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.
love the Lewis hats, so cute!

DD used to really like that movie, now she won't let me turn it on!
And she won't EVER watch Monsters Inc b/c she is afraid of Roz! Ugh, I love that movie!
Yet....she loves Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp

Need ideas

For our 11 week countdown I wanted to do an international theme (since there are 11 countries in EPCOT). We have multiple families going so I was thinking of having each family bring something from a different country but that is about as creative as I can get.

Any ideas from those who are more creative than me?

Oh and we are all broke cause we are saving our pennies for Disney. So all decorations/activities/etc have to be cheap

For the menu, try www.allearsnet.com. It list many recipes from the parks and resorts under the Dining tab. You can pick dishes from each country.

Pirates of the Caribbean~ Curse of the Black Pearl

Since we finally got some rain yesterday we decided to stay in and do a Disney night...last night we were 40 days out. AT first Alanna wanted Lilo and Stitch, but then suddenly decided on PoTC, which surprised me greatly b/c she won't even go on the ride in Disney, but hey...thats kids for ya. So I had a bunch of pirate party things but I thought we'd use them for Peter Pan. As I was getting things together I sent Scott and Alanna to Dollar Tree to look for a pirate hat, big mistake, Scott went there AND Party City and spent $15 on pirate things , I don't spend that much on these nights, but he said he had to go out since we were watching one of his favorite Disney movies...so here it is



Ye Olde Pirate Punch (AKA fruit punch)


Flying Dutchmen Pizza Ships


CanonBALLS






Arrrg! Pirate Gold Teeth (AKA Corn)


Curse of the Black Pearl Cookies


Treasure Hunt Game we played with Alanna, we left maps around the house til she found her treasure (Toy Story Stickers, $2 and change for her Disney bank, some pirate party favors).


My little pirate....who dressed herself today lol


haha Screech..I mean..Scott


she found the treasure


Pin the Patch on Ye Pirate


It was fun, I tried to explain to Alanna that Jack SParrow and the Mad Hatter was the same person, but in different make-up...she is having a hard time believing this hahaha!
Up next....Cars? At least thats what I think.

WS ideas

debraW76 ~ have fun with your WS night, great idea! Here's one idea: when you assign a family to a country, they also have an assignment: on a home computer or using scrapbooking supplies, each family must make a page to go along with their country. It would be fun to include facts about that country, how to say hello to the cast members in their native language, a photo of the national flag, and maybe even the recipe for the dish they bring unique to that country. Everyone can bring copies and you can bind them together for the kiddos to do that night or stash them away for the trip (restaurants, strolling around the world, car/plane ride). You could even add pages for pictures to be added later and autograph pages to make a whole memory book.
Also, you can google games from around the world to play, which can be kind of fun too. Hoping you have fun on your vacay

I am so thankful for this thread. I mentioned something about watching all of the POTC movies this past weekends and DD asked if we could have snacks that went with the movie. We had done this with Christmas movies for several weeks this past December. I said sure and then was like what the heck will I do...then I remembered that I had seen this thread. You all saved me!!!

I got some great ideas here. I hope you guys don't mind that I borrowed your ideas...LOL!





We had cannonball subs for dinner with a treasure chest cake for dessert. I hit the dollar tree for any decorations I didn't have. They had POTC puzzles so I got 2 of them and the kids had a contest...the first one to complete their puzzle got to pick the next movie theme night. DS won and picked Peter Pan! Our plan is to have a Disney family movie night every other weekend. This will help pass the time till our next trip in April...which the kids don't know about...they think our next Disney fix will be in 2012 on a cruise. DD said these movie nights could be our own Disney World.
