Dinner & A Movie with Marvel’s Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United

I really should tell you that I received the following Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack with bonus features to facilitate this family movie night from Click Communications and their client. As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions are entirely my own.I try to make Wednesday nights fun nights around here. I don't know why. Maybe it's because we made it half way through our busy week. Maybe to keep the babies pumped for the rest of the week. Or maybe because fun nights just mean I get to take a little time off and enjoy time with my family in the evening. So this week, fun night called for dinner and a movie. Bubby LOVES Super Heroes. In fact, I think he's pretty much a super hero himself. Seriously, he's always dressing up as one super hero or another. So when I heard that Marvel's Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United was available on DVD and Blu-ray on 12/3/14, I knew exactly which movie we'd be watching. And of course dinner had to fit the theme. Do I think that Hulk pizza looks just … [Read more...]

As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions are entirely my own.Bubby loves pirates and watching Jake & the Never Land Pirates on Disney Junior every weekday is a favorite pass time. I think we all know that I'm on a mission to make Bubby's life as happy as it can possibly be so when I told him we were going to have a Jake & the Never Land Pirates dinner party to celebrate the release of the Never Land Rescue on DVD, he was stoked. But you see, I planned to keep it simple...like I always do. But when he declared "This will be the best party EVER!", I had to step it up. I was still able to keep it simple but thrill them beyond belief. All you need is a little Pinterest, a printer, the DVD of course, and some simple food supplies from your local retailer of choice. No pirate party would be complete without a … [Read more...]

Holiday Movies for Kids: Mickey’s Christmas Carol PLUS a Very Merry Pooh Year

I really should let you know that I received the following DVDs with bonus features to facilitate this family movie night from Click Communications and their client. As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions expressed here are entirely my own.I'm sure I've said this time and time again, but I don't watch a lot of TV, or movies, or anything but things that pop up in this little black box. I just don't have the time I guess, or I don't care to. I'm not sure which it is, but it is what it is. Other than this time of year. I'm a sap for holiday movies. A SAP. And I could spend hours on end making my family watch them with me watching them. And even though the holiday movies I watch are always family friendly, sometimes they are movies that don't capture my children's hearts, imaginations, nor interests. And then there are those times that I find common ground. We ALL love Disney movies so when I heard that the 30th Anniversary Special Edition of Mickey's Christmas Carol and Winnie … [Read more...]

As always, all of the photos, ideas, and opinions expressed here are entirely my own.Did you miss Disney Pixar's Monsters University in theaters earlier this year? Yea, we did too and I was bummed.
