Toy Story 1st One!!

So we had a first family Theme Night last week on Wed. It was Toy Story! I got a little set from the Dollar Tree that had the stationary with an LGM printed on it and it came with a sheet of stickers and three stamps with the characters. $1 can't beat it! I made alien cupcakes (on the fly! Yes I know they have no mouths..lol) I printed toy story activity books and they had Mr. Potato head activities and all kinds of cute stuff inside. We colored coloring pages and got out all of our Toy Story themed stuff. DS8 wore his Woody PJ's and DS2 wore this LGM T-shirt (he does have buzz PJ's but I can't find them at the moment!) We printed and played Pin that tail on Bullseye which was too much fun..and everyone got 100 turns. We had pizza from pizza planet and ate Macoroni. Next week will be Indiana Jones! (I know it's not Disney but at WDW so to keep both DS's happy I am going to alternate between the younger movies i.e Toy Story and older ones like pirates, indiana and star wars. Thanks for looking!!

First movie night!

Thanks to Kari-B for leading me to this thread through reading her PTR!! All of you here have inspired me and my hubby so much that we have decided to start our own movie nights until our trip. (Summer 2012, mine and my boys' first trip to WDW EVER, hubby's 2nd) Its a while away, but we are both super excited! Tonight is our first movie night and the kids have been asking aaaaaall week, "Is tonight movie night?!" Finally its here and I'm excited to say (after pouring through every page of this thread ), we are doing a movie that none of you have done! I'll try to put up some pictures tonight to show you all what we did. What movie? You'll just have to wait and see!

Truly though, thank all of you for having such WONDERFUL ideas. You sure know how to make time fly before our vacations.

This thread has been wonderful and all of the posters on here are absolutely AMAZING! We're counting down to a September/October trip and have been doing once a week movie nights to make the time go by faster.


Movie: Haunted Mansion

Decorations:
Hitchiking Ghosts
Candle sticks with Haunted Mansion tombstones
Tomb Sweet Tomb treat boxes with gummy worms and spiders

Food:
Werewolf Chicken Claws (breaded chicken breast with olives cut in half as claws)
Hot Dog Mummies (crescent roll wrapped hot dogs)
Apple Bites (quartered apples with sunflower seed teeth)

Tombstone Cupcakes (with more Haunted Mansion tombstones)

We ate by spooky candle light.

Activities:
Haunted Mansion Memory - I created seven matching cards for a memory game. They were the Ghost Host, Master Gracey, Madame Leota, The Bride, The Singing Busts, the Hitchhiking Ghosts and the Haunted Mansion sign.

Any ideas for Fox and the Hound? This was my favorite movie when I was younger. I can't wait to buy and share with my kids.

First Family Movie Night!

Sorry this took so long. Had some technical difficulties with Photobucket. Here we go! Our first family movie night we did The Sword in the Stone. Its DH's favorite Disney movie.

Our menu: -Kay's Rotisserie Chicken
-Wart's Squire Squares (diced potatoes)
-Mad Madam Mim's Monster Salad
- Arthur's Royal Crowns was supposed to be jello that i cut out with my crown cookie cutter, but it didn't set properly lol so we just called it Mim's cauldron concoction (nice save)
- Excalibur cakes (rice krispie boulder covered in fondant, topped with a snow (fondant) covered brownie
- Merlin's Moat Water (ginger ale with green food coloring)

The kids were so into the movie (they've never seen it) that we didn't get around to doing the coloring pages I had printed. Oh well, I'll add them to their activity books for the trip! Enjoy the photos!

Mickey - Mom, great movie nights! LOVE the tombstones on the cupcakes for the Haunted Mansion. I am saving that movie for October and will have to remember that idea! I'm doing Monster's Inc this weekend and looks like we found some of the same things on the internet (name tags, masks, etc.) !
