I am fully aware that October 31st has come and gone but it is never to late for some Halloween fun! My family has always been a big fan of dressing up for Halloween and doing the traditional Trick-or-Treating. Some of our costumes as children included Raggedy Ann and Andy, Clowns, Vampires, A Fairy Princess, a lion and even the Coneheads from the movie “Coneheads”. My brother and I have kept the tradition alive in our own families.
My husband, Michael, and I love Halloween. We usually go all out, decorating the house with clowns, fake blood, blow ups and music (see video below of Halloween 2013). Michael even keeps a clown mask in the garage year round to give me a good scare every once and a while. This year we failed and didn’t put up a single decoration due to having a little precious 5 month old drama queen but that didn’t stop us from dressing up the little princess. We were planning to be in Texas for Halloween, so I knew we would not be taking her out for Trick or Treating this year. I couldn’t decide what to dress her as because I wanted her to be comfortable and we also have a diaper problem. Therefore, I knew I would need two costumes. I decided to go with a cute kitten and a Whoopee Cushion costume. If you have to buy a backup Halloween costume then it is only appropriate to buy a Whoopee Cushion costume. It does not matter how old you are a Whoopee Cushion never gets old! I am sure that Whoopee Cushion photo will be in her high school yearbook one day but I just couldn’t resist….poor girl has no idea
My brother has a insanely weird obsession with candy and he has passed this down to his son, Riley. This was Riley’s first year going Trick or Treating and once he figured out what it all meant, he had a new favorite Holiday…..well for 30 minutes until he was over it like every other toddler I am sure. Jon and Amanda dressed Riley up as Mickey Mouse because it is his favorite TV show. It is one of the few things that keeps Riley’s attention. Mickey Mouse wasn’t so happy in his costume but he enjoyed the candy after the night was over!
Tell us about your costume or your kid’s costume!
