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.
