Family Movie Night - Toy Story

Pin It now!
We had our first family movie night last Saturday and it was really, really fun! While I was setting up and making dinner Dawson colored a picture of Buzz Lightyear. Buzz is definitely his favorite.

He finished it just in time so I could add it to the table with the other decorations. :)

For dinner we had cheese bread in the shape of Woody's hat, boots and his sheriffs star.

And a Pizza Planet pizza in the shape of Buzz Lightyear's spaceship!

And for dessert we had alien cupcakes.

For decorations we put out the Toy Story DVD, a Toy Story Book, Buzz, Woody, Rex, the picture Dawson colored, our movie tickets and one of Dawson's toys.

Oh, and of course Dawson had to use his Toy Story sippy!

After dinner we got ready to watch the movie, but before we did I had to a picture of one more little detail. In the movie Andy writes his name on the bottom of Buzz and Woody's shoes, so we thought we'd do the same. Unfortunately none of Dawson's shoes have white soles and I really didn't feel like painting on the bottom of his shoe so we made it a little more temporary. I still think it's pretty cute. :)

Dawson only watched about 15-20 minutes of the movie before he wanted to get up and play which really didn't surprise us. Even though we didn't get to watch the entire movie we still had a really fun night and we're looking forward to the next one. I think we'll be watching Cars next and I've already got some fun ideas for that.

This is AMAZING!!! I hope you don't mind if I use some of your ideas...We had already planned a trip to Kohl's today!! :-D

Christina said...

Great job! Aren't movie nights addicting? Your cupcakes are adorable and I love that you "wrote" on Dawson's shoe.

Loni said...

What cute ideas, I love the cheesy bread, looks so good! Did you use cookie cutters?? I'm happy to know that Dawson only watched 15-20 minutes, not because I didn't want you to get to watch it but I think that's the longest Parker would have stayed too, makes it reassuring! :)
