Isn't this cute?!

Well, school is in full swing right now and my daughter is experiencing a lot of "final" high school experiences.  We already had our 'final' first day of school picture, and now we are headed into the fall season.

A week ago she didn't think that she would be going to homecoming this year.  This weekend, all that changed.



On Saturday afternoon these flowers were delivered - and the card said:

Hold this to the Mirror of Erised
To see what you desire

Mandy quickly noticed that the roses are the colors of Gryffindor House.




She opened the scroll - which looked like this.

After holding it up to the mirror she discovered that it read:

Will You be the Hermione to my Ron
And go to Homecoming with me?




In keeping with this Harry Potter theme, Mandy replied in the affirmative by purchasing a small owl stuffed animal and attaching a note that read something like:
Neither demons nor bludgers
Nor all the Malfoys -
Not even Valdemort himself
Could prevent me from going to homecoming with you.

Yes...this is a relationship based on Harry Potter and this bibliophile mother could not be more pleased that her youngest loves literature almost as much as she does!

Mandy actually looks like Hermione and Jake is definitely Ron Weasley made over.  There is even talk that they may attend the dance in character.  If that is the case, you can be sure that I will post pictures.

How wonderful. What a sweet way of inviting someone. My kids are experiencing their final things of junior school this year as they go up to senior school next year. Scary stuff.

Meghan said...

How sweet is that? I'm hoping for pictures!

This is seriously the cutest thing ever!

This is so very delightful I may smile all day! I heard that young folk are creatively asking for dates to dances this way, but, had not as yet heard how. I continue to be amazed at how the Harry Potter books have influenced our young readers, with pleasure I might add. How proud you must feel, Molly, and please post some pictures.

OK I just got chills. That is so totally cool. Now you HAVE to take her to Universal this winter!!!

Florinda said...

Love it! And if they go dressed as Hermione and Ron at the Yule Ball, that would make for some wonderful pictures :-).

Margot at Joyfully Retired said...

Oh, that is so sweet. So good to hear romance is still going strong in this generation.

Catherine Ensley said...

That guy sounds like he might be a keeper ... So cool.

Michele at Reader's Respite said...

That is the coolest Homecoming invite I have ever seen....I'm so excited for your daughter!

ds said...

Oh, how sweet--wonderfully creative! I hope they have a fabulous time. It would be so cool if they went "in character." Yes, please do share pictures, if your daughter allows. This post has made me unbelievably happy!

Jenners said...

Oh I can't even tell you how much I loved this! Glad to hear romance is alive and well!!!

Michelle said...

That is by far the cutest and coolest asking out I have ever seen. I hope your daughter keeps that invite as a keepsake! With an invite like that, you know she is going to have a blast! Please share pictures if they do indeed go in costume!

How sweet is he!?! Loved it!

Kelly said...

That is adorable! I'm impressed by this guy. I'm hoping for pictures!

Alyce said...

That is so sweet! Is the note handwritten or a computer font? I was curious if he'd spent time in front of the mirror writing it out. :)

Belle said...

This is just so sweet!! I would love to see pictures. My daughter started her last year of high school today, too. This time next year, I'll have two away at university - but there's still the little one to be homeschooled, thank goodness!

Bellezza said...

My goodness! Kids are so creative these days! This sure beats the way my son told me a few years ago, of a guy who put 100 bags of hot dog buns on his car and said, "Will you jiggle your buns with me at homecoming?" If I was her mom, I'd recommend not. ;)

Kim said...

Molly--that is just so, so cute and creative. It is especially fun for me to read, as I am plowing my way through the Harry tomes at this time. I just finished #4 over the weekend and am not headed into #5. I only have until November to get caught up!
Have a lovely evening--
*smiles*

Wow, oh wow, that is way cool!

Kathleen said...

What a fun and creative way to be asked for Homecoming!

Bibliophile By the Sea said...

How very sweet and creative too. I bet she is thrilled.
