Friday Night Movie Nights #NetflixKids #StreamTeam

disclosure graphic 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?

friday family movie night

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?

  13. We love watching movies together. The kids love it when it’s their turn to pick.

  16. We love our Netflix subscription and depend on it daily! I love the price and show options!

  17. We do not, but we do go rent one to watch from time to time, or pick one up to surprise the kids. Those do make for fun family nights in!

  18. We don’t watch movies or TV often anymore, especially since my girls are older. Family nights were always tons of fun.

  19. My boy is only 2.5 and we just recently started to try a movie with him. I think as he gets older, we’ll make a family movie night a regular thing. We’ve bought several Disney movies to show him and we love our Netflix account!

  20. Family movie night is a big bit at our house.

  21. Family Movie Night is a weekly must for us. 99% of the time it involves Netflix as well! So many great options and so easy to access from the comfort of my couch.

  26. We don’t do too many movie nights but we do enjoy time together, usually we’ll watch old family videos or play board games.

  27. We love family movie nights! When we didn’t have cable, it was all about netflix. Now that we have an awesome cable deal (for cheaper than if we just had internet), we don’t have Netflix. We’ll pick up a redbox movie occasionally.

  28. We love movies. Movie night is often Friday nights with our netflix streamed from our PS. 🙂

  29. We do family movie nights -or afternoons on Sundays – and its one of my favorite parts of the weekend. We have Netflix, and what I love is watching movies while I work out -at least while I’m on the treadmill – it helps my work out go by so much faster!
