Dress up shenanigans...

By PaisleyJade - Sunday, November 25, 2012

Our beautiful friend Kate celebrated her 30th this weekend with a dress up dinner.  The theme was "famous, film and fairy tale characters starting with the first letter of your name". 

Syms and I always love a good dress-up party (must be because of the all the years we've been youth pastors doing crazy dress up events) but I just couldn't quite decide what to dress up as starting with 'K'... Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Caribbean, Keisha Castle-Hughes in Whale Rider or Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games?

I soooo wanted to go as Keisha with my big blow up whale cause I knew it would be funny, but it just wasn't quite happening...

So I settled on Katniss, and Symon went as Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Carribbean (he looked pretty awesome if you ask me ;)

It's always a bit awkward when you first arrive at a dress up party - that's until you meet Moses (with his tablets) and Ronald McDonald (with his healthy salad), then everything is fine.

The party was awesome - everyone dressed up and it was so funny!

Kate is such a precious girl - she looked amazing as Kimbra.  Happy birthday Kate - love you lots!

And the crack me up group photo...

Haha - that's all I have to say.
