15 Years of Halloween: A Look Back in Pictures

By Just Heather |

A few weeks ago, the girls were discussing Halloween and planning their costumes — for next year. This year’s costumes were decided long ago. That’s how my girls are. They decide on something and stick with it, which is awesome for this frugal mom.

I have been able to purchase Halloween costumes on clearance an entire year before. I also have a full year to prep for any DIY that may be required. I was laughing with them about how often that has actually worked, when Lorelai asked me to name all of her costumes.

She’s had 6, so far, so it wasn’t that challenging. Then, the teen dared me to name all of hers. She’s had a few more costumes so it was quite a challenge. I only forgot one, but it really made me nostalgic, especially when I realized this was her 15th Halloween.

She’ll be 15 in just a few months, and this was probably the last year I’ll have all 3 of my girls home for the evening. The teen made noises about hanging with friends tonight, but I convinced her it was a bad idea on a school night. Next year, though, I’m probably in for more of a discussion.

Until then, here’s a look back at our 15 years of Halloween — 15 years, 3 girls, and 32 costumes.

Halloween Costume Nostalgia


The hubby chose her very 1st costume. He thought it would be hilarious to yell, "Duck!" when people opened the door. He was not wrong.

I believe the tween still has a few more princesses to go, but next year she plans to be Smurfette. I’ll be anxiously waiting the little one’s decision. She should have hers all picked out by tomorrow morning.
