The Deathly Hallows is here. We attended a book release party at Borders last night, that was really late and crowded and loud, but I think we had fun. Margaret dressed as Luna Lovegood and Sophie and Ellie went as Winky and Dobby. Anna went as the cute, sleepy baby in the sling, and Tony and I were very convincingly dressed as Muggles.
Winky and Dobby attracted so much attention that everywhere we went people were exclaiming about the cute little house elves, and asking if they could have their picture taken with them. One girl tried to give Dobby a sock, but Winky and Dobby were getting pretty tired and cranky and wishing everyone would leave them alone, so they wouldn't accept the clothes.
Most importantly, though, we have the book in our hot little hands and Margaret and I are reading it in turns. We'll post more about our recent adventures in a few days when we've reached the end!
