Mama Mia!

I don't know about you but these last couple of months have been a whirlwind.  I barely remember the happenings in August, except that one of my very beautiful nieces came to stay with us for a few months.

HT and EM decided that she was Princess Peach and made her a crown.  They also made a Mario and Luigi hat for themselves and a Toad head for their papa.  Can you guess what they want to be for Halloween?

Once they all had their hats on, they went for a walk around the neighborhood.

I'm pretty sure that Papa will be none too happy with me for sharing this picture, but here's the deal:  I love him even more for it.  I love that he is willing to be silly for the enjoyment of his children.  That he is comfortable enough in his own skin to put on a goofy hat and go for a walk.

They probably won't remember this specific day, but I hope that they will remember this (when they are teenagers with an attitude), the love their father has for them, the humility he has shown and his faithfulness to his family.

Sweet post. I love the hats. I love (even more) that you all went for a walk in them. Such fun memories you are making.
