The Ghost of Halloween Past

I’m a total sucker for throwback posts.

Maybe I am sentimental or maybe I am a gluten for punishment.

There is just something about looking back on the past that I love so very, very much.

So that is exactly what we are going to do today as we take a look back on the Halloweens past.

Let’s start at the beginning, 2007!

The first Halloween picture of us as a family of 3 would be this (Russ might kill me).

I was about 5.5 weeks pregnant with Marissa here and mum was the word.

 

2008

 Now parents of a 4 month old it was pretty obvious we were excited. We had Halloween outfits and 2 costumes. The mermaid one is my favorite. Her first costume was inspired by her name which happens to mean from the sea. 

2009
Our Elmo obsessed silly girl was a ladybug princess.

2010
In 2010 we were expecting a baby sister, Marissa was clearly obsessed with Russ and her facial expressions were always #onpoint.

2011
Yo, this is my sister!
Since they were now clearly a duo I dressed them as a pair, Little Bo Peep and her sheep.

2012
Probably my favorite Halloween so far. Marissa was the prettiest Cinderella ever. I dressed  her then cried all the tears because she looked so beautiful. Emily was a princess too (Marissa’s idea). So funny to look back on almost 2 year old Emily with so little hair. 

2013
 By Halloween 2013 a certain someone was head over heels in love with Minnie Mouse and Marissa jumped on to a different Disney character.

2014
I don’t think anyone was surprised when Emily chose to be Minnie Mouse again we changed up the costume with some simple pieces we already had lying around because, hello, she’s obsessed. Marissa picked a butterfly so I made these awesome wings from felt.

2015
 ? ? ?
What will 2015 bring?

You’ll just have to wait and see.

  • Oh my goodness, Marissa’s Cinderella costume was just beautiful!! Did you make it?! And did you completely flash forward to helping her into her wedding gown 20 years from now?! I totally did. I have never seen a costume so perfect before! It definitely doesn’t look like your standard out-of-the-bag Halloween costume.

    • Aaawww thank you so much. I did make it. It is fantastic and it is still hanging up in her closet, lol. Last year Emily wore it…. but she also wore Minnie ears too. Just call her Minnierellla. Oh that girl is so funny. I won’t lie, I bawled like a baby. She just looked like the perfect Cinderella. I thought Disney World might kidnap her :P. Too bad you aren’t closer, I’d let you borrow it sometime :D!
