This was an event with our parish young adult group. One of our new members graciously offered to host. This offer was very much appreciated because she has a YARD. An honest to goodness yard! In this area, those are rare features that are not often in the hands of someone under 40.
The yard was important for the star of the show: our devil pinata!
It was handmade by one of our core team members. It is way better than anything I could have hoped to make! He has a future in custom pinata making.
|I'm pretty sure this conversation looks more serious than it actually was.|
|Deviled eggs - along the lines of the devil theme.|
|Black berry punch! This was delicious added to the blackberry wine spritzers.|
|I can never convey in photographs how mouth-watering it is to watch a dessert that is still bubbling from the oven!|
We waited until the kids got antsy before doing the pinata. John LOVED it. Therese cried every time someone hit it. Can't win them all.
|Hitting the pinata was just too funny for John.|
|It took a lot of effort to hit the stationary object,|
|One of the better pinata hitting action shots.|
|And we succeed in defeating the devil!|
