You get this!

Thing 2's Kindergarten class presented a heritage fashion show as part of their "Celebrate Us" unit. I opted for the easy route and dressed Jack as a cowboy since the mutt blood Nate and I blessed him with presented a serious complication - imagine a tartan kilt over knickers, complete with lederhosen, a horned helmet, and gold buckles on his shoes. A confusing and unfortunate picture, wouldn't you say? In all fairness, Nate and I both come from authentic cowboy stock (note Grandpa Day's belt buckle & bolo tie), so Jack's costume isn't too far off the mark.

Watch Jack strut his stuff on the catwalk (uh, countertop.)

Cowboy Jack and his beautiful senorita, Julia.
