LOL Harry Potter camp, are you for real?? My son would love that I am so intrigued what do they do there? We don't have camps like that here icon_cry.gif (not that I'm aware of anyway) they're usually Sport & Rec Camps in conjunction with the school. I bet they're really popular.

I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process. It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?

Yep, Harry Potter camp! It was run by our local community college, who has half day camps all summer. Most are the traditional sports & arts/crafts camps, but they also had 3 sessions of Harry Potter camp, Pirates camp, and Superheros camp. They made and decorated their own wands, made spellbooks (and practiced), collected potion ingredients and made potions, made "origami" owls carrying letters, did Harry Potter crossword puzzles and word searches, discussed the books and what they thought would happen in book 7, and their counselor read to them from book 5. I'm sure I'm forgetting things too, but DD had a blast. Oh, they wrote out their potion recipes on construction paper and blotted it with tea bags to make it look like old parchment. It was all really neat. The ages for this camp were 6-10, and there was another session for 10-13 year olds, but I don't know if they did the same activities or not. DD is hoping they'll offer it again next year.

That sounds so fun! I know a ton of kids who would have loved the chance to go to a camp like that!

Hooray! I love it!
My DD's birthday is the same day as Harry's! We are dorks, and were SO excited when she was born. We already have our Opening Night tickets! Now to make something HP cakish...

I LOVE the idea of Ron's House, btw!

o guys, i'm SO happy to hear there are so many other cake decorating/harry lovers out here. Me and my best group of girls in our early 20's or obsessed with it. Really, we're normal people! Before the premiere of the movie, we are planning on getting together at my house for a little pre-Harry party. Since i figure i'll be WAY too excited to do MUCH cake decorating.. i'm doing the broom cake in the Wilton 08 yearbook. I'm gonna write Nimbus on it. It's so funny to me how a group of women, some of us with children (me), and all of us with careers, are just like kids when it comes to this. For the book, we are planning to get together to read the last chapter together so we can talk about it IMMEDIATELY! HAHA! We're also thinking about dressing up for Barnes and Noble's party they are doing the day of the book release. I can't wait until my two year old is old enough to enjoy Harry with his mommy! O and something for the christmas wish list... They are coming out with a set of the hardbacks in a trunk like harry had to go to Hogwarts... Also i'm thinking maybe the 09 ICES convention in Harry Potter's theme park?????!!!!!
OK i might be going overboard but i'm really excited to hear i'm not the only one in love with HARRY!

You read my mind on both counts!! I am dying for the theme park to open! I told DH that he and the baby are staying home while my sister and I go for the first time, then they can come with me for the second trip. But the first time, no distractions! They totally have to convince some of the actors to be there for the opening!

I cant wait until the movie and book come out. I have of course pre-ordered the book and will be standing in line for the movie. My husband thought I was a dork until I got him to start reading the books now he is hooked to and cant wait for the next book to be released. Of course my friends still say I am a dork but I'll convert them next. This is so exciting. I think I am going to make harry potter cookies for the release date. I have to many cakes this month to do anything to big.
My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished 2 bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.

I'm a big HP fan also! Can't hardly wait for the new book and new movie. My oldest grandson is like a walking HP encyclepedia so I'm waiting for his 12th birthday in September to make a HP cake.

I've got you beat - I'm 37 & my sister is 33 and we love Harry! We have gone to the midnight book release and movie opening for every book except the first (didn't read that one until book 2 came out and then was so mad at myself for not reading it sooner). My best friend's daughters, ages 15 & 16 now, always go with us and we have so much fun trying to read the books before the others so we know the ending first!

I am so excited to see all the Harry Potter goodies everyone makes. I already started pieces of mine. We're having the cake the day of the book release, so I'll wait to post pics when it is all done.

I'm even worse! I'm 44 and my brother is 41 and we are hooked. I have read all of the books twice. I loaned the first one to my mother today and she is going to start reading them.

My 13 yr. old niece has turned into quite the Harry Potter geek. She saved her money (she's quite a hoarder) and has decorated her entire room in Harry Potter - the banners are hung, she has the clock from Ron's house, the platform sign and who knows what else! I'm sure that she and my brother will be in line for their book(s).
