      My oldest was 4 months old when the final book was released, and she was there at the bookstore with me for 7 hours waiting for it. We were on our local news and later got the clip on DVD.

      I’ve got a lot! We have a Harry Potter-themed nursery and birth announcement. I made everything, including the birth announcement design here.

      We LOVE Harry Potter! Created our first Harry Potter-themed Christmas tree this year filled with all sorts of things … my daughter loved playing with the wands the most! We leave in a week for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

    We started reading the books last May. We read a little each night, and when we finish the book we watch the movie together as a family! My son decided he wanted a Harry Potter-themed birthday party, so here is dining in the Great Hall! Each place setting has a cauldron of goodies, Harry Potter glasses, and a goblet, of course! We are finally on book 7, too!
