Last Year It Was That Mustache...


Last year he grew that THING-





 I think they call it a mustache?  I've repressed it.  : ) 

And now??  That King Charming of mine just can't seem to leave his good looks alone-



But this time I can forgive him because it was for such a great cause: 





Being the hero that he is, he shaved all his hair off to show his support for kids with cancer and to raise money to help find a cure.  

Before: 


After:


My Hero!

Thank you so much to all of you who put up with our constant begging on Facebook, and to those of you who contributed to the almost $500 he raised.  His team took first place with a total of $6,800 and the event here in our city raised over $50,000.  Awesome!

My new hero is the lady he works with who shaved all of her long, beautiful blond hair off in memory of her mom who recently passed away from cancer.   And one of the men raised another $600 or so when he promised to shave the mustache he had been growing since he was 16 years old.  Of course they took care of that on stage.  : ) 

It was a good lesson for our kids.  Prince Charming didn't recognize this new bald version of his daddy, but the girls are now growing their hair out for Locks of Love so they can be like their daddy. 

Hope you all are having a blessed weekend and surviving the Day Light Savings change. 

Love,

And what a great example this is to your kids. He actually looks really good like this btw. How come it's the guys with the very nicely shaped skulls who don't lose their hair?

Awesome! What a guy! He looks good with a clean head. : ) I have a soft spot for cancer kids - lost a 7 year old cousin to neuroblastoma in 2006. What a wonderful example of sacrificial giving your husband is providing.

WHAT? You wouldn't let the girls shave their heads, would you?

No, Mom,never fear. Locks of Love is an organization that you donate cut hair so they can make wigs out of it for cancer patients. The girls would be cutting off approx. 8 inches, but not shaving their heads. : )

Thanks, Nancy and Karen! I think he looks good, too.

Karen- It is unfair, isn't it? LOL.

Nancy- I'm so sorry for your family's loss. How heartbreaking. I pray we find a cure soon.
