I love dressing up for Halloween. I just love it! I especially love dressing up as a family, in theme. We have been doing it ever since my son was 2. Sadly, it’s getting harder and harder every year because my older boys don’t like the ideas that I come up with. This year they said that they wanted to dress up as Mine Craft….. luckily I was able to convince them to dress up as something else.
So here are the past family costumes that we have done. I’m going to start from the earliest and go backward. Trust me, there are some funny costumes and you might want to read the whole thing. I was a little crazy way back when.
Last year- 2011 Angry Birds. These were a hit! And the first time I ever made everyone’s costumes all for scratch.
2010- Star Wars. I had a baby two weeks after this…. these are not pretty pictures of me. So in case you don’t know who we are: Yoda, Darth Vader, Anakin, Luke and Padme
2009- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This is my favorite one so far, mostly because I love TMNT. I got rid of these yellow skinny jeans and now I’m kicking myself for throwing them out!
The 4 turtles!
2008- Go Diego Go. For this one, we actually dyed my son’s hair, with real hair dye. It was weird to see him with dark hair. The day after Halloween I buzzed it and within a month it was blonde again. We are Baby Jaguar, Daddy Jaguar, Diego and Alicia.
2007- Batman and Robin
Sorry these were taken with my phone out of my scrapbook, digital cameras weren’t as popular back then….
2006- Sulley and Mike from Monsters Inc. What do you do when you’re 8 months pregnant around Halloween?
You turn your belly into a costume!
2003- Our first Halloween as a married couple. Care Bears. In a way a feel a little bad for making him go as a Care Bear, it’s just a little girly. But he was a trooper and put up with me. Seriously, we look so young in this picture!!
And last of all, I have to share this one with you because it might be my craziest costume ever.
2002- Freshman year of college. Batman crew. I went as the Joker. And went all out, with the green hair and white face.
See how cute everyone else looks, and how normal? I don’t know what I was thinking. I’m pretty sure I came up with the idea to be Joker, I volunteered. Wow, just wow. But it was an awesome night and we had so much fun. We even went to Walmart and got pictures done. Yup, everyone was staring at us! It was awesome though!
And there you have it, the 10 years of Halloween of our family. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
I would love for you to follow along
