This week's movie was Lady and the Tramp! The kids have never seen it and I haven't seen it in such a long time so it was a great night! We started the afternoon off with crafts, the kids painted wooden dog plaques and ceramic dogs. They also painted my kitchen table but that wasn't planned, lol. After crafts the kids munched on mozzarella sticks and caesar salad while I finished up with dinner. Dinner was eggplant parmesan (I made this last night so I could easily heat it up tonight) and spaghetti and meatballs. We also had breadsticks that were supposed to look like bones although only a few came out right, lol. Dessert was spaghetti and meatball cupcakes and tiramisu that I had my DH bring me from his restaurant. After dinner we all got in our pj's, the kids got their sleeping bags and blankets and we settled in the family room to watch the movie.





Craft time


















I don't usually condone this kind of behavior at the dinner table but it was Lady and the Tramp night after all!







The kids invited a few friends to watch the movie with us!

We had Bella's two year old birthday party this month. She was very happy with her 'gawgie pahty'. (Toddler speak for doggie party. )



The cake.



The food.





The photo op.





The goodie bags.



The craft.







Doggie obstacle course.

They jumped over, under, around, and through, barked at a snake (rubber, I promise), caught a fish in the pond, and ran a raccoon up the tree. They finished by getting a rice krispy dog bone out of the bowl.













The bones.



The birthday girl giving out the party bags.



We had a good time, and it was a fun and simple party - just the family (all the little cousins) and one family friend.

Dinner & a Movie Night...Mulan

Dinner & a Movie Night
Mulan
April 16, 2011



Mulan always makes me laugh at the voices… Donny Osmond and Eddie Murphy in a Chinese roles?

Menu: Chinese Take Out (from our favorite Chinese restaurant) and Wanton Banana Splits

Activity: Chinese Lanterns (after Goo saw another movie night post he wanted to know why we were not making crafts…guess I now have to some up with a craft too) and looking at pictures of China in Epcot


Making Chinese Lanterns



Finished Lanterns (good reason to dust the ceiling fan)



Chinese Take Out (lots of yummy leftovers for lunches this week)



Making Wantons
*Each one was filled with chocolate chips and either a piece of pineapple, strawberry, or banana…





Wanton Banana Split
* I modified the dessert from Yak & Yeti since I could not find the recipe but found one for strawberry chocolate wontons and came up with this idea…scoop of vanilla ice cream, whip cream, chopped bananas-strawberries-pineapple, and wantons

Movie Night #3!! Lilo & Stitich! I heart Lilo & Stitch!! I really, really do! Our movie night was so fun (shocking, I know ).

On the menu....



I wanted a palm tree for our centerpiece, but rather than spending $5+ on a party store, throw away one, we MADE one! Using my little one's "palms".



I posted a tutorial on how to make it on my blog. http://purplepatchparties.blogspot.c...-tutorial.html

This movie is before my kid's time so we don't have one single Lilo or Stitch toy. So, I printed some clipart and make "standys" out of them. lol

For appetizers we had fruit and Pudge's peanut butter sushi.




I put a tutorial for the sushi on my blog too. http://purplepatchparties.blogspot.c...-tutorial.html

I plan to add jelly and make them for lunch today. Funny how kids will eat anything when you make it "fun" huh?

For dinner we had Stitch's Sweet & Sour Chicken Kebobs and Pleakley's Pilaf.

To drink we had Jumba Juice.


And for dessert, we had OMG Lilo Lava Cakes. OMG. They were SO yummy! OMG! I got the recipe on the Pioneer Woman's website. http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kit...hocolate-cake/ They were DELICIOUS!


Besides the "palm" tree, we also made grass skirts out crepe paper and played with Cobra Bubbles.




For movie snacks we had goldfish crackers, swedish fish, tropical dried fruit and homemade coconut macaroons.




Our next movie night will be Toy Story. Only 4 weeks from today until we leave!!!!! I can't believe how fast these last 3 weeks have FLOWN by, these movie nights are definitely helping!!

The parties and pics posted lately have been AWESOME.

April is Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one) month. None of us have seen any of the movies, so I'm looking forward to it.

But I've got to get to it -- I'm running out of April!

I'll have to do some research for some ideas.

We had an impromptu theme night last night. The kids are on spring break this week and I've been trying to keep them busy everyday with things. So this morning I decided to do a theme night, I had already gotten The Jungle Book from Netflix so it was easy to decide what movie to do! Decor was a challenge, I didn't feel like running around to the stores with the kids so I went with what I had around, The Lion King decor made a second appearance, lol. I printed a Jungle Book game off of the computer for the kids to play and they made King Louie crowns and colored coloring pages as crafts. We started off the night with the crafts and played a few rounds of the game. While I finished up dinner the kids played Disney's Sing It on Wii and sang The Jungle Book songs. Dinner was roast beef, roasted potatoes, asparagus and caesar salad, no special meal planned since I decided to do this last minute. Dessert was Baloo cupcakes! Once again after dinner we all got in our pj's and settled in to watch the movie, even big brother Christian who was totally not feeling well, stayed for the movie to make his brothers and sister happy

Dinner & a Movie Night: Beauty & the Beast (April 23, 2011)

Dinner & a Movie Night
Beauty & the Beast
April 23, 2011




This probably in my top 5 of Disney movies, just because it brings back a happy memory. DH took me to see in while we were dating, I was stunned that a guy would go to a Disney movie (let alone a Princess movie)…guess he was trying to score some major points with me (guess it worked because I married him). I am not sure that 18 years later (has it been that long) he would do it today!

Activities: We started out the day with a trip to library to return some books and pick out some more. This is a weekly trip for us, like Belle our family loves books. Ab goes through about a book a day! We made it for story time, but I forgot my camera! The head children’s librarian, Mr. Pat, is our favorite. It is always a pleasure to listen to him read or story tell. We returned home we painted mugs, referencing Chip from the movie. I had planned to take the kids to the local ceramic store to paint, but yesterday we found these great mug kits while at Michael’s…$6 for all 3 kits (lots cheaper than the ceramic store.) We did things a little different and watched the movie in the afternoon…it was cool today and not a great day to be outside, plus we have Easter Vigil mass tonight and I wanted to get the movie in.

Making Mugs



Finished Mugs



Dinner: Chicken Cordon Belle, Enchanted Forest Trees (Broccoli), French Bread, and Herb Rice…for dessert Enchanted Rose Strawberry Shortcakes

Yesterday we combined Easter with Pirates of the Carribean:Curse of the Black Pearl (? I think that's what it's called)

Anyway, it made for an interesting combination.

Our menu:
Captain Jack's Jax (a brand of cheese doodles)
Cannon-ball Subs (turkey meatball subs)
Fresh Tropical Fruit salad
and Rootbear

For dessert - we were going to do cupcakes, my DD16 asked if I could find candies they could use to make a butt on the top of the cupcakes. I said, "a butt?" and she said - "you know a pirate's booty"....

We ended up doing something not pirate related at all in the end - my husband made strawberry shortcake.
