Ben had a party


Throwing a Harry Potter birthday party is a cinch the second time around. We more or less repeated Emma's party from back in January. Except 9 year old boys are a whole different animal than 10 year old girls (any down time turned into a scene from WWF). We spent more time in Defense Against the Dark Arts this time too. For some reason the only thing I took photos of was transfiguration class.

Waiting for their instructions.

Dragon

Harry's glasses

Flying car

And yes, we left the candles on the ceiling up the entire 9 months between parties. We used to vote on it during dinner, whether to leave them up or take them down. The 'leave-them-ups' always won. I guess it's time to move on now...

Happy Birthday to Ben! Love the cake! I'd like a bite of it right now. And I vote you leave the candles up until the cows come home. Why take them down right before Christmas? They'd make a nice Christmas decoration.
