DD will be 12 months when Halloween comes. Both DH and I are going to take her trick or treating. Not to every single neighbor up and down the block but we will stop in on friends houses and sometimes walk through the local nursing home as well. I really wanted DH to dress up too so he could walk with her up to the door and I can be that annoying mom in the front lawn taking lots of pictures. (Since we missed her last Halloween)

At first I wanted DH to dress up in yellow and DD be a little monkey since that is her nickname. They could be curious George and the man in the yellow hat. But DH just had an idea he is willing to do. DH would dress up in old tattered clothes and somehow put something on his shoulders to cover his head. Then he would put the top of his shirt where the top of his head would be. So basically he would be a headless man and DD could be a pumpkin. Then he could essentially hold his heads hand and walk up sidewalk. But do you think it would be too scary? I think it would be cute as long as DH doesn't back out at the last minute. But am just wondering if we should go with a more conventional first (well2nd) Halloween and just dress her up.

I guess it depends on your DD! My ds would think it was hilarious if daddy's head was missing.

That would be hilarious. You should prepare for your dc to get scared no matter what because seeing a whole bunch of people walking around in costumes is very disheartening for a lot of kids.

I think the curious george idea is better. I mean, they're both good ideas but chances are, you're gonna run into TONS of pumpkin costumes, yk? I think curious george would be a little more unique. Ya?

Just make sure your dh can 'see'. You wouldn't want him to trip with a babe in arms.
Otherwise I love both ideas!
