A California Cowboy!

Toots got some new jeans yesterday due to a GAP giftcard and a sale on jeans (buy one and get the next pair for $10 if you are interested) and of course decided that if he has jeans that there must be some costume to go with them.



So he came down dressed as a REAL cowboy and I dove for my camera because he just looked so stinkin cute that I wanted to eat him right up. Plus, I am having a blast learning to use my Canon in some of the manual modes and playing in Photoshop. I just had to share them with you because I am just nice that way.



Here is my little California Cowboy!

Cute! He's so confident that the bad guys won't bother him, he doesn't even bother to put his shoes on. :)

Nice to meet you too.

DM said...

Glad to see you're a Canon user too. Those are some great pictures. My kids will never pose like that for me.

Well, I love me some cowboys... My sweet son's hat is black. It's a problem, as apparently all the bad guys wear black hats. Who knew?

The Redhead Riter said...

Being the mother of a true Texan and having lived there most of my life, I must say...

GIDDY UP~I LOVE THE HAT!!!

I love a sexy cowboy...think...Tim McGraw...yummy!

LOL

I hope you have a great day!

I totally meant to comment when I found your blog and started following! He is so handsome and I love these pictures!! You got some great ones! Your family is beautifuL!

Erin Dori said...

Freakin' adorable! He reminds me of my Joe-Bear when he was that age...although his costumes weren't so well put together. He's find the most random things to wear. It always made me smile, though. *sigh* I miss those days.

Anne Ericsson said...

WOW! Great pictures and great photographer too:-)

Alright, so I took Charlie Wade to get his pics done today and he wore his wranglers and cowboy boots (of course) but then the lady popped a little cowboy hat on his head. He posed like crazy. Once I get a spare sec I'll post em. I think we're living some kind of mirrored existence - starting to get weird. :-)Your little guy is adoreable. Raise him right, my Mary Caroline will be looking for a good God - fearin' cowboy! He looks like a man's man.

Nancy said...

Michelle said...
