Lexie's golden birthday

One of my best friends celebrated her golden birthday recently!
I took this of Lexie after her last haircut, she needed new head shots ;)

Lexie turned 27 on the 27th of August, and decided to throw a little costume party to celebrate. What's a costume party without a theme, am I right? Lexie chose to make her birthday a Harry Potter themed party{!!!}, and I couldn't have been happier. I do love some Harry Potter, and any excuse to get dressed up is good by me.
Instead of donning a traditional Hogwarts robe and going as a student, I went out of my way to find Billy and I fun costumes. We went as Luna Lovegood and Hagrid! Billy even had one of Sadie's dog toys, a skunk, pinned to his belt as a pelt lol
 Lexie was the Golden Snitch, because it was her golden birthday after all.
There were a ton of Hogwarts students, and Harry Potter wannabes. Want to see who attended?
Lexie's mom Moira, and Dad Roark, came as Professor Trelawny and Mad Eye Moody!
Her sister Katie was Bellatrix Lestrange, and Katie's fiance Dan was a young Tom Riddle
Mr. Weasley dressed as a muggle showed up along with Professor Dumbledor
A super cute house elf showed up with a wand and clothes, she was pretty powerful
Things got a little weird when Batman showed up. I'm not sure he was at the right party.
We had a fun happy sock contest, enjoyed Pinterest orange mold Jell-o shots, and then played Harry Potter Scene It, which was super hard with the party noise going on.
I even made Butterbeer cupcakes using this recipe. They turned out so incredibly yummy! Don't be fooled by my lackluster presentation, I haven't perfected the piped frosting trick yet, so they look less awesome than they tasted.
I'm so happy I was able to celebrate with you Lexie!
