Of Thanksgiving and Deathly Hallows

I wanted to post these pictures on Friday, but I forgot to bring the memory card reader for my camera to take them off.  Oops.

I had a really nice Thanksgiving at home on Long Island with my family.  We went to my grandparents’ house to celebrate.  My grandpa even typed up the menu and posted it on the fridge, haha.  Here’s what we ate:


It was all delicious.  I love turkey and garlic mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes with marshmallows!  Now I’m making myself hungry.  Anyway, here’s our table from both ends:



How was everyone’s Thanksgivings?  Eat a lot of delicious food like I did?  My sisters and I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows on Saturday, November 27 and I absolutely loved it.  I haven’t really liked many of the other movies but I’m so glad they broke this one up into two movies to take their time and really be able to get to be a little bit more faithful to the plot of the book.  I know that some people have complained about the pacing of it but in the book, the trio DOES spend that much time in the woods, hiding and trying to figure out what to do about the Horcruxes.  I think they managed to really focus on what was important from those chapters.  When I got home, I checked and they really did get through almost 3/4 of the book by the end of the movie.  For all the haters:  The second movie will pick up at Gringotts and then all the action really gets started, so don’t fret!  I think that the payoff of Deathly Hallows is one of the most perfect story endings ever.  I reread the last few chapters twice since Saturday and I picked up even more things than before.  JKR really knew how to craft a perfect story and I’m finally excited for a Harry Potter movie to come out.
