Harry Potter Die Hards (well, most of us anyway)

We officially had the first semi-annual Harry Potter Party on Saturday.  Thank you to the amazing Andrea Freeman (or should we say Professor McGonagall) for all your hard work.  So much fun, thank you to all who came! 
The Place:  Hogwarts

The characters:

More character faces to come....

We had so much fun playing Quidditch!    I had the awesome opportunity being the Golden Snitch!  Yes... I was THE snitch.  And let me tell you, I was so sore the next day with those speedy kids chasing after me.  Way to go Brooklyne for being so fast!  Mom and Dad better get that girl in track when she gets bigger! 

The kids had a blast, and lets just face it, the adults did too; especially my crazy husband...Oliver Wood (who for some reason, never got a picture taken that night...don't know how we all missed him).

Here's a bit of how it looked.

Check out this Basilisk!  Ahhhhh!


The kids had fun being chased by the Basilisk.  Way to go Freemans for the HOURS of work put into making him!  I couldn't believe how cool he was!

The food was totally my favorite part.  Yes, Harry Potter food rocks!  Meat pies, shepherds pie, potatoes, butter beer, pumpkin juice, treacle tarts, candy apples, cupcakes, chocolate frogs, flying donuts, soooo yummy!
 The kids loved the flying donuts.  Thanks Millar family for putting that together, it was a hit!  Race and Witt thought it was delicious!
Our family had so much fun at the party; just a super-good excuse to get together with friends.  Race is really into Harry Potter; he's known he wanted to be Harry for Halloween pretty much since the day after Halloween LAST year.  We've been reading the first book together and he looks forward to it before bed.  Thanks everybody for the memories!
 Lane, a wizard in training.
 Thanks Kira for all the awesome pictures.  Love you friend.
 My amazing friend Andrea, don't know what I'd do without you!
We love you Harry!
