Movies

We subscribed to Netflix last month, and I have to say I am really enjoying it. It is so nice to be able to throw on a movie for the kids or watch one with Andy in the evening. We bought the box for streaming it on our TV, but now they just added streaming on Wii. For around $9 a month, we are spending way less on movie rentals than we did before, and we are having more movie nights with the kids.

I also love the one DVD at a time mail service! On Sunday, Andy and I watched one of my favorites, Song of Bernadette. It is from 1943, and the woman who played Bernadette took the Oscar that year for this role (doubt that would happen now). I highly recommend you checking out this movie if you have not seen it yet.

Have you heard of 13th Day? It is the story of Fatima. I am kind of excited because it is next in our queue. It should arrive tomorrow which means we will watch it on Thursday, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima! I love that we were able to time it like that! I will post my thoughts on it after we watch it. Catholic Icing had some great ideas for the feast on Thursday. I have not been great about coming up with ideas for these special days, but this may be a first!

I preordered the 13th Day from Amazon. I really enjoyed it!

I like netflix, too, especially now that they made the streaming over the Wii! We considered canceling netflix because we're TERRIBLE about returning DVDs (which is why we signed up in the first place... late fees at the local store were killing us!) but we are getting our money's worth just over the Wii.

I have had Netflix for 3 years now and I love it! Watching online is a cool option too! :)

Thanks for the reminder about Fatima. I hope we can watch that video soon. Netflix also has the video Molokai. I enjoyed watching the first part, but had to stop because my own responsibilities called. (aka the 4 kiddos). :)
