Well yesterday we were FINALLY supposed to be doing Snow White for our movie night but they kids and I had the great idea that since it was Father's Day and we would be spending the weekend with our own dads that we would devote Friday night to my husband. So we let him pick and he chose Treasure Planet!

I had the kids make the crafts before my husband got home. My daughter did a beautiful canvas of a starry sky and my son painted a ball like the map. Our night officially began with opening presents. We gave him the crafts as well as the pirate's drink of choice, a bottle of Appleton's Jamaican Rum.


For dinner we made Alponian chowder (I meant to pick up dog bowls at the dollar store to serve it in but I totally forgot). I was trying to keep the movie nights healthy and not serve cupcakes every time but my husband told me that because we almost never make desserts that he thought that was crazy, so "Bring on the cupcakes!". I also gave the kids little chocolate gold doubloons as a snack.


Fun time was had by all! Next week I think will be Brave. Poor Snow White, will we ever get to her?
430 days!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE your movie nights! I'm showing my son your Star Wars crafts right now! He's going to love it.
Hi Lauren! So pleased! I know you have a Star Wars fan too. You should check out that craft book - it's so great and everything in it is so easy! I've ordered the same author's "DK Learn to Draw Star Wars" for my son for Christmas too.

Signing on! love your disney movie nights. I really need to start doing more of those with my nieces and nephews! BTW... your pregnancy makes me really happy! I have been a bit sad lately because me and DH are so "old" --- (people all around tend to have babies when they are in their 20s, so I am older at 31), but you give me hope! I can do this, even if I don't have a kid until mid-late 30s!! =)

I didn't have my girl until I was 30, after a heart-breaking miscarriage (at Disney) and lots of trouble during pregnancy. It was nothing like what you are going through though and we have best friends who are still struggling in exactly your situation. I know nothing I can say will help but I think having read your pre-trip that you guys will be great parents and that your time is coming. I can't wait to hear about you both taking your happy healthy little one to Disney for the first time.

Oh my goodness, I am right there with you. I am 31 as well and I've been sad and a bit anxious that I am "too old" to start having kids now. Always nice to get a little dose of reality when I start feeling that way.

Hehe, Yeah, that was our thought process too. We don't do desserts usually, so these have been fun!

We're doing Brave this weekend as well! I am so excited to see it! Are you doing an actual party this time around, or just enjoying the movie?

Enjoying your pre-trippie!
I had my youngest at 42. So it definitely can be done...gracefully? LOL
Congrats! That's the BEST surprise one can get.

I had two in my late twenties, 5 after age 31, and 1 in my 40s. You're not too old!!! [None of them have any genetic issues, for what it's worth.]
