To celebrate this momentous occasion, Ryan and I had a Harry Potter Party. We invited some friends over to watch Harry Potter, 7.1 (the last book was so thick that they broke it into two parts when making the movies). We had some Harry Potter inspired good eats, watched 7.1 and then four of us headed to the movie theater to watch 7.2 .
Below are some of the pictures that were taken at the party--Colleen was the photographer.

2, 8 oz. packages of softened cream cheese
1 packet of dry ranch seasoning (for making dips)
Chopped Olives (I buy the smallest can and use about half of them)
Chopped Bacon (I like bacon, and so does Ryan, so we usually put 4-6 slices in it)
8 oz block of Shredded Cheese (I use colby jack. I put most of it in the mix and then roll the ball in what's left)
Mix together and then form into a ball. Refrigerate 2-4 hours, serve with Triscits. :)
