Big Bad Handsome Men

I Do Countdown: Three Days!
I adore this photo. Angus looks so grown up. Sam looks so unsure, still a little boy, 
wary of this smiling, strange but pretty young woman who is measuring him in strange places 
and doing up his buttons. Tonight we took the boys into Tigg's in Bracebridge 
for their tuxedo fittings. We had let them pick out their own suits from the catalogues 
and we ordered them on June 25, when they were measured from head to toe.
A few months later, and my, how they've grown. Angus needs pants almost two inches longer. 

And instead of the biggest boy's size, he will be getting the smallest man's size. Sam's JUST fits.
Seeing my boys in such manly attire brought a tear to my eye and made the wedding day oh so real.

Sam was SO uncomfortable with the fitting.
But I guess when you're 10 there are
better things you could be doing.
Anything, really.
Maybe even homework.

Angus didn't look so thrilled either, although Dave said he'd give anything
to have two pretty girls fussing over him at the same time!

This is Sam's patented "I am being tortured" look.

Now there's a smile!

I dedicate this Imelda May song to my Big, Bad Handsome Men:


The man is tall, mad, mean, and good-lookin'
And he's got me his eye
When he looks at me, I go weak at the knees
He's got me going like no other guy

Chorus
Cause he's my big, bad, handsome man
He's got me in the palm of his hand
He's the Devil Divine, I'm so glad that he's mine
Cause he's my big, bad, handsome man

Oh, the music he plays, the way he moves me and sways
Rocks me to the core
When he sings in my ear, he makes me shiver and leer
Leaves me wanting more and more

Cause he's my big, bad, handsome man
He's got me in the palm of his hand
He's the Devil Divine, I'm so glad that he's mine
'Cause he's my big, bad, handsome man

With his rugged good looks yeah he’s got me hooked
Got me where he wants me to be
With his arms so wide, he pulls me in by his side
He’s the kind of guy that does it for me

Chorus
Cause he’s my big bad handsome man yeah
He’s got me in the palm of his hand
He’s the devil divine, I’m so glad that he’s mine
Cause he’s my big bad handsome man
Ouuuw
My big bad handsome man, yea
He’s got me in the palm of his hand
He’s the devil divine, I’m so glad that he’s mine
Cause he’s my big bad
I’m so glad that he’s my handsome man
Hhmmmm

  2. I can hardly wait to see you guys! It's been so long since I've seen your girls - I imagine they're pretty grown up themselves!
    Give me a call when you get into Bracebridge and I'll pass on the details for Friday night! I can hardly wait to see you! *hugs*

  5. Sam seemed to be giving you the evil eye in that photo of him with the red vest...Angus seemed to be warming up the procedure in that one where he's smiling. Nothing makes a young man look more grown up than a suit. Thanks for sharing those, Cathy.

  7. Very handsome young men. The older one looks like he is really enjoying the attention of the attractive lady helping him out. Watch out he is going to be a heart breaker soon.
