Who’s this Harry Potter???

So tomorrow the final chapter of the most amazing story comes to an end.  I’m sure you’ve heard of this young wizard named Harry and if not, what rock have you been living under?  I’m not sure who’s more excited.  The legions of youngsters for whom the books were written or the mother’s of said youngsters.  Just reading all the twitter feeds and blogs that have been dedicated to this upcoming event would indicate the latter.  I would be included in this group for sure. 

I think the movies have been playing non-stop on ABC Family for the last few weeks and sure enough as I flip through I can’t go past the channel.  We introduced the first movie to Abby and Rowan about 3 weeks ago because of all the commercials for the new one kept coming on.  They would announce each time they wanted to go but I felt they should probably see the first before they see the last and maybe the 7 other movies too.  Don’t panic, I won’t let them watch past the 3rd one, as they are a bit dark.  But I have to say, they loved it!  It’s funny because in Canada and pretty much every where else in the world, the first movie is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, but here in the US it’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.  I’m not entirely sure why but there you go.  So when they here Sorcerer’s Stone they correct whoever said it, it’s very cute especially coming from Rowan who’s 3 :)

I loved reading the books.  I would get up first thing on the days they were released and run to the store to get them. I would do nothing else until I had read every page.  Nope I’m not a nutter who went to the mid-night release or dressed up.  I also loved watching the movies and following the young stars as they grew as their characters did.  They did an amazing job on these movies.

Recently I saw this video where the stars said in one word what the movies were to them. It’s amazing.

wow!

Now I’d like to take you on a tour of some amazing Harry Potter treats!  There are so many, these are but just a few!
