A Super Mario Brothers Halloween
Jack & Felix have been really into Mario & Luigi this year. Super Mario Brothers on the Original Nintendo was pretty much the only game that I liked playing as a kid, and one of the only games I was any good at. Actually, that’s probably still true:) If I play with Stephen and the boys I have to be careful to not get too swept up in it, or I’ll be yelling “GET IN YOUR BUBBLE!” when someone is falling off the screen. I also still have a tendency to yank the controller up and down and to the side when I want to make my character jump.
We bought the boys costumes a few weeks before Halloween and they wanted to dress up in them every single day. They would bump their big tummies together and make each other fall down and giggle. It’s hilarious. They would also pretend to rescue me (as Princess Peach), will bow and lower their hats, saying “Your Majesty”.
My nephew Matthew came along with us dressed up as Toad, Felix was Mario, and Jack was Luigi. I think the characters suited them perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m Carlin and this is my personal photo blog featuring my twin boys Jack and Felix. If you’d like to look at my professional client work, head on over to the main site. I need ideas for this year’s Halloween costumes for the boys – leave me a comment with your suggestion!
