Yes, I am a Nerd and I Married a Nerd!

I have no illusions about my nerd status, I was raised by a nerd (my dad, mom symbolized some sense of normality in our house, well kind of) and I married a nerd (they really do make the best husbands) and our kids will have some sort of nerd-esque quality about them. I have come to terms with it and I have accepted it, all is well.

Anyway, to prepare us for the final installment of Harry Potter, Stephen and I decided to have a Harry Potter movie marathon. And what would make our movie marathon more exciting? Building Hogwarts out of Legos. I know, the perfect nerd combination. It was basically awesome!

We finished with the first half of the 7th movie the night before we went to see the final movie and I'm glad we did because I would have forgotten too much between movies. Needles to say Harry Potter 7 Part 2 was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I loved it!

Now if the previous confessions have not cemented my nerdiness then this next part should. The next day we decided we needed to take pictures of all our hard work and we needed to reenact the final battle scenes with the Lego people. Furthermore I feel compelled to share these pictures with the blogosphere, enjoy.

Yup! You're a nerd! But it's okay. So am I. :) Those wands are huge! They look like lightsabers! I'm glad you got to have some fun with your legos. :)
