Last Friday my mom hosted a Harry Potter party at her library.
Here's what we saw in the lobby.
My sister and I decided to go as brothers:
One kid said to us, "Nice hair! Who are you?"
We put our heads together and said, "Ummmm, what do you think?"
He said,' OH! Right! Which one's Fred and which one's George?"
We kind of had to fight over it, given what happens in book seven.
Here's one of the other moms as Professor Sprout.
Isn't she great??
We each got sorted into houses with a real sorting hat!
I was Ravenclaw. Very relieved I didn't get put in this house:
(My sister and son weren't so lucky.)
Here's my mom as Madam Hooch.
We played Quiddich inside with a balloon and feather dusters. Believe it or not, it got kinda ugly! Professor Sprout pulled my hair off! My my house still tied for first!
We also had to take OWL's. I think my house tied for second place. And then, we had a scavenger hunt for the Sorcerer's Stone, which involved visiting Moaning Murtle's bathroom.
After the house cup winners were announced (my house tied for first! yay!) and the prizes were given out (Burtie Botts Every Flavor Beans), we had some refreshments.
And Aragog's babies:
It was such a fun night. I was so impressed with all the kids' costumes and the way my mom put it all together. Hopefully she'll have another party this summer to kick off the final movie. I'm sure there will be tears. Do any of us really want to let go of the magic?
