For the past 4 Halloweens we have tried to come up with unique family costume ideas.
1st Halloween....robert was only a little over a month old.... we were farmers and he was a pea pod... this was so last minute!
2nd Halloween Little Robert was King Kong and we were buildings (we each wore a building costume so that we could rotate carrying him... but we soon took one off because people thought we were the twin towers!) We could not find a gorilla costume that didn't cost $80 so we got a monkey one.... although he looked more like a bear with a tail!
3rd Halloween Little Robert was a bag of Money and we were Robers! This one was pretty fun and super easy!
Crap! I just realized that I don't have any of the pictures from this.... I think my mom has them from her camera.... oh well you'll just have to picture it. Robert and I dressed all in black with black beenies on our heads.... and Robert dressed as a money bag made from a pillow case! Just trust me it was cute!

4th Halloween.... Robert was a wedge of cheese and we were bread. A grilled cheese sandwich!
This was not the easiest costume for trick or treating in.... but it was still fun. This was his first year really walking from door to door. At first he didn't totally understand what we were doing... but he just went with the flow. He lasted about 2 blocks and then he didn't want to do it any more. His cousin Nikki decided that she wanted to take his bucket up with her to get candy for him. Everyone believed her and there were no questions asked(even though the couldn't see him sitting in the stroller.)

Now to start thinking of next years costume!

You're on a roll with this blogging thing! I love the costumes and think it's fantastic the whole family comes together for it. I feel that my favorite would of been the robbers and money bag (hard to tell cause no pic). So I'm going with the farmers and the pea (just cause he looks so snuggle E cute). Good ideas as always Annette.
