We do a family costume every year ever since we had our first child. see 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012. This might sound crazy but I cannot for the life of me remember what we dressed up as last year? I looked through my blog posts and can’t find any posts! Then I realized, my dad passed away 2 months before Halloween and it’s been a blur for about 3-4 months after he passed away so I am not that surprised after all. Anyone remember what we were? LOL(I hate typing LOL but I use it all the time).
We almost didn’t dress up as a family this year because all of my kids wanted to be something completely different from each other. My oldest wanted to be a warrior, my second daughter a Greek goddess and my youngest wanted to be a baby chick. I almost caved in but then I sat them down and told them how much it meant to be to dress up as a family and they’re getting older, with my oldest almost in Jr. High and she wouldn’t want to dress up as a family then so I need at least this year for all of us to dress up as a family. And that they can dress up whatever they want next year, but that I was not ready to let this stage go yet this year. They understood and were so sweet and immediately agreed.
So here is our costumes for 2018! It might just be our last year which breaks my heart! But maybe I will make all of our costumes again next year if they agree to do a family costume? We will see!
We are obviously the characters from The Beauty and the Beast! Halloweencostumes.com was kind enough to provide our costumes. They make exclusive costumes too just for their site like my French feather duster costume, I told my kids I didn’t want to dress up as The Beauty and the Beast theme since what would I be? I didn’t want to be the clock or the Prince! But then I saw this costume and I changed my mind and agreed to do this theme.
