Halloween 2012: When Duct Tape And The Dollar Store Collide

Around here we go all out on Halloween Group Costumes.  Something about having quadruplets brings it out…it’s a challenge of sorts, a rite of embarrassment, a neighborhood tradition.

First there were our Hallow Weiners in 2007

Then we went with the cute herd of giraffes in 2008

The EPIC Monkeys Jumping on the Bed Costume turned FLOAT in 2009…

And my all-time favorite Fruit of the Womb Costume in 2011

We simply couldn’t beat last year. It holds its own history and fame.

However, with the help of The Dollar Tree and several rolls of duct tape, we pulled off this heroic outfit, and the boys couldn’t have loved it more. 

My Knight and Shining Armors…

They stared at it all morning. They didn’t play with their toys because they were obsessed over it.  They talked about it allllllll day long.  So while it may not win on the cute or embarrassing factor, it won them over completely.

I mean after all, the costume involved SWORDS.  Instant win for 5 year old boys.

And I must admit, these four Knight and Shining Armors have completely captured my heart.

    You always do a great job! Jack always vetoes my ideas for costumes. :-(

  2. I love the Halloween recap. Great costumes every year… I love the bed frame on the stroller with the monkeys jumping on the bed. The fruit of the womb is beyond cute and creative! We match ours too but you take it a step further and get into the game by dressing up too. I love it! It would be great if you would link this post to Multiples Monday (when it opens up on Monday). I hope your family had a happy Halloween. We had 335 trick or treaters so it was busy at our house. Ours are still too young for candy but they liked greeting everyone at the door.
