I hang out in dark alleys...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, December 18, 2009

Last night we had the coolest group of people around for a BBQ... they are the youth leaders we work alongside in our youth ministry, and they are all amazing.

Youth work has it's ups and downs, so these people are extra special.  Each one has something different to offer - some are administration machines, others are often serving behind the scenes, many are great at talking with and mentoring youth, and the list could go on and on.  It's not just what they do that makes them special, it's who they are - people who want to make a difference with their lives, and to do that they give up their own time and wants to give out to others (we love you guys!!).

So as you would imagine when a group of youth leaders get together, we sit down and talk about the awesome young people we work with and pray for each one we dress up in Hawaiian themed clothes, chuck some meat on the BBQ and try hitting a piñata!

I wasn't too keen to have a go at first, but after watching a few others have a turn I decided to give it a go... and I broke it open (hopefully their wasn't too much bias with hubby holding the rope).

I  had so much fun (and let out all my pent up parenting anger since the anti-smacking bill was passed... just kidding!)... and after watching the clip of myself (below) finishing her off, I wouldn't even want to meet me in a dark alley!

Such a cool time together... I think I need to make a Santa piñata for Christmas!
