Move It, Move It #netflix #streamteam December 2014

Cough, cough, cough.

So sorry, I just hacked up a glitter hairball.

Christmas is over! Yippee!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

We most certainly did here on The Avenue.

Our Christmas presents arrived at Sky Harbor almost exactly at the stroke of midnight!

We've been on the run since their feet hit the ground, squeezing in enough memories to last until their next visit.

The other night after a full day of adventures, we all collapsed on the couch and tuned in to the Netflix new original series All Hail King Julien.

A favorite character from the Madagascar franchise, King Julien will take on the jungle's craziest adventures in the new comedy series, along with his loyal sidekicks Maurice and Mort plus a whole new cast of colorful animals.

And because Christmas movies are perfect for watching all through school break, here are a few selections featuring King Julien's buddies:

1. Merry Madagascar
2. Madly Madagascar
3. The Madagascar Penguins: A Christmas Caper

Happy Friendsgiving #Netflix #StreamTeam November 2014

Holiday season is just around the corner, but it's not the nation's favorite food holiday that has us day dreaming about mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. This month we're all about Friendsgiving, a popular take on Thanksgiving when friends come together to celebrate good food and great company.

Urban Dictionary defines Friendsgiving as the celebration of Thanksgiving dinner with your friends. This usually occurs on the Wednesday before or the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, since Thanksgiving is usually reserved for family gatherings.

But maybe your family doesn't live nearby and you're unable to travel this year. Friendsgiving might be the answer for your Thanksgiving celebration and a way for friends to get together during this special time of year.

Whether you're planning a Friendsgiving feast or sticking to your traditional Thanksgiving routine, show your kids why friends are worth being thankful for with this month's picks.

Walt Disney Presents Big Hero 6

Disclaimer: I received complimentary admission to an advance screening of Big Hero 6 to facilitate this review

I don't know about you, but I'm just about "Frozen" out. I loved the movie as much as the next person, I even watched it a few times with my boys when they were visiting last spring. But I think it's time to let it go!

Let's move on to the next greatest thing! Put away all the Anna and Elsa and bring on Baymax!

This is the perfect super hero movie for viewers that are still a bit too young for the more intense live action movies.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind “Frozen” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” comes “Big Hero 6,” an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax (voice of Scott Adsit), a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter). When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller). Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.” 

Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring breathtaking action with all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). The film hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 7, 2014. 
Rated: PG Runtime: 108 min
