I hope other people are still doing theme nights, I'd love to read about them, I need more ideas!

Last Tuesday we did Toy Story day! Yes a whole day devoted to Toy Story, lol. Since it was Election day my kids had off of school, we got up early and after I went and voted we headed out to pick up Toy Story 3. I think that we were the only family who had not seen it over the summer so there was much anticipation for this movie release! While I was making lunch which was Rex nuggets and Toy Story mac and cheese, the kids made their own Mr Potato Head creations to add to the decor. After lunch we watched the movie, won't give anything away in case there is anyone left that hasn't seen it but I will say I absolutely cried like a baby. After the movie we set up the Wii and played a few rounds of Toy Story Mania, then we did a couple of Toy Story puzzles I had picked up at the dollar store, not realizing they were 100 piece puzzles, I ended up doing the majority of them but the kids did help. Then it was time to go to Pizza Planet for dinner, the kids made their own pizzas and we had green alien cupcakes for dessert!

Our next family theme night was The Princess and the Frog, my MIL was in town and had never seen it so she got to join in on the fun. We started off with a craft, the kids made Mardi Gras masks and they decorated the cupcakes. Next was dinner, the menu was Mama Odie's gumbo, Ray's crabcakes, Louis's rotisserie chicken, Tiana's beignets and Naveen cupcakes. If I may say so myself the gumbo turned out excellent, I used a recipe from Paula Deen that I got off of foodnetwork.com. Next, we all settled in to watch the movie, great as always. It was a fun night, next up is Aladdin!

What about having breakfast for dinner? When Scott and Charlie couldn't find an open restaurant on Christmas Eve, Scott ended up taking his son to Denny's

Last night we had an Aladdin theme night. I didn't put as much thought into planning this one as I have previous theme nights since I've been busy helping with the planning for my kids school winter festival but we still had fun. I probably would have postponed but my kids have been looking forward to it and I didn't want to let them down The menu was kept simple, most everything was on a kabob, we had fruit and steak kabobs, even popcorn chicken kabobs! Also potataoes, corn and Abu cupcakes! I hadn't planned a craft for the kids so when they asked what our project was I had to think quick and found a coloring book that had an Aladdin section. After dinner we collected pillows from all over the house we settled in on the floor to watch the movie. It was a fun night and they kids loved the movie!

Toy Story

Well we are going to attempt the themed Disney dinner night the few days before we leave for our Disney vacation. I believe this may be a challenge for us though. I am trying to encourage my family but they are challenged

SO...I encouraged my boys to help me come up with ideas for Toy Story theme. They seemed excited and threw out some way far fetched ideas.

We FINALLY came up with Hot dogs to represent Slinky. Potato chips - Mr. Potato Head. Ham Omelet (with cheese and veges) to represent Chicken Man (Al) and Ham the Piggy Bank. We also made sugar cookies and decorated them with Bullseye . ALSO...We loved this one- Delicious Hot Shmoes!

Also watching Toy Story!

We are attempting Wall-E tomorrow night.

Aristocats

We did The Aristocats this week...

I took pictures, but it was mainly of the food... (and I dont know how to post pics on here...ha)

Menu:
Homemade French Onion Soup
French bread
Cheese and grape tray
Chocolate covered strawberries for dessert

Activity:
We painted portraits of each other, and my daughter (who is 6) gave us a ballet lesson.

Then we watched the movie! Keep the ideas coming!

Well.. A little Background info. I am taking my mom to disneyworld in March. We have gone 3 times when I was a child. I went in October with my boyfriend, but it has been a long time since she has been there. We are very excited.

So to get my mom farmilar with the characters again I found this thread and thought it was AMAZING!!! So so far we have 3 toy story parties for her to watch all 3. However the first one we didn't do anything special.

Toy Story 2 party. We had Toy Story Mac & Cheese and T Rex chicken nuggets. We ate on Toy story plates I had got at Meijers. While we waited for the food to cook we colored pictures from toy story. I got this kit at Meijers for like 3 bucks. it came with little markers and 80!! little sheets to color! Something fun and silly for us to do. So then in the living room I had set up a little table with snacks. We had toy story juice boxes & capri suns. a Woody & Buzz pez dispenser. Toy story fruit snacks and also gummi worms and milk duds. She liked the movies.

Toy Story 3 party- we had this party over at my older sisters house because she wanted to watch the movie. So we had pizza and I had printed out a sign that said 'Pizza Planet' and taped it over the pizza box!! We also had green alien cupcakes!! We didnt do an activity or anything!!


We just love the parties!! It's so fun!! Thanks for all the great ideas!
