I’m kind of sad that my kids are getting older (at least at Halloween), because honestly….older kids are no fun on Halloween. Gone are the cute character costumes or plush, huggable dress-ups. Big kids don’t like to be fairy princesses or action heros.
Luckily, I can still enjoy my youngest two on Halloween. At least for another year or two.
AJ’s costume may be my favorite yet. The werewolf mask was quite scary, so I took scissors to the face. Instead of being a scary werewolf, he was a hairy Ewok-Lion-Werewolf Beast. He proudly declared that he got extra candy during the trick-or-treating because he was so cute.
Reese was a cold-but-adorable fairy. Yes, half-way through the night (despite the fact that I warned her that she would be cold and should wear tights and a leotard under her costume) I had to sacrifice my own long sweater to keep her from freezing to death. Such is the life….
As much as I loved each of their costumes separately, it was in putting them together that they really shone.
Beauty and the Beast. Classic.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween and are surviving the kids’ sugar highs.
