Have You Gotten Your Letter Yet?

Today is my youngest daughter's 11th birthday.

I'm certain that this simple letter will be her most favorite present - ever.



Wouldn't it have been yours?

I MUST do this for Madison next year. Did you make it yourself?

Rational Jenn said...

HOW COOL! Can you bewitch it to fly? ;)

Making a note for 4 years from now.....

And Happy Birthday to your daughter!

LB said...

Yes, I made it. I tried to follow the exact typesetting of the American version of the book (our English version is no doubt hidden somewhere in the secret chamber of my daughter's room).

I must warn you ladies not to make the same rookie mistake that I made: Don't forget the ink used on the envelope is green!

I will never live that down.

And while I couldn't make it fly, I do have a snowy owl puppet and wish I had remembered that and hung it and the letter from the light in her room. Oh well, live and learn.

Fabulous, LB!

Even with the gaff of not using the right color ink, and your limited skill set in making things fly, given the fact that you are a muggle, you earned yourself major mom points!

LB said...

Thanks.

Strictly speaking, I might not be a muggle. I'm quite sure my mother is a witch, which in no way insults her.

Michael Randall said...

Hahaha! Fantastic!

You are one cool mom. My kids would have been overjoyed to receive a letter like this. I hope they are still HP fanatics in 3 years time.

Happy birthday to your daughter.

Doh! Need to go back and reread the whole series because I forgot how all-important 11 is when my son had his birthday this past winter.

Was just planning to reread The Half-Blood Prince. Grumble, grumble. Amongst other books I'm SUPPOSED to be reading.

Happy Birthday, you-know-who!

LB said...

Even if they're not still big fans, it should at least conjure a terrific memory.

LB said...

Hey, Fiddler! Even though she got Voldemort on the HP personality test once, it was getting Draco that made her cry.

Shez said...

I just did the HP test, I am Prof Dumbledore. Can't wait for the kids to take it tomorrow morning. thanks for the link.

I've put a reminder in my calendar for a month before my kids' 11th birthday so that I don't forget the Hogwarts acceptance letter. How's that for forward planning? LOL

LB said...

This is really the test she took. I knew it was based on the Myers-Briggs type, but I found only that other one quickly last night.

I don't know what the difference is, but I came out as Hermione in both, so they're obviously quite accurate.

Shez said...

I came out as Prof Snape on this one. However, it was the same as my Meyer's Brigg's profile. I'm going to try this on my kids this afternoon. thanks for the link.
