Trick or Tweaking
Jacob picked out his costume back in September. My grandparents gave him some birthday money and I took him to Walmart to pick out whatever he wanted. He bypassed all the cars and cheap plastic crap and headed straight to the bright orange cap guns. He picked up the box and said "I wanna buy this" and then put it back down to pick out the black cowboy hat on the shelf above. Only then did he pick up his cap guns and stroll out of the toy aisle.
As we walked toward the checkout, I asked him if he wanted a bandana. Of course he did, but he wanted the pink one. I thought CS would frown on that, so I told him the orange would match his guns.
The vest and fringe shirt came from a friend and I am so happy it fit him. I added some fringe to his jeans with some fabric glue and the only thing we didn't have was a pair of real cowboy boots.
Don't worry, I'll remedy that soon.
