Costumes from a Halloween Past

I am really getting into Halloween this year! I think it's because it is our first year in a house so that means trick or treaters! We have always lived in apartments before so I've never had the opportunity to pass out candy. Beggars Night in our area was Thursday evening and let me tell you I had a blast handing out candy to all the cute little Dorothy's and Pirates! My friend Alicia was over and she said that she thought I was having more fun than the kids!
So, in honor of Halloween, I thought I'd share with you our costumes from 3 years ago- which just happens to be the last time we dressed up for Halloween. I wanted to share it because they were mostly put together from thrift store finds or things I already had in my closet. I think we both spent under $15 each which I think is pretty good!
