At 12:01AM on Friday . . .

Guess who's going to the midnight premiere of Harry Potter?

Me and my beautiful daughter!!
And yes, we're dressing up.
We're meeting friends there early
and playing games while we wait to get in.
We are counting down every hour.
We are serious Harry Potter fans in this house.

Thing 2 is cruising through Book 7
and will finish it this weekend.
He prefers watching the movies at home
where we can warn of him of scary parts. :)

He and Mark are having a camp out
in the living room while we're at the movies.

Mark gets to see it with Thing 1
(yes, she gets to see it in theaters TWICE!)
when she goes with her BFF sometime soon.
Her BFF is Jake's sister.
Jake is the one who is battling leukemia.
There is an organization that does neat things
for families who are dealing with cancer.
They try to make things special
not only for the one going through treatment,
but also the other family members as well.
So, Thing 1's BFF got tickets from them as a gift
for both her and Thing 1 to share!

10 hours to go!!

Lucky girls! You'll just HAVE to post a picture of the two of you dressed up. Did you wear a robe? Scarf? Glasses? I'm dying to know. :)

I am looking forward to seeing the movie, but I don't deal well with opening night crowds. I am happy to wait for a couple of weekends to see it. Hope you had a great time and I'd love to see how the two of you dressed up.

IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I can hardly wait for the 2nd one!! We're going to the midnight premiere of that one, too!!

Well, I'll post pics eventually, but just so you know -- it was so cold we were too bundles up to really see our outfits. I wore a t-shirt that says "Muggle" and Thing 1 wore my old graduation robes from graduate school (they're maroon) and mussed up her hair and put a badge on the robes and carried a wand!

I hadn't ever been to a midnight premiere before -- I really enjoyed the excitement! I was giddy. Everyone cheered when it started. It was fun to be "one of the first" to see it!
