Kari- that was awesome!

We are down to our LAST family night before the trip- What should we watch? I thought about the disney DVD they sent us with all the park/resort info- but we have seen it a million times. Any ideas to make this one extra special before the trip?

If you have netflix, there are a few Disney parks shows you can watch instantly.

So since my DH is out of town I decided to do a last night Up night with the kids. And I must say although this was thrown together at the last minute, it was a big hit! Soon after arriving home from school it was time to watch the movie, I like to watch the movie before dinner because my kids go to bed pretty early and if it were watched after I don't think they'd make it. After the movie we had dinner, the menu was of course hot dogs, we also had fries and corndogs for Sam (who suddenly does not like regular hot dogs ) We drank grape soda and had balloon cupcakes for dessert. After dinner we made balloon animals which was lots of fun, my DS15 and I must have spent close to an hour making animals. That $5 I spent on the little kit was well worth it! Then we played the Find the Squirrel game (an idea I got from here) the kids loved this, they played several times after I made sure each one of them had gotten a chance to win. Their prizes were Kevin's favorite chocolate bars. It was a really fun night, out of all of the ones we've done so far this has been one of our favorites!

Food included :

"What makes the red man red?" chips & salsa
"Mr. Smee's Ham & Cheese" sandwiches
"Cod fish" Swedish Fish
"Are you chicken-(****-a-doodle-do)?"-salad sandwiches
"You're walkin' the plank" wafer cookies
"Fairy wings" (butterfly crackers) and cheese
"Never grow up" peanut butter & fluff sandwiches
"Chocolate SHIP cookies"
"Nana's blocks" (brownies)
"Michael's teddy bears" (Teddy Grahams)

Here are photos of a couple...







LOVE this one...



The decorations were FANTASTIC! Take a look....













The pirate ship was just painted cardboard. The cutouts were just that, cutouts from black posterboard. Everything looked great and I knew you guys would appreciate it!

An INCREDIBLE evening :)

Last night we had another family movie night.

It was DS's turn to pick the movie, and he picked...


The Incredibles!!




I don't know what it is with us, but I am so over picking movies that are hard to find decorations for! Next time I'm going to pick an easy one! No local stores had any Incredibles themed decor, so I had to make my own up. Although, I do think that what I came up with turned out great and it was fairly expensive too-WOOT!


More of the decor:


Notice the red, black and yellow stars hanging from the chandelier!



Dash made an appearance...




...and so did his sister, Violet (I had to make a mask for DD).



And it wouldn't be an INCREDIBLE night without a picture of their best superhero pose!




Dinner was HERO subs and Dash's FAST fries ...




...Dessert was make your own FROZONE sundaes!





[SIZE=4][COLOR=#9932cc]Had a great night and of course, enjoyed the movie!

That looks fantastic. I can't believe how great that looks. We've done something similar with a couple of the less popular stuff out there.

Does anyone have any ideas I can do for Beverly Hills Chichaua 2? My dd is begging for this movie and so I was going to get it for her for Valentines day and wanted to do a theme around it. I was thinking maybe finger foods that are small since the dogs are small -like the little smoke sausages. I have no clue what craft to do.

We are going to do Mulan tonight and have Chinese Food for dinner to celebrate the Chinese New Year. I have dragon masks the kids are going to decorate as well.

Robin Hood

My son asked if I would request the movie Robin Hood from our library since he had never seen it, but had been seeing the characters from the movie while playing a lot of our Disney games. The kids don't know that we have actually gone ahead and booked our trip for November. But this was our first official Disney movie night countdown, even if they don't know that yet.


I made the Sherwood Forest backdrop out of a large cardboard box and a green plastic tablecloth.


The menu for our meal was: Sheriff of Nottingham Stew

Sherwood Forest Salad

Robin Hood Rolls

Maid Marian Milk (yes, I know the label is mispelled. )

Hidden Coin Custard (with fake coins buried inside)



The kids both received Robin Hood hats to wear, along with a simple Robin Hood outfit.


After dinner and the movie we played a couple of games. The first was an archery shootout in Sherwood Forest. The kids threw the arrows (wooden dowels with paper feathers/flights glued to one end) through three different metal hoops hanging from the forest.



Then we had multiple coin hunts. One person would hide ten coins for each person throughout the living room. The other players had to find them and then turn them into Prince John to pay their taxes. (Ornery Prince John, wearing his crown of course, would make sure each player paid the correct amount of taxes.)

The kids also colored pictures of Robin Hood.


We had a fun night and are looking forward to our next Disney movie night!
