The 12 Days of Netflix

Well, here we are on Christmas break, and before me lies twelve days before we hit the weekend of going back to school. I would like to say I am totally prepared and am jumping off the walls with excitement about being home with all three kids for the next two weeks.

But that would only be partly true.

While I do have some fun things planned for break–including way too much sugar–we will have a lot of down time too. Cortney and I are really trying to keep the boys off their ipads and tablets, but I figure watching movies and shows together is cool, right?

RIGHT! Which is one reason we love Netflix. Here are twelve more–because twelve days of Christmas. Get it? Yeah, so anyway…

  1. We can watch it anywhere in our house. We have a roku TV in our room, a Wii downstairs. a Roku TV upstairs, and an ipad mini. Technically all four TV-watchers could be watching a different Netflix show at the same time.
  2. There are choices for all of us individually AND as a family.
  3. The League
  4. Seemingly endless episodes of Phineas and Ferb
  5. All of the Pokemon that Eddie can handle.
  6. Eddie being able to work Netflix from any device all on his own–which means he can start a show for his brother and himself at 7am allowing me to sleep a little longer.
  7. No commercials
  8. All the Christmas movies and episodes of things to fill a few afternoons. Ahem.
  9. Orange is the New Black
  10. Individual profiles so we don’t have Curious George in our favorites next to Breaking Bad.
  11. There is ALWAYS something to watch.
  12. Say what you will about screens and shows, but watching Netflix is truly something we do as a whole family. I love that.
