I used to love to dress the boys in matching outfits when they were little.
You know for Christmas…
And yes, Halloween too.
It was always so fun to have them in the same thing, plus it was easier to keep track of them if we went somewhere like the Arboretum, with our play group buddies, or to my parents’ church where kids run rampant in the back!
We are headed to the local church-sponsored pumpkin patch next week while the kids have Fall break from school, and I started thinking about what I want the kids to wear (it’s a sickness).
The first year we went, they looked like this:
The candy corn shirts were made by a friend in Texas and still happened to fit the boys the following year so I made them wear them again.
I tried a third year but Ben wasn’t having it. For some reason he’s not into belly shirts and 3/4 length TIGHT sleeves. Picky kid.
So, my friend Lisa gave me some shirts for the boys when K was born and they were “fallish” looking so in 2010 this is what the kids looked like while at the “patch”.
And then last year? Well…
As you can see, I kinda gave up on matching. ANYONE.
And that shirt STILL fits Katie this year so she will probably wear it again next week.
And the boys will throw on something from their closet and off to the patch we will go.
I guess the days of matchy-matchy are over.
p.s. One of my ALL TIME favorite pics of the boys.
Just because I love their matching outfits so much, of course. 🙂
