Halloween Costume Ideas For Families
Can you believe Halloween is just around the corner? I’m still in denial of how fast this year has gone. Yet I somehow managed to get our family Halloween costumes and take photos before the actual holiday. Say what? Toasting to that. And I’m also super grateful that our little family agreed to wear yet another round of family themed costumes. Ok, let me rephrase that. I bribed my crew into doing it yet again. Let’s see how far I can keep this cheesiness going. But wait, there’s actually a valid explanation behind it all. Just bare with me and keep reading. It’s on the sweet side.
So last year my husband and I compromised with a super hero theme. My husband picked the theme and I got to pick all the outfits. Because marriage is all about compromising, right? 😉 Fast forward to this year. We tossed ideas back and forth for days. Then out of nowhere our kiddo said, “Mom, I want to be Mavis.” You see, for those that are not sure who or what that is, Mavis is a character in the Hotel Transylvania movie. And our daughter, Mia, is hooked on their new Disney TV series. So much so she easily convinced us all to move forward with this theme (she has daddy wrapped around her little finger, ha!) and it definitely got our wheels spinning. My husband found the perfect location to snap some pics, I found all the costumes and thanks to my little sis, we now have another awesome family halloween portrait in the books! Now this is where it gets sweet. I’m making albums for our girls of these yearly portraits so that when they grow up and leave the nest they can look back at them. It’s going to be wild seeing how much they’ll grow and/or change as the years go by and in costumes. I think they’ll get a kick out of them too.
