Birthdays and Besties

Peach celebrated her champagne birthday on July 16. Sixteen on the sixteenth. How cool is that!? She and her friends all have varying degrees of love for the Harry Potter series, so she decided to have a Harry Potter themed party. (Disclaimer: I know not everyone agrees with their children reading the Harry Potter series. This post is not meant to start a debate about the good and bad of J.K. Rowling's novels.) Peach had her five closet friends over to sleep. They had a grand time chatting, watching movies, and enjoying Hogwarts style treats. Peach did all the planning a creating of the foodstuffs and decor. She was having so much fun creating, I didn't feel I should intrude.

The invite and ticket to get in. Oh she made all those wands too.

Potions.

Chocolate frogs. (Yes, the photo is a little blurry -- it's not your eyes.)

Bernie Bott's Every Flavor Beans. (Actually Jelly Bellys, because none of us could fathom eating a barf flavoured bean or any of the other strange flavours of Hogwarts
.
More of the yummies from Honey Dukes.

The Marauder's Map because they solemnly said they were up to no good. ;o)

 Decorating the birthday cake Hagrid style. :o)

 Peach and her friends. Such lovely girls! We love having them here!


As the tent was emptied of one group of chatting fun young ladies, it filled with another group. Since none of Beans's closest friend will be attending highschool with her (yet. Three of these young ladies are in grade 7), I told her she could have a get-together too.

 Leo felt he should be front and center for this shot. Such a funny little guy!

Love this group of lovely young ladies too! 

I am so thankful for the sweet girlfriends that both my teenage girls have. I hope they will have many more times of fun get-togethers, even though they won't/can't see each other as often as they would like.
