CHRISTMAS • FAMILY • HOLIDAY • HOME • MOTHERHOOD
I can’t handle these pictures of B and Mio!! So cute!
Can’t believe how early it gets dark now! I feel like I always forget until winter comes and I’m like is it 10 o’clock?? Oh wait it’s 5:30! One of our favorite things to do with the long nights is MOVIE NIGHT! Cody especially loves the movies and he’s got the kids into them too. We have all been counting down the days for Disney+ and were so excited when it launched! I love being able to watch the Disney classics and they have really good series too. Mara and I are currently hooked on High School Musical: The Musical haha it’s so good ;).
But let’s talk movie night – there are tons of ways to spice up your movie night to make it feel even more magical.
- Pick a theme. Based on the movie you pick, put together treats and have the kids dress up according to the theme.
- Build a fort: Put together a blanket fort to cozy up in during the movie.
- Pretend you’re at a restaurant: When Mara and Wes are over she loves being in charge of making popcorn and drinks and the kids like to “take our orders” and serve it like a restaurant before the movie starts. 🙂
- Movie trivia: We all have classics we love to watch over and over. Pick one of your favorite classics and and then play a game of movie trivia that ties into the movie.
It has been so nice having all of the best stories I grew up with all in one place on Disney+. You really don’t realize how many childhood movies you may have forgotten about until you start scrolling through the Disney+ movie collection. Beyond the classics, they also have tons of Pixar and Marvel movies (not to mention the latest Star Wars release, The Mandalorian), so there is something for everyone in the family. The monthly subscription is less than having a large pizza delivered – so worth it! It gives you unlimited access to all your family’s favorites, old and new. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can start your free 7-day trial or subscribe here. It would be such a good family present for Christmas!
