We are back from our trip and back to our theme nights! Our latest was Lilo and Stitch. After spending the day at the pool (not the beach but we were in water) we came home and watched the movie first, it has been years since we've seen this so it was fun to watch. While watching the movie the kids did our one and only craft, some coloring pages and a Lilo and Stitch word search. I know I slacked on this one but I totally forgot about a craft! Dinner was chicken kabobs on the grill, sticky rice, noodles, a Thai salad from CPK and fruit. Dessert was pineapple cupcakes. After dinner the kids did the limbo and DD was trying to show the boys how to hula or at least how she thinks it's done























I got these cute glasses at the Dollar Tree, the kids did shots of apple juice all throughout dinner, lol

Limbo time

The only themed food we had were "magic wands"
They were mini pretzel sticks dipped in pink candy melts, then rolled in sprinkles

The craft:
Pumpkin carriage placecards (from the Disney website)

My youngest daughter went through many costume changes, she tried to reenact the entire movie as we watched it.

Thanks! I'm really glad I had the camera close enough to me to capture that moment. She was just beaming with joy while they danced.

The movie was even better than I remembered! My middle daughter was in love with it when it first came out, even had a Lilo and Stitch birthday party years ago. I'm such a pack rat, I found some of the napkins from her party. It brought back some great memories to watch the movie again!

Cars 2

Like many Disney families, ours has been looking forward to Cars 2 for a few months now so what better way to top off the movie than with a theme day? Original plan was to see the movie then have a theme dinner but after the movie we decided instead to have an early dinner at my DH's restaurant so I decided to make the following day a Cars 2 day!

But first Friday afternoon the kids and I went to the first 3D showing of the day!







This past week I have been making meals that coincide with the countries that appear in Cars 2. I know I'm that cheesy, but you don't understand how much my DS loves Cars On Monday there was Japan, DH made his version of a Tepan Edo style meal, chicken, veggies (onions, zucchini and mushrooms) sticky rice and udon noodles. Tuesday was Italy, we had spaghetti and meatballs. Wednesday was Germany, we had bratwurts on the grill. Thursday was France I made crepes with strawberries for breakfast. And for the theme day we were doing England for dinner.

But first we started out with lunch, we had peanut butter and jelly "sushi rolls". This idea I got from Lisa aka MissMickee on these boards. They also had Cars pretzels, cheese crackers and fruit cars.






Both Dh and ODS thought these looked like turtles, lol. I think they would look much better if I had red apples!

Crafts were painting Cars posters and ceramic cars banks









In between crafts they played the 2 Cars Wii games that we have.

Decorations were a poster that the kids helped make and a few of the Cars matchbox cars that DS has, I swear he has like every Cars toy that has been made so I limited the decor to just some of the small cars.







Dinner as I said was our "England meal". We had fish and chips, spinach ravioli wheels and Cars shaped mac and cheese. For dessert we had McQueen cupcakes and donut tires.







My poor DS had no idea there was spinach in those ravioli




Not my favorite cupcakes that I've made but I tried

Summer Movie Afternoon:
Finding Nemo
June 24, 2011


Can you tell my children just love to have this picture taken? Goo mad us laugh so much that I thought I would use this picture to introduce this post!

This is Ab’s favorite movie (currently). I remember when we went and saw this movie when she was about 6. Her favorite character was Dory (probably my least favorite character besides the fact that I am no Ellen fan…I found Dory to be just down right annoying). This is probably one of my least favorite movies from Disney/Pixar. Most of the characters looking back just annoyed me, Merlin just seemed whiney all the time, the school of fish with the Cheers guy’s voice was silly, the seagulls I never got. Okay, so who did I like…Crush and Squirt. The whole movie just seems chopped up and there are a lot of places where the movie just skipped where there should have been little scenes added in to make it flow better.

Activity:
We are in the mist of a heat wave and drought, and I thought this would be a perfect movie afternoon to include with a trip to the local water park to get some relief from the hot temps. We have been trying to find lots of indoor activities to keep us out of the sun, which should not be the case in the summer…but this is just not a summer to enjoy the outside.


Ab and Goo loved try to body surf the waves in the wave pool


Boo loved spending his time on the slides and in the lazy river waterfalls



Menu:

Hot Dog Squids, Sea Shell Mac & Cheese, and Ocean Water

The hotdogs have to squids as Goo corrected me…there is not an octopus in Nemo…I stand corrected!

Coral Reef Snack Mix

Way to yummy…pretzel sticks and colored goldfish crackers coated in white chocolate


Crush Dessert

Lime and Orange sherbet with fruit candy slices

Little Mermaid

Summer Movie Afternoon
Little Mermaid
June 29, 2011



Boo is missing because he is away at Boy Scout camp for the week


Today is my birthday, so I told the kids I wanted to celebrate with my favorite Disney movie…the Little Mermaid! I am not sure why Ariel is my favorite princess, she just is! I love the characters in this movie…Sebastian is a riot and Skuttle (why are Disney sea gulls so dang annoying?).


Menu:

Sebastian Sandwiches, Clam Shell Chips, & Ocean Water




(Filled with tunafish, it would not be right to use Flounder)

Sand Dollar Cookies & Beach Cups




Smashing the vanilla wafers to make sand for our sand cups


Making our sand dollar cookies


Activity:

Painted sea animals to make into magnets to hang on the refrigerator




Goo looks so serious and deep in thought


Mine is the seahorse
