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!  Disney Pirate Fairy Display at Walmart #shopI 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! Daughter with Disney Pirate Fairy #shopWalmart 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!Fruit Pixie Parfait #shopWhen 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!)Pirate Fairy Family Night #shopHere 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!Pirate Fairy Blu Ray #shopHere’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!

  1. How fun! We haven’t seen Pirate Fairy yet, but I know my daughter is going to love it. We have Netflix and haven’t watched all of the other Tinker Bell movies that are on there yet. This one looks like fun, though.

  2. Those parfaits look delicious! You definitely know the movie is good if they won’t look away. Looks like they really enjoyed it. #client
