my teenage son with friends went to see the blue men group. Anyone familiar with them…….When Halloween came, of course they decided to dress up as the blue men group. Easy, (dark clothes, bald hair cap, blue smink) and with great effect!

I don’t really like dressing up myself but it is so fun to dress them. The first year my son was born he was a banana and my daughter was a monkey. Last year my daughter was rainbow brite and my son was twink. This year they are going to be a rock band. https://www.dropbox.com/s/2zqu14e5824m2ik/302560_2564336308675_1853708950_n.jpg

We just need to find a suitable Scooby Doo.

Or you guys dress as a bunnies and your baby could be the carrot. Feel free to steal my idea of making her a monkey and you be the Mama (frilly apron, hair in bun etc.,) and your husband can the doctor.

I always love to see them. This year my two and half year old and almost one year old are going to be the monkeys jumping on the bed and my husband and I are essentially going as ourselves: me as the Mama and he will be the doctor. I’m going to wear a frilly apron and he’s going to wear his lab coat. We might put some bandages on the kids heads.
Another year I want to dress my daughter as Annie, my son as Sandy the dog, my husband as Daddy Warbucks and me as Grace Farrell.
Peanuts costumes would be cute and easy too, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and Linus.

This year my itty bitty family is having a very tongue in cheek approach to costumes. My husband and I are going as ghosts, while our daughter will be a ghost buster :)

I love coordinating costumes. The more, the merrier! There will be plenty of years where the kids will want to pick their own, but as long as mom gets to pick, go for it!

MY oldest (6 then) was a firefighter and our youngest (then 2) was a dalmation! Precious!

I think I’ve decided they will be superheros – specifically superman and supergirl.
But once they can walk next year… ooh, I’m coming back to this post to make a decision.
Thanks so much everyone!

The costumes were front and back cardboard (held together with strings so that they hung from the shoulders), green construction paper, black writing, and some tin foil. My mom made them, so it was obviously super duper easy as she has no crafty skills at all. And “double-mint twins” was kind of funny.
