piñata = chaos, right?

wrong. or, at least not always. Kajsa was invited to a “Princess Birthday Party” recently, and all the girls were asked (by the birthday girls) to wear a princess outfit over their clothes. To a park. It was a fantastic irony of princesses sliding down a metal slide, swinging, getting woodchips in their shoes, but looking pretty. Very fun, and Kajsa loved it.

The funniest moment of all for me was the piñata. First, I’d never seen a piñata with the strings, instead of a stick, or other object used to hit piñatas.

But second, once the candy came out… the princesses created their own little circle, taking their time to sort through the candy on the ground… It was so adorable.

After the princess party, we drove to the King of Prussia Mall for the Christ Covenant youth group’s fall kickoff–which included non-youth from church also. A mall hunt… some adults went in disguise, the youth wandered the mall looking for the “wanted” adults.. Jim and I were not in disguise. And neither was Kajsa, though she was in her princess outfit still. So she had fun running around the mall.
