With tomorrow being Halloween I thought it would be fun to go through pictures from the kids’ Halloween past. Fun for me at least. This task proved harder than I expected because ALL of my 2009 October pictures had literally vanished from my computer – no idea why. And in my 2010 October folder I found no pictures of BB’s costume at all. Luckily I dug deep into the Mommablogsalot Archives and found what I was looking for (and saved them to my computer!) – hurray! How’s that for blogging power?
So without further adieu, let’s start at the beginning:
2006 : MM’s First Halloween
MM the Pumpkin and his parents, the Pumpkin Farmers
2007: His second Halloween
We went to a little Halloween party with friends – if it isn’t obvious, MM is the little lion.
2008: Halloween Take Three
Our Dan’s first attempt at a homemade costume, MM is the Man in the Yellow Hat.
2009: Our First Halloween as Parents of Two
In keeping with tradition, BB was a Pumpkin – in a ballerina tutu of course
This year MM was a Firefighter – we took the kids Trick or Treating at the Zoo!
Halloween 2010: Matching Costumes Begin
We went trick or treating with neighborhood friends! MM was Mickey Mouse.
BB was Minnie Mouse but this is the only photographic evidence I have of that. When she wasn’t crying she was tucked into a baby carrier sleeping soundly.
Halloween 2011: A hiatus from matching costumes
For her third Halloween BB was a sweet kitten and her brother was Woody from Toy Story
2012: A Whovian Halloween
Meet the Doctor and Amelia Pond: If you understand this picture, we are besties now.
2013: In Which MM Regenerates
Last year MM regenerated in reverse from the 11th Doctor to the 10th. BB wore two different costumes last year – photographed above she was Rapunzel.
But on Halloween night she was a Mermaid Princess. Obviously.
Also, this happened.
On (or after?) Halloween 2014 you will meet The Astronaut (the obvious transition really) and The Fairy Princess. I know you are waiting with baited breath.

The kids have their Halloween parties at school tomorrow. I am so glad that I thought to bring costumes from home, as Halloween is not such a big deal over here.Then we have another party at the British Consulate on Saturday. The kids are getting a lot of wear out of the costumes. Teagan will be Merida and Connor is a ninja. And of course today she asked me for a red wig or for me to dye her hair red so she can be Merida for real. I spent two hours chasing to the two (2!) costume shops in town, only to find the only red wigs they had were scary clown hair. So Teagan is daring to be different and will be a blonde Merida (minus the bow and arrow. That just wasn’t going to end well).
I hope you take lots of pictures!
