Happy Halloween

What kind of fun things do you do at your house with your kids for Halloween? Do you make your costumes and where do you get your inspiration?

I actually do make most of our costumes and over the past 14 years, most years we have had a theme until last year. My oldest stopped dressing up and somehow all the kids wanted to do their own thing, which I was fine with. I honestly like it both ways, them and individualized. Glad we have done both. this year, my son is a Minecraft mummy, so it was back to cutting squares like I did last year for his Creeper costume. My girls all decided to make life easy on me this year and all wanted to be ballerinas, so I just went and bought them all actual ballet clothes! :)

Well, you've already seen my Halloween projects for this year, but here are a few fun projects and costumes from years past. My favorite costumes were the year we were the Claus family and the year my kids were the 3 Musketeers. I need to get more pics up of the years since then...jawas with one little R2D2, bugs, a beekeeper, and an Entomology club kid, and an angel, Minnie Mouse, a cabbage patch doll, and a Creeper.

Hope you have a fun night with your kiddos!

haha Thanks! Cam was only like 6 weeks old there. We dumped the cookies all around and tried to make him hold one. He was a HUGE baby! :)
