It definitely feels like winter now in Vancouver. This excites me to no end, because somehow cold weather equals Christmas in my mind. Even though we have a month until Santa visits, I love when it’s chilly outside, when there’s an added excuse to drink hot chocolate and when I can layer sweaters. I also love nights in, all cozy, cuddled under blankets and watching movies.
I have to say that when I do have the chance to watch a movie, I want to watch something that makes me feel good. I tend to stick with comedies and romantic comedies, and, since having kids, we end up watching a lot of animated movies. I am perfectly happy with that, because animated movies often make me laugh the hardest.
Netflix is the BEST for choosing a family-friendly movie to watch all together. They are constantly adding titles to their repertoire and there are so many available right now that I have a running list of must-sees.
Madagascar 1 and 2 are probably some of my favourite ‘kiddie’ movies. I laugh, OUT LOUD, every time I see them. Madagascar 3 was just as funny! I love the adult humour that is thrown into these movies, so subtly. Nothing offensive, but jokes that only the ‘big kids’ would understand. So good!
Mr. Popper’s Penguins in on my Netflix bucket list. I love Jim Carrey’s sense of humour and I can imagine this one being a hit with Portia who loves penguins in general!
Veggie Tales In the House is a Netflix original and this one is also on our list of ‘don’t miss’. I can’t wait to cue up all these funny films to share some laughs with our girls
