Thanks to everyone. We have had several "Fun Fridays" to help us count down to our Nov. trip. We've used alot of the ideas!

My turn to post.

Tonight we are watching Sky High.

dinner - hero sandwiches.

activity - we are going to see who can "make" the biggest muscles. (I'm using childrens swimmies under clothes for dd). Also we are going to see who comes up with the best idea for how else you can be a hero (going on the GAD theme).

My turn to post too after browsing and planning with all of the wonderful ideas on here! Thanks!

We did our first family theme night last night with Space Buddies (which, by the way, I thought was pretty cute...but my expectations were low).

The menu:
Spudnick’s Hot DOGS! (regular hot dogs)
B-Dawg’s Moon Sand Pasta (a new Kraft pasta from the store that was a white cream with crumb topping)
Gravity’s Planitarian Brussel Sprouts (This was the only veggie that I could think of that looked a little like planets. But, since my family doesn't eat them normally, I doctored them quite a bit. They still didn't like them. )
Rosebud’s Space Dog Apple Sauce (Pear Apple Sauce - it's green)
Budderball’s Space Ball Ice Cream (Dippin' Dots type ice cream from Super Wal-Mart)

Beverage: Space Man juice (green Hawaiian punch with some gingerale added to "spice it up")...I guess this should have been "Space DOG juice", huh?

Activity: Search for moon rocks (crumpled aluminum foil with Hershey Kisses hidden inside) - My DS3 said this was his favorite part.

I cut out a moon and some star shapes on my Cricut and hung them from our kitchen lights over the table and placed my son's rocket ship toy in the center as a centerpiece. He was super excited when he got up from his nap and saw the table all decorated. Too cute!

This past Saturday we did a Lion King movie night. We have so much fun with these (we do movie nights every 2 weeks) and I get most of my ideas from the wonderfully creative people on this thread!!! I've been posting them on my PTR, but I finally felt brave enough to post on this one.

For The Lion King we had:

Wildebeast Steaks
Pride Rock Baked Potatoes
Forest Broccoli Trees
Rafiki's Banana Pudding (with both Nila Wafters and Animal Crackers)

For our activity we went on a Safari for Simba! We hid my DD's (20 months old) stuffed baby Simba around the house and she would go find him. I have all the pics up on my PTR if you want to check them out! Here's the link to the actual post:

Toy Story 3

Yesterday we saw Toy Story 3, not going to spoil it, but it was great! I can't remember walking out of a movie theater feeling the way I felt, so many emotions such a wonderful movie, can't wait til it comes out on Blu Ray!
Anyways, we switched it up, saw the movies FIRST @ the theater, then came home and had our dinner and game.
We had Pizza Planet Pizza, ummm Lincoln Logs (mozzarella sticks), Woody's Rootin Tootin French Fries, and Buzz's Galaxy Gatorade. Fro dessert, we had alien cupcakes





the CLAW...oooo!


LOVED LOTSO!






Then we played pin the tail on bullseye (got it from the Disney Family website) and played Toy Story Mania for Wii.






Next....Cars or Peter Pan
61 more days til We're back at the world....won't play able to Play TSM though, its going to be closed while we are there

Meet the Robinsons Movie Night

Thursday, June 10th we had a Meet the Robinsons movie night. We had a lot of fun. This used to be my DS's favorite movie 2 years ago but he hasn't watched it much since.

We had spaghetti and meatballs (no food fights with meatballs though) and I was going to make some sort of pb&j dessert but nothing really sounded all that great. So instead we had nilla wafers with peanut butter and banana sliced on top. Very good. Not so much like the movie but still very good.

Before dinner we made Lewis hats. Basically I cut yellow construction paper in half with a ragged edge and then punched holes in the ends and tied them onto our heads with yellow ribbon. Then the kids said they needed glasses so we took some old 3D glasses and punched the lenses out. Voila Lewis glasses (or close enough).




Decorations weren't much, just the Meet the Robinsons figurine set and the movie.



After dinner we played Lewis baseball. I took another piece of construction paper and drew bases. We would roll the dice and a 1 = first base, 2 = second base, 3 = third base, 4 = home run and 5 & 6 were strike outs.


(gotta love the spaghetti mustaches)

Finally movie time. I like this movie it's pretty different at times but it's a great movie all the same. At the end when he realizes his family to be is standing in front of him it always makes me tear up.



The quote at the end by Walt Disney is awesome and I love how they fade all the words out except for "Keep Moving Forward".



Now in case you were wondering what my DH does during movie nights....


Yes that's right, he sleeps. Through each one. Guess we can't all love disney as much as us.

Where did you find those Peter Pan paper plates? My friend has been looking for any kind of Peter Pan party supply for her DD's birthday party and hasn't found anything! Your plates were perfect!

I got them on ebay and they were a little more than I'd normally spend, but I couldn't find anything anywhere. I also got pink ones with Wendy and Peter Pan!
