Harry and Stuff

Today we went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (I used to have a crush on Ralph Fiennes until he became He-Whose-Name-Shall-Not-Be-Spoken, btw. Now he just gives me the shivers.) 

Sabrina works at the movie theater, and when Harry Potter first opened, the employees were "assigned" to different Hogwart's houses, and Sabrina was given Hufflepuff. I wasn't home to take her picture before she left for work, so I begged her to take one for me. Here she is in her self-portrait, and I think she looked quite lovely in her school uniform!


Other than the first movie of the HP series, this one was my very favorite, and I can't wait for part 2!

Recently Mike and Sophie started building a Legos kit for Hagrid's Hut… Mike took these pictures, along with about 337 others…

It's amazing what Legos comes up with. I bought a Christmas advent calendar for Mike and Sophie to start on December 1st, and I'm as excited as they are to see what's behind each little door. Here they are after putting together a little snowman last week…

They kind of remind me of the Malfoys when they get together.

Again, with the shivers.

    lol! The Malfoys?! lol! I used to have a crush on Ralph Fiennes too. 😀 I still do — I try to ignore the fact that he’s that V person. Love Sabrina in her Hufflepuff uniform — that’s fun that they did that! I’m behind on my HP movies. I almost feel like I’d rather wait till they’re all out on DVD and then have a DVD fest. I may do that.

    My son is my movie date since my hubby really doesn’t like movies much. Can you imagine?! Anyways we’re slated to go see Harry Potter later this week. I’m really looking forward to it but I haven’t finished the book yet.I had no idea there was such a thing as HP Lego.

    Great post! We’re big Potter fans here … someone told me about another series for those readers who are sad to see Potter end and need a fix … this one is about fairies though … called FABLEHAVEN – have you heard of it? I read a sample of the first book and it looks to be good!

    You are too funny! They remind you of the Malfoys? (And if they are the Malfoys, who pray tell are you!)
    We too are huge HP fans and totally enjoyed the latest installment. It makes me want to re-read the entire series yet again!
    I hope that you and yours have a fabulous holiday season!
    PS – Love Sophie’s new haircut!
