made these for all the kids.

A couple of the big kids confiscated them momentarily for a picture.
