  1. Lil’ Man is Cookie Monster. MIL sent him the costume a few months ago and since he is currently obsessed with the you tube video “Share It Maybe” it’s a perfect fit!

  2. We don’t celebrate halloween but still think the pumpkin snack from Rice Krispies is a cute idea! I bought their kit for a “Rice Krispies” gingerbread house last year, the kids loved it!

  3. My 12 year old is a vampire prom queen, my 8 year old is something from Star Wars and my little guy (5) is Anakin Skywalker. I am dressing up as my mother, in her prime in the 70s. It will be epic (ly) stupid if you ask my husband ; )
