Never Think About What to Make for Dinner for the Next Two Months with My Lazy Cooking Bundle
Easy family Halloween costumes.
Remember when you used to get the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I was pretty sure I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age but I sure had fantasies that were in no way related to blackboards and chalk. Last weekend I got to act out one of those fantasies.
Growing up, every year my sister and I had a great debate about our Halloween costumes. Mostly I wanted to be a princess but for some reason that costume never materialized.
I’ll admit to masquerading as a hump-backed old woman complete with warts. Then there were the years when I morphed into a beautiful belly dancer (loved getting to wear eye make-up), Annie Oakley, a mermaid (I could hardly walk in the costume!).
Heck, once I was even Zorro—that mask, cape, and sword combo does some spectacular transforming!
That’s the fun of Halloween. You can try out all sorts of personas.
So last weekend Ryan and I took the boys to pick out Halloween costumes and we had a blast! Our whole family ended up with costumes.
Talk about making family memories—I think Ryan and I had even more fun than the boys!
We ended up going with a family theme. I finally got to unleash my inner princess…
…with Ryan as my own handsome, hero knight. Amazing what a little hair and over-sized pecs can do for a guy!
He has to save me daily from tough little dragons.
When those little toughies saw me in my dress, Dax’s jaw dropped and he said, “Rowen, Mom IS a princess!” As if it was new information. Huh!
We had so much dressing up — I can’t wait for next Halloween!
What does your family do for Halloween?
