While we may not be ones to embrace the scary side of Halloween (see last year’s Halloween post), our kids love to dress up in costumes. Every year we let them choose whatever costume they want and it appears that we have a running theme, here. Something to do with superheroes and princesses.

I’ll show you.

2006 – The year of the Batmen

Batman and Batman

Those were actually pajamas. Double duty! (I said duty. Hee.)

2007 – They’re Incredible

These guys are pretty Incredible

I had totally forgotten about the Incredibles costumes. I may or may not have bowed my head while wracked with laughter.

2008 – Optimus Prime (Graham), Belle and Bumblebee (Nathan)

Happy Halloween!

I do believe that this photo is almost too awesome for words.

2009 – Ironmen and a Little Mermaid

She was still so bald, a mere year ago.

2010 – Darth Vader (Nathan), Cinderella and Boba Fett the Storm Trooper (Graham)

I really do have three of the coolest kids on the planet. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next year.

    Your children are beautiful! I think you are an awesome Mom!

    Emily is catching up in height to them! They’d better watch out or their little sister will be taller than them! (And I will know their pain being the oldest and shortest.)

    They are pretty awesome. ;)

    Awesome indeed :)

    I think it’s interesting that the boys stay so in-sync with each other, really speaks to their closeness.

    So sweet, really.

    Oh, the cuteness! It kills me! :) LOVE the first picture especially. Kids in costumes has to be the best thing ever.

    Well that certainly brightened up my Monday morning! :)

    Very cool how it’s been similar each year. They can look back as adults and see what movie was popular the previous yr!! So cute, as always! I can imagine Miss Emily deciding to be a superhero as well in the future, being the strong little Miss she is! I had a cardboard(homemade) ford f350(like dads, complete w box cover that opened for candy storage); one who had 4 different costumes for different events: scary nurse, ninja, black cat & bellydancer; medusa(also homemade); pirate; & finally
    an elephant. I keep about 4 totes of costumes etc so they can choose & make up costumes each yr!

    Love the Iron Men costumes. Emily will look great in any dress. She is a little princess.

    Kids in costumes is the best part about Halloween. That, and a perpetual excuse for me to watch Hocus Pocus.

    Love it! They are just gorgeous kids Angella.

    I love how Emily’s always a princess sandwiched between two superheroes/comic book stars.

    Cute costumes! I love that the boys have a real superhero theme going on! Halloween is not a big thing here in NZ, and we as a family don’t celebrate it … but my boys do love to dress up whenever they get a chance, and I’m sure they would definitely approve of your kids’ costumes!

    That last photo looks so delightfully autumn-y! Looks like your kiddies had a fun Hallowe’en. Do you think Emily will ever match her costume to her brothers’?

    They are getting so tall!

    Oh, how I love the 2008 picture.

    “This is my life. Seriously.” Is what I picture your daughter saying.

    So cute!

    Way behind on google reader – excuse – new baby.

    Wow it’s crazy to see how little they were as Batmen!! I love the the brothers either have matching costumes or at least the same theme. Too too cute! *Brotherly Love*

    I also love that the boys are SO BOY – and Emily is SO GIRL! Kids rock.
