Halloween thru the years

Happy Friday Friends!



My mom kept a Halloween scrapbook when I was growing up and she had it out last week when I was at my parents house. I just HAD to share some of the cute and...weird costumes I chose over the years.

1988- just 2 weeks old, no costume


1989- 'the devil you say!'


1990- this little piggy went to market


1991- 101 dalmation (Cori is an itsy bitsy spider)


1992- little miss Indian



1993- meeeooww (Cori is a baby and Tomi is a little lamb)


1994- Aladdin with Mickey Mouse and Bozo


1995- Bulldog's cheerleader (my mom's old uniform and poms)


1996- 'I'll get you my pretty'


1997- the pic is cut off but I was a Tamagochi!! I ain't lyin peeps


1998- 'Make Love. Not War'


1999- 'I'm a genie in a bottle baby'


2000- Gilligan's Island!! Check out my awesome brace face (I am Gilligan)



We lived in Illinois until 1994 hence why we are all bundled up in our costumes. Not like in Texas where everyone wants to be a mermaid or Baywatch Babe because it is 102 degrees on October 31. 

So for the next couple of years I either A. didn't dress up or B. can't find the pics. Here are our costumes from the past 2 years...

2009- vampires (note: I threw up while rubbing fake blood all over Jon's shirt)


2010- black widows/witches. Who doesn't love putting eye makeup on their hubs

We are going away for the weekend and I am not sure if we will dress up or not. However, Ernie has 2 costumes (a shark and a pirate) and a new Halloween skull shirt! We have my brother's football game on Monday night so we may dress up for that =)

Halloween on a Monday is so lame. Are you guys doing anything this weekend to celebrate? What are you dressing up as? And since I shared my awesome-sauce Tamagochi costume, what is a funny/weird/rad costume from your childhood and/or past?


Have a safe weekend!

I LOVE THIS POST! I adore all of these costumes through the ages, now I need to dig out all of mine. I'm also very jealous that you didn't have an awkward phase and were always pretty.

hahaha Love it! You were too cute! I love how you went from Gilligan to a sexy vampire. haha The last one is the best though!

Jessi said...

Hahaha. LOVE it! My favorite has to be your Indian costume. A-dor-a-ble. I was a cheer leader one year too.. I think that was just an all around good girly costume :)

Ashley said...

OMGoodness, i love all of your pics throughout the years. That is priceless. My kiddos are going as Alice in Wonderland, MAd hatter, and a sports dude. I hate that it falls on Mon this year. I feel like we will have to hurry b/c they'll have school the next day.. Definitely want to find all my kids pic of years past now.:)

What a fun idea! So great to see a collection of costumes like this. That last photo of your and your hubby is hilarious! Don't tell him I said this, but he looks a little creepy. Or maybe that was his intent! Ha! So funny!
