Movie Night with DreamWorks and a Giveaway


I mentioned back in this post, about how I should get Mother of the Year Award. I mean seriously, 3 themed parties in one weekend? It was like a miracle around here!

We had some leftover Root Beer and Cookies & Cream Ice Cream from Princess C's party, so I started by whipping up some Root Beer Floats. Then I remembered seeing these licorice straws on my friend Kristin's blog - Pinning With Purpose. So I snipped off the ends of licorice and popped them in with the floats. My kids are big on straws, so I knew they would be a hit.  The Cookies & Cream ice cream went over pretty well with the root beer - a fun variation to your normal vanilla.

While I was putting together the floats, I had a bag of popcorn going in the microwave. We normally use our air popper, but sometimes a good old microwave bag is the way to go. I was aiming for quick and easy, but fun. Once that was ready, I served it up in our new movie reel tin (now decorating our movie shelf).  And what would conclude a movie night, better than a box of Swedish Fish?

I put our snacks on my handy bed tray, and carried it down to our entertainment room (aka toy room).  Mark had the kids down there cleaning so we could enjoy our night without the mess. Once I made an appearance though, the cleaning stopped and the fun began!
Oh, would you like to know what we watched? 

Right now, until March 15th, in specially marked boxes of Big G cereal you can collect 4 DreamWorks Sampler DVD's.  We were planning on watching all 4, but some tantrums ensued, and bedtime approached faster than we anticipated so we started with a family favorite - How To Train Your Dragon - and saved the rest for later.

The Sampler DVDs contain 1-2 full spin off episodes from the popular movies How To Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, and Madagascar. Each DVD also contains a sneak peek into DreamWorks new movie The Croods - coming to theaters March 22nd.
