I can't say so much for Clayton. ALL he wanted to be was Iron Man. That's what he was last year. The costume didn't fit anymore and I couldn't convince him to do anything else. He doesn't even like Iron Man that much. I just think he remembers that last year he was Iron Man and everyone gave him candy. Why would he risk messing that up!!! I may or may not have made him be a chocolate bar and said for Halloween night he could be whatever he wanted (and he was Iron Man in a way too small suit by the way). He didn't put up too much of a fight with that agreement. Some day he will learn this is Mom's holiday, not his. I'm just glad 3 of the 4 kids plus one husband go along with my ideas are were excited about it.

I'm most proud of my Willy Wonka. His vest looked legit but Zach was adamant it was way to flowery for a boy! And I must say our decorated trunk complete with music from the movie, wasn't too bad either. Needless to say, we won a gift card to Bosa Donuts for the best family costume. 2 for 4 years baby! P.S. Adam was a pretty good sport to be wearing that costume, jacket and all, since it was 99 degrees the day of the trunk or treat. Everyone was so hot as we ate hot chili and so many kids were in costumes fit for winter!
Some of the other favorites:
Inside Out including cubicles decorated like the memory dump and a chain of "memories"
And Finding Dory where they passed out Nemo stamps instead of candy.
