We have a special tradition around here that happens on Fridays. We generally either make a pizza using my favorite whole wheat honey crust recipe or order one (along with cheesy bread sticks)! Another item we have to have on hand is popcorn. Not just any popcorn. It must have butter and lots of it. Hey, it’s a special night so it is ok to indulge a little, right?
The boys, Matthew and I will kick back and watch their pick of a movie. We will usually rent something from the Internet or just watch one from our library collection. Well, we have had a real treat the past month! We are now part of the Netflix Stream Team which means the boys are watching so many more things from the comfort of mom and dad’s bed via the Roku device.
Our family had Netflix several years ago when we got rid of cable. It was an excellent solution to getting the kids shows since Matthew and I rarely watch television. I loved having instant access to many shows that Graham knew and loved as well as a few new ones. When Davis came along we had to make a few more cut backs and we are THRILLED to have Netflix here with us again!
Last week the boys picked out a classic from Netflix. We watched the newer version of Charlotte’s Web and they were glued to the TV. I as surprised that Davis (age 3) even really enjoyed it. He actually enjoyed it so much that he wanted to watch it again the next day.
The boys have definitely found a few Netflix favorites that I will be sharing with you along the way this year. I’m so excited to be a part of this and to share all that is to come!
How about you… do you do family movie nights?
