"My life is complete!"

Three words: Harry Potter Exhibition.
This was one of the coolest things I have ever seen. The Exhibition is traveling around the world and (supposedly) only stops in three cities in the U.S. The staff are also traveling with the exhibit and I think they have been traveling for a year now. We went up to Seattle to see it at the Pacific Science Center. We got to see costumes used in the movies, props, character's wands... It was amazing! We got to pull up mandrakes and throw quaffles into goals. The attention to detail for these movies is really impressive. I actually read the O.W.L. test and a quiz given by Professor Lockheart. The bulletin board in the Gryffindor Common Room has real flyers and ads. I got to sit in Hagrid's chair, and let me tell you, that thing is HUGE! This exhibit was fantastic and easily one of the best Christmas presents I have ever received!

The Days After Christmas

Jessica and I both got very exciting presents from Tanner this year. I got a Momo toy and Jessica got an Appa! (For those of you who are confused, those are creatures from Avatar: the Last Aibender.) Murry keeps trying to get them, so they have to stay out of reach. Dad thinks they are creepy, mostly because of Momo's eyes, but Appa does have six legs...whatever. We like them.

Another exciting present is the fact that we are going to head up to Seattle tomorrow to go see a Harry Potter exhibit! We are all pretty excited. We will see it tomorrow and then head to our cousins who I haven't seen in quite a while. It'll be very fun!

I gave mom tickets to go see Tangled this week. And our family is going to go see the new Narnia movie. And then Numbers Dinner on New Years Eve of course. So, as you can see, this week will be a very exciting one! Some people say the days after Christmas are depressing, I say Keep Celebrating!

Dec 16 2010

Today is December sixteenth two thousand and ten.
Today is the day I am done with my fall semester of Sophmore year at Brigham Young University.
Today is the day before I go home to Tualatin, Oregon for a slightly-longer-than-two-week break.
Today is the day my parents were married.
Today is a very good day.
Today also marks the half way mark.
I love TODAY.
