Stay tuned for pictures and details on Harry Potter AND our imminent arrest … err… Danny’s Eagle Scout party. (check out the cake – I’ll have more details on this later too – isn’t it just stunningly amazing????? I can barely bake brownies! I can’t believe someone I know made that in her kitchen!!!!!!!)
I’m headed to bed but wanted to check in . . . Why do we go for long stretches with nothing that interesting going on and then all the interesting stuff gets bunched together?
In case you’ve never met me, I’m a Harry Potter addict. I love the books, I love the audio books and I mostly love the movies. A lot. For Christmas, my mom surprised me and my family and my sister and her family with tickets to Universal to check out the Harry Potter deal there. We all went today. (For the record, my brother was invited, but he hates theme parks, hasn’t read HP and I think my sister and I and our combined seven kids make him twitchy lol). I’m not going to go into detail right now, but suffice it to say that I LOVED it. LOVED LOVED LOVED it. Despite being soaking wet and freezing for most of the day, we all had a blast. I promise more details in a future post.
Tomorrow is Danny’s Court of Honor for his Eagle Scout rank. He’s having the ceremony with three other boys/young men that he has been with since they were all about seven. It’s amazing to have four kids from one troop, much less one little patrol, make Eagle Scout. I’m so incredibly proud of Danny. He earned this on his own. We were lucky to find a great group way back when he was in second grade. Mike and I have made some lifetime friends and Danny has as well.
After the official ceremony, because I’m clearly smoking crack in my sleep, we’re having a cookout. It seemed small and easy when I was planning it weeks and weeks ago, but you all know how that goes. Three soaps to the person who correctly guesses the first patrol car at the house tomorrow. We’re expecting between 35-50 people. No explosives are planned, but who knows.
