Halloween has never been a big holiday at our house, but we like any excuse to have fun as a family. I’m all for dressing up in silly costumes and getting free candy. However, we do not purchase a new costume for each kid every year. I have accumulated a closet of costumes. So a couple of hours before leaving I took all of the kids to the closet and told them what was available in their size. Not the typical American way, but it works for us!
So I took Little Jason through the costumes. I told him, “Well, it looks like you can be Winnie the Pooh, Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, or…”
“A human?” he asked. Totally cracked me up! Yes in fact he was a human for Halloween–strong man Samson!
Faith was not real happy when I told her that the only thing I had in her size was a clown costume. I don’t see anything wrong with a clown, but I guess I’m not 11 and all my friends get to be princesses. I was so happy when I thought of this Mexican Ballet Folklorico dress that a lady in Mexico gave us. She was much happier to be able to tell everyone she was a Mexican dancer!
What fun dress-up clothes you have = )
Hope you got tons of candy!!!!
Wow I can’t believe how big Bobby seems to have got suddenly. It must be cause we don’t normally see pictures of him “full length”.
Your family is so adorable!
I agree that they are adorable!
What is your oldest daughter dressed as?
All of your kids are so cute!!! And they’re lucky to have a mom like you who keeps a closet full of costumes 🙂
Adorable kids and costumes. 🙂 Reminds me, I have to get my grandson’s on the blog.
Fun! I tell my kids if they want to dress up they have to do it with minimal help from mom. I don’t usually buy costumes either. This year my son was an “Indian”, my oldest daughter was a queen, middle daughter a princess and my youngest daughter was a lady bug with a princess crown. The only thing I helped with were the paper crowns, making sure they were the right size.
