What are you gonna be for Halloween?

Amber wants to know!

Today's Friend Makin' Monday topic is about Halloween.
Miss Layla is going to be Tinkerbell.

She wanted to be a dog and then a lamb. She changed her mind a million times and finally we settled on Tinkerbell.
Whew...thank goodness.
I didn't want her to be a dog or a lamb.
Hayden really can't decide for himself.

Hayden in 2008

Last year Hayden was a turtle.
He wore the costume for all of two minutes and was not feeling the whole turtle thing.

This weekend we were going through old costumes thinking of what he should be. For some reason we just couldn't think of anything sooooo Gary thought about using the turtle costume again in a different way. Since the booties and hat don't fit, it works perfectly that he wears a red cap and bandanna and is:

As for Gary and I~I'm not sure.
We usually dress up, but it is a last minute thing. Layla was a ladybug one year and Gary dressed up as an exterminator...ha! The next year she was a cheerleader and he was a coach. Think I can get him to be Peter Pan this year?? heehee...NO WAY will that happen!
Have a great Monday!!

I love the lady bug and exterminator!!! That is way too cute :) One year, my dad and all my friends dressed up like the Addams Family.

Happy FMM!!

I LOVE the fact that your husband has matched your daughters costumes before- what a great daddy/daughter memory :)

Alli said...

Cute! What a great idea to turn it into Franklin. I love Franklin!

Drew's Mom said...

What a clever idea to turn the turtle into a Franklin costume. I love the Tinkerbell idea... sure wish I had a daughter to dress all girly =)

That is one cute turtle! Good idea to use the costume again for another go round!

Have fun!

He could be the more "manly" Captain Hook!

I love the Franklin idea! and your daughter will look so cute in her Tinkerbell costume. That's cute how your husband has coordinated with her costume in the past.

How CUTE!!

I just have no idea what we are going as... eek!

Girl... love your hair, and the cute photo on your sidebar!! C-UTE!

I can't wait to see how the Franklin costume turns out! SUPER cute idea! You could let your hubby be Captain Hook...that would go with Tinker Bell and it is a little more manly than Peter Pan!

The turtle costume is beyond adorable!

Emily said...

Peter Pan - LOL! Tinkerbell is a cute costume idea...Melody choose Sleeping Beauty.

Carrie said...

Oh you are so creative! Can't wait to see what you two decide :) I was the Little Mermaid last year...haha! Emily can never make up her mind either...but I think she's decided on a pink leopard this year :) We'll see about Alex, yet...since I'm making it...gulp! haha!

Heather said...

The girls are matching leopard cats, it's so cute. AJ , probably something Star Wars, I gotta order it today!!

Kelli said...

Aw Tinkerbell and Franklin...too cute. Great way to use last year's costume too. My kids are going to be super heros.
