It is of course no secret that I am a Harry Potter fan. So naturally when given the opportunity to have a Harry Potter viewing party I jumped at the chance. From home made Butter Beer to Licorice Wands and Pumpkin Pasties to coloring books we had it all! My best friend Melanie and I even went so far as to make shirts (insert snort of laughter here). We started at 10am Friday morning and ended at 4am Saturday morning...yes you read that right - 18 hours of Harry Potter magic. We did not even pause between movies. We declared ourselves insane shortly after concluding. Was it worth it? Oh yes!!! It was most definitely worth it!! It could not have been more fun. From beginning to end we saw the characters grow up and fight the battles of life and we were honored to join them! To entertain ourselves we bought a Harry Potter coloring book (don't hate - appreciate). Shown are a few of the masterpieces we created.
