"No outside food, no laptops, and NO WANDS!"

Most pictures are worth a thousand words.  Not this one.

If you know what's going on then
1.  You figured out the "wand" reference
2. You realize that the only movie worth seeing lately is the new Harry Potter movie

I am sad to say that this is the ONLY picture I have from the night.  Andrew and I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter.  We even dressed up!  You can't really tell, but I am wearing a robe and Andrew has a scare on his forehead as well as a cape (which he only wore it for 5 minutes).  A special thanks had to go to our friend Corinne for getting the tickets!! The quote from the blog title is from the theatre workers who went around as we waited in line and made sure we understood what was banned in the theatre. Did you notice the elephant on the wall behind us?  Thank you Idaho Falls for decorating your theaters so beautifully with zoo animals. 

What you can tell from this picture is how exhausted we are.  Andrew vows that he will never again go to a midnight showing.  We did not get much sleep that night and I had school the next day and we were originally planning on leaving for Utah that night for thanksgiving.  However, on thursday we got news that Andrew's grandpa had passed away.  We changed our plans so that we could go to Andrew's house and be there for the funeral.  We drove all day on Saturday with Andrew's brother Stuart.  The trip took about 3 or 4 extra hours because of the snow.  We woke up at 4:30 am on Saturday to try and make it out of Idaho before the storm hit.  We hit stormy weather from the start.  Visibility was terrible but Andrew was a careful and skillful driver.  We arrived safely in Washington saturday night.  (My sleeping pattern is still wacky)  We were grateful to be here with Andrew's family for the funeral.
