Halloween 2014 has come and gone. Look at my two cuties all dressed up this year. I really try to stay away from getting store bought costumes as I don't like the commercialism of this holiday. If my kids want to get candy from strangers, I think they (really me at their ages) need to work for it a bit, hopefully they will agree as they get older and older.
Since I am only weeks away from giving birth to my 3rd child, the thought of elaborate costumes was just not going to do but these were super duper easy.
Johnathan (6) went at Fred from Scooby Doo. I bought the blue dress shirt and white sweater from used clothing stores and the orange ascot is just a strip of a very ugly orange shirt I bought and cut. I didn't even bother sewing it. He had some nice "preppy" dress shoes to wear to complete the outfit but he is weird about shoes and I didn't feel like arguing. Sometimes it just isn't worth it!
Here he is getting candy at a house with a very cool scary costume. We also got Robert to go up to this guy but he started crying.
Robert (20 months) went as Bob the Builder (name sake, get it?). I bought the hat at goodwill and the tool belt at Target, the rest of the outfit he already owned. Easy. The Cheetoo was a bribe to get him to keep the hat on and somehow it worked.
What a couple of cuties. These two are still best friends, I hope they find room for the third who is just around the corner!

Robbie and Bumpa walking the streets looking for good candy, Robbie was stashing the goods in his tool belt.
Oh and here is daddy and Uncle Jake playing on their phones, we tried losing them here but they found us. Good thing the kids were with us and not these two with their heads stuck to their phones. What a bunch of creepers sitting on a street corner with phone in hand and an empty stroller. ;)
The kids weren't the only ones to have fun. Nate and I dressed up as well. He went as pregnant me and I went (with my pregnant belly) as the magic eight ball (my signs got cut out of the pictures, but I think you get the point. Super easy costumes that took about 10 minutes to throw together. At 8.5 months pregnant, I don't feel like giving anything more than 10 minutes of my time!
One more final shot of my hubby dressed as me for Halloween. Look at those sexy legs :) And yes, he wore this dress better than I do!
