Halloweens Past...

I was thinking about our past Halloweens and how much fun I have had getting my kids costumes together. This is the first time in 3 years that we haven't added 1-2 kids to the mix. It feels kind of weird. So here is to years past and, hopefully, a lot more years to come!

2003: The year of the Dog

Milo and Ody. Poor guys. This was back in the day when we actually had time to play with them and care about them. This was as far as our costumes got with them.

2004: The year of the Fat Girl

I didn't dress up for Halloween this year. I just went as a fat, pregnant girl. This is actually 3 months before Aiden and Andrew were even due. Yikes. I was large and I just got bigger with each pregnancy.

2005: The year of Dr. Seuss

Since I didn't find out what I was having with Aiden and Andrew, we would call them Thing 1 and Thing 2. So what better costume than that!

Trent and I actually dressed up this year as an old couple. Check out Trent's baldness. Classic!

2006: The year of Alice in Wonderland

I love themed costumes, so this year we decided that the kids would be so cute as Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum, and Alice. My mom did a superb job on the costumes. Trent and I were the Queen of Hearts cards.

My cute little Alice in Wonderland. I love how well the costume came together!

And what can I say about these costumes. They turned out so perfect and I love their big bellies too!

2007: The year of the Spider

Aiden and Andrew really wanted to be the black and red spider man this year, so everyone else's costumes spun off that!

You can tell who is who by how tight the masks are on the head. Since Andrew has a HUGE head his mask was so much tighter. Hilarious!

Little Oakley was a spider princess. I found this costume at Target and fell in love with it! She wasn't very happy to get her picture taken though!

Since they don't make many costume for babies, my mom and I made these spider princess costume for my girls. They turned out pretty cute!

This year is not exciting. The kids have their "own" minds now, so they all got to pick their costumes. They were not to big an my, don't get too excited, you will be disappointed!

I always love the costumes you come up with. But I have to tell you the one thing I remember the most is the Halloween of Alice in Wonderland when you had broken your elbow! It made me laugh thinking about you painting the cards as well as sitting at the insta care laughing so hard at the situation! I am seriously laughing out loud at work. I know it wasn't all that funny that it happened, but I sure thought it was!

I LOVE this post! I love that you have pics to chronical your Halloween costumes. I'm with Jill - Alice in Wonderland was a highlight. Those Tweedle Dee and Dumb costumes are fantastic! I still remember them walking around the Ops Center in their little outfits. So cute! The second highlight? Trent's "old man" head. Classic.
