Happy Number 9, Ainsley

It's the happy #9 for Ainsley, or Paige respectively. Ainsley is turning into a happier child than she ever was before. She tries very hard at everything she does. She aims to please. We had her teacher conference on Friday (her birthday) and of course she had straight A's.

Ainsley got a new cat for her birthday. I think it has something to do with her crazy parents.

This is Lily. She was rescued and adopted. Very sweet.

Ainsley read the ENTIRE HP series twice through since September. I finallytalked her into starting a new series last week. We'll see if it's a keeper. She loves Harry Potter so much she had a Harry Potter birthday party yesterday. Let me give you a low down.

The kids all received a letter from Prof. Dumbledore inviting them to attend Hogwarts on the day of the party. When the kids arrived, they had to go to Gringotts to withdraw some money. They also received a list of items necessary for school this year. Hogsmeade was in the garage. (We know ours was really a mixture of hogsmeade and diagon alley but so what.) There was Eeylops owl emporiaum, Flourish and Blotts, the Apothecary, and Honeydukes. I was going to make wands for veryone and have Ollivanders, but was a little overwhelmed. Who me???? They purchased everything they needed for school. Magic kits, cauldrons, pets, candy, etc.

After the shopping, we met in the Great Hall for the sorting hat ceremony. We taped my open cell phone into the hat and had ryan telling the girls from the other room whether they were gryffindor or slytherin. It was hilarious. They were so stumped!

Class was next. Divination, potions, charms, and transfiguration. If anyone wants details, I can give them to you.

Finally we went to the 3 broomsticks for butterbeer and cupcakes. It was so fun! Happy Birthday Ainsley!
