I think Birds and Bees is funny and a bit naughty as well

I like the fairy tales or nursery rhymes ideas as well. I'm not too picky - all of the ideas sound great. But I would agree with others that due to locations, we stay away from seasonal/holidays ideas.

Can't wait to see what we come up with!

me too... but I'm bias because my name is Jill and if we have a boy, we're naming him Jack.

Disney has such a wide variety. are we narrowing it down, or keeping it broad with room to be creative?

If we are trying to include everyone, I don't feel like "magic" and wizards and all that really includes everyone. I think religious people (speaking for myself, not trying to put words in other people's mouths!!) believe that it isn't magic that creates a new life. And speaking from a personal note, I'm just not a fan of any sci-fi stuff AT ALL, so I've never even seen Harry Potter or a single Star Wars...lol. It should be as broad and general as possible so everyone feels included.

I can say with 100% certainty that no DDC ever will have a theme that everyone likes and agrees on.

Can we cast a vote for remaining themeless?

I like Mickey and Minnie or a Disney theme or candy. I'm not a big fan of clowns so not loving the circus theme lol. There will be a poll for us to vote right?

Yes, and may I recommend a 2 or 3 poll series. Do one with all the options, then one with top 5, then one with top 2. Trust me, you don't want anymore than 2 options in the final poll.

And definitely don't expect everyone to be happy with the theme. We are a whole lot of hormonal pregnant women. People aren't going to like it. It happens. Instead of trying to come up with the most broad boring thing we can think of, lets come up with some fun things and let democracy decide.

Kalie and I didn't completely plan this all out yet, but my thoughts were to collect ideas here for a week or so. Then as long as we have 30 options or less, we will make a poll. If we have more than 30 ideas, we'll need to be a bit more creative since a poll can only have 30 options. Give everyone the option to vote for 5 of the 30 options. From there, take maybe the top 10-12 options and make a 2nd poll. Give everyone the option to vote for 3 of the 10/12 choices. Narrow it down to maybe 4-6 options and ask people to vote for 1 to narrow it down to 2 choices for the final vote.

Yes, it'll be a lot of steps, but I think that gives everyone a say in how it gets narrowed down.

And we can definitely make no theme one of the options too.

There are a lot of cute ideas here! Voting is the only option and unfortunately not everyone will be happy. I can't wait until we have a theme!

We should probably cross pirates off the list cause October is doing it

And turkey basters was just for giggles, so you can cross that one off too

I am shocking with suggesting anything myself, so I am reading through all the suggestions with interest

Haha Zombies. I'm totally getting these for my car: FredFlare.com - Zombie Family Car Stickers - Set of 9 Undead Window Decals

I love space, Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are and the Candy ideas! Harry Potter sounds amazing too.

or Narnia *_*

or Desserts in general *__*

ETA: I just noticed Superheros on the list too, that would be super awesome! If we did Disney i think it'd be really fun to do like a Disney Villain thing but i may be the only one who thinks that's cool.

I assumed the turkey basters was a joke, but hey, you never know what the group will want.
