Yep. They are adorable.
Not that I am biased in any way...*wink wink*
My little men were so happy to be real knights for Halloween. I actually made the shirts, scale and all. I am no seamstress but I think they turned out pretty good! All by hand, mind you...sewing machines like to bite me so I went for the more puritanical method. Anyway, they liked them even if the scale made them itch and the heat made them sweat.
Why is it that the entire week before Halloween we were freezing our nether-regions off but the day that my kids need to wear long sleeves (they also wore long sleeeves underneath the long sleeves to keep the itchy scale armor away from their delicate skin...double the pleasure) it turns out to be eighty degrees outside??? We ended up only doing the trick-or-treating downtown...they became stripping knights before dark...so, we stayed home, watched E.T. (our only Halloween movie), and gave out candy. Of course they fought over who got to answer the door first and give out the most candy. Still, they never pierced eachother with their swords...so, all turned out well.
After all was said and done, Keegan remarked, "Wow. I think we sweated as much as any knight in battle." I just smiled and answered, "Good thing your chainmail was made of sequens instead of metal. But you did well, Sir Knight."
Here is a verse to dwell on:
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
