The Ghost of Halloween Past

These photos are from Halloween TWO YEARS AGO! 2006.




Remy was a red ninja
&
Donny was Captain Jack Sparrow











I'm not really sure what I was.
A mysterious witch?






The boys picked out Texas Homeboy's costume that year.



And we slapped a sombrero on my dad.





Do you dress up with your kids?
I always do.
Do you pick out your spouse's costume for them?
Yep.
Do you visit haunted houses?
I haven't in quite a while but they're fun!

I wanted to dress up this year, but I wanted to do the couple costumes. I wanted to be a pregnant nun and TNT be a priest. But with me working in an office and him selling tools I don't think people would get the whole picture if we weren't together.

My sis and her friend are going as a pair of testicles!

We typically don't dress up...maybe when the kids get older.

And, a big no on the haunted houses...I don't like being scared.

I don't dress up with my kids, but I would like to, so maybe one year....
I have visited a haunted house or two in my time, but not recently.
My daughter is quite creative with her costumes, we spend forever going around all the costume places and then she ends up designing her own! This year she is a Jedi and my youngest is going to be tigger. My oldest isn't dressing up this year

I never dress up for Halloween, but The Man does sometimes when he takes the girls trick or treating. Usually something homemade and last minute and fairly hilarious.

And that would be a giant NO to haunted houses. My heart can't take it.

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I usually slap on a kitty ear headband and call that a costume.

No spouse... no picking.

Was SUPPOSED to go to a haunted house with Mr. B but... we just didn't get there.

I used to totally dress up, but the past few years it hasn't really been ideal, so I would slap on a hot pink bobbed wig with pink lepoard spotted ears attached to it, slather on a black spot on my nose and scribble some whiskers on my cheeks and call it good. I would also wear a halloween t and socks. I was soooo stylin'. Not sure if I will do anything tonight. I am soooo not feeling Halloween this year.

Yeah, I know. Party pooper. :p

Happy Halloween!!

Blissful Babe said...

I forgot....
No spouse...but if I had one, no picking. Let him figure it out. I have a hard enough time picking one for myself. Sheesh.

And haunted houses...eh, I like coming home with dry britches. Thanks for thinking of me, though. :)

I need to go back to being more fun and start dressing up. Next year! Those pics are great!!!!!

I will definitely be goig to haunted houses when I know Tristan can handle it. Happy Halloween!!!

Mama Dawg said...

Great costumes!

I usually don't dress up.

Light of my life always picks out her own costumes (except when she was real small).

This year, she's a fairy. I'll post pics when I have them.

Living on the Spit said...

Great photos of your family!!! I really enjoyed the peek inside casa de tangle.

I wore a funny sweatshirt...read my post to see it.

I picked out HWMs costume but he likes to be really creepy scary and that still bothers me.

We try to go to the a haunted hayride and to Busch Gardens Hallo-Scream events. I love this time of year.

Did the yellow hat!!! Happy Candy Day!

gingela5 said...

My husband never dresses up! I occassionally do it just depends on the year and what mood I'm in! :)

PAPATV said...

Do you eat all the candy in two days?
I do.

Kit Kat
Snicker's
Reeses's Peanut Butter Cup
Fireball's
Sugar Stix

Put them in my bag, please.

Kat said...

I have never dressed up with the kids. And today I had lunch with Madalyn at school...there were lots of moms there in costume. I had no idea...

Michael doesn't dress up.

And I don't do haunted houses. I don't like to be scared...

Karen said...

Cool costumes!!!!

My favourite is Capt Sparrow...but then I'm a bit biased in that direction... :-)

I dressed up last year .. as a Witch.

I'd be picking out J's costume if he was going to be wearing one..

yep, I love haunted houses. Didn't go his year though. Halloween sort of sneaked up on me..

Shannon said...

I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was in the 6th grade... I get a Halloween tee from Old Navy every year.

Shane does not dress up, either.

And I don't do haunted houses. For me, Halloween is all about the candy. Don't wanna be scared!

remy is so little! cute!

im dressing up as bella cullen and i was going to make my boyfriend be edward, but that just seemed wrong (esp since he didn't read the book... he's a law student and as im sure you know, doesn't have time for fun reading) so he's wearing the "second amendment" shirt (if you havent seen it go here: http://fashionablygeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/05/the-second-amendment.jpg) so i sewed him bear arms to wear under the shirt :)

Brooke said...

It depends on the intensity of the haunted house. Usually no. I am a big wuss! I will dress up with my kids when I have some. :) We (my hubby and I) usually dress up if we have a party to go to. Fun stuff! I have never seen a jack sparrow before. Love the eyes!

imbeingheldhostage said...

I don't dress up on halloween anymore-- it seems like all my energy is gone by the time I have everyone dressed. What were you this year???

Happy Halloween!

Twisted Fencepost said...

I haven't costumed up in a long time. I'm thinking of having an adult costume party next year.
And yes I LOVE haunted houses!!!

Jen said...

next year, Jeff and I are so dressing up with the kids.

Trannyhead said...

I want to dress up with the kids - and I REALLY want to do a dorky theme dress-up. You know, like the ketchup, mustard, and pickles or something. That would be totally hawt.

Susie said...

I sometimes dress up with the kids. One year, I was Dora's grandma (guess what she was:-).

Captain Dumbass said...

I dressed up as an unemployed stay-at-home-dad. I think I nailed it.

Marrdy said...

Everyone looks great. Love that sombrero on your dad! I was going to dress up but things took a sour turn this morning and I lost my enthusiam. Bummer.

SheSue said...

I haven't dressed for quite a while. I've gone through stages. Before kids I did dress up parties. During kids I had a blast creating their costumes, now after kids I am looking into doing the dress-up thing again. Fav costume I saw tonight was Edward Scissorshands.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Little one's double fisted with swords eh?

Tiffany said...

Rhea, these are SO cute!!!

Hairline Fracture said...

Cute pictures! I don't have the energy (or extra $$) to dress up along with the kids. But we had a good time anyway!

sassy stephanie said...

Girl, you are so like me. I know what you are. You are a witch that later found a cute sparkly red mask you just had to wear. I'd do something like that!

I ALWAYS dress up. Maybe not always something super fancy, but always something. Halloween is my very favorite holiday. I was at a carnival last night and can't get over the amount of adults that do NOT dress up. Who can pass up being a kid?

anita doberman said...

I try to dress up, but this year I didn't make it...too busy trying to get the five girls all ready. I dressed the baby :) so that counts :)
I love Halloween because we didn't have it in Italy and I feel I need to catch up on all the years I didn't get candy....

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I sometimes dress up with the kids. I dressed hubby up one year. Haunted houses scare me!

Angie's Spot said...

I haven't dressed up with my kids yet, but I'm going to next year. For sure! And my hubby would rather walk on glass than dress up. Not his style. I don't do haunted houses because my heart can't take it. I don't watch scary movies either. Yeah, I'm a wimp.
