Halloweens past

Growing up I had to be really creative at Halloween time. Lets face it I was the youngest of EIGHT kids, my mom was over it. Never would I get the plastic she-ra outfit with the plastic mask(I'm thankful now).Instead I would rummage thru My sisters closet and see what I would come up with>baby, cheerleader, punk rocker, mime, etc. So now I like to go all out for my boys. Some time its a homemade, sometimes store bought depending on what they want to be. Enjoy my trip down memory lane..........................
Max's 1st Halloween! I was so excited to dress us up/and get free candy again. We were Germans.This year Max was a Monster. I just made a new eye for the costume to jazz it up.
The witch and her toad. Halloween got really fun. Max got into the trick or treating this year.
Now we have Ollie. I made him a little chick costume while Max was a rooster.
Max really wanted be a moustache this year. So we settled for just wearing one. And the first thing that came to mind was copper. So Ollie was our jail bird(totally appropriate).
This year I got a little lazy. We rehashed the monster and Max had to be a bat. Sadly enough I could not find any pictures but the ones below. If anybody has some pictures that they could give me I would greatly appreciate it.
C'mon you gotta love The Mario brothers. They had all the poses down. Once again moustaches. For some reason little boys in moustaches make me giggle.
And now we come upon this year 2008, which I will post tomorrow. Sorry for the long post.

I love Halloween... You are so creative with your boy's costumes. I love the Mario brothers... my favorite was the cop and jail bird. I liked you walk down memory lane. It's fun to see then and now pics.

So cute. I think I might have a treasure for you. Check your email in a few minutes but I think I have a picture of Max in his bat costume. It was taken from my phone so probably not that great of quality, but it's a picture!
