JFF What Are Your Kids for Halloween?

Amanda got me thinking, plus when I walked into Costco today and saw the costumes, I knew its time to start looking.

Im not sure what my daughters are going to be. My 6 year old mentioned she wanted to be Rapunzel (Lame) hopefully she will change her mind. Not sure what my little baby girl will be yet, cute as a button Im sure. But my 3 year old son is going to be Joe Dirt. "Thats why Mama call you Dirt!" I freaking crack up whenever I think about it. We are going to dress him all Redneck like with a little mullet! I cannot WAIT!

Do you know what your kids are going to be yet?

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

LOL!! Cheryl, yall are slackin!! We are in our second week of school! ;) Hop to it! hahaha!

I would never tell her I thought it was lame, shes just more creative than that.

Thanks for sharing Ladies, these are toooo cute! Julie W., your son sounds like an adorable genius! You guys are going to have so much fun!

Last year we were all greek Gods.
I wanted my hubby to be Mercury, with gold lame' shorts and golden booties. Yeah he said Not no, Hell NO!!! So he was Poseidon.

I have no idea what we are doing this year.
My kids go to the thrift store and find stuff or into the basement and put stuff together. I have only bought one costume, Madeline.

I think this year we should go as Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Fence.
I can make tshirts with Pumpkin 1 on the front and on the back have The first one said Oh my! It's getting late.

We do Trunk or Treat in the church parking lot and will decorate the Prius with orange table cloths and a green bucket, got that yesterday, and have the little kids decorate little pumpkins with permanent markers.

Oh and our first day of school was cancelled because of the earthquake. So they start Thursday

My 5 yo daughter wants to be a fairy princess. Last year she was an ice skater. My 4 yo daughter wants to be the same thing she was last year - Iron Man. She totally loves him! And not the Iron Man girl costume - she has the "boy one". She also has accessories, the light up hand thing and mask. My husband is going to put our 4 month old son (will be 6 months) in the baby bjorn and go as Zack Galafanakis from The Hangover. (Our son's name is Tyler, which was what the baby's name was in the movie...I know I am so lame - the things I have time and care to know!)

We're going as the Scooby-Doo bunch... my daughter is Daphne, my son is Shaggy & I'm Velma. They want my sister to be a ghost. :) We make our own costumes with things found at Goodwill & thrift stores.

First year, my son was a frog (my choice).
Second year, he was a lion (free outfit hand-me-down. He was adorable).
Third year, he chose to be Woody from Toy Story. He ended up being more a 'cowboy' but I made him a vest just like Woody's and had a yellowish plaid shirt and jeans and he had a cowboy hat. So he thought he was Woody.
This year - he hasn't said what he wants to be. I guess I should be collecting good-sized boxes and foil as he is TOTALLY into robots (We watched Iron Giant last month 20 times it seems. This week we're watching Short Circuit "Number 5 is Alive!" We rent Wall-E from the library all the time). But he also likes dogs. A dog would be simple. But he has no idea who Scooby-Do is. Maybe Marmaduke though.

My 8 year old wants to be a vampire her first ''non-cute'' or ''non-pretty'' thing.Im super excited, the non cutesy costume is imo a milestone.

Im going to get a little lab coat and safety glasses for my two year old (she will be three by then) and we are just going to let her keep her "bed head" and spray it wilder....and make her a mad scientist.

She has the most hilarious bed head hair, curly, blond and super wild!

my 4 year old wants to be Storm from X-Men (we've been watching the cartoon), which I think I could easily make with sweats, felt, and a sheet, but my husband thinks that's not "authentic" enough. I think he's being too picky for a 4 year old's costume.

Of course, yesterday she wanted to be Rapunzel, so who knows by Halloween? :-)

We;re going to make my son Thomas the train. He's obsessed. He won't wear a big boxy costume, so I'm going to have to get creative in making it.

His costume was SO freakin' expensive last year he's wearing it again this year. He's only four so I think he'll be FINE with being Lighting McQueen again.

We were just looking last night. Glad I'm not the only one on top of it early this year!

My 3.5 year old son wants to be The Flash. My 2 year old daughter's I am still picking one last time. I think she is probably going to wear a pumpkin tutu dress and a cute headband or bow to match.

My husband and I ususally dress up too, but by the time Halloween rolls around this year I will be close to 8 months pregnant...so we are skipping it this year!

We're Halloween fanatics, so the discussion has already begun! I'm pretty sure my youngest is going as Scooby Doo (although he keeps saying Daphne, which would CRACK ME UP!) It's hard to tell if he wants to be Daphne or has a thing for Daphne, so we'll see ;-)

The oldest -5 -surprised and delighted me with the traditional vampire request! He's always been a superhero or Star Wars character -one year a lion and once a cop, but I'm excited about his vampire costume. I've also found an AWESOME lady vampire dress with bats all over it that I'm getting for this year. I may also dress as Velma at some point to go with Scooby Doo. I wish I could talk the oldest into being Fred and my husband into being Shaggy -then the youngest could go as Daphne and we have a dog, but I will never be able to pull that off!

I can tell you what he's NOT going to be:

Ezzo from Assassins Creed II

I told he he had to decide by July if he wanted to be Ezzo because the sewing will take FOR-ev-ER.

My daughter is like me, a planner.

Last February, my daughter said she wanted to be a mermaid for Halloween and this past Halloween that was still what she wanted to be. This year, she's most likely going to be Fancy Nancy. It will allow her to dress up and still be a storybook character (some schools require that and since she's attending a catholic preschool this year I know they won't want spooky things).

Well because I spent 50 dollars already on my oldest ballet recital costume and she didn't want to go on stage (stage fright) I'm gonna try to convince her that she would be cute as a baby duck for Halloween, but she already told me she want to either be Little Mermaid ( she is in love with her right now) or Strawberry shortcake. My youngest, who will be 3 said she want to be Kiki from The Fresh Beat Band. But that's kind of boring. So well look for something more exciting. Before I picked their costumes, but now, they are getting picky.

I think my daughter is pretty set on being a fairy. We walked into Party City the other day and she was enthralled with all the costumes. She's way into fairies, etc. right now and picked out a fab pair of rainbow wings! Now I have to find the rest of the costume to put together. Not sure what my son will be, he'll be 2 next month so I still get to choose his costume! I'm going to be a candy corn, again. I bought this awesome kids costume, it's a giant foam candy corn and it was on clearance through Oriental Trading Co., got it for $4!!! It's kind of hilarious and lots of kids comment on it and give me props!

Halloween must be on the brain!! I'm not sure what my son will be. First he wanted to be a toilet. Then, thankfully he changed his mind! Then it was a dragon, then it was a monster, now it's the devil. So I guess we will have to wait and see. He is into being scary, so I'm sure that will be his theme no matter what he decides :-)

What a fun question! My son is 7 1/2 and has been planning THIS years costume since Last Halloween! Last year he was Darth Vader and I was Princess Leia. I am a teacher, so I do dress up and he wanted us to "match".

THEN when he found out I was pregnant he has been planning costumes for both him and the baby ever since! He has been growing his air out so it is longish so he can be Anakin Skywalker and he wants the baby to be an Ewok! She will be about 4 months old at the time. I really was leaning toward something like a daisy or a lady bug for her, but think I may go with the Ewok thing. ALthough, I think a Baby Princess Leia would be cute!

His other idea he is toyign wiht is being Michael Jackson when he is turning into the Werewolf in the Thriller video. I like that one better (more original) , but I will leave it up to him.

I do find it amusing that he has been planning this for so long and takes it so seriously that he thought months ahead to grow his hair out for Anakin. He also wants me to dye it brown and "make it curly" like Anakin's. Maybe some temporary hair dye...we'll see!

My dd has been a vampire bat baby, witch (numerous times), zombie cheerleader and last year she was Jessie from Toy Story. She has the red hair, freckles and big eyes so she looked just like her, everyone we visited loved it as she kept shouting YeeHaw in a voice just like Jessie. (think she had been practicing) This year she wants to be Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz or Anne of Green gables (red hair again) :-)
