Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

This is a photo of my then four-year-old daughter practicing her "Expeliarmus!" spell as we were getting ready to leave for Borders to pick up our copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in July of 2007. We've yet to read these books to her, but just being around us she knows who Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbleodre and Snape are. She knew by osmosis that people dressed up for Harry Potter events and wanted to be in costume for this day.
