Weekend update - birthday party photos

Here is the cake I made for Friday's party.  It was super easy.  I ordered this icing layover on Ebay.  She has plenty to choose from, all different designs.  You just make a 10x13 inch cake, icing it and peel and place the overlay.  She even personalizes it for no extra charge.  I paid around $8.00 for it.
These are the Webkinz Owls that we gave out as party favors.  I was able to get all five of them for a steal and since I'm anti-candy lately I figured everyone would love a Webkinz.  They were a big hit.
We had all sorts of "Harry Potter" like foods.  This is a picture of our Herbology Health Tray.  We also had Percy's Prefect Mini Pizzas (Bagel bites), Hagrid's stuffed dragon eggs (stuffed mushrooms), Dumbledore Bat Wings (chicken wings), and Butterbeer Floats (which were rootbeer, butterscotch syrup and vanilla icecream).  They were quite yummy if I do say so myself.
My daughter (red nightgown) did seem to have fun, though I think she would have liked it better if the girls were more into the movies.  We played them over our projector and it looked really good up on the wall.  My other daughter (pink in back) was asleep by 11 p.m.  She went swimming earlier and it wiped her out.  Same with my son, he too was asleep by 11 p.m.
The rest of them were asleep around 1:30 or 2 a.m. and up again around 6:45 a.m.  Can't say I was nearly that energetic.
Would I do it again?  Hmmm.  Maybe for daughter number 2 so she doesn't have middle child syndrome all her life, but I'm pretty sure my oldest is done having traditional parties.  Next year we'll take a friend to the movies and call it a day.
I still have to survive Saturday when all the grandparents arrive...including my grandma, my mom, my dad and my stepmom.  Add some inlaws and it should be awkward with a capital A.

Wow! that looked like fun for the girls! You had some great ideas and I love the webkinz. Your daughter looks just like you, but you probably hear that all the time...hehehe I will just go ahead and admit to being a big big BIG Harry Potter Nerd! I loved the books, I love the movies. I could watch them over and over. I cannot WAIT for Half Blood Prince !!!!!

word is "coeti", which is what you catch from hanging around boys!
