Harry Potter was AWESOME.  Bryan and I walked to the theatre (in my new fancy long down coat) and caught the noon showing.  It was a lot of fun.  Very dark.  Since it's the first part of the last book, a good amount happens.  It's a two hour movie but it still goes very fast.  I really enjoy seeing Harry, Hermione and Ron as young adults.  I think they did a good job in this movie for sure.  Hermione (Emma Watson)  was especially excellent. 

Bryan and I killed zombies in Call of Duty: Black Ops.  It was pretty fun, but I really really suck.  And playing video games hurts my eyes because I just don't blink enough.  He really likes it, so I thought it would be worth trying.

So far I've bought a fair amount of Christmas presents, and I got really good deals on them.  David and Stacey are almost totally done, Ella is done, Mom and Dad Lords are done.  I just have my folks, Nicole and Stuart, and possible another small thing for Dave and Stac and I'm done!!  Woohoo!!  I'm VERY excited about the toy I got for Ella.  I think she'll like it, and it's supposed to be amazing at soothing babies, which is very cool.  I've done all of my shopping online so far, which is awesome.  With the discounts I've found, free shipping codes, etc., I'm doing great at saving money.  So far I've spent less than 20 bucks so far on 4 presents!!  I've been writing reviews on Viewpoints, and that's really helped with the money situation; right now if you write ten reviews, you get a $10 Amazon gift card.  I had some free money on, which was awesome as well.  I'm hoping that we wend up spending less than $100 total this Christmas, but we'll see.  I have my eye on lots of deal sites, and I'm trying to keep on top of limited time offers.  I love getting 80% off deals!!

One thing Bryan mentioned about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One:  it's definitely not a kid's movie.  I think children over the age of ten would do okay, but I think it's just too scary for kids younger than that.  I am definitely a bit fan, though, and I highly recommend it!!
