So, I was blindsided earlier this week while cropping/fixing the pics we took for Halloween this year. It turns out, I have almost every pic I’ve taken already loaded into a Picasa Album. I got lost for hours looking through all the memories from before the quads were born, through their NICU stint, the infant years, and now almost graduating their toddler phase.
So, the trip down memory lane got my mind thinking about this post I’m about to present to you all.
Billy and I have ALWAYS loved Halloween and we would dress up creatively for the holiday every chance we had before kids came into the picture. Now, I’m all about
obsessing thinking about new costume ideas for the kids in the future (even if Halloween was only a few days ago). I’ll admit……..it IS an illness.
But I thought it’d be fun to showcase our Halloween attire just so everybody can see where we started.
First off, I present this year’s costumes…….Oompa Loompas from the 1971 movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
These are my personal favorites and were easy to make. Plus, the kids LOVED them and still go around singing the Oompa Loompa song and break into the Oompa Loompa dance randomly throughout the day.
PIUS AND LAINE
PIUS…..WHAT A GOOBER
……A REALLY BIG GOOBER
PI-PI AND DADDY FACING OFF
FO-FO, LAINE, PIUS, DANNA……IN A VERY GREEN BATH
……AND NOW, FOR THE GHOSTS OF HALLOWEENS PAST…..
2010 - “Four-of-a-Kind”
2009 – 3 Elmer Fudd hunters with Danna as their bunny rabbit
2008 – The Wizard of Oz
DANNA AS DOROTHY
FORREST AS THE SCARECROW
PIUS AS THE LION
LAINE AS THE TINMAN

They were SO much easier to contain back then! But I really don’t miss those days.
Hope everyone had a great Halloween!
