This week has been the first full week back to school for both of my kids after the holiday vacation that they just had. We had a really nice time together over the week and a half that they were home from school. We did some traveling, hosted a couple of holiday parties with family and friends. Visited Manhattan one night to see the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center and saw them making preparations in Times Square for the New Years Eve celebration. We also got to spend some quality time together playing board games, reading books, doing arts and crafts, playing with new holiday toys and snuggling up on the couch to watch movies.
You may have read before in my previous blogs that we are a Netflix family and part of the Netflix #Stream Team. My family and I have been members of Netflix for as long as I can remember or at least 8 years. We were getting Netflix videos in the mail even before they started Streaming content online. When Netflix originally began streaming content online we were using our Nintendo Wii to view videos. Now we use the Roku 2, which in my opinion is much user friendly and more streamlined. We also get to give the Wii a break.
Over this past vacation we were watching allot of Holiday videos some of which we already had on DVD and some that we found on Netflix. On some of the days when it was gray and dark out we were looking for some family friendly laughs and we found them on Netflix. One of the first movies that we watched together was “Daddy Day Care” with Eddie Murphy.
I will admit this is not the first time we saw this movie. All of us snuggled up on our couch underneath some warm blankets and had some great laughs. My kids were first introduced to Eddie Murphy as the voice of Donkey from the “Shrek” movie series.
So when we first watched “Daddy Day Care” they were like is that donkey? We all had a laugh. I guess its funny to see the person behind the voice of one of your favorite animated characters.
The next day we decided to go for a more holiday themed movie and one of my husbands favorites, “A Christmas Story”. We actually have our own DVD copy of the movie but it is also available on Netflix. This movie according to my husband is an all-time classic. I thought it was a bit dry and the kids didn’t really get some of the humor in it. I did get a kick out of watching my husband getting excited about certain scenes and when he laughed out loud allot. He kept saying, “Wait, oh you got to see this part”.
Later on that evening after dinner we sat down and watched “Hoodwinked Too” on Netflix. This was the sequel to “Hoodwinked” which was one of my kids favorite animated movies. As with most movie series out there the original is usually better than the sequel or the prequel in some cases. I mean there were some funny parts but it just wasn’t the same as the original. About half way through watching it we wanted to turn it off and put on the original but we held out. It was just nice sitting on the couch together sharing some popcorn and laughs.
Now that the holidays are over we are looking forward to new movies that will be released on Netflix. On January 29th for example “The Croods” will be released. We did not see this one in the theaters so we are looking forward to watching it in the comfort of our own home sitting all bundled up on our couch.
