    41. I like the pumpkins and scarecrow guesses. That would be mine as well… although I like all the creative guesses!

    42. Amber S. says:

      Wow… I have been trying to get creative in thoughts of three for my boys. (This year we will have a lion, a tiger, and a bear, while I am Dorothy, and my hubby is going to wear a t-shirt that says "OH MY!")

      Trying to think in thoughts of four…


      They are each going to each be a different colored M&M; or a different type of candy bar? (I must be hungry!)

    43. Anonymous says:

      Since you like food theme costumes…how about M&Ms; (in Red, Orange, Blue, and Green).

    49. ASHENFELTERS says:

    50. Mama Snyder says:

      You seem to have a great sense of humor, so I’m guessing that the boys will not only be adorable, but funny, too.

      I’m going to guess they will be Disney Characters: Donald, Mickey, Pluto and Goofy.

    59. Leah says:

      I guess that Clark will be a sheep, Henry a horse, Brooks a chicken, and Isaac a cow! Ha! Their best barn yard animal impressions! But, if your post is any indication, I guess pumpkins!

    60. Stacey says:

      Since you just visited a dairy farm my vote is 4 little cow with all diffrent colors. Some brown, some black, some black and brown, and one mostley white!

    61. Amanda says:

      I’m going to guess lions. But they’ll look cute no matter what they wear!

    62. chelsea says:

      The hallo-wieners were pretty cute last year:) The train wagon is cute—maybe train engineers so that the wagon is part of their costume.

    63. Suzanne says:

      just wanted to say that i hope you had a WONDERFUL birthday sweet little mama! you deserve it! love you so much and dream of hugging your sweet little neck!–you tiny thang, you!

    64. Maggie says:

      Or maybe You as Dari (LOL) and the boys as Pooh, Tigger, Eyeore and either Lumpy or Piglet.
      Well there’s my guesses can’t wait to see their costumes, I’m sure they’ll look adorable whatever they are.

    70. Jenny B says:

      my guess is the Ninja turtles!:) haha…i can’t believe they made a comeback from when we were kids! Love you girl!!!

    71. I'm going to guess that they are going to be: Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore & Piglet!!! 🙂

    72. Pumpkins….but of course they will be cute as anything.

    73. Libby says:

      M & M's….Green, Yellow, Red & Blue!! Mom and Dad could be M & M's too! Brown & Orange!

    74. Michelle says:

      Hmmm, what about 4 sippy cups of milk?

    75. Hummm. I don’t have a guess. I like to be surprised.

      Love you.
      Gen 🙂

    76. Moni Graf says:

      You’ll use the pumpkins as heads to carry, and they’ll be the headless horsemen. You know….the one with Ichabod Crane? Maybe too scary for them though.

      I know! Bring in 3 other sets of adults and divide the boys up. Then they can go as singletons!

      Or how about having 4 little priests/ministers?

      I’m sure none of those guesses are valid. I hope you have found a creative way to transform the choo-choo wagon and the boys into Thomas the Train. That’s my final answer.

      We’re keeping our quads’ costumes under wraps, too. Mainly because I don’t really have a clue what we’re doing yet! Sigh.

      Love from KS,

    77. Cyn says:

      I’ll guess they are going to be four little pumpkins, too! 😉

    78. I’m guessing 4 ADORABLE pumpkins!!! Can’t wait to see the pics!!! Do we HAVE to wait all the way to Halloween though?? 🙂

    79. ~Denise~ says:

      Pumpkins seems like the logical guess. I really like the Bic Mac, fries, etc idea someone suggested. That’d be cute.

      I’m going to say we will have a Yoda, Darth Vader, R2D2, and C3PO.

    80. Nikki says:

      It has to be PUMPKINS!

    81. Stephanie says:

      my guess is cats or scarecrows and they are posing with the pumpkins

    82. Sarah says:

      Okay don’t laugh at me…but I am guessing “the village people” heehee!!!

    83. Anonymous says:

      Hi Jennifer – long time huh? 🙂 I read, I just don’t take the time to comment too often. Here’s my guess – -“Fruit of the Loom Guys” (twins can be green and purple grapes; and then the other 2 apple and fig) 🙂 haha! they have grown so much and are just too adorable!!! Have fun!! Love ya!

    84. Side by Side says:

    91. twyatt says:

      I am guessing pumpkins by all the “clues” in the post!!!

    92. Dana says:

      I saw triplets once dressed up like M&M;'s in a wagon made to look like a bag of M&M;'s- it was adorable!! So I guess M&M;'s!!

    93. I am guessing thomas the train and his friends!!


    94. M&M;'s (red,blue,green, and yellow)

    95. Susan says:

    100. Ginny says:


    101. Trish says:

      Four little monkeys

    102. Dawn says:

      I’ll guess scarecrows. Your boys are adorable!

    103. Hmmmm, this is a hard one, wish I knew what they liked 🙂
      My idea would be a caterpillar, one being the head and 3 being parts of the body and end.

    104. Rachel says:

      I’ll have to guess pumpkins too 😉

    105. Deborah says:

      I think they’ll be garbed as assorted farm animals: a cow, a sheep, a duck, and a pig. (If it were me, I’d probably only be able to find 3 different farm costumes, and one of the boys would have to be a zebra or giraffe or something). Whatever costumes they wear, I’m sure they’ll be super cute! 🙂

    106. Jamie says:

      4 monkeys jumping on the bed.

    107. Jenny says:

      I’m sure that they’re going to be adorable no matter what they dress up as! However, I’m going to guess pumpkins also. 🙂

    108. Jumping on the bandwagon, Jen- 4 little pumpkins??

      Can’t, can’t wait to see!!!

    110. Jessi says:

      Hi, Jen.

      I’m popping over for the first time from Rocks In My Dryer. I’ve always thought of moms with multiples as Super Women…you are amazing! And I adore the boys’ wagon.

      What a fun little contest! Since quite a few folks guessed pumpkins, fast food, Wiggles, Thomas, Wizard of Oz, etc., I’m going to go with….Veggie Tales characters: Bob, Larry, Jr., and one of the French Peas. ???

    111. Jenn Brothers-Haler says:

      Well, I’d like to say pumpkins based upon your pictures you’ve posted, but I think you’re probably just trying to trick us….So, I’m going to go w/ monkeys. Jackson is going to be a monkey so that’s how I decided! Can’t wait to see pics – they’ll be adorable no matter what you put them in!

    112. Katmagick says:

      I assume your carving them? A Witch, Frankenstein, a Bat and a Cat.

    113. MariaJoy says:

      I was gonna guess Thomas the Train and friends. I saw others already guessed that….but oh well! That’s still what I’ll guess! 🙂

    114. ~*~Hallie~*~ says:

      I think the superheroes “The Fantastic Four” would be great, but perhaps they’re a little too young for that just yet.:)Oh whoops, I just remembered that one is a girl, nevermind!

    115. Shannon says:

      I haven’t read all 124 comments so not sure if this has been guessed but a barber shop quartet is my guess. I think they’d be soooo cute dressed like that! Happy Halloween!

    116. Dawn says:

      M & M's


      p.s. Have they dressed up in their Purdue attire yet? Actually, with the way the Boilers are playing, perhaps they should wait until basketball season!!

    117. Dawn says:

      Escape? Was that a clue? Maybe they’re going to be little prisoners…

    118. Janel says:

      Tiny little prisoners? Stripey costumes are easy to wear!

    119. I guess they are going to be escaped convicts.

    120. Susann says:

      I’m gonna go with Thomas the Train characters. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!! You’re so creative!

    121. Christina says:

      I am also going to guesse jal costumes!!

    122. Shelly says:

      Are they going to be pumpkins?

    123. K.M.L says:

      I am going to say little prison babies! 🙂

    124. Dell5 says:

      My guess is four little monkey’s jumpin’ on the bed, one fell off and….well, you know the rest! Happy Halloween!!

    125. Wade's World says:

      I take back my previous guess. I think they are going to be jailbirds!!!

    126. My guess is 4 jailbirds

    127. Erica says:

      How about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?? two boys are the slices of bread, one is the peanut butter and one is the jelly.

    128. Valerie says:

      I just realized I forgot to post a guess and you put up a last chance email. Anyway, I’m going to guess either farmers or pumpkins! Have fun!!

    129. Anonymous says:

      I’m going to guess zoo animals and zoo keeper….any ones. But if I need to be specific…..hmmmm….
      lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my! With either one as the zoo keeper or YOU as the zoo keeper.

    130. I’m thinking four pumpkins??

    131. Andria says:

      I might have posted on a different post some other time, but I think they are “chick magnets”!!

    132. Michelle says:

      Well, I guessed sippy cups earlier, but I am going to reguess with jailbirds. Haha
