Let’s face it– life is busy! Between my husband working 6 days a week, my oldest immersed in homework and activities, me working on this blog and taking care of the two littlest all day (and all three of them at night)– we barely have time to breathe! But, I do make family time a priority-and make sure to take an evening out once a week to where we can put up our feet and enjoy a family movie together. This week was a super easy week to pick out what movie we were going to see because Disney’s The Pirate Fairy came out! My oldest daughter has been seeing the movie on commercials and has been asking me non-stop if she could watch it. And since we love Disney (and Tinkerbell) I gladly obliged, and went to Walmart to buy it the day it came out– April 1st! I wanted to surprise my oldest daughter with the movie, so my youngest two kiddos and I went to Walmart right after we dropped her off at school. I found the movie right as I walked into Walmart. They had a HUGE display right near the entrance. You definitely couldn’t miss it! Walmart has an exclusive Pirate Fairy Gift Set that comes with a bonus DVD, filled with fun little animated shorts featuring the characters of Pixie Hollow. We have a BLU-Ray player so we always make sure to get the Blu-Ray/DVD combo!When my oldest got home from school, I popped up some fresh popcorn and made these “Pixie” Parfaits as an extra treat during our movie watching. They were a big hit with the girls and they were a big hit with me because they are healthy. Yum! (Be sure to scroll down at the end of this post for the recipe!)Here are my girls enjoying their Pixie Parfait while watching Disney’s The Pirate Fairy. They were so mesmerized by the movie that they refused to look up and smile for a picture. I guess that’s OK– it tells me that they are really enjoying what they’re seeing!Here’s a snapshot of the movie. My family really enjoyed it and the message it brought into our living room– Never giving up and being brave. I definitely think my oldest daughter needs to hear that it’s always good to be brave, as she tends to worry a little too much about things. Confidence is key!
- Bananas, sliced
- Light Cool Whip
- Wash and prepare your fruit. Put entire container of Cool Whip into a gallon-sized Zip Loc Bag and cut the tip of one of the corners. This will be used as a piping bag.
- Layer your fruit into a cup, then pipe a layer of the Cool Whip on top. Repeat until you've reached the top of the cup, ending with a dollop of Cool Whip on the top.
- Serve immediately or chill in the refrigerator until you're ready to consume.
