We are doing Invincible tonight.

Movie: Invincible
Activity: When Daddy gets home (Usually around 3:30) we will take the boys outside and play a nice game of football!
Dinner: We got Italian sausages, hot dogs, stuff to make nacho's (beer for us grown-ups) and for dessert- they had to get these whoopi pies (they look like elmo!) - The dessert has nothing to do with football but they really wanted them and they were cute.

I had started doing these for my two sisters a couple of months ago. About two weeks after I started them, I found this great thread! I just thought I would share some pictures from our nights. First up, Lady and the Tramp.











It was a fun night. We had chicken parm., bowtie pasta, garlic bread, and caesar salad. We have had lots more nights. Would everyone like to see more pics?

I am SO glad I found this thread! We are planning a trip for 2010 and I am going to do 1 a month. I've copied and pasted the ones I liked, now I have to go read them!

I'll be sure to come back with any additional ideas I've thought of when I do the movies, and hopefully some pictures!

Thank you so much for starting this!

Just to preface: All of these Disney Nights are being done in honor of the Disney trip we are surprising my two DSis's with in September. It will be their first time to the "world". Since we are not telling them about the trip until the weekend before, I wanted to do something to get them in the Disney spirit without spilling the beans. So that is why we started doing these magical nights!

This was our Beauty and the Beast Night.

That day, I got everything ready. Early in the afternoon I dropped off invitations to Courtney and Hannah that said:

You are cordially invited to a dinner party and the residence of Heather and Mike this evening at 7:30 PM. After dinner entertainment and "tea" will be part of our celebration. Please wear formal attire. Your driver will arrive at 7:00.

I set up a table outside on our little porch with a candle in the middle and our fancy china.



I didn't take a picture before we served the food but here is what it looked like after.



On the menu for tonight...



I went to pick up the girls and then brought them back to my house. When we walked in, DH was dressed up in a jacket and had a cloth over his shoulder. He spoke with the worst French accent I have ever heard and greeted us and sat us at our table. We had dinner (which everyone loved)...







and then tea (aka hot chocolate) , dessert, and our movie.

Spoonful-your Dsisters are LUCKY GIRLS to have a sister like you! You must be bursting with excitement about your trip!

We leave a month from Wed and I am not telling the boys until the day before. It will be just them and me and I am so excited! (but sad that DH can't go..)

I love seeing the pics that bring PrincessTigerLily's (and others)ideas to life!

a bug's life

On the Menu:
Flik's "Fried" Chicken
Francis' "Not all Ladybugs are ladies"
Heimlich's caterpillar kabobs
Slim's Crunchy leaves (chips)
Worms in Dirt Dessert

The boys made some bug crafts and we played Ants in the Pants and Leapin' Lizards.







We are doing Nemo on Friday! My nieces are staying over, so it will be lots of fun!!

I have enjoyed so much seeing your theme nights with your boys. You are so creative. We had to cancel our trip this year and my kids are so dissapointed. I am going to do some of these theme nights to get us through this year and hopefully next year we can go back. Keep posting these amazing ideas.

Originally, I was going to do the theme nights leading up to our trip. I am having so much fun that I am going to keep doing them after we come back (to alleviate the disappointment that Disney is not looming in the immediate future)

I know that PrincessTigerLily (the OP and thread's founder) does them all the time, and it seems such a good idea to keep the Disney Magic alive! Can you believe that she has an index of over 100 ideas??! Awesome! That will keep us all busy for a loooong time!

Keeping my fingers crossed that your get to plan another trip soon!!!

Jngwright, I really enjoy your theme nights. We have 24 days left and just had our 1st theme night last night. We are also staying at CBR in a Pirate room. We are very excited to try it out.

Oh, my goodness - I have gotten absolutely nothing done today!! This is the most awesome thread!! Thank you Princess Tiger Lily for starting it and to everyone for sharing their ideas, too.

Our fist Disney night of the year was last night and we were just doing Mickey pasta for dinner and then an activity of making their own plates that say "We're going to Disneyworld! (you know the ones where you draw on the white circle sheets and send it it to be made into a plastic plate?). Well, we did dinner but the plate making activity was cut short due to the time we spent in the basement dodging tornadoes!

We'll finish the plates and send them in today. And now we have a huge list of ideas for the next 8 months! Thanks again everyone.

Jngwright - I am so glad you are going to continue your nights after you get home from your trip!!1 I enjoy your pictures so much!! We already did bugs life, but your grapes and strawberry ideas were sooo cute! The pictures really bring the ideas to life!! Cute table settings too!

Next week Nemo for you (good, I'll get ideas!) Hunchback for us. Not so excited about this one, but it was the one we drew out of the bag.
Going to try crepes for dessert.

disdrmg: just a thought for a Hunchback activity... maybe you could make Hunchback character figurines like Quasi does in the movie. Instead of carving wood maybe use cleaned out upside-down yogurt containers that you could decorate with felt, styrofoam ball heads, glue on hair, etc.
How about making a jester's hat? Here is a link to make a hat with simple sewing: http://www.amtgard-wl.com/library/howtos/how2jhat1.pdf
Since I am no sewer, I personally would cut a stiff felt headband, cut some long felt triangles and glue to the inside of the headband, and then hot glue a couple of mini jingle bells to the triangle tips. Fancy? Nope. Easier? Oh yeah. How about making it "Topsy Turvy" night where everything is upside down and opposite? Maybe you can find some Mardi Gras beads on sale to wear and decorate with. Or string cord with metallic looking beads to make your own. Maybe your meal could include some crusty french bread and sparkling grape juice like the meal Frollo brings to share with Quasimodo.
How about gypsy-style steaks? http://www.bigoven.com/94579-Gypsy-S...ak-recipe.html
How about gypsy chicken? http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/rec...ken52402.shtml
For dessert try Raspberry Chocolate Gypsy Bundles: http://events.nytimes.com/recipes/10...es/recipe.html
Hope some of these will work for you!

jngwright: fabulous as always! Side note: where did you get the neat Mickey chore chart on your fridge??? MUST have one!!

Pixieflip: LOVE the "We're going to Disney!" plate idea! Super duper fun! How neat to pull that out to eat on the night before each trip! Love it! We should add that to the "Night Before Disney" theme!

Additional note: Just noticed the index is off and all goofy. I now realize that the ever-expanding index post has pushed things over, so soon I will totally retool the index so that it is actually accurate!
