We just had our Dumbo movie night.
I focused on the Circus theme for our decorations and everything. It actually ended up being perfect timing, but I'll get to that. :) I found these really cute decorations at Target and couldn't pass them up.
I found these window clings and Ashlyn decorated our back door.
Dinner was hot dogs and macaroni and cheese (hot dogs just seemed like a good circus food). I made a cake for dessert, topped with a modeling chocolate Dumbo, and lined on the bottom with animal crackers. Now, before I post this picture... please don't laugh (or at least don't tell me you did). I can make cute cake pops and can pipe on cookies or cakes really well, but I cannot just straight up frost. Let's leave that up to Peeta Mellark, shall we? And, apparently, I can't work with modeling chocolate. But Ashlyn liked it, so it was worth it. Okay, so... just scroll past it really quickly. ;)
So, before I even started dinner, Aaron called me on his way home from work to tell me that while he was passing the mall, he saw there was a carnival set up in the parking lot! How perfect! So after dinner and the movie, we headed over there. Ashlyn's favorite was the Ferris Wheel, but there was also a Dumbo-type ride!
It was a perfect ending to the day. Now to figure out what our next movie night will be! :)
