Today we picked up the kids 2017 Halloween costumes. I know, we are "way early". Both kids knew what they wanted to be, so I figured we get that shopping out of the way. I don't want a repeat of the 2015 Halloween fiasco. And I wanted to get out of the house...
Both Stu monsters have assured me that they will NOT change their minds before October 31. And since we arrived home, they have been in total character. I will be waiting to reveal their costume choices (sorry).
As you well know, I am wildly obsessed with all things Halloween. My countdown has begun... I have started spooking the house, made lists for the Boo Bash, bought several new trinkets and decorations. For today's post, let's stroll down memory lane and check out the Stu monster costumes of the past:
Stu and I went to a grown up Halloween party too... I think we pulled the Mad Hatter and Alice off pretty well.
For Riley's first Halloween, we were once again at Disney.
Reagan was the most adorable Captain Hook. She, like her Mommy, has an affinity for villains. Riley was Tigger. Jackie was the Mad Hatter this year (she borrowed Stu's jacket). Steph was perfectly Belle. Stu and I were tacky tourists or something... not our best year.
Obviously (or I hope), Stu is Voldemort. Reagan was Harry Potter (NOT Hermoine). Riley should have been Dobby, but he flat out refused to wear the pillow case (and I didn't want to argue with a toddler). I was Bellatrix. My parents were dementors.
The family photo above makes me laugh... If it were not for the skeleton hands, it'd be impossible to see my father.
Jackie was an awesome Waldo. She took it upon herself to photobomb as many strangers pictures as possible.
Stephanie was Dr Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb.
Alrighty, that was a lot. Stay tuned for the rest and plenty of more Halloween goodies.
There is little I like more than a holiday! Something about the energy of the day makes me giddy.
