Can You Guess Our Theme?

There are two kinds of people in the world: normal, regular people who take Halloween in stride, and crazy, obsessed people who spend way too much time and money on the whole thing. 

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that my family (at least the kids and I) fall into the latter category. An in-depth exploration of how the idea of a Halloween "theme" first took root in our household is posted on the Chicago Moms Blog, so check it out. You can also see our very first Halloween theme on display at The Animal Store blog, where we are celebrating the 16th anniversary of our grand opening. 

In the meantime, see if you can spot the theme from our past Halloween exploits. I'd love to hear how you celebrate. Leave a comment here

This theme is pretty obvious, 
but can you guess which two are twins?

Star, sun, moon and (believe it or not) Saturn.
Get it?

World's tallest Tinkerbell and her boys.

Who are they this time?

This is a bit of a stretch, but you can get it.
Come on, what do Captain Jack, the Pirate Queen
a Navy admiral and a scuba diver have in common?

Stumble It!

Ask this blogger to show you 15 years of themes at Halloween!!! They are great and she made them all from scratch.

Ohhhhhhh!!!! This is so cute!! Amazing - and worth all the hard work. I love seeing how the kids grow up too. But I'm lost with the scuba diver. And the Navy admiral - is this some variation on Gilligan's Island?
