Halloween: A Look Back

Pin It now! Amanda over at Funny Days with Mommy and Maddie has a linky up for posts about kids in Halloween costumes and I thought it would be fun to join in! So here's a look back at what Dawson has been for Halloween...

This was in 2008, he was born just 6 days before Halloween so we didn't buy him a real Halloween costume because he was so small. He did have a few really cute Halloween onesies though!

His onesie says "this is my costume!" He's also got on a cute little pumpkin hat and pumpkin socks. :)

I also really like this ghost onesie that he had.

I think all together he had 5 or 6 Halloween onesies, we got a few of them as gifts and couldn't resist buying a couple ourselves since we knew he was going to be born so close to Halloween.

Last year he was a dinosaur! And it was his first time trick-or-treating. He had just turned a year old so he didn't really get in to it much but he liked being outside walking around with everyone.


This year he was going to be a skeleton but when we took him shopping for a costume we learned that he is scared of skeletons so that wasn't going to work. We ended up finding this really cute pirate costume that he wasn't scared of and I like it a lot more than I would have liked a skeleton.

Doesn't he look adorable?! The boots are a little big, we actually just trimmed them down a little bit this morning so they would fit him better because he is wearing his costume tonight! The housing that we live in is having a Fall into Fun party tonight and kids are supposed to wear their costumes. We are looking forward to going, it should be a lot of fun and I'm excited to see Dawson dressed up in his costume again.

I think he's going to have a lot of fun trick-or-treating this year and seeing all the other kids in their costumes. He has already mastered saying "trick-or-treat" so he's ready to go!

SO CUTE! I love the dinosaur costume. I really like the pirate costume, too. I would totally dress my son up as a pirate if I had one. I would dress Ashlyn up as one, but I'll stick with princesses and girly stuff in case she turns out to be a tomboy. lol Have fun at the Fall Into Fun party!!

Too cute! My oldest was born on the 29th! His first costume was himself--he was the color of a pumkin and in billy light treatments! Now he's 10 and we have to work his birthday party around Trick or Treating!
