halloween 2015: the entire family in costume

welcome to our halloween! 
this year i thought a little bit about our costumes. just a little. 
then i found a gem of an idea....super easy + super cheap:
the Pacman family!
I bought some really low-grade fleece from walmart in the kids favorite colors...i sewed them right up and cut some neck+arm holes and voila! cute little ghosts. 
and don't forget some felt for the eyes. 
the kids have loved wearing their costumes (which has been about all week) 
but let me tell you how hard it is to get a photoshoot with these kids? 
all they want to do is run and play and ride their bikes instead of stand still. 
this year i also bought our first colored hair spray which psyched the boys! they let me take their portraits with andrew quoting, 'if you don't smile, you look more handsome' 
for Pacman and Mrs. Pacman shirts, a plain cotton tee, some paint and some felt. easy peasy!!
we took lots of photos out there and by the millionth photo, they were feeling like....
and i was just like....
but the feedback we got on the costumes was amazing!!! some younger kids didn't know what the heck we were, but most did. 
hope you guys enjoyed! we will be going trick or treating on saturday and hope we don't get rained out.
i have really enjoyed putting a theme for our family on halloween. last year we were the power rangers and you can check that out here.
how does your family celebrate this holiday? do you make their own costumes or buy them?
