Movie Time!

After reading a bunch of ideas on a Disney discussion board I frequent, hubby and I have decided it would be cool to have a movie theme night once in awhile... every 2 weeks or so. We kept our first theme "night" pretty simple. I already have plans to make them much more elaborate as Baby Girl gets older. We were planning on watching 101 Dalmatians since we just purchased it. And instead of a movie night, we had a movie morning on Saturday. We had chocolate chip pancakes...

...and dalmatian milk.

To make the dalmatian milk I used a pastry brush and "painted" some chocolate syrup on the inside of a clear glass (all we had at the moment were our wine glasses) and slowly pour milk into it. We ended up not watching our movie because while we were cleaning up from breakfast the power went out. Our netbook was fully charged, though, and we have a few movies on the hard drive so we went ahead and watched Up instead.

Sunday we finally got to sit and watch 101 Dalmatians. After the movie I sat down with Baby Girl to do a little activity. I had printed out a picture of one of the dalmatians, got out some circle stickers I had lying around, and I let her "Put the Spots on the Dalmatian!" It was her first time doing anything with stickers and she had SO much fun!

In a couple of weeks we are going to do a night for either The Little Mermaid or Finding Nemo. How about a poll? Comment and let me know which movie you think we should do (and you know I'll definitely be posting about it after we do it) and I'll pick whichever one has the most votes!


  1. The cookies look great and with a movie...fab. Lucky kids to anticipate The Little Mermaid.

  2. Mmm...chocolate chip pancakes! Yum! I love this idea! Family Fun Fridays (or something like that) does fun themed movie nights, too. I think when Dave gets home we're going to jump on the bandwagon and start doing stuff like this, too. And I love the way the sticker activity turned out! She did a great job!

    My vote goes to Finding Nemo. Wanna know why? You might be able to guess... Ok, I'll tell you. Because I love Ellen! *lol* Obsessed much?

  3. I love the theme night idea! I think I may need ti implement it at my house when my boy gets bigger.

  4. mmm that looks SO good! I'm going to have to try that sometime! :)

  5. Dalmatian milk? Fantastic. I NEVER would have thought of that.

    Still need votes? I say The Little Mermaid. I love both movies but The Little Mermaid is such a classic :)
