Harry Potter Mania
Today was our joint Harry Potter birthday party, and it was awesome! The morning got off to an amazing start when we woke to find that Uncle Parks, Aunt Lexi, Sophia, and Audrey had somehow managed to get us full Griffyndor regalia to wear to the party, delivered to our house in the middle of the night!
(Mom says it was magic; we think Uncle Parks went on a secret mission.)
Thankfully we didn't have too long to wait before it was time to go to the Y and get set up. Check out the golden snitch cake pops!
(Note: Mom did not make the cake pops or the sorting hat - she had to draw the line somewhere!)
As soon as our friends started arriving, they geared up in their capes and the games began.
Coach Anthony did an amazing job on all the games - we played Harry Potter tag, had a relay race, and then started playing Quiddtich. (After, of course, he sorted us into houses using the sorting hat.) He even had Harry Potter music to play during the final Quidditch match between Griffyndor and Slytherin!
We all had so much fun running around and playing.
We worked up quite an appetite, so then we enjoyed lots of pizza, chocolate frogs, and golden snitches.
After we ate, we shared the gift bags that we helped Mom make for our friends, complete with wands, more chocolate frogs and wizard cards, potions, Bertie Bott's beans, and a ticket to Hogwarts.
It was a wonderful party!!
When we got home, we realized that we accumulated a lot of loot ourselves! It was like Christmas in October. We are happy with all of our new presents, but we both agreed that the costumes were the best part!
The new stomp rockets are also pretty darn cool.
Yesterday, we had a good day playing soccer
Made all the more special because Grandma is here with us! We have loved playing with her and having her share in our birthday party.
Hope you had as fun and special a weekend as we did!
