"" The Exhausted Mom: What Are You Wearing for Halloween?

October 30, 2011

What Are You Wearing for Halloween?

I LOVE Halloween!!  I love the decorations, the make-believe, the haunted houses (even though they scare me), and I LOVE dressing up!!

When I was little, my mom made all of my costumes.  A witch, a lion, and Pebbles from The Flintstones...anything I ever wanted.

Now that I'm a mom of boys, they want very specific costumes and I can't really make them to their distinct possibilities.  My costume making skills are going to waste.

Luckily, my husband enjoys dressing up as much as I do.  That's where my creative juices get to go on Halloween.  Unluckily, he is the one with the ideas and he doesn't usually come up with anything until about a day before Halloween!  That only gives me 24 hours to pull together a costume!

Here are some of our costumes from past Halloweens...

Lucy and Ricky (2002)

Shrek and Fiona (2009)

Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl (2010)

I take our personal clothes and mix it with some magic to create our new personas!  Not to mention I always try to do something a little cruel to my husband....like wear make-up or tights!  He's a good sport, though!

This year, we are going to be Megamind and Minion....can't wait!  Pictures will follow soon!!

Happy Halloween!
