Even before Luke was born, Drew and I dressed up on Halloween. In fact, there has not been one year since we have been together that we did not dress up in costume. When I was still working outside the home, I absolutely loved trying to plan group-themed costumes with my co-workers. I look at the holiday as an awesome excuse as an adult to dress up in costume and pretend. It makes me feel a little like a kid again.
It is entertaining to look back at previous year's costume choices.
|One year our office had a bad mouse problem. So, some in our department got together and dressed up as mice. One of the guys (not pictured) that was also in our department dressed up as the Orkin man. (I believe this was October 2010.)|
|Our little monkey--October 2009|
|Luke with his cousin, Mitchell, that same year.|
|We trick or treated with Luke's friend, Krystal, that year. This was how she hugged him. So cute!|
|The next year, Abbey joined us in costume. Abbey and I were little fairies. Drew brought out the batman costume once again, to join his crime-fighting partner, Robin.|
|Our family did the Wizard of Oz theme this year (2014). My parents even joined us as the wicked witch and the Tin Man. Luke was the cowardly lion and Abbey was my adorable little toto. I was Dorothy and Drew was the scarecrow.|
One of Luke's friends had a birthday party on Halloween night this year. So, we went to their house for a little party and then did some trick or treating as a big group. We had a great time with friends.
This year, we decided to dress up in a Super Mario Brothers theme. Drew was Luigi, I was Mario, Luke was Wario and Abbey was Princess Peach.
|The Princess on her throne.|
I wonder what our costume choice will be next year. No matter what it is, it will be accompanied by lots of family fun!
