The End of Coordinating Halloween Costumes

I am that mom.

The one I rolled my eyes at long before I became a mother.

The mom who likes her children to wear coordinating Halloween costumes.

I know, I know. I'm the same mom who can't stand it when people dress their kids in coordinating outfits in daily life.

But there is something so cute about a Halloween theme for kids.


I know I'm biased but how cute are these little ones? Hands down this was my favorite year and my kids wore those handmade costumes as pjs all winter. 

My twins are going to coordinate this year, but my oldest wants no part of it. She made up her mind that she is going as a NCState Wolfpack Fairy Princess. I'm not sure where she got that idea, but her costume was fairly easy to make. 

I couldn't convince her to change her mind to coordinate with her siblings. It's the end of an wonderful season in life when I could easily influence my children. Now she has her own ideas and there is no swaying her. 


You could say that my little Isabella is growing up. 

I knew this was coming, but I'm still a little bummed. 

It's amazing to me how something as little as a Halloween costume choice makes me realize that my girl is growing up. I love that she's her own person and the creativity behind her costume is awesome. So I'm not sad that this is happening, just a little surprised that it happened so soon. 

And a little bummed. 

I think it's ok to be a little bummed. 


After all, they look so cute dressed up together.

Do your kids dress in themes still? Did they ever?
