Halloween 2013



I always said that if I had 4 kids, I would dress them up as something fun for Halloween. Something matching. Since this is (probably) the only year I will get to do it, we did!


Now I must admit, I chose the costumes. The kids had no idea what I was talking about when in July I started talking about Halloween. We had to rent the movie and watch it. They kind of got into it.

Butterfly decided it was a great costume when I showed her the ruby red slippers I was thinking of buying her. She was a big push for her brothers to come on board.



Professor decided it would be a good costume when I asked him if he wanted to be the Tin Man or the Scarecrow. He really liked the idea of being all silver. So he was THRILLED with the costume when it came. You can’t really tell in these pictures because he was feeling a little sick that night.



Pirate never really came on board with the idea. He just didn’t really care. His costume also was the one that didn’t really work all the time. He kept rubbing off his nose, loosing his hat, and complaining it was itchy.


I like this shot even though it’s out of focus. It shows his latest tooth fairy visit and it makes him look so impish. I love it!


Cowboy, well, didn’t have a choice. He was ADORABLE as the lion. Except it was hard to keep his mane on, and then when he discovered his tail, that was hard to keep on too. The big kids kept roaring at him and by the end of the night, he would growl back. Too cute!



Juice dressed up as his Dread Pirate Roberts again, and I went as a dead “mummy” with my friend Lala. It was a crazy day of running around and trick or treating and then we topped the day off with free doughnuts at Krispy Kreme.


A very fun Halloween!

    Why didn’t I get to make Butterfly’s dress? :( My kids were never on board with matching and very outspoken about never doing that. So cute you got to squeeze it in before they could object!

      I wanted you to make her dress but you seemed so busy with the horse heads! Next year, we’ll plan early.
