I am wondering if anyone has gotten started on Halloween costumes yet?  My daughter is almost 11 and she gets to pick theme that she and her LB and LS will follow along in and she has picked a circa 1980's theme.  I will be making some flash dance inspired tops but not out of sweats (she wants a funky pattern in neon or something ; ) and have yet to decide anything about what the LB will be wearing, poor guy...if we thought the big hair and neon was unkind to the girls just what did it do to the boys?

I was actually thinking of that today! We are needing to get our ideas together a lot earlier than others due to the fact we are being stationed to Germany in a month. So does anyone know of a good costume for a family of 4? me, hubby, two lil boys 3 and 2

As for the 80's theme for your boy..how about a mohawk and those thin sunglasses with the slits to see in them. Boys also wore jam type shorts and tank tops or those thin ties and you could paint piano keys on it-

For a family of 4- for our family of 5 we went as prisoners of parenthood penitentiary(sp?) and the kids went as our jailers. It was very funny and the kids loved bossing us around and telling everyone we could have any candy...

Oh my gosh, I feel like such a slacker!  I got so busy this week that I forgot I had posted!  I am horrible.  I am so glad to see that so much of a costume conversation has come about.

You could be the pirate and he could be the booty!  Just carry him around in a sling (if you could make one for the occasion even better ; )
