Finding a fun couple costume for my husband and me has always been an adventure. In the past we’ve gone as Robin Hood and a medieval knight (fun because we both got to wield plastic weapons – a bow and arrow for me and a sword for my him), sailors (technically, I went as Shirley Temple but in a sailor dress), and as toys (I was a rag doll and he was Woody from Toy Story).
Things were complicated by the arrival of our daughter last year. At Halloween she was four months old, and we weren’t up for wild and crazy Halloween shenanigans. Instead, we did a fall festival “family fun” type event. We dressed Ruby in a pig costume, and my husband and I donned overalls and straw hats as farmers. It worked well, since I had too much post-pregnancy pudge for anything fancy. We were comfortable, and everywhere we went got big reactions … though I think all the “awwwww, how cutes” were for Ruby!
