Behold, an innocent young piñata . . .


. . . transfigured into Professor Dolores Umbridge for Mookie’s Harry Potter-themed birthday party, which is tomorrow.


I hope enough of the kids know the books to appreciate the joy of giving her a good smack.

One thing’s certain: no one in this house puts as much time into styling her own hair as Joy just put into curling Umbridge’s. I’m also very impressed by Mookie’s care to show the twists in the “ribbon” bow.


More photos of ping-pong-ball Quidditch, Pin the Tail on Dudley, wand-making, and guests in costume after the gala.
