Christmas Kisses
My apologies to the requester that this photo doesn't include Telstar, but I thought it was a cute one, and it fulfills the prompt for a photo of two family members touching noses. This is Humuhumu and me during the Great Present Unwrapping on Christmas Day.

One of the other fun bits of our Norfolk days was that Granny and Granddad decided to watch the first two Harry Potter films with the grandchildren. This led to the following conversation.

Me: "So what houses do we think everyone is in?"
Nephew (younger): "I'm a Slytherin!"
Nephew (elder): "I'm Ravenclaw because they're the coolest."
Niece: "I'm definitely Ravenclaw because Ravenclaws are smart."
Nephew (younger): "I'm Slytherin!"
Niece: "Humuhumu is Gryffindor because she's brave and Keiki is Hufflepuff because he's just soooo cute."
Nephew (younger): "SLYTHERIN IS THE BEST!"
Niece: "Oh, and Auntie Nanila, you are DEFINITELY Gryffindor. Definitely."
Me, internally: "...I am?!"

Not that you don't have all the best Gryffindor qualities, but, surely, no one is more Ravenclaw than you?!

I took the Pottermore test and it sorted me into Slytherin. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Pottermore put me in Slytherin, but I was defintiely hoping for Ravenclaw.

Pottermore put me in Slytherin. Nephew (younger) will be overjoyed!
