Sneaky Peeky

I spent the entire week getting Halloween costumes ready for our oldest four.  This is a HUGE thing for me.  Around here, costumes are usually something that get thrown together at the last minute.  I hate Halloween.  Yep…HATE it!  I hate spending money on silly costumes.  I hate dressing up.  (I even hated it as a kid, so this isn’t an adult-onset problem.)  I guess I am the world’s biggest party pooper!

I’m not sure why this year is different.  Maybe I’m loosening up a little??  Whatever the reason, I better get the “Nicest Mom of the Year” award after all the time and energy I put into these costumes!!  Really, though, the kids’ excitement is all I need.  It has been fun to get their input, and it has been equally enjoyable to see how much it torments them to have to try something on a few times!  (Maybe you weren’t aware that I lay awake at nights thinking of ways to torment them?  Hahaha!!!)

Here’s a little sneak peek at what they’ll be wearing this year…




I guess I can move on to Christmas now that I’m done worrying about costumes!


  1. I love the little sneak peeks! Makes me want to take more creative photographs of my own kids.

    Can't wait to see the costumes!
