Halloweens Past

We have our costumes ready for Halloween this year and I am THRILLED that the boys have, once again, allowed me to coordinate their costumes so that we are "themed." The costumes were a CINCH this year! I feel certain that this is my last year being able to have much say in what they choose, so I'm considering it a win! I thought we'd travel down memory lane before we get to the big day!

Halloween 2009
Sweet Baby James was just 11 days old and was so sweet in his bear costume. I picked it up at Carter's about a month before he was born. We never went anywhere, but I dressed him up for just a minute anyway.

Halloween 2010
A skeleton this year for a one-year-old James. His costume was a pajama set. We went to our church's trunk-or-treat, but didn't do any trick-or-treating.

Halloween 2011
James was a two-year-old monkey this year and he had Halloween at preschool, our trunk-or-treat, and we went trick-or-treating with our friends, the Blacks. 

Halloween 2012

Baby Will joined us this year as an 8-month-old dragon to James' 3-year-old knight. This was my favorite year of ALL. Aren't they precious?

Halloween 2013

Another brothers-coordinated year! Peter Pan and Captain Hook! James was just barely four and Will was 20 months old. James' costume was straight from Disney's website and Will's was handmade by me.

Halloween 2014

Mickey and Goofy! These were cute, too! James was five and Will was two-and-a-half. I think it was apparent that Mickey loved Goofy!

Halloween 2015

We were Batman and Robin obsessed at our house the previous year, so it made perfect sense to play the crime-fighting duo for Halloween! Will was 3.5 and James was 6 and in kindergarten!

Halloween 2016

This year was a coordinated-stretch, but it worked! Theme? Baseball movies! James (7) was Squints from Sandlot and Will (4) was Henry Rowengartner from Rookie of the Year. We watched Rookie of the Year ONE MILLION times in 2016. He was OBSESSED. The Cubs won the World Series just after Halloween so that was an added bonus for his costume!

I can't wait to share our costumes this year! We're ready to Trick or Treat!
