Willie Wonka
Willie Wonka
da da dat dat da da da

i can't get the song out of my head

we had a great time with the kids tonight - watching Willie Wonka (the newer version with Johnny Depp) and eating a HUGE hershey bar and some PURE dark Chocolate (that stuff is kinda GOOD for YOU) ;)

Noah didn't love the PURE dark -- though he loves the SPECIAL DARK (which i am out of) so he settled for MILK CHOCOLATE

Makenna -- well what can i say - she is her mother's daughter and she enjoyed BOTH types of chocolate ;)

We all enjoyed the movie and it was fun to hang out together -- and well - eating chocolate this LATE is always a treat for them --

Now Daddy is giving baths and then off to bed -- hopefully the sugar HIGH will wear off shortly ;)

about the movie -- it was so vivid and i loved all the colors - all i could think about is how it looks like they used the ITTY BITTY ACTIONS on the inside of the factory -- you know the part with the chocolate waterfall and candy everywhere -- it was beautiful -- the music wasn't as good as the first -- at least i didn't think so -- but then again it was one of my favorite movies as a child so i am probably just more partial to it

any way makenna liked it and she calls it WILLIE WONKA 2 -- she used to have the 1st version on dvd and played it so much (and touched it too) that it had to be thrown away cause it skipped -- i should buy her another copy -- it is a good thing we have the WIZARD of OZ on VHS cause we would have gone through a dozen dvd's by now - she loves that one too

Noah told me he was SOAKIN HOT tonight -- he was sweaty from being outside and when i giggled at his comment he proceeded to tell me how
SOAKIN' was because he was wet with sweat
and HOT was because - well he was HOT
too cute

and to close - i will quote the last line of the movie

Shawnna, what a wonderful family night you is so important for families to be together and have fun so i say 'good for you'.

On the subject of chocolate--yummy I love milk chocolate...and I crave it terribly I now keep the milk chocolate chips in my kitchen so my need can be taken care of..

Noah reminds me of Heath at that age! He is so funny.... Glad you guys had a good time on your "vacation!" Kiss the babies for their Aunt Sissy and tell them I will be thinking of them on their first day of school! Jon-Collin is in the 4th grade and I STILL cry on the way to work on the first day of school! Love you guys!

Sounds like you had an awesome family night. Those are the BEST times!!
I'm so weird--Willie Wonka freaked me out when I was a little kid (the oompa loompas seriously scared me!! LOl), so I will not see the new one. I know--I'm a wuss!!
