I forgot that Avery has more half days this week. So after she finished her homework we settled down on the couch to watch the Johnny Depp version of “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” this afternoon. We had to have some chocolate while we watched it so I gave each of them a few M&Ms and some mini chocolate chop cookies.
Avery really liked this version of the movie because it was closer the book than the older version. She was happy that Violet grew larger and taller in this movie and that Veruca demanded a squirrel, not a goose. She’s excited to read the next book, “Charlie & the Great Glass Elevator” soon.
