Our family did a Harry Potter Quidditch theme with a m interactive trunk for the kids to play. Tj and I were Gryffindor Quidditch spectators, Dominik was Harry Potter - Gryffindor Seeker - and Parker was Hedwig. For our trunk we made the Quidditch hoops and quaffles that the kids had the throw through the rings. If they could throw the quaffle through the middle and smallest ring Han they got a butter beer (cream soda). The kids loved it and our line was super long all night; not that it's a competition or anything...but if it was we would have totally won ;)
The ward party was a huge success too! We did a chili cook off with root beer and hot dogs and then followed it up with some family fun Minite-to-win-it games. Everyone seemed to have a good time and it was so different than the typical carnival type fall festival parties that are so frequent this time of year!!
I'm so grateful for the wonderful ward that we moved into and for my new calling that pushes me to my limits and makes me work hard!!
