Wordless Wednesday Linky Party: The Big Reveal

If you missed last week I showcased Halloweens past thru the years. I asked if you could guess what theme my kiddos would be this year.

Did you guess a butterfly and bug catcher? If so you would be right!

Little Man wore it until it was time for trick or treating, at which time he transformed himself into some scary scream guy.

Gotta love that prepubescent tween age. It's so uncool to go trick or treating, let alone be a bug catcher. But funny thing is after about one block he turned into a safari guy because the mask was too hot and annoying or something. Gotta love 'em. My daughter is convinced that scary costumes always get more candy. I can hardly wait. (Sarcasm.)

So, there ya have it. Another Halloween down. How was your Halloween? Have many smiles?

If you missed my Project Smile party, it's not too late to share your smiles. It's open until November 6th at midnight.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Hump Day! Let's get this party started. Shall we? Add your link below and then head over to some of my other bloggy friends... Kristi at Live and Love Out Loud, Amanda at Parenting For Dummies, and Susan & Janice at 5 minutes for mom.

P.S. Shibley Smiles put together a fab list of Wordless Wednesday hosts. If you want to hit all the hot spots, check it out.

  13. I love the butterfly costume.. so lovely!!
    Not sure if scary costumes get more sweets as I'm more inclined to give sweets to kids with cute costumes.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I, too, love your butterfly. The photos are great, too. You've captured so much personality. Also funny to see the stages of Halloween through the eyes of 'tweens!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love that they will dress up together! So much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love this year's matching costumes - what a great idea! I am so not looking forward to when my kids want scary costumes - my oldest is already asking to be a vampire next year. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great costumes, your daughter looks gorgeous :)

    Happy WW!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Amazing! Did you make the costumes? your daughter is so pretty as the butterfly. And your son was very dapper as a trapper, what a Huge net!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love the butterfly and bug catcher costume. It is a clever costume pair without being too common. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Your kids were so cute!! My 11 year old boy also was minimalist by the time Trick or Treat rolled around (he had a whole costume the week before for a party but bits and pieces mysteriously disappeared over the week! Ghosts maybe.......

    ReplyDelete
  27. Awesome costumes! By the way, I love Pokey's hair. Did she get it cut again? Oh and the scary costumes...they don't get any better as they get older. My son always wants to be something bloody and scary. Blah!

  29. How fun!!! Love her butterfly wings, so pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a beautiful butterfly and fun bug hunter! Love that their costumes are so much more unique that what I must confess are often store bought costumes from me. Though father & son did handcraft a wand for our boy's transformation into Harry Potter this year & it came out pretty cool! (If you're curious, its the post before the one I've linked up with you for Wordless Wednesday, with more kidlet creative fun! :>) Hope you are having a wonderful week! I'm looking forward to hopping around the link ups tomorrow...after I catch a couple of winks tonight! :>

  37. What fun photos Alicia. And great costumes.

    This halloween was an experience of how things change as your kids get older. Not bad change just different. Halloween with a teen and tween :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Your kids are lovely and the costumes are brilliant!

    Happy WW :)

  39. You came up with such unique costume choices. Really cute.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh...the butterfly and catcher is soooo clever! Love it. I do, however, get his needing to be a "boy" in the end, tho. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love their costume choice! Was your daughter right? Did the scary costume get more candy? For my part, I always reward non-scary and creative costumes with more candy. Looks like they had a great night!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Great photos. My granddaughter did the same thing. Had two costumes going.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your kid's costumes. Especially the bug catcher. Totally understand the scary costume theory. But I always give the cute ones more, so tell her that!

    ReplyDelete
  44. ADORABLE!

    My tween was sooo stoked about trick or treating until one of her older friends from the neighborhood walked by (costumeless)... then suddenly, she became embarrassed!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Great costume ... that's a gorgeous butterfly. Our granddaughter went as an Aqua Fairy -- turquoise wings and we did some fun eye makeup. =)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Looks like a great Halloween. Love the costumes!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Great costumes. Love the Scream costume.

  60. Adorable. My boys would not even think about cute this year. My 7 year old wanted to be a scary clown and my 11 year old wore normal clothes with a scream mask and a sombrero! Crazy kid! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Great pics as always. Love the bug catcher costume - it's so much more creative than the scream mask! And that is one GIANT net!! I love her butterfly costume - she's the most elegant (human) butterfly I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  62. Great costumes!!! I also love your collage! :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love group and pair costumes - so much fun! They look great. We had a lot of those scream guys come to our house. Boys will be boys.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i love how you have them go in pairs..
    that makes them so much more creative in my opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Beautiful photos! I love the pair costumes, so clever. Your children are such a reflection of you.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I tried to leave a comment last night and I don't think it ever worked. Trying again! I love your costumes!! So creative! I also love your photo collage!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Looks like you had a great Halloween!!! Love all your fun photos!!

    ReplyDelete
  69. same w/ my 11yr old - wore a scary mask and brought home a LOT of candy.

    ReplyDelete
  70. They both look fabulous! I love the creativity on the costumes.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Your pictures, and your children, are beautiful! What a breathtaking butterfly. ;)

    My little one was one, as well. Just with wings and a headband/antennae ... but lots of flutterbyes this year!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Your children are adorable! Loved their costumes! and at least your son humored you for a bit (I'm sure he loved it even if he doesn't admit it :) )

    ReplyDelete
  73. Great captures!

    I have a 12 year old and all she wore were kitty cat ears! My 3 year old wore the whole kitty cat costume. =)

    I love Halloween pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Your kids are just beyond beautiful. Those costumes were great!

  75. I'm so sorry my link is in there twice. The computer kept timing out! :-)

    Adorable butterfly and catcher. Great pictures. I can't believe you got a tween boy to dress up for pictures. That is a work in itself. He made a great scream guy later. But, her make-up takes the cake, it looks perfect with her outfit.
    Happy WW!
