So true! Our costumes were coordinated when the kids were tiny, but once they started getting strong opinions, it’s been a random assortment of costumes. Which is actually fine by me as well. I just think it’s all good fun!

I really love that image of Maude and Olive. And I love that they spontaneously dressed up like that.

I’m so glad you’re enjoying the new contributors. Me too! It’s fun to have so much great content, and to know that when I have a crazy day and can only write one post, that there will still be tons of great stuff to find here.

As for the short hair, I LOVED it. I wore it that way for years. And the confidence thing is funny, because I swear, wearing it that short makes you feel confident! Even if you weren’t feeling that way to begin with.

Unfortunately they are too old now to want to dress up with their siblings! A couple of my past favorites: we went as the Scooby Doo gang, a cat, mouse and dog, the Three Musketeers, fairies, and M & M’s. This year my 12 year old wants to be Hello Bat Bob. Which is a combination of Hello Kitty, Batman and SpongeBob. She can’t decide so a combo it is!

One year the kids fell in love with plush dalmation costumes at Old Navy while we were supposed to be Back to School Shopping, so my husband dressed as a fireman and I dressed as Cruella. Because you know what Cruella would do if she wanted “MORE PUPPIES?” She’d marry a fireman. The kids loved it! Last year they wanted to be superheros so we were the Incredibles. This year my son wanted to be a raccoon and my husband wanted to be a lumberjack, so we’re going as a lumberjack family who adopts a raccoon in the wild. I love Halloween.

We affectionately call them Monkey and Monster, so a friend suggested we do King Kong and Godzilla :)

For us it seems to be a matter of what we have on hand and more importantly- THEIR wishes of what they want to be. I think Halloween is for kids- leave it up to them!

She dressed her son as a fireman and put the girls in dalmatian puppy pj’s and hats with little blackened noses and plunked them in a wagon decorated like a fire engine. Super cute! Nowadays, firemen our firepeople…boys and girls!!!
BOO!

We did end up with several Harry Potter students in our family last year, but that wasn’t due to any coordination efforts on my part… I’ve seen Raggedy Ann & Andy, Scooby Doo characters, and my favorite was when our bishop (church leader)’s family all went as various chess pieces, but he just wore a suit (since he was the bishop, after all).
