Happy Easter!

 Online Mass, a Harry Potter scavenger hunt to reveal the location of the Easter baskets, and then a family dinner.

Working through the clues together (love it!)

Clues, Eggs, Cake

And our Harry Potter quote/clues, which I really thought would stump them.  But K got most of them before she finished the quote:

  1. “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.” (growth chart on wall)
  2. “Do I look stupid?” snarled Uncle Vernon, a bit of fried egg dangling from his bushy mustache. (eggs in fridge)
  3. “Percy wouldn’t notice a joke if it danced naked in front of him wearing one of Dobby’s hats.” (on Dobby)
  4. “Where is Wood?” said Harry, suddenly realizing he wasn’t there.
    “Still in the showers,” said Fred. “We think he’s trying to drown himself.” (Shower)
  5. “I dreamed I was buying new shoes last night,” said Ron. “What d’ya think that’s gonna mean?”
    “Probably that you’re going to be eaten by a giant marshmallow or something,” said Harry.  (G’s new shoes)
  6. “I assure you that if you die, you need not hand it [homework] in.” (Homework table)
  7. “Well, I certainly don’t,” said Percy sanctimoniously. “I shudder to think what the state of my in-tray would be if I was away from work for five days.”
    “Yeah, someone might slip dragon dung in it again, eh, Perce?” said Fred.
    “That was a sample of fertilizer from Norway!” said Percy, going very red in the face. “It was nothing personal!’
    “It was,” Fred whispered to Harry as they got up from the table. “We sent it.” (Animal poop – litter box)
  8. “I’m never wearing them,” Ron was saying stubbornly. “Never.”
    “Fine,” snapped Mrs. Weasley. “Go naked. And, Harry, make sure you get a picture of him. Goodness knows I could do with a laugh.”  (Camera)
  9. “Can I have a look at Uranus too, Lavender?” (Lavender)
  10. “This is night, Diddykins. That’s what we call it when it goes all dark like this.” (Closet)
  11. “You’d think people had better things to gossip about,” said Ginny as she sat on the common room floor, leaning against Harry’s legs and reading the Daily Prophet. “Three Dementor attacks in a week, and all Romilda Vane does is ask me if it’s true you’ve got a Hippogriff tattooed across your chest.”
    Ron and Hermione both roared with laughter. Harry ignored them.
    “What did you tell her?”
    “I told her it’s a Hungarian Horntail,” said Ginny, turning a page of the newspaper idly. “Much more macho.”
    “Thanks,” said Harry, grinning. “And what did you tell her Ron’s got?”
    “A Pygmy Puff, but I didn’t say where.” (Pygmy Puff)
  12. “He can move faster than Severus Snape confronted with shampoo.” (Shampoo)
  13. “Go on, have a pasty,” said Harry, who had never had anything to share before or, indeed, anyone to share it with. It was a nice feeling, sitting there with Ron, eating their way through all Harry’s pasties, cakes, and candies (the sandwiches lay forgotten). (Cake)
  14. “I’m not blamin’ yeh … but I gotta tell yeh, I thought you two’d value yer friend more’n broomsticks or rats. Tha’s all.” (Broomstick)
  15. “I believe your friends Misters Fred and George Weasley were responsible for trying to send you a toilet seat. No doubt they thought it would amuse you.” (Toilet)
  16. _ _  _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _ (An underlined word in each clue, unscrambled, said "on the front porch."  Unfortunately, I put them where the sun shines and some of the chocolate had melted, but fortunately, the girls thought this was funny...
