Halloween Memories - Really Just an Excuse to Show off My Kids

I really enjoy Halloween.  Apart from all the candy (which is huge in it's favour), I love to see all the kids in their cute costumes.  Which is why it was one of the first things I was looking forward to doing when I finally had a child. So even though E was only 4 months old at the time and there was no way she was going out trick or treating at that stage, I couldn't resist dressing her up. 



You can tell how thrilled she was. ;)

Of course the following year I got ambitious and was determined to make a Halloween costume myself.  Monster Inc was big then and since my little E was (a) adorable and (b) had a full head of hair, I figured she'd be a perfect fit for Boo from Monsters Inc.  Of course, I didn't want her to be just an ordinary Boo with pigtails in a pink nighty, oh no, that would have been too easy. Instead, I had to devise a Boo in her Monster costume instead. 

While I'll admit it did turn out pretty cute, I was disappointed because how I pictured doing it, didn't work out at all.  Plus I had a hard time purchasing supplies.


Freakin cute, right?

Of course, back then we had all sorts of spare time to get all creative with our pumpkins.






Now we settle for more simpler and quicker pumpkins.


Although life has gotten more hectic now that we have 3 children, Halloween is just as much fun as it was when we just had one.  Cause now we get to see three cute kids in costumes, instead of just one.



Happy Halloween!
