We are already a week in to our Halloween festivities. Our church, as many do, has a Trunk or Treat night every year. We try our best to get a little creative and for the last 2 years have done family themed outfits.
I know the days of the boys easily agreeing to costumes are numbered. In fact, this is probably the last year for Nate as he already has a Spiderman costume on standby for Halloween night if he chooses.
But while I could, I was able to come up with a family costume with no complaints from any of the boys.
Nate had recently been very interested in the story of the 3 little pigs and the big bad wolf. We took the boys to see a puppet show featuring the story and they also have a cute Melissa & Doug play set they like to play with. Once I mentioned the idea to Nate he was all over it. He insisted that he would be the pig with the straw house, I would be the pig with the stick house and Cole would be the pig with the brick house.
Pig costumes were not easy to find, so I had to get a little crafty. I bought 2 Foofa costumes (from Yo Gabba Gabba) and tucked in the flower neckline. I threw on a pink Lilly lounge jacket & pants...surely the only time me and my boys will be in head to toe pink!
There was a costume parade during the Trunk or Treat and Cole rode in a wagon with his buddy Jack. The ladies that keep the nursery load them in for rides on most Sundays and they all love it!
Now I want to see your costumes! Grab the button above and leave a link to your post in the comments below with your (your kids, dogs, whatever) costume!
I hope it's all treats and no tricks for you this Halloween!
