I guess it's the time of the year again :( My kids have already started to ask when we can get their costumes. I've thought about making them again this year but no clue what to do. Apparently Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum is out of the question.hehe What are your plans??

Last year they went as Thing 1 & Thing 2

I really wanted all my kids to match this year...my daughter wanted to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz so I tried to convince my boys to be a scarecrow, lion, or tin man...no such luck! I even told them I would dress up in a matching costume too and maybe make Daddy dress up. My daughter is still gonna be Dorothy, but my son (5) picked spiderman and my 2 yo son chose a monkey! Maybe I'll dress as a scarecrow to match Dorothy!

Check Pinterest...lots of inspiration for costumes there! How about butterflies? or a peacock?

This is too cute!
I have 'zero' plan except to hide...

No idea what either grandson will "be" as yet... Let's hope I have the photo to scrap.

Last year my Grandson wore a hand me down lion costume and of course he was simply adorable! I will be scrapping that one this year, but I don't know what he will be this year. Claire never tells us, she likes it to be a surprise :)

A couple years ago my daughter went to a Alice in Wonderland themed party as the blue catepillar. It was EASY to make and was terrific!! You could use multi colored tshirts to make multi colored catepilllars. Here is the picture of her costume:

That is adorable Missi and I love that the legs are attached to her arms so that they move with her. So cute and creative

Last year Emma was a witch and Aiden was a ninja. I don't have a clue what they'll be this year. I've been looking at Pinterest for ideas but still haven't seen anything they like. There's still lots of time so I don't think I should be panicking just yet. Emma was thinking about LaLaLoopsy. I may have to dust off my sewing machine and see what I can come up with. :)

My son, so far, wants to wear the same costume he wore last year. While that saves me money, it's so boring...

He was a Chuggington chugger last year..Brewster to be exact.

My dad is coming to visit in October. He wants to take the baby to a pumpkin patch. I guess we will.

I went 'anti-Halloween' several years ago, when we had too many rude people trick o treating in the neighborhood.
the little ones in costume are cute.

Luke wants to be a pumpkin, lol... I'm not sure why though. I may ask Priscilla to wear her Cinderella costume, so she can "match" :)

This reminds me so much of my first paper scrapbook page. It looks very similar except that we didn't have kids back then, so the page was of our cat. LOL!

My 5 year old boy wants to be Toad from the Mario games (No not Mario, that would be WAY too easy) My 3 year old wants to be a monster princess. This is going to be interesting. Looking for ideas for the new baby girl she'll be 1 month old.

Last year my boy was an awesome dinosaur. My mom made the costume for my brother when I was little. She was way more amazing than I'll ever be!

My girl was in a black cat costume my mom also made and I wore when I was her age. Too bad she had an ear infection for Halloween. She was a sad girl :(

When my kids were little, I made their costumes. I saw this idea on Pinterest last night and thought it was creative and cute:

We're the same way - we hide! We've had so many rude people banging down the door... it doesn't help that we live right by an elementary school & high school, so families meet up in the parking lots there to trick or treat through our area instead of their own.

But this year we might dress up the furry-babies for photos for their grandparents. My mom's been pinning stuff on pinterest, hinting to me LOL I almost bought our dog a uniform that matches my husband's... but I think we'll do some kind of theme with her and the guinea pigs.

My kids were super cute as Batman and Batgirl last year. This year we will have Spiderman and Spidergirl.

Seeing this photo makes me realize how much my kiddos have grown this year. Cindy has long hair now and is losing her pudgy cheeks/chin. Kaden has gotten taller and lost 2 teeth!

Awwwww!!!! Neither Bubbles or Sparkles are crested though :( I'm really really tempted to figure out how to make them green pigs from Angry Birds though LOL! The grandparents would understand the Angry Birds reference.
