Dressin’ Up For Treats – Halloween Memories With My Kids

This week, as I looked for a few Halloween photos, I stumbled on some that I had totally forgotten about. My oldest son is now 20 and my middle son is 15. That’s a lot of costumes to try to remember.

Sadly, I don’t have many pictures of their past costumes, but the ones that I do have are worth sharing, even if the quality isn’t so great.

One of Dante’s first costumes was Superman! I am almost positive that he is wearing one of my DJ hats here. Of course, he is appropriately eating chocolate!

Dimitri wound up wearing the costume, too. Even when it wasn’t Halloween. Here he is at the mall whooping it up!

Keeping with the Superhero theme – Dante’ loved being Mr. Incredible one year. He never seemed to want to keep the mask on. However ….

When the costume was recycled for Dimitri – he loved the mask!

Dimitri’s first costume was this Lion. I took this picture with my Blackberry in 2007. Boy, did the camera phones suck back then!

That same year, Dante’ chose to be a Pirate. I’m sure there was a hat that went with this costume, but he didn’t want to wear it.

The boys the following year – Dr. Dante’ and golfer Dimitri. Who knew that Dimitri would actually be interested in golf years later?!

I really thought that was such a cute costume.

One of my favorite “team” costumes! Scooby Doo and Shaggy.

Dressed up in 2012 for Boo Bash – Officer Dimitri and Graduate Dante’

From there, most of the pictures are lost until a recent picture of the two of them at a Halloween party.

Pretty nice job as Marty and Doc from Back to the Future. I think this was like 4-5 years ago.

Ella’s first Halloween – 2020. She was our cute little unicorn.

Last year, Dimitri was here and helped our little ladybug around.

Andrew was less than a month old, so he stayed nice and warm inside on Halloween 2021. This year, however, it is a different story!

Sam did a fantastic job picking the “team” costume for them this year! Ella is perfect as Beauty (Princess Belle) and Andrew is awesome as The Beast! This picture was taken a couple days ago before they did a Trunk or Treat down the block from us. That was a dress rehearsal and tonight, they will be collecting candy from the neighbors.

Happy Halloween to you!!

  1. these are such classics and the old memories are so fun. I posted about the old boxed and suffocating costumes we wore when I was young, before we moved on to real costumes )
