That Time My Kids Were Beetlejuice And Lydia For Halloween

One Halloween, my kids were Beetlejuice and Lydia.





I was surprised on the amount of adults who had no idea who these characters were. Go watch Beetlejuice! Seriously!



My kids had a mini photo session with a local photographer. (Jessica B Photography.)


I love how the photos turned out. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid!








                                                                     "Beetlejui--"






The kids got a lot of candy.


In fact, Tommy ended up with FULL SIZE Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

He made me a deal. I could have them if I let him stay up until 1 AM.


Fine, whatever. For all I know he stays up until 1 AM anyway. Gimmie.

I'm also one of those parents who let the kids keep their candy bags. They can eat it whenever. Natalie was miffed that I keep taking stuff from her bag so she wrote this sign:


For the record, I've been ignoring it.






Have you seen Beetlejuice?

  2. How could they not know?! They look great and the photos are awesome! My kids get their candy the first few days and then, I start rationing. My kids have no self-control.
