Halloween Costumes

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm linking up with Momfessionals for Show & Tell Tuesday to share our Halloween costumes! I've said before that I never used to like Halloween until we had kids, now I think it's so cute and festive!!

Here we are last year. I was Minnie Mouse, Lila and Owen were Jessie and Buzz from Toy Story, and Grant was Marshawn Lynch (Seahawks player).

Minnie Mouse was a really easy costume to put together. I bought cheap ears from Amazon and a cute little homemade apron from Etsy that was under $20. then I wore a black T-shirt and pants I already had, along with little Mary Janes I also already had. I painted some mouse whiskers and nose on and I was set!

Lila's had some cute costumes over the years too. Here she is as an 18 month old Raggedy Ann ... so cute.

And then as a two year old Cookie Monster! I think Owen will be wearing this costume this year ... recycling at it's finest!!!

This year Lila's going to be ... Elsa. Hahah. She already has the dress, wig, shoes and gloves so really we don't need anything for her. Hopefully we can keep her wig on a little better.

Grant is going to be Olaf the snowman from Frozen!! I bought him an adult XL on Amazon and it is like capri pants on him (he's 6'5). Hilarious.

I am going to be a simple witch! I bought this little tutu skirt on Etsy. I'm going to pair it with a black shirt, a little witch hat headband, and some fun black and purple striped tights (both from Amazon). I may need to wear the tights over leggings or something because I'm not sure this tutu will appropriately cover the old bum, but we'll see. Ha!

Spooooky hat with black spiders on the veil - eeeek!

We're excited Halloween is on a Saturday this year so we can start trick or treating earlier without racing home from work and scrambling to get everyone ready. Hopefully it doesn't rain!



  1. I love that the whole family dresses up that's my goal when we have kids. My husband would love the Marshawn Lynch idea hah!

  6. I love your costumes! Lila is such a cute cookie monster, that really should be what Sophie is this year because she loves cookies. But she's going as a sushi roll.
