we are quite the Harry Potter fans here in the Knudsen home.
i'm sure i've mentioned once or a 730 times
that the older girls have read the series numerous times.
crazy amounts of times.
dan & i read the series a year or so ago
& LOVED them.
i know there's a little controversy over the books
& there are those who don't understand all the hoopla
the entire good vs evil theme,
the amazing way in which each story weaves back & forth
between the others,
the jaw dropping creativity,
the phenomenal characters,
has left me to declare The Harry Potter series
my most favorite series ever.
so needless to say
both savannah & madison
were not going to miss the midnight premiere of the final movie
& to understand the true
indepth loyalty these girls have for the movie
find it no surprise that bailey flew in from
to attend the movie with savannah.
yes, i was the snoozer mom who forbid smk from ponying up cash for a
"flight to oxford mississippi just for a movie for crying out loud"
yes, that was me.
bailey's mom=mom of the year.
here they are in all their glory.
in fact, if i truly felt creative, i'd come up with one of those
snacks for movie=$$$
memory that will last a lifetime=priceless
this image is short a few of our copies
but you get the general idea...
last month savannah & bailey attended the one year anniversary
of the opening of Harry Potter world.
she brought us home a set of Hogwarts tumblers!
so of course,
all drinks were drunk from the tumblers yesterday.
madison had her buddy over
& they made t-shirts
painted each others faces
& headed out with another mom of the year
who volunteered to take them.
honestly, i took the girls to see the midnight release of Twilight.
i think it took me days to get my sleep cycle back in gear.
i'm a "i need my 8 hours, preferably starting around 10pm kinda girl".
& i just have to say this...
their tshirts are not referring to 'make love' as in sex.
just need to clear that up
being a family friendly blog & all.
little bit has only read the first book
but has seen all the movies.
she has some hysterical quotes that she does
with a stellar British accent no less.
but since our collection weighs about the same as she does
i couldn't resist taking the picture!
savannah enjoying a butterbeer at Harry Potter World
(which is non-alcoholic btw)
the girls proclaim this final movie
as their favorite~
both of them sobbing through much of it.
i'm hoping to get there very soon myself!
(probably during a matinee. of course!)
