Santa Hat Thursday

Don't Look Yet.

Don't Look Yet.

Don't Look Yet.

Okay. I gotta tell ya first. Because these pictures really deserve a bit of explanation.


You see, I tried taking nice, respectable pictures of me in the Santa Hat. And all I saw was a fat old man. In a Santa Hat. And I wasn't happy with what I saw. Because what I saw wasn't what I feel like I should look like.

Anyway, yesterday morning we went to my favorite little restaurant to have breakfast. That was me and Annie and #3 Son, and Mark's two little boys that Annie takes care of. Not all are pictured here - they will be tomorrow - but not today. Anyway, we went there and one of the things we had with us was a feather boa for one of the waitresses. There is a picture of me, taken with a cell phone, on Facebook, in the Santa Hat, Santa Shirt and feather boa. It is, thankfully, a cellphone shot and badly focussed. Just find Anna Quaranta on Facebook. And look at her wall. It's there.

So then the shot below was taken - #3 Son thought it funny to play with "The Hat".


And then Annie took the shot below:


I hope those of you who wanted to see the Santa Hat like what you see. They look a heck of a lot better than the closeups.

You're Joe Cool! So fun! I put a Santa hat on my baby this year. It always attracts lots of attention and shows other people you're into the Christmas spirit.

Merry Christmas!
