    From my experience, you get to choose their Halloween costumes up until about age 3….then they become very opinionated about what they want to be. If left to her own devices, my little girl would be some version of a princess EVERY year! LOL 🙂

    You should have the boys dress up as a barbershop quartet!

    Can't wait to see what you choose. I've loved seeing all of your boys decked out every year – it will be hard to beat those dogs though, they were pretty darn cute!

    This year Peyton is almost three and Brady is almost eight months. Peyton is big for his age and he loves to try and carry Brady around so I've decided to dress Peyton like a monkey this year and Brady will be a banana. Little Money will be carrying a banana for Halloween.
    (Not really carrying … but holding … you get the idea 🙂 )

    That BLT is pretty funny though! I also like the shark! My little guy would probably love that!

    Those are cute ideas. I like the gnome and the sock monkey. Looking forward to seeing the costumes you chose; are you going to give us hints so we can guess, like last year?

    Those are such cute costumes! I love seeing what all the Quad Mamas do with their crews, each year.

    I will say that "Funniest Costume Idea" has to go to Gen McNulty for last year's 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears.' Not only do I still remember it a year later, lol, but I still get the giggles about it.

    My toddler, who is the same age as your boys, is going to be Curious George. And so then we decided that our 6-month old, who is huge, and doesn't fit in the costume from when the toddler was a baby, is going to be the Man in the Yellow Hat.

    I love the costumes you use! It would be so much fun to dress up 4 kids for halloween. 🙂 My son who is 3 was (or is) going to be Knight and I was going to dress up my 5 month old up as a dragon…but, now Luke is saying he wants to be a cow. LOL. so now I might dress the little one as a glass of milk or something. I still dont know! LOL

    She had an authentic Peruvian Costume from Peru. I was beautiful. Here's a link to a pix of her and her little friend:

    Caroline and Grayson are going to be lions (from Old Navy on sale). I'm trying to convice John to go as either a zoo keeper, or Daniel. He's not too excited!

    My mom made me a pencil costume out of IGA paper bags and black socks. I think I was 3 or 4 at the time. Can't beat the price! I thought it was awesome, but ever since everyone I've told it about has felt sorry for me…I guess "pencil" isn't the costume every little kid is begging their mom for these days. Or, ever, maybe?

    The air freshener costume is adorable. The BLT family looks like a lot of fun. I love Halloween – such a creative (and sweet) holiday.

    For their first halloween my three boys were cavemen. This year I wanted to dress the twins as convicts and their little brother as the police. However since the twins are almost 5 and little brother is 3 1/2 they picked their own costumes this year. Spiderman, Superman and Wolverine 🙁
