We know many of our readers don’t have facebook or instagram, so here is a compilation of all of our past family costumes, and a plea to help us figure out this year’s! Any votes?? My mom and dad always made every holiday come alive for us, and I hope to continue this with my own family. I don’t know how long they will be on board for family costumes, but so far they have loved it…..

I found most of their costumes at a consignment store, but they are usually available at Target.
