Harry Potter Birthday Party

As you may or may not know, last Thursday, July, 31 was Harry Potter's Birthday. My friends and I decided to throw a huge party and feast for a good number of our friends. 

We rented out a room in the Great Hall, or Heritage Halls Central building.

 I spent the entire day cooking and baking in preparation for the party. 

I made roast beef, two chicken and pork pies, potatoes and carrots, treacle tart, bread pudding, pumpkin juice, rice pudding (actually Lauren made the rice pudding) and rolls and pumpkin pasties, cauldron cakes and we had a huge bowl of jelly beans. 
Also for a night cap we all had warm bottles of butterbeer. 

Becky's apartment and her FHE brothers and a number of other friends showed up giving us a grand total of almost 30 people who attended. 

We were all dressed up in our best wizard garb and speaking in our best (very terrible) British accents. We had so much fun. There was Harry and The Potters music, musical Wizard's chairs, a duel, and just general splendor. 

I think everyone had a really good time, and I sure loved hosting it. 

We tried to get our Bishop to 

make a special appearance as Dumbledore,

 but he said he was too busy, sadly. 

I can't wait to have another wonderful party and feast. 

I had so much fun preparing it.

How fun! What a great idea! My friend Steph from DC (my old Ricks roommate) and her family are here for the week but I will call when they leave. I love that you have a blog! Yay! Now I feel like I can "keep in touch" a bit or at least have a clue what's going on in your life! I'm so sorry that you are so broken-hearted over Dalton. Just try to let go and enjoy these next two years and see what happens then. You never know who's waiting just around the corner or what Heavenly Father has in store for you. Often He suprises us with something ever more wonderful. I'll call soon. Love you. Gavin is standing here and says hi. He's three as of yesterday! I can't believe it!
