Wordful (Ghosts of Halloween Past) Wednesday

I LOVE Halloween.

It hasn't always been my favorite holiday (I used to be all about my fat, red wearing homeboy), but having the dudes around makes it so much fun.

I think it's the only time of the year that I feel like dressing a boy is fun.

It seems that they have so much more variety in costume choices, at least compared to how I was growing up.

My mom must've been so bored because I really just wanted to be the same thing I was every other day of the year: a princess.

I mean, she talked me into changing it up a little a few years (I remember a very good witch costume and Oscar the Grouch), but for the most part, all I really wanted was a pretty dress and some shiny shoes, maybe throw in a wand and/or a tiara, and I was good.

Really, you could just smear on some lipstick (and pick out my afro) and I considered myself dressed up (some things never change!)...

But, the dudes...

They are so much more versatile!

They've been animals (we like to recycle our costumes),

They've been heroes,

They've been ninjas and wizards,

And Jedi knights,

The only thing they haven't ever been is super.

Looks like they've got that covered though this year!

Visit Seven Clown Circus for more Wordful Wednesday posts and to participate in this super cool writing carnival hosted by Angie, Mama Kat, Mayhem and Moxie, and Better in Bulk.

Absolutely adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

angie said... Perfection in every photo. I always wanted to be an angel growing up. Every year. I never wanted to be the fun stuff. BORING.

Your SUPER heros look great this year, and I loved all their past costumes too.

Jennifer said...

I love that batman costume. He is so tiny and cute.

Tammy Howard said...

Got it covered indeed!!!

(I was Robin one year to my then boyfriend's Batman. It was my favorite costume to date...)

Mine are too young to state a preference so they're whatever momma has in the costume box. I'd love to have some sort of coordinated theme but not this year. I'll be surprised if I'm alive by Saturday.

Lolli said...

I am loving all of the costumes. I'm assuming Ariel was a friend and not one of your boys wanting to go for something different....right?

JennyMac said...

The Blonde Duck said...

SO precious!

Kekibird said...

Love it all. And what I love about my son, those costumes he wears on Halloween last throughout the year. He'll be a fireman on Christmas day, in February and even to Disneyland.

TKW said...

There is nothing that your band of super-heroes can't do. This I know is true.
