  1. I laughed out loud at taco belle. 🙂 I read your round up last year and got the couples idea for mary poppins and bert. I loved creating that costume. Still not sure what to be this year though. None of these costumes really stuck out as “the one”. Thanks for the roundup though. The pictures are so cute. 🙂

    1. Keelie- I hope you were able to find ‘the one’ before Halloween. Sorry this list didn’t do it for you. I am sure you had a great night! Thanks for your comment.
