Halloween costumes for kids

Sometimes things just sneak up on you. I know that I get super busy with work, family life and the to-do list that just gets longer every day. Halloween seemed so far away but then I blinked and now it’s here in just a few days. There are no carve pumpkins to paint, Halloween cookies to bake and of course, costumes to decide on.

This year we actually got an early start. We had plans to check out the fall fun at Disney World and needed costumes. It may just be the earliest we’ve ever gotten our costumes squared away.

I had all kinds of Disney princess dress up ideas but after much debate, we went with a Star Wars theme. Leia hair was harder than I expected but I managed in the end and we all loved our costumes.
