"My skin is kind of sort of brownish pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green, but I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown, but it's silver when it's wet,
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet."

Toy Story 3 Fun!

Last week we went to see Toy Story 3 (which was absolutely great! To my surprise...) I wanted to make my son a Woody vest to wear to the theatre and it turned out so cute! He loved it! The theatre employees were pretty impressed too! :)

Most importantly, he loved it. Here he is with his cowboy hat, "cowboy boots" (we really need to get a pair of those) and his horse, Bullseye. He was pretty seriously cracking me up this day!
I found the instructions here but I actually sewed mine, instead of the recommended gluing. I had planned on having a whole day of Toy Story Celebration, including some "Pizza Planet" pizzas

and some alien cupcakes for dessert. However, as is sometimes the case, he completely misbehaved in the store and I put everything back. (Am I the only one who gets completely bummed when I can't do fun stuff because my child doesn't behave?!)

Anyway, these are such cute ideas, and I would have loved to have done them. Maybe when it comes out on video I'll have a Toy Story movie night and we can do it then!

You can get lots of ideas from Disney here! And not just Toy Story if you go to the Disney page- all the characters. Great fun!!!

  1. Oooh, my kiddos would love this! Those cupcakes are too cute! (And I do know what you mean about it being a bummer when we can't do fun things when the kids act up. It happens here, too!)

  2. Oh, I love the vest! My girls are headed to a Toy Story 3 birthday party today. I wish I could make this! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. nice! I'm bookmarking for Halloween - this could be a great idea for our Woody fan here. The little pizzas also look like something that my extremely picky eaters would devour. Thanks for sharing! -diane

  4. Toy Story movie night sounds like fun! I love the cowboy boots, too...classic.

  5. OMG - I love that vest! Everything looks so great!


  6. How cute, I miss these days. Good for you in sticking to your guns on the misbehavior. I know it's hard, hang in there,it'll pay off.

  7. Oh such a cute vest. And I am so proud of you for sticking to your guns and not giving in when he misbehaved. I know it's tempting to cave when we as Mom's look forward to something but I've had to do the same thing before. It's hard but they have to learn those lessons!
    Great job and I may have to make those cupcakes and have our own party over here. Maybe when it comes out on DVD since we already went to the theater and saw it.

  8. What a cute vest! a couple of years ago my son was Buzz lightyear for Halloween and he wanted my husband to be Woody so I made a vest for him. So fun. Those cupcakes look amazing. I'll have to check out the Disney site.

    Thanks for linking to Messy Monday. What a cute post.
